Back when Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige first revealed the ambitious slate for Phase 3 movies, Avengers: Infinity War was announced as two parts- Part 1 and Part 2. It was signifying an ambitious conclusion to the first decade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But shortly before production of the first part began, something changed. More precisely, Marvel changed course and revealed that the second part of Infinity War would have its own unique name. Now, Marvel Studios Executive Producer has revealed the reasoning behind that decision.
Why Was The Name Changed From Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 to Avengers: Endgame
Even though now we know what the second part of Avengers: Infinity War ultimately came to be called, but Marvel did take their sweet time announcing the official title. The name, Avengers: Endgame was surely fitting for a movie that would serve as the culmination for Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 23 film Infinity Saga.
Three months after the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios Executive Producer Trinh Tran has clarified why the name of the movie was changed from Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. He said:
“We wanted to make these two movies distinctive and give each their own story. Infinity War was a story about Thanos and Endgame was a story about our heroes.”
