The Russo brothers are trolling fans anxiously waiting to find out what Avengers 4 is called with their latest social media post. Even though its been three months since Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters and another MCU film has been released, Marvel's still yet to reveal anything about what is coming next. A trailer for Captain Marvel is highly anticipated, but so is any information on the conclusion of Phase 3. Marvel Studios is keeping everything under wraps right now, with not even the film's official title being revealed yet.
This mystery has lasted far longer than many expected too. Many believed the title would be revealed in the post-credits scene of Infinity War or at San Diego Comic-Con at the latest. No such reveal has happened, and the speculation around the actual name has only continued to grow. This has now brought the directors of Avengers 4 to troll fans over the reveal and possible title.
The Russo brothers posted and then quickly deleted a joke regarding the Avengers 4 title reveal, which looks to be their latest effort to torment fans over the announcement. The deleted post (captured by Reddit user MoriartyTheGreat) had the caption of "A4 title reveal... #infiniteKUSAMA" that accompanied a photo of a wall or sign that reads "Infinity Mirrored Room: Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity" This title refers to an art installation by Yayoi Kusama, which is an immersive room experience previously on display at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Even if the Russos were quick to act in deleting the post, it didn't stop fans from capturing screenshots like the one above and feverishly speculating over what it could mean. Title guesses such as Avengers: Aftermath or Avengers: Eternity both became top picks. The Russos did say that the closest guess to the Avengers 4 title so far was Avengers: Forever, so Eternity could make sense if this is anything more than trolling by the directors.
One of the other fun points of speculation that came out of this post was the use of mirrors in the piece and that this could hint at the Mirror Dimension is a big part of Avengers 4. This dimension was used several times in Doctor Strange to fight in a parallel dimension without harming or interacting with other individuals. Strange tried to use the Mirror Dimension against Thanos on Titan, but the Mad Titan destroyed it.
At this point, we're no closer to finding out what the title is, other than the inevitable reveal grows closer with each passing day. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has stated before that the title likely won't be revealed until the end of the year, so fans may have to wait for a teaser trailer to know what Avengers 4 is called. If that's the case, then there's plenty of time for the Russos and the film's stars, like Chris Hemsworth, to keep trolling everyone.
