Just like Avengers Infinity War was the movie people were most hyped about before it came out, Avengers 4 is now the upcoming movie people are most hyped about. It is all because of Infinity War that people want to see Avengers 4 even more as the film left us on a big cliffhanger which will only be solved by Avengers 4. The final movie of Phase 3 actually has the capability to gross even past Infinity War which is currently standing on a $2 Billion+ total.
While the movie is still 8 months away, we still haven’t got anything from the marketing department of the film. We got the first image of all the leftover Avengers assembling together but that too was leaked and not officially released. Because Marvel went to Comic-Con last year, we got big character posters and even a description of the trailer showed there, but since they did not have a presence at this year’s Comic-Con, we should not expect for anything to be released until November or even December. Not even the title of the film will be announced until the first trailer of Captain Marvel hits the net which will come out between the timespan of the last week of September to the 2nd week of October.
So expect the title of Avengers 4 to be announced in late October or early November. The Russos are hard at work for finishing this film and according to what they recently told Deadline, they are supposed to stay in the post-production stage until March 2019. Here’s what Anthony Russo said:
“We’ve worked on the edit all summer and we’re excited to finally get these missing pieces in the film and then we expect to be in post through the fall and winter. We hope to be done by March.”
Russo continued to talk about the likes of Black Panther, almost all the Guardians and others falling prey to the big snap of Thanos and ending the movie in the most horrific manner. He said:
“It was so gratifying that in a movie with this scope and scale and that wide of an audience that we were able to end with a gut punch and yet the audience stayed with us and found value and kept coming back. It’s a rare thing to find in commercial filmmaking and we know it had a lot to do with the the capital that’s been built up around these characters for the last ten years of Marvel filmmaking. The audience is so invested in these characters that they’re willing to stick with them even through the hard stuff. It has been our great pleasure as storytellers to take them through that hard stuff and have it be a cathartic and even entertaining experience at times.”
Marvel was not afraid to kill off the big name characters in the film and not even the likes of flagship characters like Spider-Man or even Doctor Strange were spared as they were done and dusted just like anyone else. Spidey’s dying moment was probably the most heart drenching moment of the film. Here’s what Joe Russo added about Spidey’s sorrowful death:
“It was probably when a 10-year old boy at a Q&A was crying as he asked us why we killed Spider-Man,” he said. “The best reaction was probably that 10-year old kid crying and asking us why we killed Spider-Man. From the time we came to Marvel, our goal was to surprise the audience and not give them the same thing but rather to challenge them.”
The Russos came into the picture with Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is still considered to be one of the darkest and most intense films of the MCU, and Infinity War might have even gone past that. They have taken every plot and flipped it totally upside down with the audiences not really knowing what to expect in their movies. Both the Captain America movies were thrilling and then they got to do Avengers: Infinity War and the fourth one which they have thoroughly enjoyed. Joe Russo said:
“That was our view on Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Civil War was also very controversial internally with the powers that be in turning Iron Man into the antagonist and severing the relationship between Cap and Tony Stark. Every Marvel film we’ve created had this controversy, like are we pushing this rabid audience too far? Are we making movies that could perhaps be too emotionally complex for the genre? The audience has shown up wanting more is a testament to the hard work everybody has put in over those last ten years of films.”
Avengers 4 will come out on May 3, 2019, and the first trailer of the film may drop in November or the first week of December.
