For the longest time, I’ve held the opinion that Avengers 4 would eventually be titled Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. The reason? It was a title that made sense because I assumed that Avengers: Infinity War would be him assembling the Infinity Stones and that the next film would have him actually utilizing the gauntlet following the snapping of his fingers killed off a portion of the universe.

Additionally, last year, while promoting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, star Zoe Saldana casually referred to that fourth film as Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. However, in recent weeks, following the release of Avengers: Infinity War, we’ve had several instances of producers and filmmakers flat-out denying that that was the case.

But that’s not to say it could NEVER have been titled that. MCU Cosmic is reporting that Avengers 4 was referred to as Infinity Gauntlet internally at Marvel Studios throughout its production. This would explain Zoe Saldana’s dropping of the title. That being said, it sounds like they may be going in a completely different direction.

Personally, I think that’s a good move from the studio. From the perspective of the layman, Infinity Gauntlet likely sounds way too similar to Infinity War, and may simply lead to confusion, with some casual fans perhaps not even showing up to theaters, thinking it’s just the same film. What do you think? Should the studio have changed the title, and what do you think it will be called when it finally is revealed? Let us know your thoughts down below!
