Iron Mans Civil War Tech Returns In Mystery MCU Project Set – Topplaywriting
Iron Mans BARF technology from Captain America: Civil War appears on the set of one of Marvel Studios upcoming projects in the Multiverse Saga. Iron Mans BARF technology from Captain America: Civil War returns in set photos from a new mystery Marvel Cinematic Universe project. Officially named Binarily Augmented Retro-Framing, the holographic illusion technology was first introduced in the 2016 Joe and Anthony Russo-directed film. Aside from the revelation that it was created by Quentin Beck for Stark Industries in Spider-Man: Far From Home, BARF technology has yet to factor into the MCU again.
Tony Stark debuted BARF in Captain America: Civil War, he presented it primarily as a therapeutical technology. It allowed him to relive his last day with his parents before they were killed by Bucky Barnes while still under the influence of HYDRA as the Winter Soldier. Beyond that, however, its uncertain if BARF has other functions. Marvel Studios didnt bring the tech back again much in the latter part of the Infinity Saga, aside from a flashback scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home. As far as seeing Iron Man use his invention more often, the genius/billionaire playboy simply didnt have time for BARF as he became preoccupied with the arrival of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel Studios is bringing BARF back into the MCU. A prop labeled as the Iron Man technology was recently spotted on the set of an upcoming Multiverse Saga project that is currently filming in Atlanta. MCU moving forward into the Multiverse Saga, viewers have recently begun to revisit Captain America: Civil War. The film was one of the key pillars of the Infinity Saga as it ended with the break-up of the Avengers, giving Thanos the perfect opportunity to attack Earth. While the return of BARF in an unknown MCU project may not be a straightforward revival of Captain America: Civil Wars narrative, elements of the movie are still present in the continuing MCU. Between this new image of BARF tech and the Sokovia Accords factoring in the new Disney+ series, She-Hulk, it seems like Marvel Studios is wrapping up some loose ends left by the 2016 blockbuster, despite both Iron Man and Captain America no longer being in the franchise.
Original Avengers 5 Plan Wouldve Solved Multiverse Sagas Endgame Issue. Marvel Studios has an Avengers: Endgame problem in the MCUs Multiverse Saga, but it could have been avoided with their original plan for Avengers 5. Marvel Studios original Avengers 5 plan involving the Scarlet Witch would have resolved the Multiverse Sagas Avengers: Endgame problem. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo did an impressive job in sticking the landing for the Infinity Saga with Endgame. The 2019 blockbusters effectively resolved the MCUs overarching narrative involving Thanos and the Infinity Stones while also giving some of the franchises beloved heroes, namely Iron Man and Captain America, great send-offs.
Considering what Avengers: Endgame was able to achieve, future Avengers movies are, understandably, always going to be compared to it. Marvel Studios is well aware of this, which is why they decided to repurpose Avengers movie installments as MCU saga-cappers. There are several issues with this. Firstly, it means that theres a six-year gap between Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, which releases in 2025. Secondly, the plan totally eliminates smaller Avengers movies that mainly focus on Earths Mightiest Heroes and their collective adventures, like Avengers: Age of Ultron did.
Marvel Studios moved forward with its original Avengers 5 plan. As it turns out, while the Scarlet Witchs villainous turn was always in the cards for the MCU, it wasnt going to happen until much later. Marvel was saving the Scarlet Witch to be Avengers 5s villain. However, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness writer Michael Waldron convinced the studio to scrap that idea and pit Wanda against Doctor Strange instead. If Marvel Studios stuck with its initial idea, the MCU could have had an Avengers 5 thats different enough from Avengers: Endgame to not draw any comparison. This would have allowed them to release it much earlier instead of pushing it all the way back to Phase 6. Finally, Avengers 5 could have established a proper Earths Mightiest Heroes roster before the team faces a bigger threat in Kang the Conqueror. As it stands now, the new Avengers wont be able to fully assemble until 2024s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
