Nine months from now, we'll know how it all ends. The cliffhanger finale of Joe and Anthony Russo's Avengers: Infinity War will have played itself out in Avengers 4 -- a movie that still doesn't have a proper title, synopsis, or trailer. This is uncharted territory in the film world, as marketing departments usually work hand in hand with creative teams to begin selling an upcoming blockbuster to potential audiences. Marvel's audience for Avengers 4 doesn't have to be sold. They're showing up, even if this thing's still called Avengers 4 when it opens on May 3, 2019.

A trailer for Avengers 4, by this stage of the game, would be nice. Even if we are using Avengers: Infinity War as an example, a sizzle reel of tasty footage had played at D23 and, later, at San Diego Comic-Con. As for Avengers 4? Nada. Zip. Nothing. Radio silence. Is this normal? Nope. But nothing regarding Avengers 4 has been normal, and that likely won't change any time soon.

Will we get a trailer? Yes, likely. (Though it's also possible that we will NOT get one, as Marvel Studios answers to no one, and is making up the rules of this game as it goes.) When will that trailer drop? It's unclear. There's no Star Wars movie sitting patiently in December, waiting for the Avengers 4 trailer to be attached. And the next Marvel Studios movie isn't coming for a long while. So, based on what we know, let's make our best guesses.

In November

This is the educated guess, and it's based off of the fact that November is when the official Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped. November 29, to be exact. Seeing as how Infinity War also opened in late April/early May (we expect Avenger 4 to move back into April, like its predecessor did), this would mean that the pending sequel is staying on a similar marketing track, getting audiences excited for the conclusion to the battle with Thanos (Josh Brolin) as they head into theaters over Thanksgiving weekend. The trailer likely would arrive online first, but a trailer drop near the end of November seems to make the most sense.
