Can't wait for the release of Avengers 4? Don't worry, Marvel Studios has you covered. Rather, the studio has just set live a countdown timer for the release of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel. You know, so that you can meticulously obsess over the ticking clock until May 3, 2019, the day the film releases.
Before you go and get too excited, though, you should be aware that the timer doesn't reveal anything else about the mysterious movie. One of the most hotly debated elements of Avengers 4 is its title (contenders have included everything from Avengers: Infinity Watch to Avengers: Annihilation), which isn't revealed here. Even the URL for the countdown timer pegs the film as Avengers: Untitled.
This isn’t the first time in recent memory that Marvel has attempted to garner excitement for an upcoming, relatively mysterious film by way of a countdown. Just yesterday, a countdown timer for Spider-Man: Far from Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, was set live. That film looks to catch up with Peter Parker after the events of Avengers 4, while Avengers 4 looks to catch up with the Avengers after the tragic ending of Infinity War.
The untitled sequel to Avengers: Infinity War will release on May 3, 2019. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Marvel’s Avengers 4 stars 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.
