Avengers: Infinity War was a big impactful crossover event which was full of death and destruction. Thanos came in, laid down bodies like it was nothing! Perhaps it was actually nothing and all those bodies are believed to be coming back as Avengers 4 will undo the events of the Infinity War and bring back the Avengers who died and were disintegrated! But the big question that surrounds the upcoming movie is that who is going to make it out of the next big crossover alive?
With the aspects of Time Travel and other big things happening in Avengers 4, we are going to see the original 6 Avengers make one final stand against the Mad Titan and it is obvious that all of them won’t make it alive since the contracts of the big guns of the MCU will be exhausted by then, and Marvel will have to kill off at least some of them because they can’t just retire everyone!
Some of the original 6 have to go down, and a new post by Redditor Meme_abstinent also claims these Avengers to go down/ make it out of Avengers 4 alive. His theory claims almost exactly the same thing that our sight has covered in the past and it ties into the rumour which states that 2 of the original 6 will die! His post begins with the survivors of Avengers 4:
“Tony will most likely live. Though a lot of people expect him to die for maximum emotional impact there is simply [too] great of a use for him afterwards. Plus they have hinted at his retirement for too long and has a baby on the way. Sure Marvel can and will get sad, but that is too tragic.
Widow will live. She basically has a movie confirmed. And with Deadpool coming over to the MCU (introducing rated R Marvel Movies) you know damn well they will make it rated R.
Thor will live. His character has been redefined, his friends have been changed entirely, and frankly he’s too many peoples’s new favorite Avenger. Safe.”
The Redditor is spot on with Tony (Marvel may want to keep him for future cameos) and Thor (his contract would be extended) but perhaps his theory for Black Widow may be partially wrong since the solo movie will be a prequel to Iron Man. But she has to be in A-Force, so partially right! The theory continues by giving a diplomatic answer for the Hulk and his fate is, in fact, dicey at this particular time. He is going through a 3-story arc and Avengers 4 could be the final appearance for him, so anything could happen. The theory continues:
“Banner [is] 50/50.*If he lives, he’s crippled. Leaked promo art reveals a possibly fused Hulk and Banner so that could be a good way to end his character arc. However, that also leaves for a lot of further development for Hulk/Banner, and with the Fantastic Four coming over Marvel may want to see Strange, Tony, Banner and Reed together on screen. Very split.”
By now you would have figured the ones who are going down, and we have to admit that Avengers 4 ending with this outcome is the more sensible way to end the first 3 phases of MCU. The Redditor says:
“Hawkeye will die. Great in small doses, Hawkeye will actually be an active Avenger in Avengers 4 because his family fell victim from Thanos’ snap. Or his kids did or something. So dying to bring his family back would be extremely noble and emotional. Plus at least 2 Avengers have to die so there you go.
Steve will definitely die. That completes his arc properly, and that would prompt the governments of the world to amend the Sokovia Accords Plus when Avengers 4 started filming, there was a casting call for a funeral scene. Beyond anyone else in the MCU it would be Steve Rodgers to be given a grand funeral. This one is more theory, but it is so much easier plot wise to see a distressed Tony watching Steve be put to rest than the other way around. Or maybe it’s both their funerals. Or all of them.”
These two are the most expendable Avengers and they are the likely ones who will lay down their lives so others could live. The Redditor teases the fate of the rest of the characters including Thanos:
That other half the universe is alive.
Kinda. In the Soul Stone. That or time travel but either way by the end of it those who were snapped out INCLUDING THE HEROES will be alive. No snapped heroes will die.
Thanos will die…Or get trapped in Soul Stone.
The stakes are huge, life and death and the intensity and emotional impact of Thanos dying (rather than escaping or being taken alive) is too high. I hope he [doesn’t] but…oh well.
Gamora is alive. Sorta. In the Soul Stone. That’s been basically confirmed in the director commentary on the Infinity War DVD. Plus with GOTG 3 coming out please, Gamora is safe.”
All the Avengers who were disintegrated are coming back for future movies, so we’ll see who amongst them bites the dust. Spidey, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, the Wasp and the Guardians won’t. Perhaps Drax could be killed off due to Dave Bautista’s recent banter with Disney, but no one else. It would be interesting how Marvel handles Thanos and Gamora. Thanos needs to be killed off so we could focus on the build-up of the next big bad!
