If you're a Marvel fan weighing the odds of what the secret title of Avengers 4 will be, you might want to stop. According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, the mystery has now created an anticipation that the real title won't be able to match.
During an Avengers: Infinity War press junket, Feige spoke to IGN about the mystery title. "It's gotten entirely out of hand, and now will have no chance to living up to any expectations of what it's gonna be."
Originally billed as Infinity War Part 2 a few years ago, it was later confirmed that Avengers 4 would have another title -- although Marvel wasn't ready to divulge what it would be just yet. "It sort of backfired, if I'm honest with you," Feige continued, "because the notion was to not talk about it so the focus was to be on [Infinity War]."
The mystery surrounding the title has led to fans theorizing about which familiar comic title Avengers 4 might take inspiration from -- and these theories only gained more traction when directors Joe and Anthony Russo said that fans should be scared of the title.
As it stands, fans will simply have to watch Infinity War to get some information out of its sequel. "They’re absolutely directly connected," Feige revealed, "as many of our movies are but more so than many of our other movies. People will want to know what happens next immediately at the end of it.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin, among others.
