Marvel still hasn’t announced the official title for Avengers 4, yet more evidence is mounting for Annihilation. First, there was a leak from an alleged source within Marvel. Then, fans pointed to the post-credits scene in Ant-Man and the Wasp, arguing that the snap from Thanos had an interesting effect on the Quantum Realm, where Scott Lang is now trapped.
Now, Reddut user HelsenDiaN has pointed to yet more evidence that Avengers: Annihilation will be the title of Avengers 4.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, an old line said by Scarlet Witch has gained new meaning following the events of Avengers: Infinity War. When Vision is first born, Scarlet Witch offers terrifying insight into his future.
“I looked into your head and saw annihilation,” Scarlet Witch tells him, rather ominously.
Her comments could simply refer to Ultron’s plans to destroy Sokovia. But considering the events of Avengers: Infinity War and the rumors surrounding the title, you have to admit that Scarlet Witch’s comments could add more credence to Avengers 4’s title being Avengers: Annihilation.
If so, and if that line is more significant to Marvel’s larger plans, it goes to show what incredible foresight the studio has when planning its roadmap.
Marvel released the first teaser for Avengers: Infinity War at the end of November in 2017. If the studio sticks to a similar schedule for Avengers 4, we could get our first glimpse at the film—and maybe confirmation of the title—in just over a month.
Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3, 2019.
