Did Kevin Feige Confirm Our AVENGERS 4 theory?

Next year, Marvel is throwing down the Infinity Gauntlet with its biggest movie to date. Avengers: Infinity War has all of the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and even Doctor Strange, but considering there’s a fourth Avengers movie set for 2019, the real question is what’s coming next? Until last year, the fourth film would have been known as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. Marvel has been cagey about the new title ever since, and today’s Nerdist News may have the reason why.

Join host, and the Living Tribunal’s top paralegal, Jessica Chobot, as she looks at Kevin Feige’s recent comments about Avengers 4. During a recent chat with Cinemablend, Feige acknowledged Marvel is withholding the sequel’s name because it’s a spoiler for the ending of Infinity War. Assuming that surprise isn’t simply an Infinity Crusade, we’re thinking this means the potential deaths of several Avengers in the next film. That would naturally pave the way for a New Avengers movie, which has been our primary theory for several months now.

But who could possibly fill the spots left behind by Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk? The Captain America movies have already laid the groundwork for either Falcon or Bucky to pick up the Shield if Steve Rogers goes down. Spider-Man seems like a pretty safe bet, considering that Marvel and Sony are sharing him for at least three films beyond Spider-Man: Homecoming. We suspect Black Widow will be sticking around, while Vision and the Scarlet Witch also seem likely to return. Whether they’ll still be going up against Thanos in the fourth film remains to be seen.

That said, comic book movies are a lot like comic books: dead rarely means dead. Even if a beloved Marvel hero or three bite the big one at Thanos’ hands, there could always be a potential resurrection down the line. Possibly even with new actors or actresses taking over the iconic roles, if any of the current MCU performers want to step away. The only thing that is certain is that Marvel’s got long term plans for its cinematic universe that go far beyond the end of Phase 3. And we’re still excited to see what they have in store for us!
