Ever since Joss Whedon got on board for The Avengers, the MCU has been building up to a climactic showdown featuring Thanos. The final two Avengers films were titled Infinity War Part 1 & 2, respectively. Recently, all that has changed, as the fourth film has dropped that title, and the third film is simply titled Infinity War. Many believed that the storyline for the final two films had changed, but it appears that the final film’s title is a spoiler of sorts.
Sitting down with Kevin Feige during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press day, Cinemablend got a chance to ask Marvel’s head honcho if the fourth film’s title is a spoiler.
Kevin Feige: Yeah, for sure.
This is interesting for Marvel because they’ve always had a tendency to announce their films far in advance. Going forward, it’ll be interesting to see when they announce the title of the fourth film, possibly leaving it at as a tease at the end of Infinity War?
Regarding the name change, it’s up in the air if Thanos will still appear in the second sequel. While the answer is likely a yes, Feige commented on his presence with a very cryptic answer regarding the two films.
Kevin Feige: They’re two very different movies. That’s all I’ll say.
Avengers: Infinity War will hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is almost upon us, but we’re already talking about what’s next for our favorite ragtag group of cosmic heroes. It’s already been announced that writer/director James Gunn will return for a third outing in the Marvel franchise, with the upcoming sequel getting positive buzz on social media based from early screenings. Of course, the Guardians are also due to return for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films as well, teaming up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos as he gathers the Infinity Stones together to wield ultimate power.
Gunn commented on Facebook that the third film will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” While Phase 4 hasn’t been officially announced, it’s assumed that this third film will be Marvel Studios’ kick-off movie for their next batch of films, most likely eyeing a May 2020 release.
