There was considerable interest in the title of Avengers 4 leading up to the great title that was revealed in the film's first teaser. Part of this interest was due to comments by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige who confirmed in 201
Afengers 4 was kept wrapping long after Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters, and it was first the movie's first teaser we learned its true name: Avengers: Endgame .
For some, this title was revealed a bit anti-limp-like. There are spoiler? Endgame? So when Collider's own Steve Weintraub spoke to Feige on the press day for Captain Marvel he asked Feige why they kept the title under wraps so long. Feige noted that the entire "spoiler" agreement had been blown out of proportion, but still claims to hold the title under cover was the right decision:
"Well, I think I had said it had all been blown out of proportion to some degree, but it was a spoiler, because if you knew before Infinity War came out that the next movie was called Endgame then you know that was not an end to Infinity War . But it was the title of the movie from the moment we thought about making the two movies, mostly because … it is grafted right there. it is grafted in Ultron . "In fact and Feige and Russo Brothers used much of the structure of Infinity War the movie and Avengers 4 were separate, independent films despite the fact that they were shot backwards. But when the audience saw Infinity War it was clear that it was only the first half of a great story. So Feige is correct in noting that there really is no end to Infinity War as much as a stopping point (although I assume one could argue since it is from Thano's point of view, he completes his goal on movie conclusion), but I'm not necessarily sure I agree that Endgame is a spoiler.
Fans aware of, were aware that Infinity War was part 1 of a two-part story, so apparently Avengers 4 would pack things up. Then it was not quite clear that general audiences who did not scour the internet for spoilers day-in and day-out were well aware that Infinity War was a "Part 1" so that the movie's end had an even more significant influence on them.
Regardless of the title, fans are clinging to see Avengers: Endgame to see how it all ends. We find out when the movie hits theaters on April 26th.
