The Avengers 4 trailer may never arrive, let’s all just accept it – CNET

Who must we overpower for the trailer?

Marvel Studios

At a special event in Los Angeles tonight, the Russo brothers still couldn't be bothered to reveal the title of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel. The film, set to arrive in theaters next spring, will be the 22nd in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we have zero inkling of what it'll be called (does it matter?) or when a trailer will arrive (maybe never?). We do know exactly how long until the movie is released though, thanks to that mocking Marvel countdown.

It's not that it's too late for a trailer, but you wouldn't know it by the level of hype among fans. Avengers 4 is on track for a fairly "normal" trailer release schedule. But we fans are losing our minds thinking about how "important" some dates are or how perfectly balanced it would be if the trailer arrived on a certain date.

Plus, we're still left wondering if directors the Russo brothers were trolling us with that earlier Insta full of silhouettes and ladders. We do know that the movie may be a beast in length, as director Joe Russo revealed less than a month ago it was about three hours long (at the time, that is).

While marketing for Avengers 4 wasn't on the agenda for the Collider-sponsored event — and Joe Russo airhorn-ed any non-Infinity War questions — the directors were still willing to fuel the hype train. You can watch the whole event at Collider's YouTube page once it's up. But until then, here are a few fun facts we learned from the two conductors of what may be the largest and hardest hype train in Marvel history.

The Russo brothers may be done with superhero films, unless Disney greenlights Secret Wars (no word on which version).

The Defenders will probably never be Avengers.

They talked about involving the Netflix Marvel characters in Infinity War, but they say it was too complicated to correlate story between not only the other marvel films in production but also the tv productions. They decided the best way to tell the story was to keep it MCU.

Asgard is hurting after the Snap. What could this mean for Thor, who gets power from Asgard and its people?

We knew there were fake scenes and crazy plots and that no single actor had the full script. But this would've been a wild twist.

An example of a fake scene The Russo Brothers wrote to keep Infinity War secrecy, Gamora threw Thanos off the cliff in the Soul Stone sequence. Im not even sure if they are kidding.

The MCU will continue to diversify — which means there's a whole new set of characters to speculate over who's joining our heroes in Phase 4.

Asked about the possibility of Latino characters in the MCU, the Russo Brothers say they dont want to spoil anything but they think well find the MCU will continue to diversify.

Thor's Stormbreaker is not more powerful than the Infinity Gauntlet.

Is Stormbreaker more powerful than the Infinity Gauntlet? Thanos didnt know what was coming his way and if he did he would have been able to use the stones to better react to Stormbreaker.

Loki is d-e-d, dead. So's Gamora. Oh, and Vision.

The Russos were asked about a fan theory that Bruce Banner is really Loki in disguise. They answered. That “Loki is dead.”

The Soul Stone has the ability to manipulate your soul and your essence of who you are. Thanks uses the Soul Stone to pull Strange out of his own body when hes multiple Stranges. Thanos also uses the soul stone to talk to his dead daughter.
