Avengers: Infinity War was the ultimate thriller as it had the ending no one expected. The jaw-dropping end showed us all the heroes turn to dust as Thanos accomplished his life’s goal by snapping his fingers which resulted in wiping out half the population of the entire Universe. So, by this means we saw that many of the Avengers also turned to dust while some of the characters did not even have an appearance. So here is a list of all the characters confirmed to be returning or appearing in Avengers 4.
One of the most shocking disintegrations, in the end, was of Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange. These guys just got here and already have sequels confirmed, so how could they really die. Moreover, Black Panther is Marvel’s biggest money maker now, so there is no way that he could have died forever. He has been confirmed to be there in Avengers 4 as a set photo of Avengers 4 from the time when T’Challa bought the American neighborhood has been leaked online.
So, we not only know that T’Challa is going to be back, but it is now confirmed that Time Travel will exist in Avengers 4.
Loki has had a gradual shift to the side of the heroes and over here, being the God of Mischief, he started off as if he is again going to join the side of the evil Thanos. But as everything he does, this was also a ploy played by him to distract Thanos as this time he understood that the threat of Thanos was pretty real, so he decided to do the right thing and take down Thanos himself.
Since Thanos is not a being that can be easily trifled with, Loki had to pay for what he tried to pull off and met his demise at the hands of Thanos. like Heimdall, Loki has also fulfilled his purpose and may not revive, but given that we have seen some set photos that show time travel sequences involving Loki, we know that Hiddleston will be back.
Vision was killed by Scarlet Witch as she had to pay the price of being a hero, killing her loved one for the greater good of humanity destroying the Mind Stone with him, but Thanos actually brought him back using the Time Stone, and brutally murdered the enhanced android himself, retrieving the Mind Stone from his head. But as we saw that Vision’s body did not fade away, it just went grey.
Throughout the movie, it was teased that Vision is more than just the Mind Stone, and even if the Mind Stone is ripped, there would still be a good chunk of Vision left. Moreover, Shuri teased that she could actually fix Vision and make him better. Paul Bettany has teased quite a bit of time that Vision may be back, so we might not be done with the android just yet. Here is what he said in an interview:
“It felt like the biggest movie that I’ve ever made and will ever make, and we’ve still got to make the next one. It’s f****** crazy!… The call sheets are bananas. When you see the list of cast members, you’re like, “How is anybody else making a film in Hollywood, this year? How are they getting films financed? Everybody is in this!”
The fact that he has used the phrase “we’ve still got to make the next one” is a direct confirmation.
As Thanos Snapped his fingers using the full power of the Infinity Gauntlet, we saw that people started to perish slowly and steadily. The first person to turn into ash was none other than Bucky. His dying word was in total disbelief as he saw and felt himself dying, calling out his best friend’s name “Steve”.
Since Sebastian Stan has a big contract pending, he will return in the next movie. He is also seen to be the best candidate to take the mantle of Captain America in MCU Phase 4.
Dave Bautista’s Drax is one of the first characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy to get confirmed for Avengers 4. As we know, he was one of the disintegrated heroes, so we could imagine that Mantis and Star-Lord will also be returning.
Spidey had one of the most emotional deaths in Infinity War. He was fighting death literally as he could sense his body is slowly being teleported to another dimension. He had a major role in the movie as he was behind Maw’s death and we know that he already has two more sequels coming in as a part of the deal with Sony that Marvel has. This itself is a major confirmation for us that Spidey will soon be seen crawling again in Avengers 4.
Many of us were upset that Hawkeye did not show up in Avengers: Infinity War, the reason given for his absence was also unsatisfying as apparently, he accepted a deal offered by the government where he agreed for a house arrest. But we know that he is going to be in Avengers 4 as Ronin.
The theory is he will lose his beloved family after Thanos snapped his fingers which will push him to the breaking point. He has already been seen on the sets sporting a brand new outfit, so we know that he is confirmed to have a major story arc in Avengers 4.
The Post credits scene of Infinity War hinted at the entry of Captain Marvel. Before Nick Fury turned into ash, he sent a distress signal to Captain Marvel alerting her of the current situation. According to Marvel President Kevin Feige, she is the most powerful superhero in the MCU.
Now we know that she is first going to appear in her solo movie, but Brie Larson has also been confirmed for Avengers 4 as well. She is going to be a major part of taking Thanos down. It makes sense to bring her into Avengers 4 when Avengers and Guardians failed to stop the Mad Titan and wiped out half the humanity at the snap of his fingers.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
The only reason why these two were absent in Infinity War was that Marvel was playing along with their own solo movie entering right into the story arc of Avengers 4. We have already seen Ant-Man in many set photos in his new suit along with Captain America, Tony, and Hulk. Also, Evangeline Lily confirmed that she has a small but significant role in Avengers 4. They are both unscathed by the events of Infinity War as they are very likely inside Quantum Realm where time and space doesn’t exist.
Marvel spent quite some time building her story arc, giving her a love interest and also making her character a major part of Infinity War. She is one of the most powerful female characters that hold the future of the MCU. She broke the ‘Mind Stone’ with her witch powers and took down a huge chunk of Outriders. She is obviously a front-runner to take the MCU Phase 4 forward after Phase 3 ends so she will be returning for sure.
