Since there’s a powerful space rock called the Time Stone, some Marvel fans are convinced the Avengers will travel back in time for 2019’s still-untitled Avengers 4. However, a new paparazzi photo suggests that it’s not space magic but good old-fashioned Earth technology, courtesy of Tony Stark, that will bring the Avengers back a few years.

On Thursday, a paparazzo on Instagram named Joe Passori (@passorijoe) shared a photo from the set of Avengers 4 in which crew members are handling a case containing props. The case has a revealing label. Written in Sharpie, the case reads “Binary Augmented Retro Framing,” otherwise known by the acronym “BARF.” If that sounds familiar, it’s because MCU fans have seen BARF used in the beginning of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

While visiting students at MIT, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) began Captain America: Civil War by revisiting a traumatic family memory: the Christmas weekend his parents died — or, as he’d later learn, murdered.

Tony’s extremely rare episode of opening up to the public was to demonstrate the comprehensive AR tech of BARF, which “hijacks” the hippocampus of the brain “to clear traumatic memories.” The scene in Civil War, notably, had a younger RDJ (like, Johnny Be Good Robert Downey Jr.), made possible in a similar fashion to Carrie Fisher in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or Johnny Depp in the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean.

"God, I gotta work on that acronym."

Because of Tony Stark’s sophisticated technology that basically creates a living “memory room,” it’s possible Tony gave BARF upgrades so the Avengers can use it to find a way to fight Thanos. Based on other paparazzi photos, such as the one with Chris Evans in his older Captain America costume, the Avengers will be revisiting the Battle of New York, the watershed event of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that served as the climax of 2012’s The Avengers.

Sure, time travel is still possible thanks to Doctor Strange and the Time Stone. But maybe it won’t take the power of the cosmos to bring the MCU back to when everything changed in The Avengers. It may just take some brain power.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on May 4.

Rumor has it Nintendo is teaming up with Square Enix to bring another new character to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Leaks have been few and far between (possibly because the Final Fantasy developer is doing its best to keep the secret), but new information may have finally confirmed exactly which new Square Enix character is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate.

One day, someone is going to write an entire book about everything that went wrong with Netflix and Marvel’s big deal to bring The Defenders to life in a series of live-action streaming shows, but until that happens all we have to go on are short quotes from Netflix earning interviews. On that note, the company’s Q2 earnings report suggests that despite the imminent launch of Disney’s rival streaming service, the Netflix/Marvel universe isn’t going anywhere. Could that mean Punisher Season 2, Luke Cage Season 3 or even Defenders Season 2? Don’t rule it out, for now at least.

The Fortnite Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 2, this one’s all bout the new wolf character that’s stalking everyone else. Here’s how to solve the new loading screen puzzle and find that secret star.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 3 began Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and even though hardly anybody has had the time to blaze through all seven of the new challenges, the Hunting Party loading screen leaked days ago. Whenever a player completes all seven challenges in a given week, it unlocks a unique Hunting Party loading screen. In each, there’s a clue hinting at an in-game location where players can them claim a secret, usually either a Banner or Battle Star.

The bad guys are teaming up in the new trailer for Glass. The third movie in M. Night Shyamalan’s original superhero series will culminate as “The Horde” (James McAvoy) and “Mr. Glass” (Samuel L. Jackson) team up to break out of their confinement inside a mental institution.

On Thursday, Universal released the second trailer for Glass, set for release in theaters in January. Aside from the return of McAvoy, Jackson, and Bruce Willis as retired security guard David Dunn, the film introduces Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychiatrist who treats patients who believe they are superhumans (and they’re kind of right).

The latest in the endless string of Avengers 4 fan theories could plug one of the most glaring MCU plot holes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted in 2014.

In case you forgot, the big twist of Winter Soldier is that Hydra hijacked the entire system, and one of the names that’s deemed a threat to the evil organization is Stephen Strange — before he even becomes a sorcerer. So what gives and how does it connect to Avengers 4?
