Jumping the Gunn, part 327562: The ever-retweetable James Gunn has clarified that Infinity Gauntlet is not the title of the Avengers 4 film, correcting reports from yesterday that had Guardians of the Galaxy 2 star Zoe Saldana referring to the film by that name. According to Gunn, Saldana misspoke, and I have to say I can see that happening pretty easily… Gauntlet, War, Gems, it’s all Infinity to me too.
James Gunn, the writer and director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’, says Zoe Saldana “misspoke” when she told reporters at the film’s UK premiere that ‘Avengers 4’ was titled ‘Infinity Gauntlet’.
Yahoo Movies spoke to Gunn at the European press junket and we asked for his reaction to the title.
“It’s not the title,” Gunn tells us in the video above.
“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’.”
The actress who plays Gamora in Marvel’s sci-fi sequel told BBC’s Lizo Mzimba, “The Guardians just shot their part when it comes to ‘Infinity War’ – the first part – and we all have to go back for ‘Gauntlet’ later this year.”
