Hot on the heels of Marvel moving the release
of the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War
up a week, a Marvel executive is now hinting at another big announcement coming tomorrow. Shortly after Marvel announced Infinity War
's new April 27th release date, Ryan Penagos, Marvel's VP & Creative Executive of New Media, tweeting something intriguing.
The tweet, seen below, contained a gif of Tommy Lee Jones' character in Men In Black
saying, "Imagine what you'll know tomorrow." As you can imagine, this has sent Marvel fans into a frenzy, speculating what sort of news Marvel could announce tomorrow.
There's quite a few theories floating around. The most obvious, of course, is Avengers: Infinity War
related. Penagos' tweet came just 10 minutes after today's big Infinity War
announcement, so some figure the timing of his tweet means it could be related to the film's marketing campaign. Given that we're now less than two months away from the highly anticipated movie, it's very possible we could be getting a new trailer. We've only had one official teaser trailer and a brief 30-second Super Bowl TV spot thus far. What better way to follow-up today's exciting news than with a brand new trailer? It's also possible that he could be teasing some other sort of announcement, like when tickets for Infinity War
will go on sale.
And then we have some bolder predictions, like the possibility of Marvel announcing a Fantastic Four
movie. It's a wild theory, but that's what you get when fans overanalyze the wording of a tweet. Marvel's use of the word "FANTASTIC" particularly caught some fans' eyes, leading them to speculate that the Fantastic Four
could be introduced to the MCU tomorrow. Currently, the film rights to Fantastic Four
belong to Fox, but as we're all well aware, Disney is in the process of bringing them (and the X-Men
) home to Marvel. Unfortunately, the deal between Disney and Fox is undergoing regulatory approval, so unless this is some sort of joint venture like we saw with Sony and Spider-Man: Homecoming
, then it's unlikely to happen.
These are the two most obvious predictions, but with so much in the pipeline
, tomorrow's announcement could literally be anything. Let the speculation begin.
