For the longest time, fans have been speculating over the title for Marvel’s fourth Avengers movie, which will directly follow the shocking events of Infinity War. Plenty of titles have been thrown around in speculation. Despite scheduled to come out next year, Marvel has been in no hurry to reveal the title, attempting to keep the spotlight on Infinity War instead.
One popular theory is that the title will be Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. That would make sense, considering these movies’ focus on Thanos and the Infinity Stones. Plus, it’s the name of the graphic novel that heavily inspired Infinity War. Unfortunately, that’s not it.
Speaking with Collider, Marvel’s Kevin Feige definitively rules out Infinity Gauntlet as the title. “That is definitely not what it is called. Definitely not called that.” He goes on to say that this title is his favorite “wrong theory” about the movie.
Feige goes on to rehash past comments on how the mystery surrounding the Avengers 4 title “backfired,” and that the whole thing has gone out of proportion. “It will just be a name and the reason to hold it back was to keep the attention on Infinity War. That backfired a little bit because now everyone thinks what’s the name of the next one gonna be? But it was really just to keep the focus [on Infinity War]. We did not want to call it Part One and Part Two. Although it will be quite evident that the films obviously connect, as all our films do, but this in particular connects very directly. And then we changed the Part One and Part Two, we said let’s just keep this Infinity War and we’ll talk about the next movie later.”
In the interview, Feige won’t confirm exactly when the title will be announced, but hopefully it’ll be sooner than later.
