I'm not going to go eagle-eyed crazy over this the way some other sites have, but it is rather fun to speculate on the title of Avengers 4. In the past we'd heard clues about the title would begin to appear after the trailer for Captain Marvel, which arrived yesterday.

Sure, some sequels have been better than others but there's no sign of the killer doll going away any time soon. In fact, with recent word of a fresh reboot and the continuation of the original series continuity plus a TV series, there's about to be more Child's

When M. Night Shyamalan was at his lowest point, he managed to somehow dig even lower with 2010's The Last Airbender. The live-action adaptation of the beloved animated series is reviled by pretty much everybody.  It currently sits at 6% on Rotten Tomatoes, failed to be the huge smash it should've been, and was hit with fairly undeniable whitewashing concerns. Sequels? Forget about it. But
