If Avengers Infinity rocked your world this weekend then you probably left the theater with tear stained cheeks and a ton of questions!
This post will answer your most burning inquiries but be warned, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, there are a lot of spoilers ahead! (Seriously, I’ll be talking about EVERYTHING major that happened in the film!)
Okay, so the movie ends and you wait for the post credit scene…. everything makes sense until you see a pager looking device with an unfamiliar logo on it…
Post Credit Scene – What did it mean?
Nick Fury was able to send one final message out before disintegrating. But who did he send it to? That symbol we saw flash on his pager was an an abstract version of the insignia of … Captain Marvel!
Captain Marvel has yet to pop up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but she’s got a dedicated movie coming out in March 2019. It’s a prequel set in the 1990s, focusing on how Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) gained superpowers after an accident that compromises her DNA by merging it with an alien’s.
Let’s hope she has enough alien DNA in her to destroy Thanos or at least sway the odds heavily in the Avengers favor.
Who disintegrated? (Keeping track was hard, it felt like everyone disappeared into oblivion!)
Here’s a list of everyone we lost after Thanos snapped his fingers.
- Black Panther
- Winter Soldier
- Scarlet Witch
- Star Lord
- Doctor Strange
- Nick Fury (post-credits)
- Maria Hill (post-credits)
- 50% of the universe’s population
We also said goodbye to Gamora and Loki earlier on in the film.
- Captain America
- Iron Man
- War Machine
- Black Widow
- 50% of the universe’s population
Gamora is probably gone for good, here’s why:
Honestly, I expected Gamora to make a come back. She’s a main character and umm… she’s in love with Star Lord! They never got a chance to live happily ever after! (no green babies?!)
Here’s the interview that’s leading everyone to believe that Gamora is gone FOREVER:
*Theory: there’s a theory making its way around the internet that Gamora may be trapped in the Soul Stone and the destruction of the stone would set her free. I want to believe this but I’m not sold, are you?
Was this all part of Doctor Strange’s plan?
There is hope!
I’m a strong believer in the theory that Doctor Strange knew all of this would happen! He used the Time Stone to explore millions of outcomes and he knew there was only 1 way they could succeed. There’s no way he would have lead the universe down a path destined to fail.
Giving up the stone to save Stark was likely the only way to destroy Thanos. It may have come at a price, like half the universe disintegrating, but I imagine Doctor Strange would be willing to lose the battle to win the war.
When will the next movie be out?
How long are they going to leave us hanging?!
Looks like we’ll be sitting on the edge of our seats until May 3, 2019! The next film, which doesn’t have an official title yet, is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. They shot it back to back with Infinity War.
