Avengers: Infinity War brought about the destruction of the beloved superhero team.
With Thanos looming large and half the Avengers turned to dust, anticipation for Avengers: Endgame has reached fever pitch. Will Iron Man, Captain America and the remaining crew be able to put a stop to the Mad Titan? Can they bring back Spider-Man, Black Panther and Doctor Strange?
Disney and Marvel have kept incredibly silent about the upcoming sequel, but small details have emerged thanks to tie-in toys, chatty actors and the occasional leak. Here’s everything we know about the fourth Avengers movie.
Avengers: Endgame reaches cinemas on 26 April 2019, just over a year after Infinity Warwas released and under two months after the Brie Larson-starring Captain Marvel debuts on the 8 March.
The first official trailer for Avengers: End Game was released last year and featuring Iron Man stranded in space, Captain America searching for a way to defeat Thanos, and Ant-Man hoping to get into the Avengers facility. Watch the trailer at the top of this article, and click through our breakdown of it below.
During the Super Bowl, a second trailer – only 30 seconds long – was released, featuring a very empty world and some very sad Avengers. Some fans also believe that some members of the superhero group have been removed from the trailer, as to avoid spoilers.
For quite some time, no-one knew what the fourth Avengers movie would be called. First, the Russo Brothers – who directed Infinity War and return for the sequel – confirmed that the movie would not be given the subtitle Infinity Gauntlet.
They initially claimed that the title was not said during Infinity War, which ruled out the title Endgame for some time as the phrase was used during Infinity War. As we now know, the brothers were hiding the real title all along.
Speaking during a live-streamed Q&A, Joe Russo revealed: “The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours. We’ll see if that holds.”
Asked later about the length of the film, the Russo brothers said that the run-time was still around the three-hour mark, with reports later claiming Marvel were considering having an interval in the film.
Considering Avengers: Infinity War already stands as the longest MCU film at two hours, forty minutes – an extra twenty minutes doesn’t seem entirely unreasonable.
Thanks to License Global magazine – the same publication that offered the world first synopsis for Infinity War – we have a short, very non-spoilery summary of what to expect.
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth instalment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
The only real pointer there is the fact “sacrifices will be made” which hints that a couple of big character deaths could be around the corner. Which brings us nicely to our next point…
Who will die?
Chris Evans has confirmed that he’s hanging up the shield after the next Avengers, strongly implying that Captain America may die. And while the actor has said that his character’s death is not a sure-fire thing, fans are expecting the honourable Captain to perish at some stage.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories!

Another possibility is Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr has been demanding increasing pay for each Avengers outing, with some estimates putting his salary for Infinity War and Endgame at around $200 million. Can the studio afford to keep paying the actor such massive amounts? Considering Infinity War grossed upwards of £2 billion, they certainly can – but do they want to? Nonetheless, fans are still expecting Iron Man to kick the iron bucket at some stage in the near future.
Of course, with Thanos still around, there’s a chance any of the beloved characters who survived the snap – Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man, Rocket, and Hawkeye – could perish. The only survivor with a future solo movie currently in development is Black Widow, but her movie will likely be a prequel to her Avengers days.
