MCU News: Avengers 4 May Have a Title, Leaked Concept Art & More

Stay on target

We weren’t supposed to know the title of the next Avengers movie for a while. Marvel was said to be planning the title reveal for after the first trailer for Captain Marvel. But even a company as powerful and notoriously secretive as Marvel can’t keep everything quiet. The cast and crew of these movies may be sworn to secrecy, not even receiving full scripts most of the time, but all it takes is one slip-up for a secret to be spilled. That may have happened over the weekend thanks to a cinematographer brushing up his resume after completing a handful of Marvel titles.

Trent Opaloch updated the resume page on his website with what looks an awful lot like the title for Avengers 4. He immediately changed it back to the more general title, which sure makes it seem like he accidentally leaked something he shouldn’t have. Thanks to Omega Underground, we have a screenshot of what it looked like before the edit.

So that’s it. Until Marvel says otherwise, the most probable title for the next Avengers movie is Avengers: End Game. It’s not a terrible title, though not a wholly original one, either. I don’t know how I feel about next year’s big Avengers movie sharing the same subtitle as the fourth Highlander. It makes sense as a title, though. For many of the Avengers, this will be their last movie. Taking that into consideration, it’s not a terrible name. I wish it was a little less generic, though. Maybe it could be something from Marvel’s past that still gets across the same message. Something like… Avengers: ‘Nuff Said. Especially if they had the guts to make it a silent film. Look, everyone’s going to see this thing no matter what? Why not make it a weird experimental art piece? Yeah, probably not going to happen. There’s reason to believe this title may be incorrect, despite the hasty deletion, though. Comic Book points out an older interview with co-director Joe Russo, where he said the title would not be based on a line of dialog from Infinity War. The words “End Game” were spoken at a pretty pivotal point in the film, so it’s unlikely Marvel just forgot it was in there. It’s possible “End Game” was just a working title that Marvel always planned to change. Or maybe the cast and crew were all handed scripts with fake titles on them. Marvel’s done weirder things to ensure secrecy. We’ll find out for sure when the studio officially reveals the title… sometime after the Captain Marvel trailer. Whenever that is.

Avengers 4 is Marvel’s most anticipated movie of the next year, so it’s in extra danger when it comes to leaks. And a potential title isn’t the only thing that may have made it out this week. Remember this purported leaked art that we weren’t quite sure was legit?

Well some more art leaked from a more credible source, and that’s looking a lot more real now. The AJ Designs Twitter account posted what it claims is leaked Avengers 4/End Game concept art. It all matches up with what we see in the above image. First, there’s Captain America.

It looks like he’s due for a new costume in the upcoming sequel, right before Chris Evans’ likely exit from the series. Too bad too, because that’s a nice looking costume. It takes the scales and design of Cap’s classic costume from the comics, and gives it a more modern look that fits this series of movies. Also, sad to say, he’s shaved his beard. I think that means he can’t live in Brooklyn anymore.

Oh, and there’s a closer look at The Hulk is his new suit. The fact that he was able to get that on without tearing it could actually confirm a major fan theory. Not only will Bruce Banner be able to coax Hulk out to fight Thanos in the upcoming film, he may have found a way to stay in control even when he Hulks out. It happened in the comics, and after his last two movies, it’s a logical place for the character to go. The biggest possible spoiler comes from this image, though.

Click through those images and look at that Thanos. As Nerdist points out, not only is he holding some kind of dual-bladed anime weapon, he’s also wearing an intact Infinity Gauntlet. Think back to that traumatizing final scene of Avengers: Infinity War. When Thanos snapped his fingers and destroyed nearly everyone you’ve ever loved, the gauntlet, and the stones, broke. This concept art implies that somehow, that will be undone. There’s a prominent fan theory that the Avengers 4/End Game will heavily feature time travel. Especially because Ant-Man already introduced the Quantum Realm to the MCU. Since Janet Van Dyne is brought back from the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and we know she’s in the next Avengers movie, she could facilitate the Avengers going back in time to prevent Thanos from getting the Infinity Stones. At least until they get Doctor Strange and his Time Stone back.

It’s all just theory and speculation right now, of course. But some leaked set photos sure do look like the team is going back to the Battle of New York from the first Avengers. If this is the case, I’m excited. If you’ve read my reviews of Legends of Tomorrow, you know the only thing I like more than superheroes is time traveling superheroes. I didn’t think it was possible, but I may be even more excited about this movie now.

Before we get to the next Avengers though, Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out this weekend. We’ll finally get to see Hope van Dyne as The Wasp in a movie. We could have gotten that much earlier, though. Remember, at the end of the first Ant-Man, Hank Pym offers Hope her mother’s old suit. But in the years since, we’ve seen Ant-Man show up in another movie. Now, we learned that the original plan was to have The Wasp show up too… but director Peyton Reed said no.

In an interview with Polygon, Reed said he wanted to introduce Hope’s version of The Wasp after establishing Scott Lang as Ant-Man. The whole story about Janet and the Quantum Realm wasn’t even in his original version of the script. It was added by Paul Rudd and Adam McKay in a rewrite. Ultimately, it was good for the movie and the franchise as a whole. And as Reed learned, when you make a Marvel movie, some things are taken out of your hands. Like the reveal of Ant-Man’s Giant Man powers. Reed wanted that to debut in the Ant-Man sequel, but was told Joe and Anthony Russo wanted it to happen in Captain America: Civil War.

“I was pissed,” he told Polygon. “But once I got past that, he’s like, well, ‘It could have been worse.’ I was like, ‘How could it be worse?’ They were going to get the Wasp reveal, too, at one point.”

Yeah, that would have been worse. As cool as it would be to see both Ant-Man and The Wasp join the superhero brawl, her introduction deserves its own movie. And the Giant power was a cool surprise in Civil War. Hope’s debut wouldn’t have had the weight it deserves if it happened alongside that and the introduction of Spider-Man to the MCU. The Russos realized this and put Wasp on hold for Reed’s film, allowing it to be a sequel to both Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War.

“The whole idea of Civil War looms large in our movie. It’s kind of a sequel to Civil War … so luckily [the Wasp appearance] didn’t happen,” he said. We’ll learn exactly what that means when Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters Friday.

Finally, though Captain America might be getting a new costume in the next Avengers movie, it wouldn’t be the first time Marvel Studios toyed around with the idea. Artist Ryan Meinerding shared some actual concept art he drew for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which features Cap in some brand new S.H.I.E.L.D.-branded duds.

This is an unused Cap design from Captain America: Winter Soldier! It was going to be an update to the Avengers costume but it never got passed the concept phase. #captainamerica #marvelstudios #marvelcinematicuniverse #mcu #conceptart #conceptdesign #digitalpainting #ryanmeinerding

As he says, it never got past the art phase, meaning that no matter how hard you look, you won’t find any photos of Chris Evans in this highly flattering super suit. Honestly, I like the look of this thing a lot. As Cap is working for S.H.I.E.L.D. at the start of the movie, it’d make sense for them to build him a new uniform. One that clearly signifies who he works for. (Though something tells me the MCU version of Captain America might have some issues with that.) It’s a good looking suit, though. It modernizes the classic Captain America look, while keeping the vintage style of the helmet/mask, signifying his World War II roots. That S.H.I.E.L.D. insignia would get awkward real quick once the organization falls to Hydra, though. He’d need another costume change after only half a movie.

We’ll see if Cap actually gets a new costume this time, along with the rest of the team, when Avengers: End Game (or maybe not) hits theaters May 3, 2019.
