Thor's long locks are back in a new photo from the set of Avengers 4 in Atlanta, Georgia. Thor: Ragnarok may just be hitting North American theaters tomorrow, but it doesn't seem like Chris Hemsworth is going to have the time to kick back and savor the already successful threequel as he is once again back as the God of Thunder filming for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 capper.
Helmed by Joe and Anthony Russo, details regarding Avengers 4 are still scant and understandably so given that it is not due in theaters until May 2019. But while Marvel Studios is keeping information regarding the movie tightly under wraps (we don't even have a title for it yet), we are continuously learning more about it thanks to bits and pieces of intel emerging from the set of the movie. The latest one gives us a hint that Thor may have his signature blonde mane back in the film after it was cut in Ragnarok.
Courtesy of a video from YouTube channel Noticias Geek TV, who was present at the location shoot for Avengers 4, Thor can be seen through a glass wall sporting his Asgardian fight suit with his long hair flowing down past his shoulders. Odinson is speaking with someone who seems to be Tony Stark in plain civilian clothes, presumably the same ones that we have seen him in previously released set shots for the film. Outside the building, a burning car, an ambulance, and people trying to seek a refuge with the help of uniformed military men can be seen.

UPDATE: Just Jared has posted additional Avengers 4 set photos (see below), confirming that Hemsworth does indeed have his long hair as Thor in the film:

It's difficult to gauge what is exactly happening in the scene, especially with the quality of the video, but it appears as if the Hulk and Captain America are also present in the vicinity. And if Hawkeye and Black Widow are also somewhere in there, we might see the original Avengers gathered together -- a nice throwback to Phase I and an interesting decision for the Russo brothers given that with the project chockfull of characters, they can basically split the six heroes and give them their own teams. Meanwhile, Thor's hair and Tony possibly sporting the same Black Sabbath shirt (an unusual thing for a billionaire) from Avengers perpetuates theories of a potential flashback or time traveling (perhaps with the help of Doctor Strange's time stone) in the movie. Back in May, Mjolnir, which is destroyed in Ragnarok also resurfaced on the set of Infinity War, further alluding to the concept of time jumps.
Shall this be the case, we can probably expect Avengers 4 to have more not-so-obvious narrative connections with previous MCU movies. Seeing the team traveling back in time to change something that seems so minuscule at the point but will eventually have huge repercussions in the future could be a possibility. Nevertheless, it is a nice treat for long-time MCU fans to see the original superhero squad come together amidst the slew of other game players involved in the film (also, especially when at any point anyone in that line-up can bite the bullet as teased by Marvel Studios exec Kevin Feige himself). After all, it's still an Avengers film, and if there is anything that the Russos proved in Captain America: Civil War, they know how to work with a huge cast without losing sight of the project's supposed main lead/s.
