Kevin Feige explains why title of Endgame was kept under wraps for long time (Photo: Twitter)
After Avengers: Infinity War, there was a heavy cloud of interest about the title of Avengers 4. The title of Avengers 4 was rather kept under wraps long after Infinity War hit theaters, and it wasn’t until the film’s first teaser that we learned its true name Avengers: Endgame. Before all this came ‘into’ proportion, a cinematographer, who worked on "Infinity War", had inadvertently leaked the official title of the film's 2019 follow-up and many saw it as a ‘leak’. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, however, has more things to say, Feige has said that the hoopla surrounding the spoiler tease of the title of Avengers: Endgame was "blown out of proportion" and the ‘leak’ was actually a spoiler.
Feige, however, justified the studio's decision to keep the name under wraps.
"Well, I think I'd said that it all had gotten blown out of proportion to some extent. But it was a spoiler, because if you knew before 'Infinity War' came out that the next movie was called 'Endgame', then you know that there wasn't an ending to 'Infinity War'," he told Collider.com.
The Marvel honcho, however, said that the studio had somewhat hinted at a future film title in "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
"But that had been the title of the movie from the moment we conceived of doing the two films. In large part, because... it's seeded right there. I mean, it's seeded in 'Ultron'," Feige added.
Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark/ Iron Man had uttered the words "that's the endgame" when he was confronted by other Avengers for creating Ultron.
Endgame will be released in the UK and US on April 26, 2019.
