The Dead Heroes In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Actually May Not Return in ‘Avengers 4’

Avengers: Infinity War is the highest grossing film of the year so far and just recently joined an exclusive movie club as it has become the fourth film in cinema history to surpass $2 billion dollars. And that’s not a surprising fact. Avengers: Infinity War was a film eighteen previous movies had been building to and it delivered on almost every level of sheer enjoyment that we expected from a film that was supposedly the culmination of ten years of work. The only criticism the movie managed to garner from both critics and casual moviegoers was that the tragic ending of the film, as shocking as it may be, was destined to be reversed. I mean, Marvel wouldn’t possibly dare to kill off some of their biggest players…would they? In a recent interview from the Russo Brothers they might’ve just confirmed the unthinkable as they have stated that we should take the deaths of those disintegrated by Thanos’s infamous finger snap seriously. Here’s a following quote from them.

“I think it’s important to remember anything is possible in the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe]. Just because there’s a sequel on the books doesn’t mean… people become accustomed to time moving linearly in the MCU. That doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. There’s a lot of very inventive ways of where the story can go from here.”

So basically they are kind of hinting at the idea that both Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and the Black Panther sequel are actually prequels that happen prior to Avengers: Infinity War, which actually makes a lot of sense if you think about the time frame both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther sat in. Each film’s story happened shortly thereafter Captain America: Civil War and so that means nearly two years went by before the galactic ending events of Infinity War. It makes sense that both Spider-Man and King T’Challa would have more adventures within that large stretch of time.

A Spoiler-Free Review of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

It’s been one day since I’ve seen Avengers: Infinity War and I’m still reeling from the movie’s climactic ending. Of course, I can’t tell you what happens and you should DEFINITELY avoid spoilers but I can say this…you won’t see it coming and it’s legitimately stunning. Now let me tell you about the rest of the movie (spoiler-free) before I delve into massive spoiler territory. Enjoy!

The Movie

As soon as you see the Marvel Studios graphic at the beginning of the movie you completely understand that this isn’t going to be your typical Marvel film. The film begins darkly with a terrible and terrifying scene that had me nearly shedding tears and the movie truly doesn’t let go thereafter. Situations become more dire as the movie progresses, characters are faced with foes that prove to be very formidable, character relationships are pushed to the test, and the stakes for humanity are raised to the max.

Now is this film incredibly dire throughout? No and yes. There is quite a bit of a humor in the movie which is actually rather surprising. In fact, it’s the funniest Marvel movie, in my opinion, to date. I have never laughed so hard at a superhero movie but don’t let this make you concoct a picture that this movie is light because it isn’t. It’s funny when it needs to be funny but it’s dark when it needs to be dark as well. And let me tell you, the ending of this film is anything but funny.
