Don Cheadle is one brave man.
He might play War Machine, but the Avengers star has trolled fans and played with fire when it comes to the reaction of his bosses, the Russo brothers, after he teased the forthcoming title of the fourth film.
Its a ballsy move, mate.
Kept so tightly under wraps the past few months, and we gather wont be uncovered for some time in the lead up to its May 2019 release, Avengers 4 has been a hot topic of conversation with fans and its cast.
Now Don has done a Mark Ruffalo, by trolling fans with the title.
After Mark revealed the title on Jimmy Fallon a little over a week ago, Don has jumped aboard the spoiler train with his own version.
One fan asked him on Twitter: Don are you done with the Avengers 4 reshoots? And if so, can you please give us a hint on the title? (If youre allowed, we dont want to get you in trouble like Mark and Tom )
He responded rather cheekily: i shouldnt do this, but because i love you all so much ill give you a hint. the title will incorporate letters that will be organized in a coherent fashion with the express purpose of communicating to the consumer the content of the film. (im im so much trouble…)

Fans saw the tongue-in-cheek message, as they came back with a lol or two.
One replied: Damn it, well that means it wont be called Avengers: Covfefe Wars
Another added: whoa whoa whoa, EASY ON THE SPOILERS!!! Some of us want to be surprised!!!!
A third said: Dang dude, there goes your career….
It comes after Mark was fired by the directors of the franchise, after he spoiled the title.
Ahead of his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mark tweeted: @JimmyFallon, I trust that you will cut my spoiler slip on the show tonight. That was “off the record” homey. Please dont get me in trouble with Marvel (Barry) again. DM me back. M.
Alas, Jimmy responded: Dude, its too late – already sent the final show to Burbank for air. Are you sure youre gonna be in trouble? We could maybe bleep it out. What is “DM”?
And after seeing this convo, the Russo Brothers chimed in: Mark, youre fired. However, seeing as filming for Avengers 4 has wrapped, we reckon the Hulk is in the clear.
Lets wait and see if they take Dons bait…
Avengers 4 is released May 2019.
