Joe and Anthony Russo continue to stay, for the most part, hush about Avengers 4. A month ago, they shared one rare tease. It was a behind the scenes photo, with instructions. “Look hard for clues about Avengers 4.”
A few fans happened to find the letter “A” written four times in the photo. Alas, this discovery didn’t turn to anything.
MCU Cosmic is now saying that they have an inside source which suggests they know the title.
According to this source, the title will come from a Marvel Comics event series, Avengers: Annihilation.
This is the photo in question, with some A’s made out of a ladder and camera equipment:
It could also signify Avengers: Assemble, but Annihilation seems to be the favorite of the two possibilities.
Annihilation, which debuted in 2006, was a crossover series that brought many of Marvel’s heroes and villains together. Nova, Thanos, the Silver Surfer, Super-Skrull, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ronan the Accuser were brought together to stop Annihilus and his Annihilation Wave from destroying the universe.
In the past, films from the Marvel Cinematic universe have utilized comic book storylines for titles, including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
Avengers 4 is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Evangeline Lilly, and Josh Brolin.
It’s set to release in theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
