WARNING! The theories discussed in this article contain spoilers from the first three Avengers movies, including “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Left on possibly the biggest cliffhanger in all of Marvel Studios’ cinematic history, “Avengers: Infinity War” left most in tears and suspense. The untitled sequel to “Infinity War”, currently dubbed by the community of Marvel fans as “Avengers 4”, debuts in the U.S. on April 26th, 2019.
“Infinity War” and “Avengers 4” represent the two part finale of this period of Marvel heroes. The first of the two movies was the fastest movie to earn 1 billion dollars worldwide, and overall earned 642.8 million dollars after being out in the public for only 36 days, according to Forbes.com.
Theories and information leaks are spiraling around among Marvel fans, and Loy Norrix students have many ideas about what they think is going to occur in the finale of the Avengers franchise.
Q: What do you think is going to happen in “Avengers 4”? Any theories?
Graham Lape-Shoub, junior
A: “It’s either going to involve some weird time travel by Tony [Tony Stark, or Iron Man], or they’re going to show all the characters who were dusted attempting to escape the soul stone like Adam Warlock did in the original comics. Adam Warlock was the golden boy who was in the after-credits scene of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.’”
Eleanor Neve-Jones, sophomore
A: “I don’t really know. I’ve been reading quite a lot of the theories online, and I have a couple of favorites, but I don’t think that they’re actually going to happen. I’m almost sure it will have something to do with the Time Stone. [One of the five Infinity Stones, which are magical rocks that control one aspect of the universe. The Reality Stone, Power Stone, Mind Stone, and Soul Stone accompany the Time Stone.] I think that maybe they will all go back in time to collect all of the stones before Thanos [an evil overlord bent on destroying half of the universe] is able to get to them. Then maybe defeating him using the stones, therefore saving everything and preventing almost everything that happened in Infinity War, including all of the deaths. So maybe Loki will still be alive.”
Naquayvion Woody, sophomore
A: “I think it’s going to involve time travel, and maybe Tony Stark has a machine, or makes one, to change the events in Infinity War.”
Eliana Rubin, sophomore
A: “I think that Doctor Strange didn’t die, and he did something in the past or future that will help the Avengers win.”
Nailah Blanks, junior
A: “I think that everyone will come back to life but the main Avengers might sacrifice themselves to bring back those dead characters. I also believe that everyone that was dusted is actually in the Soul Stone and the only person/stone that can bring them out would be Captain Marvel [a space heroine from the 1980’s that is in contact with Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D, the Avengers headquarters] or the Time Stone. Loki is not dead!”
Kathrine Gilbert, junior
A: “They’re all in the Soul Stone, and either Thanos will bring them back because he feels bad, or somebody will steal the Gauntlet back and bring everybody back.”
Joseph Ridenour, junior
A: “Nobody’s actually dead; they’re all in an alternate dimension and think everybody else is dead. The new Spiderman movie is coming out, and “Far From Home” might mean that he’s still on Earth but just in another reality.”
