Marvel boss rules out popular fan theory for Avengers 4 title

Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel Studios isn’t ready to tell you yet what Avengers 4 is called, but its boss Kevin Feige is perfectly happy to reveal what it won’t be called.

The higher-ups at the Disney-run studio have been stringing fans along by refusing to reveal exactly what they’ve named the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War, with Feige even pledging that the big unveiling is still a long ways away.

Marvel fans are very imaginative, so they’ve spent months trying to uncover the big secret, and their best guess thus far is Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet.

It would seemingly make sense, especially considering that Infinity War ends with Thanos (Josh Brolin) eradicating half of all life in the universe by putting on the Infinity Gauntlet.

Yet, according to Kevin Feige, fans are going to have to go back to the drawing board. In an interview with Collider, he named the Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet title his favourite “wrong theory”.

“That is definitely not what it is called,” he insisted. “When we announce the title I am not sure, but as I’ve probably said to you, it’s gotten completely blown 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. We had done things in the past that had taken attention off of whatever the film at hand is because we talked about this. For instance, Infinity War announcing before Ultron came out, and it worked out, it was fine, but it felt like let’s keep the attention on the film at hand.”

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo previously tipped that fans should be worried about what Avengers 4‘s title means for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
