Infinity War Directors Say Avengers 4 Title Won’t Be Revealed For A While
With only two weeks left until we get to see Avengers: Infinity War, hype is at an all-time high. So much so, that next year’s Avengers 4 is almost an afterthought at this point.
Obviously, though, that’s all going to change after we see Infinity War, the events of which will no doubt drive an insane amount of speculation in regards to what the sequel has in store. One important thing that we still need to learn about the follow-up though is its title, and while many expected it to be revealed in the post-credits scene of Avengers 3, it turns out that won’t be the case.
Chatting to Hey U Guys while promoting Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked when fans will learn the title of the 2019 sequel, and the former admitted that it won’t be for “quite some time.” His brother stated that they’re “excited to tell people,” but that “it’s going to be a while” before they can do so.
Presumably, whatever the title is for Avengers 4, it’ll be a spoiler for the events of the film preceding it – hence why they can’t reveal it for a while. In fact, just the other week, the directors teased fans by saying that the title should scare us, hinting that perhaps it may even reference a character’s death. Avengers: The Fall of Iron Man, maybe?
At minimum, it looks as though the promise that Infinity War will see “heads roll” is going to be fulfilled. With many of the most prominent stars, like Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, approaching the ends of the their lucrative multi-picture contracts, and Kevin Feige hungry to get some new (and let’s face it, cheaper) talent for the next few entries into the franchise, it’s looking more and more likely that Thanos is going to personally take down a real heavy hitter.
Either way, all – or at least a lot more than we know now – will be revealed on April 27th, when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters, opens huge, and changes the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever.
