We are now just under 48 hours away from witnessing Thanos’ arrival in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ – so to help pass some time, the team decided to vote on who they think won’t survive the Mad Titan’s fury.
Remember – we have no clue who bites the dust, and there are no spoilers ahead, just guesswork!
Oh Vision, we hardly knew ye – but the JUMPCUT team don’t like your chances in ‘Infinity War’ thanks to that Mind stone lodged in your forehead (we guess not for long!). We were introduced to Paul Bettany’s Vision in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and he quickly became a fan favourite. It would be a crying shame to lose Vision in the MCU before seeing him take on a bigger role, but the trailers don’t look promising for Vision as we witness the Black Order retrieving the Mind stone from him for Thanos.
War Machine came close to death during the third act of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ after Vision accidentally shot him down – but the team think ‘Infinity War’ might finished of Rhodey once and for all. He now relies on Stark technology to help him walk, but does this affect his performance in the War Machine armour? We haven’t seen much of him in the trailers, other than him charging in to the battle in Wakanda with Cap and Black Widow, but who knows!
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has been a big player in the MCU thus far – going as far as introducing aliens to planet Earth in a bid for power on behalf of the Mad Titan himself. But we feel that Thanos will take his opportunity to get rid of Loki after his invasion of Earth failed in the first ‘Avengers’ film. The trailer did show Loki regained possession of the Tesseract (which we all know holds an infinity stone) before the fall of Asgard in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ – but we don’t think even using that as some sort of bargaining chip will be enough to save him. Sorry, Tom!
As much as it pains us to admit it, ‘Infinity War’ could well be the final time we see Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. Rogers has been through a hell of a lot through his solo trilogy and the ‘Avengers’ films – he’s now S.H.I.E.L.D-less and shieldless and he looks like he’s had a hell of a rough time being on the run following the events of ‘Civil War’. We don’t doubt he won’t go out without a fight, so we’re going to make the most of him whilst we can!
Our journey began 10 years ago with Tony Stark, it would be only fitting for him to exit the MCU during the event that it’s all been leading up to. Tony looks worse for wear in some of the footage in the trailers, despite his fancy new upgrades, which doesn’t bode well for the toll this fight will take on him. We’re damn sure he’s going to give everything he’s got to the fight, and maybe, just maybe, that includes his life.
Those are our guesses – who do you think will suffer at the hands of Thanos?
Oh, and remember – #ThanosDemandsYourSilence!
