We’re almost four months removed from Avengers: Infinity War opening in theaters, and people continue to discuss the events that transpired. It’s no surprise that killing off numerous characters loved by millions would garner so much attention, but for it to be such a hot topic this far removed from the initial shock is a little, well, shocking. It also helps that the film was released on Digital HD less than two weeks ago with the Home DVD and Blu-rays set to hit retailers on Tuesday (Aug. 14th), but the most surprising part of it all is how it’s crossing over from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the mainstream.
The “snappening” (as some are calling it) has become such a sensation that people are creating their own storylines with it. Tumblr user intosnarkness wrote an episode of Sesame Street with Thano’s Snap’s after effects as the plot. While it’s as ridiculous as you would expect, it’s certainly worth the read. Actors who have been part of the MCU but weren’t a part of Infinity War have weighed in on their fate, and one special Marvel property that is currently under Fox has discussed this as well.
Not to be outdone by the team-up that was Infinity War, Deadpool 2 put together their own team to compete. While almost every member of the X-Force met their demise in their first mission, thanks wind, the actors who play the surviving members discussed their fate with HuffPost as if they were part of the MCU. Stefan Kapicic, who plays Colossus, was the first to answer: “Colossus definitely survived.” While we’re all hoping he would, Ryan Reynolds quickly stomped on that hope by saying, “What? Please, you were the first to die. Dishonorably, I might add.”
Dopinder actor Karan Soni leaned on his friendship with Josh Brolin, who played both Cable and Thanos, as his saving grace through the snap, but the only one who everyone is sure would survive was Zazie Beetz’ character Domino. “I could [survive],” she said. “If anybody could, it would be you,” Reynolds concurred, and we do as well. If it’s a flip of the coin whether you survive or not, who has better odds than the luckiest person on the planet?
Deadpool 2 is currently available for purchase on Digital HD and hits retailers on August 21st for physical copies!
