2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” was a massive hit. And there’s no doubt that its sequel, which will be released by April next year, will be even bigger and better than any of the 21 Marvel movies that came before it. The untitled Avengers sequel – or most people refer to as Avengers 4 – will bring about the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s third phase of its superhero franchise. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stressed the importance of the upcoming movie by saying it “will be a major moment in the canonical universe” and it will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films before: a finale.”
We can’t wait to find out what happens to our favorite Marvel heroes after the events of Infinity War. So here’s some things we learned about the new movie that will give us clues about the fate of the Avengers and other things we might expect to see.
- The title of the Avengers sequel is not yet announced. Despite rumors that actor Mark Ruffalo “accidentally” revealed the title to a taping on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, no official announcement were officially made yet. Some people believe Ruffalo’s slip up, which was bleeped on the show, was just a joke.

- Tessa Thompson, who played Valkyrie in “Thor: Ragnarok” was seen on the set to Avengers 4 with Chris Hemsworth. This could mean that Valkyrie will return. Jeremy Renner has also teased the return of Hawkeye, which also means that he too was spared by Thanos.
- Chris Evans posted a tweet saying goodbye to his cast-mates and implying that he’s done with playing Captain America. If this is true, then something important might happen to the Cap in Avengers 4.
- Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has consistently talked about the importance of Captain Marvel in the new film. As we saw in Infinity War, Captain Marvel, to be played by Brie Larson, was the first superhero Nick Fury called during Thanos’ destruction of the universe. A month before Avengers 4 comes out, “Captain Marvel” will be released providing us some background about her role in the MCU.
- Karen Gillan who played Nebula, teased a major showdown between her character and Thanos. This might reference what went down in the comic book The Infinity Gauntlet, where Nebula stole the gauntlet from Thanos.
- There might be some time travel in Avengers 4. A series of photos of the cast wearing the 2012 Avengers costumes and in the Battle of New York set were leaked online. Captain America and Thor are wearing their original uniforms, but we also see Tony Stark in a totally different getup to how he originally appeared, and Ant-Man is also there – giving the impression the duo somehow travelled back in time to the battle.
- Principal photography of the movie occurred between August and July. The movie was shot in Pinewood Atlanta Studios the state of Georgia, U.S.A. Some scenes were also shot in the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland.
