There's a reason we don't yet know the title of the fourth Avengers movie. Apparently, the title would ruin something about the end of Avengers: Infinity War - at least according to Kevin Feige.
He spoke to CinemaBlend to say that Marvel are yet to reveal the title because it's too loaded.
Me: When I talked with Joe and Anthony Russo last year, I guess a couple months ago, they mentioned... we [the public] don't know the name of Avengers 4, that they're not going to announce it, it's going to be a minute. I'm curious if the reason for that is because it's a spoiler. Kevin Feige: Yeah, for sure.
Sure, that's vague, but it also means a lot.
It had originally been titled Avengers: Infinity War Part II, but that was dropped as the Russos openly admitted they wanted to distinguish difference between the two movies. Now that they aren't being filmed simultaneously, that difference is further being pushed, and Feige has further underlined that in conversation with Cinemablend, calling the two movies "very different".
How they'll be different remains to be seen, but you'd have to suspect the first will be a downer with the Avengers left in tatters, and Thanos in the ascendancy and the second will be a case of regrouping, building a new team and biting back. Unless we're getting an entirely different film, and the only spoiler is that Thanos won't make it past the first part...?
Considering this in the context of Feige's comments about a potential move away from the way the MCU will be presented after phase 3 - with the possibility of the Phase model being dropped entirely - suggests lots of changes could be afoot. Perhaps this film will be the start of a whole new MCU?
