Waiting for a new movie to release is one of the most painful experiences for die-hard fans, and the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer is here to torment us further. Despite having its premiere date moved up to April, the next installment in the MCU is still painfully far away from release. At least we have a new trailer to hold us over in the meantime, even if it does hint at the deaths of some of our favorite characters.
One of the biggest questions fans have been asking since the announcement of Infinity War is who isn’t going to make it to the next movie. While Iron Man is a popular contender for most heart-wrenching death, the showdowns between Thanos, Captain America, and Thor could indicate that none of our fan favorites are safe. Although the fact that Hawkeye hasn’t been on any posters or featured in any trailers has also raised speculation that the arrow-toting superhero won’t survive past this next film.
The Infinity War trailer also seems to heavily feature Wakanda, Black Panther, and Shuri—the focal points of the recently released Black Panther movie. Considering the popularity of this recent release, it was a smart choice by Disney and Marvel execs to feature these new characters so heavily in Infinity War.
While this will certainly be a milestone for the MCU, the franchise has no intentions of slowing down after Infinity War releases. There are already several movies in the works, with even more rumored to be coming down the pipeline.
- Ant-Man and the Wasp (Summer 2018)
- Captain Marvel (Spring 2019)
- Avengers 4 (Summer 2019)
- Spider-Man 2 (Summer 2019)
- Black Widow Movie (Rumored)
These as well as at least 12 other movies between 2020-2022. Sequels (and threequels) to popular series are expected to be announced at later dates, such as Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and Doctor Strange 2.
Regardless of whatever series come next for the MCU, you can be certain that they’ll be blockbuster hits with thousands of fans lining up to see them.
