Now that Avengers: Infinity War is here, we look forward to the final film in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3. When does Avengers 4 come to theaters?
This is certainly an exciting time for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Infinity War received pretty good reviews after the Hollywood premiere according to Rotten Tomatoes, although not quite reaching the near-unreachable levels of Black Panther earlier in the year. The audience for these movies are big into crossover comic book events, and it certainly seems like Marvel is set to deliver once more.
There are as many questions heading into Avengers: Infinity War as there are heading into Avengers 4. Somehow, we’ve yet to see any trace of the Soul Stone before this movie, despite everybody believing it would be in Wakanda. We know that there have to be some character deaths, but just how many superheroes are going to die in this conflict with Thanos?
Furthermore, Avengers 4 is the final film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s third phase, putting the long-winding story to an ultimate end next year. Knowing that, there are still two more movies expected to be released between these final two Avengers movies, with Ant-Man and the Wasp coming later this year and Captain Marvel in 2019.

We still don’t know how those two characters will fit into the final chapter of this story, as Ant-Man is taking a subdued role in Infinity War. Carol Danvers’ movie isn’t even set in the current day, providing a ton of possibilities for these Thanos-based movies. The events of Captain Marvel’s ’90s-based chapter may end up hinting at some sort of solution for how to end an all-powerful being that wants to control the six Infinity Stones.
For those wanting to catch Avengers 4, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer. That film has a May 3, 2019 release date, coming 53 weeks after Avengers: Infinity War. Lives will be lost. Heroes will fall. Sacrifices will be made. A whole bunch of bigwig Hollywood actors are going to charm it up on the big screen. See you all next year!
