It’s finally here: the title of the next Avengers film, originally known to fans as Infinity War — Part 2. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe can finally start calling the highly-anticipated follow up to Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a brand new world for fans, and the Avengers 4 title is officially here: Avengers: End Game. The news was announced on Friday, Dec. 7 along with the release of the first trailer, and naturally, the fandom has a lot to say about the title and what it might mean for the future of the Avengers.
Back in April, Infinity War co-director Anthony Russo told Bustle that he and his co-director brother Joe had come up with the name for Avengers 4 pretty early on. "It speaks to the heart of the story," he said at the time. And, boy, he wasn’t kidding. End Game is a particularly ominous title, and might confirm something fans have long since suspected: this will be the end of the Avengers as we know them. And it’s not just the title that gives that impression, it’s the entire first trailer, which is a perfect reflection of the despair fans will feel watching it, knowing that this is, perhaps, the end.
The first trailer for Avengers: End Game is just as melancholy as one might expect, given the ending to Infinity War. As fans all know — spoilers for Infinity War ahead — the Earth’s mightiest heroes were left pretty much defeated at the end of Infinity War. After managing to get his hands on all six Infinity Stones, Thanos killed half the population of Earth (and potentially the universe) with a snap of his fingers. Many new Avengers, including Peter Quill, Mantis, Drax, Groot, Bucky, Falcon, the Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Spider-Man vanished into thin air. Even Nick Fury, the man responsible for bringing the Avengers together in the first place, did not survive Thanos’ fatal snap. The ending left fans in a tizzy, left waiting for any news about Avengers 4 to give them clues as to who might survive the final showdown with Thanos, and who might be brought back to life.
