Avengers: Infinity War ending shocked Marvel fans would be the understatement of the year. It literally felt like a massive GOT level cliff-hanger (Red Wedding) which had our jaws on the floor, as no one saw it coming. There was stunned silence as Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of the entire universe including half of our beloved superheroes.
In the post-credits, we saw Mariah Hill and Nick Fury witnessing the collapse of entire city post snap, eventually, both Hill and Fury turned to ash but not before sending a distress signal to Captain Marvel. So, the most powerful female superhero is now aware of the situation. Plus, X-Men are now on Disney’s board as it acquired Fox studios. So they can also come in handy in Avengers 4.

Bigoso animations has come out with a fan-made trailer for ‘Avengers 4’ that features the epic clash between Avengers assemble and Thanos. In the final seconds of the trailer, Mad Titan is completely surrounded by the likes of X-Men, Captain Marvel, The Defenders, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four etc. and there is no way he can overcome their collective force.
Avengers 4 will pick up the pieces of ‘Infinity War’ but it won’t be a direct sequel.

“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
