Next year, Avengers: Infinity War will burst into theaters, and the highly anticipated blockbuster won't leave its massive roster unscathed. As production on the film nears completion, evidence is mounting that one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's main heroes will not survive the film. Earth's Mightiest Heroes are in for a rude awakening thanks to Thanos, and one hero will pay the ultimate price for the group's ignorance.
Recently, the head of Marvel Studios all but confirmed that one (or more) leads in the Avengers flick will bite it. The producer sat down for an interview with JoBlo, and Feige had this to say when asked if Avengers: Infinity War would serve as final chapters for some characters: "Yes."
"We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies," Feige explained. "And they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that's all we're thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we'll see."
It isn't surprising to hear that Avengers: Infinity War will have some high stakes attached to it. The film will see Earth's Mightiest Heroes lead a slew of MCU heroes into battle against Thanos. The Mad Titan has plans to flatten the universe in his pursuit of the Infinity Stones, and you can read up on who his most likely victims will be below:
Any and all of the Avengers are vulnerable to Thanos' murderous rage, but Thor may be the one who permanently kicks the bucket in Marvel's upcoming movie. Chris Hemsworth has starred in a number of MCU films as his third solo film will premiere in November. As one of the Avengers' founding members, time is ticking on Thor and his spotlight in the MCU. The God of Thunder would be an unexpected hero to die by Thanos' hand, and the death could give fans some intriguing emotional fallout. As audiences know, Loki is directly connected to Thanos as the Frost Giant sought the Mad Titan's help following his exile from Asgard. Loki and all his mixed feelings for Thor would react strongly to his adopted brother's death, and the loss of Thor would give the MCU a chance to bring in Lady Thor if it so wanted.prevnext
It is a given that Vision will be destroyed by Thanos at some point during Avengers: Infinity War. The character was only brought into the MCU during Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the artificial creature has already become a fan-favorite. The Mad Titan will send scores of fans into tears when he plucks Vision's Mind Stone from his forehead, but he will be rebuilt - right? Well, there is always a chance the MCU may write out Vision to bolster an even more tragic backstory for the Scarlet Witch. The two characters have circled each other romantically since their debuts, and the permanent loss of Vision would weigh heavily on the Maximoff 'miracle.' If Thanos wants to know what true pain feels like, then all he has to do is trigger Scarlet Witch by killing off her paramour.prevnext
Iron Man is the founding member of the MCU, and he has become one of the most popular members of the Avengers. Tony Stark may not have led the team until recently, but his ethos and hair-brained schemes characterize the team thoroughly. Robert Downey Jr. is the genius behind Iron Man, and the actor's tenure with Marvel Studios always seems to be under negotiation these days. The actor has been starring in MCU films since 2008, so Avengers: Infinity War might give Tony Stark a poignant bow-out next year. After all, Don Cheadle's War Machine is always around to take over until someone like Riri Williams can be cast.prevnext
If any of the main Avengers truly die in Marvel's blockbuster, most would agree Captain Americawill be the man to go. Chris Evans has played Steve Rogers for years now, and his contract with Marvel Studios had to be specially extended for him to star in the next Avengers movies. The actor claims he will take part in the MCU up until Avengers 4, but there is a good chance Captain America's death in Avengers: Infinity War will be what spurs the team into reconciliation following Civil War. The death of Captain America would be a blow to all parties; Even Star-Lord with his extraterrestrial upbringing would have known about Steve before Yondu's crew snatched him. Captain American somehow made it through Civil War unscathed, allowing the MCU time to fully flesh out successor options in the Falcon or the Winter Soldier. Now, all that's left is for Captain America to - well - join Peggy Carter up in the sky.prevnext
