5 hit movies with hilarious working titles

Who would’ve thought that the biggest movies of all time worked under titles like “Wimpy,” “Planet Ice,” and “Group Hug”?

This epic on-screen team-up of several of Marvel’s biggest superheroes was a major-enough film to require a totally unrelated working title during production.

Writer-director Joss Whedon’s unusual choice? ‘Group Hug’.

Since the film takes several heroes, many of whom already had their own movies, and brings them together to save the world, this title seems appropriate.

This is despite the fact the heroes don’t get along that well until the third act of the film.

And Group Hug isn’t the only fun working title in the Marvel universe.

Captain America: The First Avenger worked under the title ‘Frostbite’, which seems apt considering that the titular hero ends up frozen in ice at the end of the movie.

Check out these mind-blowing movie theories, and get ready to re-watch your favourite flicks with fresh eyes.
