Superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, the still unnamed Avengers 4, are promising a sort of end for the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told Vanity Fair Avengers 4 will bring a “finale” to the shared universe launched with 2008’s Iron Man, explaining the sequel will serve as the point of demarcation for “two distinct periods” in the MCU: “Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after,” Feige said, adding it will “not be in ways people are expecting.”
Feige later told Entertainment Weekly dead characters will stay dead, which could potentially include “the big ones.”
Marvel Studios has refrained from revealing much about their projects planned for 2020, 2021 and 2022 following Avengers 4 in 2019, but we know the studio has Captain Marvel and sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther in the works.
The following list doesn’t mean we expect all these characters will die — they’re just the ones who have a higher probability of biting the dust than their superhero colleagues.
Synthetic android the Vision is in possession of the Mind Stone — which just so happens to be one of the six massively powerful Infinity Stones highly coveted by Thanos, an alien warlord who comes to Earth to finally assemble the Stones and wield the power of a god.
Vision can be seen screaming in the first Infinity War trailer, and the latest trailer also hints at bad things to come for the robo-Avenger — suggesting the hero’s status as a prime target for Thanos and his villainous Black Order means he won’t be making it out of Infinity War alive.
Captain America star Chris Evans said the arrival of the purple-skinned Mad Titan is the Avengers’ worst fears coming to reality, with Infinity War showing “the worst case scenario when you find out all the potential of someone trying to destroy your planet.”
The latest Infinity War trailer also hints at a potentially doomed Loki, the usually traitorous half-brother of Thor, who in Thor: Ragnarok proved there is good in him after all.
The trickster demigod also swiped the Tesseract, which contains the Space Stone — which just so happens to be one of the Stones Thanos comes to possess.
Loki can be seen surrounded by Thanos’ children — Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw, Corvus Glaive and Cull Obsidian — likely under threat of surrendering the Space Stone or watching Thor die. (The Asgardian Avenger can be seen in Thanos’ grip, literally, unleashing a terrible scream.)
We’ve seen little of Loki outside this location, and he was warned of Thanos’ vengeance as far back as The Avengers in 2012. If Thanos confronts his old lackey over his early failure, even the wily Loki might not be able to get himself out of this one.
Nebula, Thanos’ adopted daughter, is out…
