It’s no surprise that Avengers: Infinity War is one of the highest grossing films of all time. With the intense cliffhanger, fans have been eagerly waiting for details regarding the next Avengers and it seems like their prayers were answered.
The film was tentatively titled Avengers 4 but according to Hindustan Times, the official title might just have been leaked. Marvel films’ cinematographer Trent Opaloch shared a list of credits on his website which included the name of the latest installment – Avengers: End Game.
Fans were quick to spot the name of the film before Opaloch changed it to Avengers 4 after his little accident. Followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) also recognised End Game as a phrase used by Doctor Strange in Infinity War.
At the end of the 2018 film, Thanos wipes away half of the universe’s population including the superheroes. Doctor Strange who calculates the various outcomes after fighting Thanos reveals that there is only one case in which the Avengers win the battle.
It is this case that will be explored in Avengers 4 that is set to release in May 2019. Leaked set pictures reveal that the living heroes would potentially travel back in time to save their friends.
Infinity War and Avengers 4 were shot back to back and were reported to be titled Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, respectively. It was also reported that Avengers 4 might be called the Infinity Gauntlet.
Regarding the leaked titles, Marvel chief Kevin Fiege stated that they trying extremely hard to maintain the secrecy of the title but it backfired badly. He added, “It’s gotten entirely out of hand.” Fiege continued that fans would find out the official title of Avengers 4 close to Captain Marvel’s release in March next year.
While the confirmation might still take a few months, it’s important to realise that working titles have always been used during the production of a Marvel film. For audiences, the first Avengers was tentatively called Group Hug, Avengers: Age of Ultron was named After Party and Infinity War was titled Mary Lue.
