The secrecy surrounding Avengers: Infinity War is not going to end once the credits start rolling. That is extending to the unknown title for Avengers 4, which will not be shown off at the end of the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.
That much was made clear by directors Anthony and Joe Russo during an interview with Yahoo Movies. Unlike the vociferous fans who want to spoil everything, the directing duo is taking a more measured approach, letting viewers “digest” what they’re about to see.
“It’s going to be quite a long while before people see that title,” relayed Joe Russo. “We need people to see this movie, digest this movie, and then we can tell them what next story is they’re going to see.”
When Avengers 3 and 4 were announced, they were known as Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II. However, along the way, the Russo brothers changed their mind, because the story being told eventually evolved into two completely separate stories.
“[Infinity War] is a complete story,” continued Joe Russo. “It’s got a beginning, middle and an end and the next movie has a beginning, middle and an end, in the same way that Civil War handed off to Infinity War.”
Hence the title change. Along those lines, the title for Avengers 4 is sure to be something significant in Infinity War. Why else keep it secret? Whether it’s Infinity Gauntlet or whatever the Russo brothers have cooked up, it will be worthy of having its own identity rather than that of a quick follow up to its predecessor.
Those who are eagerly waiting details about what Avengers 4 will be will have to wait until Avengers: Infinity War. Even then, they’ll still have to wait a while before the title is announced. For the time being, you can read who we selected as the five worst heroes in the MCU.
