So far, we know Avengers 4 will be the culmination of everything Marvel has been building since 2008 with Iron Man.
Nothing much has been said, considering that plot details could be consider spoilers for both Avengers: Infinity War and Thor Ragnarok, so all we know for sure about this film is that is supposed to begin production in a few weeks and it’s been filmed by directors Anthony and Joe Russo, with a screenplay written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
But that might change with this news:
Apparently, it was discovered by Omega Underground that a casting call is likely recruiting extras to play Japanese gangsters and cafe patrons for an August 17 to August 18 shoot.
The casting call specifically said they’re looking for Japanese extras, not just Asian, of “slender build” to play the gangsters and states that the filming “will be a night shoot and involve rain work and facial prosthetics.” This could probably hint that they will be members Yakuza, maybe even giving us hope for a Daredevil appearance in the MCU films.
The casting call does not give an indication about a location, but later that day it was revealed in a tweet of the Atlanta Filming Twitter Account a possible location in the film, Tokyo.
So far this has not been officially confirmed, but what is sure is that we will know more about Avengers 4 in the upcoming weeks when production starts.
What do you think about this news? Do you think we will see the Defender in Avengers 4?

Avengers: Infinity War is set to be released on April 25, 2018 and Avengers 4 on May 4, 2019.
