Avengers: Infinity War was earth-shattering as Mad Titan ‘Thanos’ turned our worst nightmare come true. He was indeed the strongest cosmic-supervillain who assembled the Infinity Gauntlet with all the six Infinity stones representing cosmic singularities that binds the universe.
He snapped his fingers resulting in wiping off half the life in the entire universe including half of all superheroes such as Spiderman, Dr. Strange, Black Panther, Bucky, Entire Guardians of the Galaxy except Rocket etc. The Mad Titan achieved his purpose of rebalancing the universe; subsequently enjoying sun-sets in the grateful universe.
Well, the fans believed that their beloved superheroes will come back from the dead in Avengers 4 as there are sequels planned to some of their solo franchises. But Infinity War writers insisted that deaths are permanent.
Markus said: “[Avengers 4] doesn’t do what you think it does. It is a different movie than you think it is. Also…[the deaths are] real. I just want to tell you it’s real, and the sooner you accept that the sooner you will be able to move on to the next stage of grief”.
Dave Bautista aka Drax has been in the news for being the vocal opponent to Gunn’s ouster from MCU. He is threatening Marvel studio of leaving the franchise but he is holding back for now. But while talking to Good Morning Britain, he revealed a major spoiler that his character is still alive. He said:
“We definitely see more Guardians in the upcoming Avengers, which we’ve already shot. Oddly enough, I guess I wasn’t supposed to say anything, but I was already saying before Avengers 3 was released that I’d already filmed 4, and I was signed up for Guardians 3. I’ve shot scenes for it, so I must come back somehow.”
“I felt a sense of guilt because I don’t know if I was supposed to say anything, and nobody told me not to say anything,” Bautista added.
Avengers 4 will bring closure to so many storylines, character arcs, and mysteries. It will mark the culmination of everything that’s happened in MCU.
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
