Avengers: Infinity War is around the corner and hype is at an all time high! However, most fans still have their eye on the yet to be named Avengers 4, which will close the book on a decade of storytelling from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The decision to keep the title secret was so that Infinity War would not be spoiled, a decision Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige thinks has somewhat backfired.
Speaking to IGN, Feige said:
“I’ve said before, it’s gotten entirely out of hand. And now will have no chance to living up to any expectations of what it’s gonna be. And it sort of backfired, if I’m honest with you, because the notion was to not talk about it so the focus was to be on [Infinity War].”
While Infinity War and Avengers 4 are being billed as two distinct films, Feige explained that they will be connected to each other more than past Marvel movies:
“They’re absolutely directly connected, as many of our movies are but more so than many of our other movies. People will want to know what happens next immediately at the end of it.”

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
