Avengers: Infinity War was a very innovative film in a lot of ways, from how it was filmed in collaboration with IMAX to the secrecy surrounding it with the cast and scripts. But easily the most distinctive point the movie was able to drive home was that great things take a lot of time and planning. Infinity War was just a reflection of the last 10 years of hard work and brilliant storytelling wrapped into one beautiful package.
Many were surprised to see the film end on a note that depicted Earth’s Mightiest Heroes suffering a crippling defeat at the hands of Thanos. Watching beloved characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Groot, and others fade away into dust was a difficult movie moment for most to stomach, but it is certainly something that Doctor Strange saw coming.
The Sorcerer Supreme was able to view 14,000,605 possible future outcomes of the Infinity War with Thanos and the Black Order. Unfortunately, only one resulted in Earth prevailing. Strange even made a point to tell Iron Man that they were in the “end game.” So it’s possible that everything that happened after that moment until next year’s Avengers 4 is within the scenario that favors the home team.
Only time will tell, but many speculate that there will be a resurgence in heroes coming back to the land of the living to refill Marvel’s hero ranks for future movies to come. That could, however, mean the end for Thanos, although he has become a bit of the villain you love to hate or hate to love. He’s got a certain charm and gravity to him that’s much different than any other “bad guy” presented before in the MCU.
We’ll undoubtedly get another look at the Mad Titan in the untitled Avengers 4 next year, just after Captain Marvel. In anticipation for more news surrounding the project, the Internet has been quite full of true believers trying to crack the code for what’s to come and even creating a bunch of fan art, or in this case, teaser trailers for the next Avengers film. Although it isn’t the official title, you’ve got to admit Endgame has a nice ring to it, right?
