Avengers Endgame or Assemble? Inside wild fan theories sparked by Russo brothers' cryptic photo
For the longest time, 'Avengers Endgame' has been touted as the possible title and now a second theory says it could also be 'Avengers Assemble'.
It's been a good year for Marvel fans. With blockbusters like 'Black Panther', 'Avenger: Infinity War', and 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' setting a pretty good record at the box-office, all eyes are now on the upcoming spate of movies, which not only will define the fate of Earth's mightiest heroes but also will mark the end of Phase III in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Beginning of the next year, though, superhero movie lovers would be gearing up for two back-to-back arrivals. First up is the much-anticipated Brie Larson debut as Captain Marvel, a movie tasked with great duties bridging the gap between the events of 'Infinity War' and 'Avengers 4', and possibly resurrecting the better half of the population who perished under Thanos' snap. Following the Carol Danvers outing, MCU fans should prepare for their biggest ensemble movie ever - the Infinity War sequel.
Also supposed to be the fourth in the series, Avengers 4 has been generating headlines ever since 'Infinity War' hit the theaters back in April. After all, the fourth installment in the saga is expected to seal the fate of almost every major Marvel hero - from Spider-Man to Doctor Strange - who, to the shock of many, vanished into thin air at the end of the last Avengers film. Now, there's a better half of the year left before the yet-untitled Avengers movie makes its theatrical debut in May 2019. Until then, fans appear to be engaging themselves with something that they have aced over the years - speculation.
Most recently, Avengers director duo, the Russo Brothers shared an on-set photo, sending the massive fandom of the superhero franchise into a meltdown. As if the scarcity of information wasn't making us tense already!
"Look hard...," they shared alongside a back and white picture from the sets filled with a gazillion props - just the right kind of fodder to send imagination soaring. Unsurprisingly, fans have devotedly broken down every piece of the clue to figure out what secret message might be hiding in the photo - and popular opinion is, it is the film's title.
"There's an object on the left that appears at the Avengers facility in Infinity War. The chapter on the Blu-ray where that scene takes place is called... Avengers Assemble," one eagle-eyed fan wrote, pointing out a cylindrical item in the corner and giving birth to the first fan theory surrounding a prospective title, 'Avengers Assemble'. Not a lousy name, but there seems to be another popular option as well.
For the longest time, 'Avengers Endgame' has been touted as the possible title and it doesn't sound half bad either. "GUYS WHAT IF THEY ARE CONFIRMING THE TITLE IS AVENGERS ENDGAME???!!!!" shared a second user, fueling the speculation further.
"I see an A and an E, which seems to tell me that Avengers Eternity might be the title for A4 ... After all, the Russo Brothers did say that the closest title to A4 they got was "Avengers Forever"," shared another user.

Marvel is setting up the death of Captain America, Ironman, and Thor to replace them with woman counterparts for phase 2 of their movies and story.
