The title of Avengers 4 is being kept as a closely guarded secret, but that hasn’t stopped people speculating what it might be.
There have been suggestions that it might be called Avengers: End Game, but another title that is being thrown around the internet is Avengers: Annihilation.
This may or may not have been the title that Mark Ruffalo revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon a few weeks ago, but it’s a theory that is gathering speed.
Directors Joe & Anthony Russo have stated that the name of the film was not uttered by any characters in Avengers: Infinity War, but it is possible that it was said in another movie.
A Reddit user believes that this might be the case. After recently rewatching Age of Ultron, the user known as HeisenDiaN noticed a small bit of dialogue between Vision and his future squeeze Scarlet Witch, where the word ‘annihilation’ was said.
This is of course pure speculation, but it might hold some truth if the leaked description of the Avengers 4 trailer turns out to be real and not just some concocted fantasy.
Although the leak didn’t suggest what the title was, it did say that Vision, despite [spoilers] dying at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War, is due to return in some capacity in the next movie.
Marvel president Kevin Feige has said that the name of the film will be revealed before the end of 2018, as they begin to promote the release of Captain Marvel more heavily.
Avengers 4 will be released in May 2019 and is expected to be the final outing for a few Marvel mainstays, including Chris ‘Captain America’ Evans who has confirmed he is stepping away from the role.
