The Avengers film without a name has just been given the Serpent Society treatment. The former Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is currently only known as Avengers 4, but The Russo Brothers tossed out a joke title for fans to play with a bit.
“How about Avengers 4: Great Lakes Avengers?” Said Joe Russo.
For those unaware, the Great Lakes Avengers were also kinda a joke team whose members included the much talked about Squirrel Girl, Mister Immortal, Big Bertha, Flatman, and Doorman (as seen in the image above). The team began after Mr. Immortal realized he couldn’t fight crime very well on his own and started to use the Avengers name without permission, but Hawkeye and Mockingbird mentored them anyways. So while Great Lakes Avengers isn’t likely to occur anytime soon, Squirrel Girl is a fair bit more likely.
Speaking about fake titles such as Captain America: Serpent Society, Joe Russo had the following to say:
“It was Kevin [Feige]’s idea. Certainly when we go through our process, when we’re starting to talk about what’s next, I’m sure there’s probably a list of famous Captain America titles that are distributed to us and [writers Christopher]Markus and [Stephen] McFeely just keep it as a reference, because Civil War is something I’ve been talking about for a while, and so as we’re deciding which direction to push him, we consider everything, because maybe there’s a combination of stories that’ll work. I think Serpent Society was probably on that list and Kevin thought it would be a humorous misdirect for the crowd.”
Captain America: Civil War (yes, not Serpent Society) will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 13th.
