I guess I don’t have to tell you that the Avengers Infinity War Trailer is here. Thanos has come knocking on Earth’s Doors and to claim his rightful place as the greatest and fiercest evil the Avengers have ever faced, both in Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But it won’t be a goody two shoes tale where the heroes defeat the alien army, repel back the invasion and have shawarma in the post-credits.
The Infinity Gauntlet saga of the movies was especially brutal. The writers went to great lengths to ensure that the heroes who the fans thought indestructible and invincible up until then, would die a quick but brutal death. Marvel’s The Infinity Gauntlet was the first issue that truly made the revered heroes vulnerable, their deaths happened within seconds.
No one came close to threatening the fans hope of the good guys succeeding look so bleak. It was a milestone in Comic Book History.
If the MCU could give us even half of that action in Infinity War, consider yourself lucky. But that’s not all. If the MCU decides to stick to the comic books, there will be death. A lot of Death. Blood of our own beloved heroes will be smeared across the universe.
The Winter Soldier
His death would mean the end of the fan favorite Falcon-Winter Soldier interaction. Man, that was the one really funny moment in Civil War.But Bucky Barnes won’t likely bite the dust. Somebody needs to push the MCU after phase 3. The Winter Soldier is too valuable an asset. That is why he has the greatest odds of making it back.
Falcon made his official debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. His wings and guns may not be a match for Thanos’s Infinity Gauntlet powers and the formidable Black Order. Falcon is one of Captain America’s staunchest allies. But his death will most likely happen in the Infinity War saga.
