The long-awaited third Avengers film officially has a name, and it’s slightly different than what was previously announced.

Disney has announced that Avengers: Infinity War Part I is now officially titled Avengers: Infinity War. However, in a surprise move, Avengers: Infinity War Part II is no more as the film is now simply: untitled Avengers movie. Both films will still retain their original release dates and filming will start at the end of this year.

The title change doesn’t come as a surprise as Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo said in May that they planned on renaming both Avengers films. “The two movies are two very different movies,” Joe Russo told Uproxx, with Anthony Russo adding that the shared subtitle is “misleading.”

“The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the [final] titles yet. But, yes, we will change it,” said Joe Russo. “That is a scoop: we will retitle them.”

A lot is riding on the third Avengers film since Infinity War is the culmination of all three phases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Basing what the Russos said about the titles, my original theory was that the first part would be titled Avengers: Thanos Rising and would focus on Thanos gaining the Infinity Stones and creating the gauntlet at the end of the film. The second part would be titled Avengers: Infinity War where the film focuses on the battle between Thanos and the entire MCU. Alas, this isn’t the case.

What do you think the fourth Avengers film should be called? Sound off with your ideas in the comments section below!

Avengers: Infinity War battle in theaters on May 4, 2018, and Avengers Untitled is set to be released on May 3, 2019.
