Avengers 4 finally has a name — and for excited fans anticipating the end of Marvel’s current Cinematic Universe, a new release date.
Avengers: Endgame is the official title for the final Avengers film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 22-film collection. It will be released on April 26, 2019 instead of the previously announced May 3, 2019 release date.
Disney’s decision to bump the film’s release date up isn’t too surprising considering the company used a similar tactic for Avengers: Infinity War earlier this year. This allows Avengers: Endgame’s release in both the UK and the United States to coincide with one another, making it an international event.
Avengers: Endgame was first rumored as the official title earlier this year. “End Game” is an extremely popular title used in comics, making it a nice throwback for fans of various Marvel comic book series. It’s still a pretty generic title, meaning hungry fans looking for something to dig into may be left disappointed. Endgame could also refer to this final stand between the villainous Thanos and the remaining superheroes looking to save the universe from total destruction.
Update: The story has been update to note the official release date.
