If you remember the end of Avengers Infinity War, oops what am I saying who can forget that dreadful end where Thanos emerged victoriously and turned most of our heroes into dust. However, if you notice one thing that the Avengers who were left to live with the emotional burden of their fallen comrades were the original bunch. The genocidal snap of Thanos turned Spiderman, Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy to dust who all are the new entrants in the universe. This raised a question amongst many fans that why the original Avengers were spared, Is this some kind of coincidence or MCU has a higher plan behind this. Finally, the creator of MCU, Kevin Feige has answered this very question.
Kevin Feige admitted that it is no coincidence and things are planned to happen this way. During his recent interview io9 he touched upon the topic of deaths in Avengers Infinity War and presented a thought process that is leading to something epic in Avengers 4 as he said “I think for a film series that is going on 10 years and is gearing towards a conclusion with Avengers 4, which you don’t usually have in these kind of movies, you can sort of do the math. And realise it’s the original Avengers that are left.”
The Marvel’s plan of keeping the original Avengers alive who laid down the foundation of enormous universe is quite intriguing and befitting as with Phase 3 coming to an end, the fans will be able to pay homage to the superheroes Iron Man, Captain America. At this point, it is clear that Avengers 4 will majorly focus on the original bunch and will mark the end of one of the fantastic chapter in Marvel’s history.
This also confirms that Avengers 4 will be an entirely emotional ride as the audience will bid adieu to the characters whom they have cherished for more than 10 years. The characters like Captain America, Iron Man all became part of our lives, and it will be difficult to say goodbye. However, Marvel’s decision to focus on these characters for the last movie is entirely appropriate as they will pass on the baton to new heroes as they will take charge to protect the universe.
The heroes who were decimated will surely return from the dead and once again face Thanos. It will be interesting to see how directors Joe and Anthony Russo bring this somewhat emotional event in MCU’s history to life when new heroes will take charge. After the backlash of the bold ending of Infinity War, we only wish that original Avengers get a farewell they deserve and again leave us with tears in our eyes and smile for the beginning of new era in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
