Which Avenger Survives Infinity War

For years, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been speculating about which of their on-screen heroes will survive the upcoming battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and which ones will bite the dust once and for all. The follow-up movie, Avengers 4, has already begun filming, but that movie’s title supposedly isn’t being released until Infinity War comes out because it’s a spoiler for what happens in its predecessor.

But now, thanks to a new interview, there’s one surprising Avenger who sounds as if he or she will survive Infinity War and make it to the battlefield in Avengers 4. I’ve carefully avoided even vaguely hinting at who this person might be thus far, but I’ll warn you now: there are possible spoilers below.

Nick Fury in Avengers Infinity War

Without Nick Fury, there would have been no assembly of The Avengers. In a credits scene after Iron Man hit theaters in 2008, Samuel L. Jackson appears in Tony Stark’s mansion to chastise his cockiness and talk to him about something called The Avengers Initiative. After that came four more movies leading up to the debut of Marvel’s superhero team on the big screen and an entire cinematic universe that is still growing. But it appears Nick Fury isn’t as important to the future of the MCU as he was in the beginning.

Samuel L. Jackson recently sat down for an interview to promote the upcoming release of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which hits theaters this weekend, and he revealed that he wasn’t asked to make an appearance in either Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War. Find out what the actor had to say about the lack of Nick Fury in Avengers Infinity War and more below. Read More »

Infinity War Script

Marvel Studios is notoriously secretive when it comes to their big screen endeavors, and when it comes to the next assembly of The Avengers, they’re not even trusting the cast members who play Earth’s mightiest heroes to keep their mouths shut.

Avengers: Infinity War is done shooting and production on Avengers 4 is underway. We’ve already gotten a taste of what The Avenger sequel will bring to the table next summer with the footage that played at both The D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, but when it comes to hearing new details about the movie, we may not be able to rely on the cast members to accidentally spill secrets as often as they did before. That’s because directors Anthony & Joe Russo didn’t give their cast the entire Infinity War script and only provided them with the relevant pages and information they needed to effectively deliver the best performance.

Avengers Infinity War - Spider-Man - Iron Spider Suit

Now that Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he’s not forced to fight against any of The Avengers as part of that whole Civil War thing, fans are excited to see what it’s like to have him fight alongside all of the Marvel heroes as they face their greatest challenge yet: the mad titan Thanos.

During San Diego Comic-Con (and D23 Expo), some Avengers: Infinity War footage showed Spider-Man struggling a bit as he joins a fight that’s bigger and more dangerous than anything he’s faced before. Plus, a concept art poster showed the webslinger swinging through part of a triptych image of all the superheroes assembling to battle Thanos. Now, a high-resolution image of the new suit that Spidey will be wearing has emerged online. However, beware that below the image there will have some Spider-Man: Homecoming spoilers accompanying it.

captain marvel not in avengers

Looks like fans of Carol Danvers will have to wait a few more years before they get to see Brie Larson don the red, blue, and gold suit.

Captain Marvel won’t appear in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, co-director Joe Russo confirmed. So it likely won’t be until March 2019 when we see Captain Marvel in all her glory in her anticipated solo debut. And maybe in Avengers 4 a few months later.

avengers infinity war run time

Avengers: Infinity War will be bigger than anything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen. Bigger stakes, bigger fights, and bigger drama. That much is clear by its Comic-Con three-part poster, which is chock full of superheroes and a lot of saturation.

And director Joe Russo, who is helming Avengers: Infinity War alongside his Captain America: Civil War co-director and brother Anthony Russo, hints that it may be the longest MCU movie as well.

marvel comic con posters

Us plebeians may not have gotten the chance to see the buzzy Avengers: Infinity War footage gifted upon Hall H-ers at San Diego Comic-Con and Mouseketeers at the D23 Expo, but we can make up for it by staring at the newly released Infinity War three-part poster for 10 minutes.

The three-part poster was revealed at Comic-Con on Sunday and gives us our first look at the meet-up between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as the foe they face. Not to be overshadowed is the first Ant-Man and The Wasp poster, also revealed at Comic-Con. Michelle Pfeiffer is going to be in that movie, everyone!

Joe Russo on Thanos in Infinity War and His Henchmen

You can’t talk about Avengers: Infinity Warand its exciting, exclusive first footage shown to the folks at the D23 Expo and this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con — without going into its Big Bad, Thanos.

The purple galactic warlord has sown death and destruction across the universe, though, apart from a brief role in Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s been mostly offscreen. Now in the third Avengers movie and the 19th Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Thanos will finally get his time in the spotlight. And aided by his bejeweled Infinity Gauntlet, he’s going to look oh so shiny.

The Avengers Infinity War footage

Note: The Avengers: Infinity War footage that played at Comic-Con (and brought down the house) was the same footage that we previously saw at D23. Because of that, we are bumping our old post, just in case you missed it the first time. In Hall H, in front of a crowd of 7,000 eager fans, this footage killed. We have also added additional details that we noticed on this second viewing.

The original post follows. Just mentally replace “D23” with “Comic-Con.”

As expected, the live-action films panel at the the 2017 D23 expo concluded with a first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
