Avengers Endgame: Who will survive? Posted On 03 April 2019

Avengers

This April, the biggest ensemble superhero film ever made, Avengers: Endgame, will bring to a close a story eleven years in the making, and is set to reveal the fates of the much-loved superheroes

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has ruled the box office every year since its first film in 2008. It features 20 films and has grossed over $15 billion dollars worldwide, making it the most successful movie franchise ever!

Along the way they have introduced heroes such as Black Panther, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside regulars such as Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor and the Hulk.

Avengers: Endgame is the second part of the ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ storyline, taken from the comics, and will bring phase three to a close. Here is a recap of the events from Avengers Infinity War: part one.

Floating through space, after escaping the destruction of Asgard, Thor, Loki and The Hulk are attacked by Thanos, the last Titan. He is looking to complete ‘The Infinity Avengers Endgame: Who will survive? Gauntlet’, the most powerful weapon in the universe. He needs six Infinity Stones that give the gauntlet its power, which have been lost for thousands of years. Loki is killed, The Hulk is transported to Earth and Thor escapes with his life.

Thor gets rescued by the Guardians of the Galaxy and goes on a mission to create his own weapon. Meanwhile, Iron Man and SpiderMan try to rescue Doctor Strange, who is the protector of one of the Infinity Stones. And, on Earth, Captain America prepares for war in Wakanda with Black Panther. The Guardians of the Galaxy, SpiderMan, Strange and Iron Man set a trap for Thanos on his homeworld, Titan. They nearly succeed, only for Thanos to transport himself to Earth, where he gets the final stone and completes the gauntlet. And, with a snap of his fingers, he wipes out half the universe.

Avengers Endgame will pick up the story in the aftermath of ‘the snap’. A long list of superheroes were turned to dust including Black Panther, Spider-Man, Groot, StarLord and Doctor Strange. The remaining Avengers are in mourning and look to undo ‘the snap’. So, what do we know about Endgame so far Doctor Strange may be dust but he had seen the future; he saved Iron Man in trade for the final Infinity Stone. But, why was it more important to save Iron Man than half of the universe? Time travel is expected to play a big part, as is the Quantum realm first seen in Ant-Man. The battle of New York from the first Avengers film is expected to be revisited by our time travelling heroes. One key Avenger is expected to die. And, what part will Captain Marvel play?

With sequels for Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and Black Panther already announced, all we know for certain is that if you’re an Avenger, there is life after death. Avengers Endgame will be released on 26th April this year.
