Reported in a Friday news dump, Deadline revealed that Marvel has offically christened Avengers 3 as Avengers: Infinity War, changed from Avengers: Infinity War Part 1. Avengers 4 is now Untitled Avengers, instead of the misleading Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. The release dates of both movies are staying the same at 5/4/18 and 5/3/19, respectively.

In an EXXXCLUSIVE interview with The Outhouse, one half of The Russo Brothers, Anthony Russo said, "You know how we get all of our material from the comics? Well we're taking another page from the comics, pun intended. Comics sales always drop significantly with the second issue of a series. So why would we include "Part 2" in the title? It's all about money, which is what Marvel is all about."

Robert Downey Jr, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Elizabeth Olsen have been confirmed to appear in the films, with the assumption being that Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannson, Samuel L. Jackson will also will appear, if the price is right. The Russos also have teased appearances by Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange as well as Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, though Marvel Studios has clarified that Captain Marvel will debut first in a stand-alone film to be released between Infinity War and Untitled Avengers.
