Why Iron Man Needs To Die In Avengers: Infinity War

Sorry, Iron Man stans, but the truth hurts. Your boy Tony Stark needs to die in Avengers: Infinity War, not Captain America.

Ever since Avengers: Infinity War was announced, the internet has been rife with rumors about which heroes will perish. We’ve been teased for years about possible deaths, but all we’ve been treated to was Quicksilver’s demise in Avengers: Age of Ultron (and let’s be honest here, no one really cared about him except for his twin sister). This time, though, it seems to be for real. Marvel will – gasp – kill off a main eventer. Whether it’s permanent or not remains to be seen…

All evidence points to the victim being Captain America, since Chris Evans has revealed that his time with the MCU is up and he isn’t coming back. That said, it could all be a big ruse to keep the scent cold for the online sleuths and act as a clever diversion tactic. If Marvel Studios is smart, though, it’ll shy away from killing off Cap and aim the Infinity Gauntlet straight at Tony Stark’s arc reactor. Sorry, Iron Man stans, but it’s true – your boy needs to die in Avengers: Infinity War.
