Recent rumors claiming Avengers 4’s subtitle being “Infinity Gauntlet” have now been debunked.
One thing is for sure, Marvel fans are very detail-oriented. You really have to be careful of what you say around them. Any one slip-up can be misinterpreted. And that’s what happened when Zoe Saldana accidentally said, “Gauntlet,” during an interview where she talked about filming for Avengers 4.
Fans started to speculate what she meant by that word. The consensus was Avengers 4‘s official title will be “Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet.” We now know that’s not true. But like all things propagated by the internet, it’s hard to put that genie back in the bottle.

Today, via Yahoo Movies UK, Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn stepped in to contain some of that damage with a few words of his own.
"“It’s not the title … My guess is that Zoe just misspoke. I’ll talk to Zoe today, but I would imagine that is just Zoe misspeaking and saying ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ instead of ‘Infinity War’.”"
We’ll buy it, James … for now. Marvel Studios could be pulling one of the sneakiest and smartest marketing campaigns ever. What better way to get fans excited than to slip hints here and there and then publicly deny them. It’ll only cause more chatter. One thing Marvel Studios does right is their planning—and the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe is proof that the studio never does things by accident.
