Ummm, if this is true, it does NOT sound great for your favourite Avengers. At all.

The release date for the highly-anticipated Avengers 4 is creeping closer and closer and little by little, more information about the follow-up to Infinity War is starting to trickle in.

From the synopsis to the leaked pictures, all signs are hinting that the storyline will follow the remaining Avengers in their bid to win back the infinity stones and stop Thanos from destroying everything in his path. There's been talk of time-travel, there's been talk of dead characters returning but there's been no chatter about the actual title of the film... until now, that is.

While the film is referred to on the internet as Avengers 4, that won't be the official title when it drops in cinemas. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that the official title of the film hasn't been released yet because it could be considered a spoiler. And now it's apparently been leaked... we can see why they wanted to keep fans on their toes a little longer.

Trent Opaloch, a cinematographer who has worked on Infinity War as well as The Winter Soldier and Civil War updated his website a few days ago with his most recent projects and... well... brace yourselves for Avengers: End Game.

The credit, which was clocked by Omega Underground, has now been removed from the website, but not before fans managed to grab several screenshots. It's now been edited to read 'Avengers 4'.

Of course, this title might not actually be the final title. It could be a placeholder until the real title is revealed or it could get changed, seeing as it's leaked. Or, you know, it could totally be real.

'End Game' certainly hints at a definitive conclusion to the Thanos drama, which means some deaths are going to be permanent. Fans have also pointed out that 'end game' is already a phrase used by Doctor Strange in Infinity War too.

It seems like we won't actually find out the truth behind the slip up until after we've seen the teaser trailer for Captain Marvel anyway. "That'll be after the Captain Marvel teaser probably, announcing that title," Feige said. "It'll be towards the end of the year with however we launch that film."

Settle in, boys... the quest to find out the Avengers 4 title is not over yet.
