People are waiting with bated breath for Avengers: Infinity War to arrive so that they can see how things will finally turn out for our favorite heroes. However, there's another question that might be even bigger. What exactly is the movie after Avengers: Infinity War even called? The title of a movie just over a year away is still being kept under wraps and it turns out that it's going to be a little while before we get it, as there are apparently no plans to release it until sometime after Infinity War hits theaters. The Russo Brothers recently confirmed that the title is a spoiler of sorts, which means they want to wait for everybody to see the film before they reveal the title. According to Joe Russo...
We reported several months ago on the idea that the reason the Avengers 4 title hadn't been revealed was that it was a spoiler that would give away something about Avengers: Infinity War. Joe Russo essentially confirmes this idea to the Happy Sad Confused podcast, but he also says that the plan with the Avengers 4 title is to hold off until people have time to see and absorb the movie.
I was certainly among the people who fully expected the title of Avengers 4 to be part of a post-credits sequence in Avengers: Infinity War, but it certainly seems that won't be the case now. If that were to happen, the title of the film would be online on Thursday night as soon as the first set of preview screenings let out, and apparently, the Russo's, and Disney Marketing, are conscious of this fact and don't want to see that happen. Instead, the plan is to let everybody see Avengers: Infinity War first and then drop the title later.
If we won't get the answer in May, the next obvious timeframe for the reveal would be early July. Two months after Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters the next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp, will arrive on July 6, 2018. Clearly, Marvel expects the Infinity War buzz to have died down by then, or they wouldn't be releasing another movie that soon. However, it could be that the plan is to wait even longer than that. The MCU will go dark for an unusually long time between the releases of Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, so it's possible the plan will be to drop a big trailer with the title somewhere in between in order to keep the brand front and center for fans.
While we only have four months to wait for Avengers: Infinity War, it looks like we'll be waiting at least a little bit longer than that to see how the story will end.
