Marvel Studios originally announced the third and fourth Avengers movies as Parts 1 and 2 of Infinity War. However, in order to sell them as different movies, the titles were changed. The first one is just Infinity War now, and the other one remains untitled…at least to the public.
Marvel has been adamant about not revealing the Avengers 4 title publicly just yet, likely to keep the focus on Infinity War. With that movie out now, who knows how long it’ll be until they announce it. There has been a ton of speculation as to what the title will be, and here, we list five ideas that would be cool….
[Warning: The Following Contains MAJOR SPOILERS From Avengers: Infinity War.]
This title would play into the theme that the Avengers will always exist, no matter the roster. If Avengers 4 focuses on the original team passing the torch to a new generation of heroes, it would be the perfect setup for Phase 4 and the “drastically” different MCU that we’ve heard about. Also, with this being the fourth Avengers movie, they can totally market it as Avengers 4ever or something.
There was a comic book arc titled Avengers Forever
, which focuses on Avengers from various timelines working together. While it’s always possible that Avengers 4
could do something like that, a movie can still borrow a title without actually adapting the storyline – see Age of Ultron
This title would tell audience right away that this movie is the end of an era. It is expected to be a last hoorah for many current MCU players. The word “endgame” is defined as the late or final stages of something – which would perfectly describe this movie and the first three Phases of the MCU. The movie will also deal with the ramifications of Infinity War, where Thanos succeeded in his endgame of wiping out half the universe. And not to mention, Doctor Strange said in Infinity War that the heroes are entering the “endgame,” which has led to fan speculation on this title.
Avengers: Secret Invasion
This one is more of a longshot, but it’s still a popular fan suggestion. The Secret Invasion story arc in the comics saw the Skrulls infiltrate Earth, masquerading as many of the Avengers. The Skrulls are confirmed to appear in Captain Marvel, the last movie before Avengers 4 and whose protagonist was teased in the Infinity War post-credits scene. Based on the current plot direction (that we know of), it’s unclear where the Skrulls could fit in to Avengers 4. But if they are involved, that’d be interesting.
This one is pretty self-explanatory, and maybe even predictable. But the film is expected to see the Avengers formally reunite, after being fractured in Captain America: Civil War and slowly come back together in Infinity War. Surely, Marvel will want to heavily market that to audiences – even if a lot of them “died” in Infinity War. And who knows, maybe Captain America will finally get to say “Avengers Assemble” without being cut off.
Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
And now, on our last suggestion. The Avengers have been called Earth’s Mightiest Heroes countless times, both in the MCU and in other media. So, why not use that for their latest movie? In addition to being a popular title, it would symbolize that the Avengers will win the day this time – once again cementing them as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. This was also the title of a hit animated series, which is one of the best Avengers adaptations to this day.
What do you think should be the title of Avengers 4?
