Let it never be said that the Russo Brothers don’t have a great sense of humor. In fact, before their monstrous success in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Russos cut their teeth in sitcoms, most notably Community. Thus, when given the opportunity to troll one of the most excitable and anxious fan-bases ever, the MCU fans, Joe and Anthony Russo jumped at the chance on their Instagram account, which in turn started a whole new series of theories for Avengers 4.
The Russo Brothers posted (then deleted) an IG pic with the caption ‘A4 title reveal…’ with the hashtag #infiniteKUSAMA, likely referring to artist Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity.’ Do you think the Russos are trolling or were hacked? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/9gQOUBGlOJ

Avengers 4 Title was teased yesterday. Its been said that “Avengers: Forever” is the closest to the actual title. “Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity” is an art of mirrored lights that seem to go on forever. “Eternity” is also the name of a Cosmic entity in Marvel Comics. pic.twitter.com/2qqVHcjTdR

Posting a picture is simply that of a sign that read ‘Infinity Mirrored Room: Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity’, and wrote as the caption, ‘A4 Title reveal…’. The brothers then “promptly” deleted the post, but not before some screenshots by fans could be taken. Fans have been down right begging for the title of the fourth Avengers film since even before the release of Infinity War. So, any little clue that comes out acts like chum in the water, and the fans are the sharks.
Fully aware of this fact, and loving a good prank, the Russos take every opportunity they can to take stabs at the salivating fan-base. And, while Kevin Feige previously stated that the title would be revealed closer to the debut of the Captain Marvel movie, many fans expected something to be announced at the San Diego Comic Con this year, but they got nothing more than another prank from the Russos.
This image has many on Reddit posting their theories for the title, with Avengers: Eternity and Avengers: Aftermath being the prevailing choices. Other noted titles are Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet, which was seemingly the casts’ working title while shooting, and Avengers: Endgame, which ties in to comments from both Dr. Strange, as well as Tony Stark during the Age of Ultron film.
Truth be told, while theories run rampant as to what the title may be, and while the Russos continue to troll us all, we will never actually have the answer until Marvel Studios officially releases the name of the next Avengers movie. Until then, let the speculation continue…
