The Russo Brothers Just Trolled Us All With Avengers 4’s Title


You can go ahead and scratch ‘Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity’ off the list of possible Avengers 4 subtitles.

As spotted by MCU Cosmic, earlier today the official Russo Brothers Instagram account shared an up-close look at what appeared to be some sort of golden calling card. The font is admittedly a little blurry, but the title clearly reads ‘Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity,’ which, coupled with the caption, can be construed as a surprise reveal.

But that’s simply not the case. First thing’s first, the subtitle is ridiculous, and the original Instagram has since been yanked offline – but not before it was captured via screenshot (see below). For the record, the only hashtag provided redirected users to a Yayoi Kusama art exhibit in Los Angeles, which likely has nothing to do with the MCU or Avengers 4.

Ditto for ‘Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity,’ a subtitle so garbled and convoluted it sounds as if it’s been created on one of the Internet’s random name generators. It’s certainly not good enough for Marvel’s standards, nor is it likely to create much of a buzz among the franchise’s impassioned fans.

Besides, MCU chief Kevin Feige recently stressed that Avengers 4‘s final name won’t be unveiled until later in the year – November, in all likelihood, the same window in which Captain Marvel‘s first teaser trailer is likely to debut. Remember, for the first time since 2015, Marvel Studios has nothing to show for the November corridor, so we fully expect some sort of MCU announcement to occur then.

Anyways, now that ‘Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity’ is off the table, it joins the likes of Endgame, Disassembled (and presumably Disintegrated) on the list of subtitles that won’t be used for Avengers 4. We’re getting closer, folks.
