As Marvel Studios delay the reveal of the Avengers 4 title beyond all sense, many different candidates have made their way onto fan forums and social media, and some suggestions are better than others.
For one example, you might remember earlier this year when Avengers: Endgame was briefly considered and dismissed in light of co-director Joe Russo’s statement that the sequel’s subtitle wouldn’t be taken from a line of dialogue in Avengers: Infinity War. More recently, Avengers: Annihilation has been deemed a frontrunner by some, though it’s had some competition in The Last Avenger, a title that Mark Ruffalo famously blurted out on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The debates will likely continue for a while longer, and some fans are understandably feeling a little exasperated or worn out by the build-up. Consequently, a few Twitter users have offered some tongue-in-cheek ideas for what next year’s movie could be called, including these three which range from the deliberately lazy to the downright plagiaristic:

Other Twitter users, meanwhile, have suggested that Ruffalo may have left clues to the title in some unexpected ways, be it through his 2012 role opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in Thanks for Sharing, or through the censored version of his Fallon appearance:

After such a long period of speculation, you have to wonder if the official reveal will inevitably be a little anticlimactic. After all, many fans by now have a pretty good idea of what they think the feature could and should be called, putting this title in the difficult position of having to live up to all these long-building expectations in the space of just a couple words.
Of course, whatever the official name for Avengers 4 turns out to be, we can all agree that the content of the film itself is what really matters, and we’ll see if the movie can live up to some insane levels of hype when it hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
