Avengers 4 star Don Cheadle trolls fans over the film's highly-anticipated title reveal on social media. Marvel Studios celebrated their 10th anniversary in grand style this year, beginning the culmination of the previous decade of storytelling. Back in April, Infinity War hit the scene and was a massive hit, bringing together all corners of the shared universe. Considering the shocking way Infinity War concluded, viewers are waiting on pins and needles to see the story continue next summer.
Marvel has a penchant for secrecy, and they're certainly keeping the vault secured when it comes to Avengers 4. They've yet to unveil the title, leading fans to endlessly theorize what the film will actually be called. Marvel and their talent are starting to have a bit of fun with this, as evidenced by Mark Ruffalo's "bleeped" title reveal on The Tonight Show (which was obviously planned ahead of time). Now, another member of the franchise is getting in on the trolling.
War Machine actor Cheadle took to Twitter to respond to a follower's question asking for a title hint. His response is quite humorous, unveiling absolutely nothing except the most basic, obvious information. Check out his post in the space below:
Fortunately for audiences, it should be relatively soon when Marvel announces the title. Kevin Feige stated that it likely wouldn't come out until near the end of 2018, when marketing revs up. Seeing that the first Infinity War trailer was released in November 2017, it should be a little over a month (as of this writing) until the answer is finally revealed. Marvel withheld the title for this long in an effort to prevent spoilers, but Feige later admitted that decision ultimately backfired on them. It'll be interesting to see what they ultimately went with, as rumored titles include End Game and Annihilation (just to name a few). Of course, the title will provide basic clues about the narrative, allowing savvy viewers to deduct what'll happen.
Fans are starting to get impatient for official Avengers 4 details, but it's all part of the studio's plan. Understandably, they decided to focus on marketing Captain Marvel after all of their 2018 movies were released, since that film opens a couple of months before Avengers 4. But now that the initial wave of Captain Marvel promotion is complete, they can soon turn their attention to what is arguably their biggest film to date. It's been a long time coming, but after $17 billion and widespread praise from audiences and critics, Marvel's earned the right to advertise Avengers 4 how they see fit.
