The stakes could very well not exist for Avengers 4, because, having regard to the phenomenal success of Infinity War, it is difficult to see how the result could be a failure at the box-office.
Already since the end of’Avengers : Infinity War, good student, has left us on a big shock that requires a response, and then, because Disney is a machine of war in terms of communication and he knows very well excite the desire and the impatience in the spectators of the month prior to the release of the film. It is thus necessary to prepare for a real war in the media to promote the Avengers 4, which is scheduled to release on our screens on April 24, 2019.
If the offensive marketing itself will not start before next year, history does not trivialize the event, and because it is necessary to take care of Captain Marvel before (given that the film comes out on 6 march), the studio dabbled in a bit of time in time, in history to take the temperature of the public.
A bit like with Joe Russo, one of the two directors of the film, who, during a Question-and-Answer on Instagram was given some news of the next Avengers :
“Is that the stakes will be higher in Avengers 4 ? Absolutely. 100%. They will be much more high than any film that we have released to date, without any possible doubt. We are at the half of the assembly. So we’ve only scratched the surface of special effects. There are more than 3,000 plans of special effects in the film… We have just started to work on the music with Alan Silvestri and we get always the film. For the moment, it lasts 3 hours, so we’ll see if it holds. But for now, it is 3 hours.”
A film, therefore, even more huge than the previous, even if it should not be forgotten that it does not give any real information on the actual duration of the film, which will be probably less in the end. As to the question of whether the public will soon discover the first images, via a teaser or a trailer, Joe Russo remains very vague on a possible surprise by the end of the year. Like what, the psychological war has already begun.
