The movie formerly known as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is still without a title and so it shall remain for at least another 100 days, and maybe then some. Many have assumed that the title of Avengers 4 will be revealed on screen at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War, but that may not be the case if directors Joe and Anthony Russo have anything to say about it.
The Russo Brothers recently spoke with MTV’s Josh Horowitz on his Happy Sad Confused podcast. When asked about plans to reveal the title of Avengers 4, Joe Russo put a dent in the assumption most fans have made.
“Certainly part of the concept of the title is it’s advancing the narrative [of Avengers: Infinity War], so we’re gonna sit on that until we feel the time is right and when people have absorbed the first movie enough.”
Sure, one viewing could count as enough absorption, but that doesn’t sound like Joe Russo’s point. If The Russo Brothers have their way, and why shouldn’t they, fans will probably have to kick around their own title theories for a few days, weeks, or even months after Avengers: Infinity War.
If the title of Avengers 4 is not revealed within a couple weeks of Infinity War, then the most likely time and place is Saturday, July 21, during Marvel Studios’ Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. If it’s not in the end credits of Infinity War, then it’s hard to imagine a better time to announce the title than with all or most Avengers on the Hall H stage for presumably the last time.
