What Will the Avengers 4 Title Be? The Rotten Tomatoes Audience Has Some Ideas.

Marvel isn't telling us anything, but that isn't getting in the way of some serious – and less serious – speculation.

We’re about to talk about Avengers 4, which means we’re about to talk about Infinity War, which means… SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT.

Seriously, this is quite a short piece, but pretty much every word of it is a spoiler, so if you haven’t seen the big, superhero–stuffed monster currently tearing your local multiplex apart, don’t read on. (Or, if you’re the kind of freaky filmgoer who loves spoilers, indulge in our spoiler-filled Easter Egg video and get really, really spoilery).

OK, now that’s out of the way, let us wipe our still-weepy eyes – do not even mention Tom Holland around us, we are still too wounded — and speculate wildly about the future of the franchise. Specifically, what the future of the Avengers franchise might be called.

Kevin Feige and the rest of the crew at Marvel Studios have given precious few clues as to what the next Avengers movie, due in theaters next May, will be called. Many moons ago (OK, July 2016), it was known publicly as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, but then it became known as Untitled Avengers 4, apparently because it was not as direct a sequel as first expected. Also, Feige has said that the title is actually a spoiler. (So maybe something along the lines of Avengers: We’re Turning Back Time to Save the Dust Peeps?)

With little to officially go on, but so very much to muse upon following the events of Infinity War, we put it to our audiences on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to speculate and suggest what the official title will be when it is announced in… well, whenever it is announced. Here is what they came up with (as well as a friendly letter grade for each based on how clever, accurate, or ingenious the suggestions are, because we’re feeling judge-y).

Say it with us now, Thanos will return in…

Avengers: Disassembled

C+. We prefer Avengers: Dissolved if we’re going the literal route.

Avengers: Reborn / Avengers: Resurrection 

B+. A real possibility given what Feige has said about the title being a spoiler.

Avengers: Endgame

B. A fitting sense of foreboding, and raises so many titillating questions: Endgame for whom? Thanos? The Avengers? Also:  “Game”. Could this be what Strange has been playing all along…

Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet 

D. I think we’ve had enough gauntlet action for a few millennia, thanks very much.

Avengers: Wrath of Thanos

B. Feige has told Rotten Tomatoes he’s a Star Trek obsessive, and this would be a nice play for the all-time villain list. But really, Thanos looked pretty happy with his sunset — The Contentment of Thanos would be more likely. And with half the universe gone, what more wrath could be possibly have left to… wreath (that’s the verb, right? Shhh, we’re going with it.)

Avengers: Time Scape

A. We have a few working theories on what’s going to go down in Avengers 4, and this title would work nicely with some of them.

All Out Infinity War

B+. Our friends at @TheWalkingDead, who share Marvel’s taste for killing their darlings, suggested this via Twitter. Nice play on their current season’s own tagline!

Avengers: When is Gamora?

A+. Well played, sir, or ma’am.

Avengers: Why is Gamora?

A++. And then they went one better…

Avengers: The Revenge of Squidward

B. We had a lot of time with Ebony Maw, member of the Black Order, Child of Thanos, lover of proclamations, current space popsicle. The idea of seeing him thaw and return to throw more random things at the remaining Avengers has us psyched.

Avengers: Tokyo Drift

C-. This made us laugh just slightly harder than another suggestion in the same vein, 2 Fast 2 Infinity, but not changing it to Titan Drift was a missed opportunity.

Avengers: The Dust Buster Years

F-. Way, way too soon.
