Avengers 4 title seemingly confirmed by movie's cinematographer

The long-standing quest to discover the mysterious real title of Avengers 4 may finally be over.

According to the latest rumor, the movie is called Avengers: End Game — and while that particular title has been among those rumored for a while, there's been a compelling new development that makes it seem quite likely.

As first reported by the site Omega Underground, the cinematographer for the fourth Avengers movie, Trent Opaloch, seems to have updated his professional website/portfolio with the actual title of the forthcoming sequel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In doing so, he's become the first person on the production to commit to a title for the movie, quite possibly spilling the beans on the secret.

As Omega Underground points out, Opaloch is a high-level member of the production, and there's every reason to believe that he would be in a position to know the movie's actual title. He's worked with Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers on a number of movies at this point, including the two most recent Captain America movies, and both halves now of the Avengers vs. Thanos story.

Tellingly, Opaloch's website has since reverted the title listed on his résumé to "Avengers 4". 

Titles floated for the untitled superhero sequel have included Avengers: ForeverAvengers: Fallen HeroesAvengers: Infinity Gauntlet and Avengers: Legacy, among many, many others. Few were rooted in any kind of fact; all of them were just good guesses. 

Previously, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige indicated that fans wouldn't see hide nor hair of the actual Avengers 4 title until the tail end of 2018, so this is all quite cool if true. Feige also has emphasized that the title was not expected to live up to unrealistic expectations, which — yeah. That's about right. Whatever.

As compelling as this development is, it's worth noting that there's still plenty of time for the producers to change the name purely for the sake of spite. It's not like they've sunk anything into marketing the real title yet, after all. 

The fourth Avengers movie, whatever it's called, will be out in theaters on May 3, 2019. But before you get a chance to see Thanos' three-hour victory lap (presumably), you've still got to catch Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6 and Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019.
