Marvel Studios isn't going to be announcing the title for Avengers 4 anytime soon it appears. Now that fans around the world have had time to see Avengers: Infinity War once, twice, or even 42 times, the anticipation for what comes next is through the roof. So little has been revealed about Untitled Avengers that the crux of theories and speculation have relied on set photos and the occasional slip up by an actor. One of the greatest mysteries, though, is the title itself.
Marvel has been extra tight-lipped about what is coming next, which is a strategy that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige believes has backfired. Even still, they are no closer to releasing the title now than they were weeks ago. In fact, the president of Marvel Studios is here to share that the wait will be even longer than expected.
Collider spoke to Feige recently and asked him about the eventual reveal. With the studio skipping Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year, options have dwindled as to when or how an announcement could come. It sounds like it may just come when marketing begins, but that won't be until the end of the year, resulting in a long wait for the Avengers 4 title.
That’ll be after the Captain Marvel teaser probably, announcing that title. It’ll be towards the end of the year with however we launch that film.
One of the most popular theories for how Marvel would debut the title of Avengers 4 was that it would come at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp. We know both characters will appear, so many expected the final frame to say "Ant-Man and Wasp will return in (Insert Avengers 4 title here)." Holding the title till the end of the year gives even more time for fans to theorize over what it actually will be called. Avengers: Forever was a close guess according to those involved and the continuing secrecy is as mysterious as anything.
Marvel just let Tom Holland reveal the title for his sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, even though that film is released after Avengers 4. With Feige previously saying the title has become a bit overblown, the longer they wait, the more hype it builds. Still, once Ant-Man and The Wasp hits theaters next week domestically, Marvel will have a large gap between movies. The first trailer for Captain Marvel isn't coming for a few months either, so the title reveal is very much a distant announcement right now. Whatever it is, it'll be nice to finally have an official title as Avengers 4's marketing begins.
