New Avengers: Endgame Poster for Scarlet Witch. Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
Here’s the new trailer for the continuation to the next Avengers movie
Before we continue, know that this story will feature spoilers for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, including Avengers: Infinity War.
Here’s what we know, true believers:
When Is Avengers 4 coming out?
Back in October of 2014, before we knew how shockingly Avengers: Infinity War would end, Marvel announced that “Avengers: Infinity War Part II” would release on May 3, 2019. Since then, Marvel’s announced that the film would not bear the “Infinity War Part II” title, but that release date still stands as of this writing.
When do we get an Avengers 4 trailer?
Since next May feels like years away, with the mega-cliffhanger that Infinity War gave us, we’re all itching for a trailer for this movie. And sure, Marvel doesn’t need to publish a trailer in order to get Avengers 4 to break more box office records, but one is definitely coming.
According to reporter Erick Weber, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige said the Avengers 4 trailer will arrive “before the end of the year.”
What will Avengers 4 be called?
There’s about as much speculation about the subtitle of the fourth Avengers film as there is for what will happen in said film. While early speculation suggested the title would be Infinity Gauntlet, Marvel exec Kevin Feige threw cold water on that name.
One clue as to the title comes from the Russo brothers, who directed Infinity War. In a long-since deleted tweet, that Inverse reported on, a Twitter user named @occmarvel said “The fact that the Russo brothers won’t give us the Avengers 4 title because it spoils Infinity War scares the shit outta me,” which pushed the Russos to respond from their own Twitter account with two ominous words: “It should.” One fan theory posits that the film title is Avengers: Anarchy, based on a close study of a photo shared by the Russos on Twitter.
That pushes fans to think the new film’s title will be very doom and gloom, such as Avengers: Annihilation. Another possibly sad title thrown around, is The New Avengers, which would suggest that the cast from the first films are getting killed off, and replaced.
Who’s in the Avengers 4 cast?
Before we get to the cut and dry list of the Avengers 4 cast, as credited on IMDb, let’s talk basics. The core Avengers (2012) film cast — Robert Downey, Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) — are all coming back.

One of the biggest movies of the year has given birth to one of the biggest trading card products of the year.
Upper Deck’s 2018 Avengers: Infinity War went live on October 3rd, creating a huge buzz with its autograph signers. While many of the Upper Deck MCU products have been hit-or-miss in terms of autographs, Infinity War is an arc reactor full of awesome.
There are four different autograph sets to chase: Infinite Impressions Autographs, Infinite Impressions Inscriptions, Infinite Impressions Dual Autographs, and Film Cel Autographs.
The lineup is just what you would expect for such a star-studded product:
Josh Brolin (redemption only)
Chris Hemsworth (redemption only – exclusive to Film Cel Autographs)
The trio of Brolin, Holland, and Olsen are the prominent first-time signers while Evans, Hemsworth, Gillian, Bautista, and Klementieff are the returning veterans. Wong and Vaughan-Lawlor round out the rest and they, too, are first-time signers.
Through Friday, October 12, there were 71 confirmed sales on eBay. Elizabeth Olsen leads the way with 22 autographs sold. Her regular autographs are selling in the $300-$750 range, while her inscriptions are going for a bit higher at $500-$1,100. Her lone Film Cel autograph sold for $600.
Even though Avengers 4 — arguably the biggest movie Marvel Studios has produced to date — is still seven months away, fan anticipation is at an all-time high. As guests at this weekend’s ACE Comic Con in Chicago, Avengers: Infinity War stars Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston were both on hand to answer fan questions.
In a panel, which was apparently moderated by Hiddleston himself, things got bleak rather fast with the pair starting conversation off by discussing the sacrifices their characters made in Infinity War.
“The thing you have to do at the end of Infinity War is a kind of sacrifice and arguably Loki makes a similar one,” Hiddleston told his co-star.
If you recall, of course, Hiddleston was referring to Olsen’s Scarlet Witch killing Paul Bettany’s Vision in an attempt to keep the Mind Stone out of the hands of Thanos.
Although she initially was able to destroy the Mind Stone — which, in turn, killed Vision — Thanos (Josh Brolin) quickly used the Time Stone to reverse her actions and take the Mind Stone, allowing him to fully assemble his Infinity Gauntlet.
According to Olsen, things aren’t going to get better for Wanda Maximoff in Avengers 4. “It’s only going to get worse,” Olsen said while looking out at the crowd.
That Infinity War was kept a secret from the movie’s cast until the day they filmed it, Olsen had previously revealed.
“I found out from the Russos exactly what was going to happen, and it wasn’t until we shot it on that day we learned what the ending was,” said Olsen. “They took us into a van – all of us – we were in a van with air conditioning because it was very hot, and they told us how the movie was going to end, and no one knew. And they were like ‘Now we’re shooting it, Go!’ and we were like ‘How are we supposed to interpret that?’”
Avengers 4 — which has yet to receive an official name — recently wrapped reshoots, an event marked by a mysterious image posted to social media on behalf of Joe and Anthony Russo.
Avengers 4 opens May 3, 2019.
Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen discussed their MCU characters plus small teasers for Avengers 4 this weekend at ACE Comic Con in Chicago. The God of Mischief and Scarlet Witch might not have shared any screentime together in the MCU, but that didn’t stop Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen from having a little fireside (in this cas, panel side) chat about their two characters at ACE Comic Con in Chicago over the weekend.
Of course, fans were eager to learn what the future had in store for the two characters. After all, they both technically “died” in Infinity War. Loki being outright killed by Thanos, and Scarlet Witch being blown away by Thanos’ snap.
So, is Loki really dead? Hiddleston recalled a fan theory from someone that made it sound very plausible that Loki might actually still be alive. “I was at a park in London a few days ago and some guys came to say ‘Hi’ and they asked me the same question… They said: ‘Hey, all the other times Loki’s died, he stabs with his right hand. Now he’s stabbing with his right hand.’”
“That’s an incredible attention to detail,” Hiddleston admitted. But ultimately, like all who keep mum about Marvel’s secrets, he could only conclude, “Your guess is as good as mine.”
It’s no secret that Tom Holland’s time in the MCU is far from over. Not only is he still a relatively new arrival, but fans already know he’s filming his own new movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. So it’s no real shock to know that he’s been spotted allegedly en route to Atlanta to join his Marvel co-stars doing reshoots and pick-ups for Avengers 4. A Twitter user with the handle @goldenclosetboy shared a snap to social media over the weekend that seems to show the British actor on the plane.
It remains to be seen how Holland’s Peter Parker will rejoin the action, but he won’t be alone. Actors who portray several other ‘dead’ heroes have been seen attending filming, including Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis). Chris Evans, meanwhile, appears to have confirmed that Captain America is bowing out at the end of the next film. He tweeted: “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! Eternally grateful.” How Evans will make his exit remains to be seen, but fans’ most immediate concern is what the actual title of the movie will be. Last week it emerged that the name of Avengers 4 was Avengers: Annihilation, although this has not been officially confirmed by Marvel.
Mark Ruffalo appeared to poke fun at the speculation over the weekend, and it’s unknown now when the moniker will be unveiled properly. The blockbuster will draw a line under the past 22 films’ worth of storytelling, which began with Iron Man back in 2008. Before it hits cinemas, MCU fans will get to meet Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers – aka Captain Marvel – in her solo movie next March.
Avengers 4 is out on April 26, 2019.
Over the last few Marvel Studios films, Scarlet Witch has become a popular hero and is one of the most powerful characters in the Avengers. But while everyone else goes by their code name from time to time, no one has yet to refer to her by her superhero callsign.
Elizabeth Olsen’s character is introduced as Wanda Maximoff alongside her twin brother Pietro in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Though the hero not referred to as Quicksilver ends up biting the dust in that film, Wanda goes on to appear in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, becoming a pivotal part in both films.
And yet, no one ever refers to her as Scarlet Witch throughout all three films. Usually, everyone just calls her Wanda. This is surprising, considering a lot of fans refer to the character by that name, as she’s known to be called in her comic book appearances.
Scarlet Witch, er, Wanda Maximoff is not the only character to not have a superhero name. Sam Wilson, who is known as the Falcon in the comic books, always goes by his first name, despite having a drone that he calls Redwing — straight out of the comic books.
But most everyone else has a callsign that they go by, especially if they have their own solo movie. Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Vision, STAR-LORD! Perhaps it’s time for someone to make a fan petition to get Marvel to give Scarlet Witch the respect she deserves.
All jokes aside, Marvel is likely about to get in on the branding game for Wanda Maximoff very soon. It was recently revealed that Marvel Studios is working on limited series based on characters who won’t get their own movies, including Loki and, you guessed it, Scarlet Witch.
In Avengers: Infinity War, audiences saw Scarlet Witch disintegrate at the hands of Thanos and his deadly snap. Fans are taking to the internet to search whether or not Elizabeth Olsen will reprise the role in Avengers 4, with the actress refusing to address either way if she will appear in the film. You can see her reaction to the inquiry in the video above around the 2:04-mark.
A Doctor Strange 2 fan poster features a team-up between the Sorcerer Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). One of the more recent Marvel sequels to be confirmed, 2016 Doctor Strange helmer, Scott Derrickson, is poised to return to direct the sequel. Not much is known about what will go down in the film but considering that Strange’s origin movie teased Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) going rogue after learning about the Ancient One’s wrongdoings, fans might see this angle tackled.
Right now, both Strange and Wanda are dead after being snuffed out of existence due to Thanos’ deadly snap in Avengers: Infinity War. The two were among the standout characters of the film, fighting hard to prevent the Mad Titan from achieving his goal of wiping out half of life in the universe. But with Avengers 4 expected to resurrect some, if not all of the vaporized heroes, the two are expected to be brought back to life one way or another. Perhaps after resolving the crisis at hand, the pair can team-up in a future film like what this brand new fan art is suggesting.
Courtesy of Redditor realityavengers is a brand new fan poster for Doctor Strange 2. On top of implying that both Wong (Benedict Wong) and Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) are set to join Cumberbatch in the sequel, the illustration also interestingly showcases what it would look like if Wanda were to appear in the film.
