All good things must come to an end. In this case, that old adage is referring to one or more of our beloved Avengers, the world's most popular team of superheroes. On April 27, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War will hit the movie theaters, signaling the end of a journey which began with Iron Man way back in 2008. Many fans suspect that Thanos, the big bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is going to kill at least one Avenger in his quest to unite the infinity stones and take control of the universe.
The production team has confirmed audiences will deal with some hard truths. Screenwriter Stephen McFeely said:
It’s safe to say we will say farewell to people.
Oof. Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, also added to speculation:
The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us, in large part because you don’t see it that often in this particular genre.
