Captain Marvel’s First Teaser Won’t Unveil The Avengers 4 Title


Regardless of when Captain Marvel‘s first trailer hits the interwebs (September, perhaps?), it won’t signal the unveiling of the Avengers 4 title.

The good folks at MCU Cosmic did a little digging earlier this week, where they uncovered an old Collider interview with Marvel boss Kevin Feige. It’s dated June 2018, meaning this particular comment from Feige arrived during the interlude between Avengers: Infinity War and Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Essentially, it’s a reminder that the Captain Marvel teaser and Avengers 4‘s title reveal are being angled as two separate announcements, and are in no way related to one another – you know, aside from the fact that they inhabit the same cinematic universe. So don’t expect them to arrive hand-in-hand; if anything, the first trailer for Brie Larson’s standalone ’90s-set adventure will arrive first, before all eyes begin to turn to the fourth Avengers movie.

That’ll be after the Captain Marvel teaser probably, announcing that title. It’ll be towards the end of the year with however we launch that film.

This raises another question: will the Avengers 4 trailer and title be unveiled simultaneously? Or is Marvel Studios planning to approach each reveal as two separate announcements? Common logic points to a double whammy, as Joe and Anthony Russo waited months before rolling out the epic first teaser for Infinity War – despite being inundated with requests and demands over Twitter and Instagram.

So we imagine the Russo Brothers will adopt a similar strategy for Avengers 4 – that is, to keep us waiting just long enough before delivering a one-two punch that is, quite frankly, out of this world. At least, that’s the idea, but after 10 years and 20 movies, the fourth Avengers film will no doubt have us clutching to the edge of our seats on May 3rd.
