Two months on from the release of “Avengers: Infinity War” in cinemas, the official website of cinematographer Trent Opaloch may have let slip the still secret title of the fourth “Avengers” film at Marvel Studios. The key crewman worked on the upcoming fourth film and his CV listed it as “Avengers: End Game” before he subsequently took down the entry.
The potential slip comes as Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige spoke about the studio upping their release strategy to three films a year, saying it allows for not just in demand sequels but also smaller films and more character introductions. He tells Cinema Blend:
“It’s one of the reasons we’ve expanded to three films a year, is so that we could do the sequels to films that people have responded to – because we love to make continuing stories with characters people have responded to – but also keep doing the stuff that nobody’s ever heard of, and people go, ‘Why are you doing that?’ That’s fun.
And that’s what Phase One was built on, Phase Two was built on, Phase Three was built on, is having that… Whenever we announce the next year, two years, three years, five years, whatever we’re going to announce, there will be plenty of those that, maybe people in the know like yourself will know what they are, but the world at large will go, ‘What is it? Why are they doing that?’
That’s exciting, for sure. It makes sense: a higher volume of films allows Marvel to introduce more variation in its regular releases, dishing out movies like Black Panther and movies like Infinity War without major downtime between either type. It’s smart; it’s also a breakneck pace. We’ll see how long Marvel Studios manages it.
The comments come as “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is set to open this week ahead of a long eight month gap until “Captain Marvel” launches in March.
