Avengers 4 is the latest Marvel film to go into production, but the title remains under wraps, leading to speculation regarding whether it may be a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War. Woever, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, insists the attention surrounding the title has been "blown out of proportion."
In the past, Marvel Studios has been notorious for announcing upcoming movies and titles years in advance, but it's holding the Avengers: Infinity War sequel's title close to its chest. The secrecy surrounding the title has caused a stir online, and has somewhat blown its importance out of proportion according to Feige. Speaking to Screen Rant, Feige was quizzed on the spoiler-ish nature of the title, and was asked whether we'd have to wait until Infinity War for it to finally be unveiled.
"Yeah, I think some of that has been blown out of proportion," he said. "We do want the focus to be on Infinity War for now." While this isn't exactly a denial that the fourth film's title could be a spoiler for Infinity War, it does seem as though Marvel may simply be holding back in order to keep fans focused squarely on the next Avengers sequel rather than one still several movies away.
