It appears that Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd, and late night show host Seth Meyers leaked the title for Avengers: Endgame after the release of Avengers: Infinity War.
Paul Rudd had made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers for Ant-Man and the Wasp back in 2018 and it seems that more information had been shared among the star and the late night show host. During the interview, Paul Rudd explained how he had been more involved as a writer for his most recent Ant-Man film. Due to his deeper involvement as a writer for the film, it seems that Paul Rudd might have known about a couple of things that would soon be happening within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Talk then turned to the connections between Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Avengers movies, but Rudd tried to remain tight-lipped and not drop any spoilers. When he thought he messed up and revealed more than he was allowed to, Seth Myers said the following:
“I don’t know how that could mess up, though, because I feel like that would make more people see the movie, which is the endgame.”
You can check out the moment towards the end of the video below.
Perhaps Ant-Man let one slip and shared more information with the host behind cameras. There’s also a chance that the late night show learned the title through a different source as he knows quite a few Marvel stars. Whether it was Paul Rudd or someone else we might never know, but Seth Meyers gave fans early signs of what the title for the next film was way before it was revealed.

Here’s What We Learned From The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios unveiled the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and the preview offered fans more insight into the aftermath of Thanos’ decimation.
After Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos using the power of the Infinity Stones to erase half of the population in the universe from existence, fans spent the rest of the year speculating on how our heroes could reverse the Mad Titan’s decimation and what would have to be sacrificed as a result. Now, the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame offers fans their first look at how the surviving heroes have coped with the loss of their loved ones and may provide insight into how they plan to defeat Thanos.
Tony Stark Is Adrift In Space After His Showdown With Thanos
Following the showdown on Titan, Tony Stark and Nebula were left alone after Thanos eradicated the rest of the heroes who were present. While some assumed that the genius billionaire would find a way to return to Earth, it appears Tony is adrift in space on a vessel with limited supplies and oxygen.
Nebula Is With Tony
While Tony Stark may be lost in space with no chance of being rescued, it appears he will be accompanied by Nebula, the only other survivor of the showdown on Titan. How the two characters are getting along in what could be their final days remains unknown, though Nebula appears to be faring better than her new companion.
Scott Lang Escaped The Quantum Realm
During the first post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang found himself trapped inside the Quantum Realm after his friends were erased by the Thanos snap and some speculated that the Avengers would have to rescue him. However, it appears Scott Lang managed to escape the realm on his own and brought the van containing the way to the alternate dimension with him.
Possible Time Jump
During the final moments of the new trailer, Captain America and Black Widow view a video of Scott Lang asking to be let inside Avengers headquarters. Captain America wonders if the message is old, meaning that some time may have passed since Thanos’ decimation and Scott’s escape from the Quantum Realm.
Hawkeye Is Definitely Ronin
After months of speculation, the Avengers: Endgame trailer essentially confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns. Furthermore, Captain America line about losing family being said over footage of Clint Barton’s appearance suggests that the archer’s family perished in the decimation and their deaths prompted him to take on a new identity.
They Know Spider-Man Is Missing
During the trailer, Bruce Banner can be seen assessing a list of victims of Thanos’ decimation and it appears the team knows Spider-Man is among the missing. This may come as a surprise to some considering Spider-Man was with Tony Stark during the events of Infinity War.
Captain America’s Winter Soldier Suit is Back
After returning in Avengers: Infinity War with a full beard and disheveled costume, Captain America will return to a more familiar look that includes the suit from The Winter Soldier.
Thanos Is Still Wearing The Burned Gauntlet
After Thanos acquired all six Infinity Stones and used them to accomplish his mission, the gauntlet he used to harness their power was severely damaged. However, it appears the Mad Titan continues to wear the worn gauntlet, perhaps in an effort to ensure no one else can wield the power of the stones and undo his actions.
The Avengers Have A Plan
Though all may seem hopeless, our heroes aren’t heading into their next showdown with Thanos without a plan. Hopefully, it will work, because Steve Rogers certainly seems concerned about what they will do if the Avengers fail for a second time.
