Avengers 4 – as it is currently known – is one of the most hotly-anticipated movies of 2019. That’s thanks to the fact that Infinity War – its hugely successful predecessor – possesses one of the most devastating cliff-hangers in comic book movie history. While you’ve probably had plenty of time to watch the movie and to indulge in the memes by now, we still won’t spoil you – but the buzz around Avengers 4 has been so colossal that the directors, the Russo brothers, won’t even reveal the full name of the movie until nearer the release date. This is, it’s thought, as a result of the title giving away too much about Infinity War. In any case, cryptic messages, social media posts and more abound – but it seems that a potential teaser trailer for the movie may have found its way onto Reddit far ahead of its planned release.
While it’s unclear whether or not the trailer in question is legitimate or not at the time of writing, do not read any further if you wish to be kept spoiler-free!
The trailer in question appears to show an abandoned infinity gauntlet and seems to give away the real title of the movie – Avengers: Annihilation. This adds up, thus far – as it’s a title that has been circulating on the rumor mill for quite some time. However, that being said, it is one of many names that have been circulating since Avengers 4 fever first began.
The trailer appears shrouded in intense mystery, though it seems to have courted opinions from either side of the coin. Many are hopeful that the teaser is legitimate – and that we finally have the title we’ve been holding out for – while others claim that it may well be a sophisticated piece of fan fiction. For one, the copyright date found in the trailer suggests ‘2017’ – which could be the lynchpin that’s holding its supposed legitimacy together.

There have been few movies to have generated such buzz in recent years – certainly few other comic book movies, in any case – but regardless of apparent leaks, it appears we will still have to all wait our turns with regard to what’s going on in the Marvel universe. Before Avengers 4 lands, we have Captain Marvel to look forward to – meaning that there will be a fair bit more lore for us to muddle through before we find out what happened after the events of Infinity War.
