Avengers: Infinity War had a lot of expectations. For years Marvel Studios had been building up a complex, interconnected field of movies that were all leading to one epic showdown; our heroes facing Thanos. Infinity War easily could’ve been an underwhelming experience and instead it met nearly all my expectations. Thanos was actually worth the six year wait, we got to see some great team ups between characters that otherwise would’ve probably never met, and we got an intense two and a half hour story that led to one of the most shocking cliffhangers that I’ve ever seen. Infinity War was so good it has raised a nearly impossible bar to surpass, financially wise and storywise, and yet it’s already been said from the cast and directors that the next film is going to wow us in even more unexpected ways. *chuckling* Really? Avengers 4 is going to be more surprising than Infinity War? Uh-oh, I’m nervous. But besides the shock factors what other elements will the movie need to surpass its predecessor. Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
