Note: Contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
So Avengers: Infinity War ends in that manner.
You know, with half of your favorite heroes turning to ash and blowing away. While Gamora, Loki and Heimdall met their fates in any other case, we absolutely count on the victims of the Infinity Snap to return in Avengers: Endgame someway or different (and perhaps Loki too).
But it will be a bit low cost if, after all of the drama of Infinity War, our heroes walked away utterly unscathed from its untitled sequel. Heads actually need to roll to take care of the tone of the primary film.
But Iron Man apart (sorry, Tony), there are some characters who’re undoubtedly going to outlive within the MCU’s Phase Four.
1. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)
After lastly placing the long-awaited Black Widow solo film into growth, there’s simply no manner they are going to kill her off now. Her pre-Avengers life wasn’t very blissful so far as we have gathered (keep in mind the Red Room and the “red in her ledger”?), and a bleak, flashback memorial to a useless character would not really feel very Marvel.
2. Spider-Man (Tom Holland)
As a lot as we would like to see the opposite Spider-Man, Miles Morales, on the massive display screen within the MCU, there is not any doubt that Peter Parker can be alive for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel – which we’re instructed is about instantly after Endgame anyway. And there is not any manner Sony goes to announce a fourth new Spider-Man so quickly after we met the (extraordinarily common) third.
3. Drax (Dave Bautista)
Disney could be having phrases with Mr Bautista, as he is already spilled the beans about being again not just for Avengers 4 but in addition Phase Four’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, now with the newly re-hired James Gunn formally again on board.
4. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt)
Some folks may want that Star-Lord could be shuffled off this mortal coil after his misbehaviour in Infinity War, however even after turning to mud, we’re certain he’ll be sticking round. James Gunn has stated that his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy tells “one story”, and because the ostensible lead of the primary two movies, they cannot actually full the narrative with out him.
5. Rocket (Sean Gunn/Bradley Cooper)
Everyone’s favorite CGI snarkster is principally the one surviving member of the core Guardians staff after Thanos eradicated half the inhabitants of the universe. And once more, Gunn promised that we are going to study extra about Rocket’s “horrible” origin sooner or later, so until Avengers 4 takes a very surprising detour into his previous – and let’s face it, with a solid that huge, there simply is not the time – he’ll be sticking round for some time but.
6. Groot (Vin Diesel)
Groot is principally unkillable at this level (so long as you keep away from getting too far into the weeds about his recollections), so so long as he comes again from the Snap, there’s not a lot anybody can do – or would need to do – about his continued presence within the movies.
7. Captain Marvel (Brie Larson)
11 years after Iron Man first stomped throughout our display screen, Marvel Studios have introduced us their first female-fronted solo film. Touting her as probably the most highly effective hero within the MCU and hinting that she would be the saviour of Avengers 4, if Disney kills her off there can be riots.
8. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman)
Along with Spider-Man, the ‘loss of life’ of T’Challa in Infinity War satisfied us that these misplaced heroes could be again….
