Avengers 4 might finally have a title now!
A new rumor suggests that the title of AVENGERS 4 is actually Avengers: Annihilation. While the title is lifted from the comics, it’s something of a departure from the original arc; is this rumor really likely to be true?
Marvel’s decision to hold back on announcing the title of Avengers 4 has generated intense debate among fans. What could it be, and why do Marvel consider it to be something of a spoiler? Countless different possibilities have been raised and discarded, and the most popular idea so far remains Avengers: Endgame – even though the Russos insisted the film title isn’t mentioned in Avengers: Infinity War. Curiously, Kevin Feige has suggested the intensity of the debate has “sort of backfired” for Marvel in that he fears there’s no way Marvel can possibly live up to the hype.
The latest rumor originates with Jeremy Conrad, who claims a reliable source has revealed the title to him. According to Conrad, the movie will be called Avengers: Annihilation. This idea is derived from a classic comic book story from 2006, written by Keith Giffen. While the plot of Avengers 4 isn’t expected to be anything like the Annihilation arc, Conrad is right to point out that the MCU plays fast and loose with its comic book inspirations. After all, in the comics, Avengers: Age of Ultron was a time-travel story.
Of course, this has not been 100% confirmed.
The next Avengers film will be the culmination of a lot of the main characters storyline. We already Chris Evans who plays Captain America will not be back after the 4th film and its a good bet Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man will finally be bowing out of the role.
