What can we expect from ‘Avengers 4’?
Avengers: Infinity war has been a massive hit at the box office. The movie has many superheroes in it including Spider-Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Iron Man, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy and many more who fight against the evil Thanos.
At the end, they lost when they failed to stop him from procuring all six infinity stones, and Thanos managed to turn half of the universe’s population to dust in an instant including many Avengers: Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Falcon, Winter Soldier, most of the Guardians of the galaxy and Scarlet witch, leaving the rest of the Avengers stunned in disbelief– Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor. The movie ends there leaving the audience speechless and pumped for the next movie.
Infinity War is a combination of two comic book plots: Jonathan Hickman’s infinity (2013) and Jim Starlin’s Infinity Gauntlet (1991). If Avengers 4 honors these comic books, we can figure out what happens next: although the soul stone turned half of the souls into dust, they are not necessarily gone but faded to Soul World; a universe that apparently exists inside the stone. Adam Warlock, a character in the Marvel comics has the ability to communicate with the stones from Soul World. Meanwhile, Thanos is mourning Gamora’s death and has lost some of his confidence which gives his daughter Nebula an opportunity to defeat him once and for all. Zoe Saldana hinted in an E! Live interview that she has been on Avengers 4 set which could mean that it’s not the end of Gamora after all.
However, in a Buzzfeed interview the screenwriters, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus made it very clear that the characters who disappeared are in fact dead: “[Avengers 4] doesn’t do what you think it does … [the deaths are] real. I just want to tell you it’s real.” Which means that Avengers 4 could possibly have a very different, unpredictable ending in comparison to the comic books. Feige, in a Vanity Fair cover story, suggested that Avengers 4 will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
