Production on next year’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ has been in full swing for a while now, but eye-catching updates keep pouring in on a routine basis, it seems.  Recently, we were given a very intriguing look at an unofficial picture taken from the set – one that shows a direct connection to the former MCU film, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’

Take a look-see for yourself below: as you can see from the picture’s caption, one of the statues seen in Thor’s Hel-dream sequence in ‘Age of Ultron’ is clearly recreated on-set in ‘Infinity War,’ leading to some interesting potential plot extrapolations

The dream sequence, as seen in the second Avengers film, found Thor in Hel, the other-dimensional realm ruled by Hela, who will be brought to life on-screen in the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ by Cate Blanchett.  This new on-set photo comes from location work in Edinburgh, Scotland,  where locals have confirmed via selfies that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) have recently been present as well.

So, the question is begged: might something happen in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ that connects, plot-wise, directly to ‘Infinity War?’  Perhaps the film even ends with Thor and Hulk trapped in Hel where they must be rescued during ‘Infinity War?’  That seems like a stretch, mostly because that would be a heck of a weird way to end a movie like ‘Ragnarok,’ but you know Marvel, they love to hit you with the unexpected sometimes.

We don’t have too long to wait to find out the answers to our questions: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is out later this year, followed by ‘Infinity War’ next year!

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is scheduled to be released in American theaters on November 3, 2017; ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ will hit US theaters on May 4, 2018.
