It’s already destined for Avengers: Infinity War to be the first Marvel film that has actual major casualties in it and this synopsis tells as much. Here it is.
“An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their super hero allies must willing to sacrifice it all in an attempt to defeat the power of Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.”
So, it’s official. Some of our favorite heroes are finally going to find their demise in this film but the question is…who?
I’m trying to stay away from as many potential spoilers as possible but with Avengers 4 wrapping filming just a few days ago it’s been kind of difficult avoiding any topics from the fourth Avengers film.
I’m glad to see that we’re finally getting a Marvel movie that’s willing to kill off some of its main heroes because that’s been a constant complaint about these movies. Take Captain America: Civil War for example. It was playing out to be one of the more dire films in the nonstop franchise and while it did provide the most shocking reveal in the MCU there weren’t any high stakes. When the heroes fought each other on the airport tarmac it wasn’t a hugely suspenseful showdown because at the end of the day no one even died. It ended up being much more underwhelming than I would’ve imagined and didn’t exactly bring anything exciting to the movie except us getting to see all of these heroes in one place fighting each other.
Avengers: Infinity War doesn’t look like it’s going to repeat that mistake and I’m legitimately terrified. This might be the first Marvel film that I walk away from with a tear-stained face, depending on who dies. For example, if Black Widow or Captain America (especially Captain America) perishes I just might shed a tear or two. We’ll see what happens in four months.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
