Avengers: Infinity War is just days away. Many fans, including myself, have been waiting years for this ultimate superhero mash-up. Our favorite good guys will be facing off against the biggest bad guy, Thanos. The directors have already stated that some of our heroes won’t be surviving the battle, but who will still be standing once the dust settles? Let’s discuss the fates of some characters below.
Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye has not been in any of the promotional images released for Infinity War. This has led many fans to believe that he is as good as dead, but would they really make it that easy? I think that Hawkeye not being present in the posters is a red herring to lead fans away from the harsh truth in who they really plan on letting go.
Robert Downey Jr. has stated that, as of right now, he’s only confirmed to star in Infinity War. Are they keeping his appearance in the fourth Avengers movie and possibly a fourth Iron Man movie a secret? Or is Tony Stark doomed to fall to Thanos? Iron Man first propelled the Marvel franchise into the spotlight back in 2008 with Iron Man and Tony does have a knack for going all out to satisfy his own ego (remember the first Avengers movie?) I think it’s a high possibility that this will be Tony Stark’s last appearance in the MCU.
It pains me to say this, but I have a deep fear that Cap won’t be making it out alive. We see a bearded Captain America facing off against Thanos. Chris Evans has already told fans that after the fourth Avengers movie he’ll be done playing Captain America. Now, you may be thinking, Evans has confirmed that he will be in Avengers four, so won’t survive Infinity War? I’m afraid I don’t believe he will. I think his appearance in Avengers four will perhaps be a flashback or something else.
Another possibly red herring is Vision. He will definitely have a huge target on, well, his forehead considering the Mind stone is embedded in him and Thanos wants the infinity stones, like, really badly. It makes sense that he would be the first to go, but again, that would be too easy. Perhaps they will find a way for him to survive without the stone. Alternatively, Vision is definitely a goner.
