Times Colonist - - Arts -

LOS AN­GE­LES — The fourth Avengers movie fi­nally has a ti­tle. Marvel Stu­dios and the Walt Dis­ney Co. said Fri­day that the highly an­tic­i­pated, and closely guarded, con­clu­sion to the In­fin­ity War saga will be called Avengers: Endgame. The stu­dios also re­leased the first trailer for the film, in which Scar­lett Jo­hans­son’s Black Widow char­ac­ter ex­plains that Thanos re­ally did erase half the pop­u­la­tion. Avengers: In­fin­ity War ended on that cliffhanger as many of Marvel’s su­per­heroes dis­solved into the air. It went on to be­come the high­est gross­ing film in the Marvel Cine­matic Uni­verse with over $2 bil­lion in ticket sales.

Di­rected by An­thony Russo and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame will also now de­but in North Amer­i­can the­atres a week ear­lier on April 26, 2019.

Scar­lett Jo­hans­son will star as Black Widow in the next Avengers movie.
