We are in the midst of greatness as Avengers: Endgame skyrockets towards being the highest grossing film of all time. The spectacular 3 hour epic movie has fans in a craze and pondering what the future will hold. But what about the past? Ever since the release of Avengers: Infinity War, rumors began to circulate about all aspects of the 4th film, including tons of “insiders” claiming they knew the official title.
Now, the Russo Brothers have set the record straight on on the whole title confusion, and just what was in the works all along.
“When we went to Korea to promote this movie, the representatives from Disney there came up to us and said, ‘Um, there’s something we need to tell you. In the translation of Infinity War here in Korea, when Doctor Strange says to Tony, ‘We’re in the endgame now,’ the way we translated that here was ‘no hope.’ So we’re like, ‘Oh, so I guess in Korea, is this movie called ‘Avengers: No Hope?'”
This is why Gamora actress, Zoe Saldana accidentally let it slip in 2017. But, considering the film did revolve around our heroes building their own gauntlet with stones from the past, it definitely worked. The Russos decided on Endgame instead, but jokingly talked about splitting the film into 2 movies and calling them Infinity 1 & 2.
This was all in jest, but also lets us know that the only titles considered were Infinity Gauntlet and Endgame, and not Annihilation as some Twitter “insiders” led people to believe as gospel for so long.
One reporter swore on Twitter that Endgame could never be the title, and that their “inside scoop confirmed” Annihilation, before backpedaling multiple times, swearing that his “leaks” led to multiple title changes. This boasting has been proven false by the Russos themselves. The moral of the story: Take most things you read on the internet with a grain of salt. If the information doesn’t come from a vetted source or the production company itself, consider it just a possibility, instead of concrete facts.
