Avengers: Infinity War is going to be an important film for many reasons, chief amongst them being that it signals the end of an era. It’s no secret that Marvel has been slowly building to a new roster for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, one that will see the likes of Iron Man, Cap, Thor and the rest of the gang make room for fresher faces like Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and more.
With that in mind, it’s widely assumed that Joe and Anthony Russo’s blockbuster will see a few of the titular heroes meet their maker, and while this hasn’t been confirmed just yet, studio exec Kevin Feige has seemingly hinted at as much. While chatting with JoBlo to promote Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Marvel mastermind was asked if Infinity War will be the final chapter for some of the MCU heroes and he replied pretty definitively, simply saying “yes.”
Doesn’t get much clearer than that, right?
Though Feige doesn’t explicitly state that heroes will fall, it’s not hard to read between the lines here. We’ve no doubt that several characters will bite the bullet in the film and fans should be prepared to wave goodbye to some of their favorites. Admittedly, seeing Marvel kill off someone like Iron Man or even Cap would be pretty shocking (though there is precedence for the latter in the comics), but some of the supporting characters could definitely be at their end. For one, Vision has long been rumored to die, and probably will, and it also wouldn’t be too crazy to think that either Hawkeye or Black Widow may go, too.
Regardless of who does and doesn’t make it out of Avengers: Infinity War alive, it’s probably safe to say that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be a vastly different place by the time the credits roll. This is a hugely significant outing for the franchise and with so many different characters and plotlines all converging, it’s sure to be an absolutely explosive movie, one that’s sounding better and better by the day.
