SPOILER WARNING: The following article may contain spoilers for the outcome of “Avengers:
Infinity War,” in theaters May 4, 2018.
Just a few hours after Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said he couldn’t reveal the title of the fourth Avengers movie as it would spoil the outcome of “Avengers: Infinity War,” it appears that Zoe Saldana may have revealed the title to reporters in a promotional interview for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
When asked if her Gamora character was in “Infinity War,” she responded, “I think that the Guardians just shot their parts when it comes to ‘Infinity War’ — the first part — and we all have to go back for ‘Gauntlet’ later this year.”

This may suggest that the movie could be titled “Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet” or simply, “Avengers: The Gauntlet,” playing off the classic comic book storyline where Thanos acquired all of the Infinity Gems (or Stones as they’re called in the MCU) and went on a rampage in the Marvel Universe. With production of “Infinity War” underway, Marvel confirmed the film and its 2019 follow-up are shooting back to back but not simultaneously, as initially planned.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, “Avengers: Infinity War” boasts a sprawling ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. The film arrives in theaters May 4, 2018, with the untitled sequel opening May 3, 2019.
