The spontaneous fans went out Avengers: Infinity War We all started to speculate. How did this happen? Is this character really gone? Can these events be reversed?
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, of course, did not answer these questions when talking to io9 this week. But he offered an interesting anecdote about the people who survived Thanos' snapshot at the end of Infinity War .
"I think for a series of films that last 10 years and work toward a degree with Avengers 4 that you do not normally have in such films, you can do math," Feige said to io9. "And of course, it's the original Avengers that are left."
Of course we all realized that Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor and (we assume) Hawkeye are all still alive. But for fig, to invoke this, there is an additional seed of importance. The most obvious explanation for this is how Marvel wanted to tell this story – that the original team rescues the galaxy before it possibly passes the torch. But maybe something bigger is at stake: a cosmic destiny that will hold these characters together and be tested.
Honestly, we do not know and we will not until May next year when Avengers 4 it's been published. But it's fun to think about it.
The MCU continues next week in Ant-Man and the Wasp . We will have more about this movie soon.
