Now that Avengers: Infinity War has been released, and most fans have seen the movie, all they can think about is what Avengers 4 could be called. There are many popular theories on the matter, and with the brutal ending that Infinity War left fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with, it’s no wonder that people are already trying their hardest to figure everything out. One theory was that the movie could be called Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet, but that apparently is not the case.
While speaking to Collider, Kevin Feige was asked about that particular title, and said:
“That is definitely not what it is called. Definitely not called that.”
“When we announce the title I am not sure, but as I’ve probably said to you, it’s gotten completely blown out of proportion. It will just be a name and the reason to hold it back was to keep the attention on Infinity War. That backfired a little bit because now everyone thinks what’s the name of the next one gonna be? But it was really just to keep the focus [on Infinity War]. We did not want to call it Part One and Part Two. Although it will be quite evident that the films obviously connect, as all our films do, but this in particular connects very directly. And then we changed the Part One and Part Two, we said let’s just keep this Infinity War and we’ll talk about the next movie later. We had done things in the past that had taken attention off of whatever the film at hand is because we talked about this. For instance, Infinity War announcing before Ultron came out, and it worked out, it was fine, but it felt like let’s keep the attention on the film at hand.”
So there you have it. When the movie title is announced, it’ll probably be what no fans are currently thinking. The most popular theory going around at the moment is that it’s called Avengers: Endgame, but we’re uncertain on that one as well. Marvel usually keeps a tight lid on these types of things, and we doubt that anyone would have the information this early in the game. Only time will tell, however.
Whatever the title is, Feige has revealed that it’ll deliver a big ending:
“Characters like Spider-Man or Batman or James Bond or Iron Man, who have been around for so long and are always refreshed in comic books or novels or movies, you don’t necessarily get that kind of an endpoint — and we wanted to do that, which is what these next two Avengers films are. It doesn’t mean the MCU is coming to a close, by any means. But it means the narrative that started when we began 10 years ago will have a conclusion.”
Infintiy War is currently playing in theaters everywhere, while Avengers 4 hits theaters May 3rd of next year.
