On May 4th Avengers Infinity War becomes a reality, and for at least 10 years, we have been focusing on those damn infinity gems. Where are they, which one is which, and who currently has them? Also, how prepared will Earth be? Will we see S.W.O.R.D.? How hard core will Thanos be?
My question after Black Panther, however, is not on Thanos or the infinity gems so much, but more on what all of this was about to begin with, for Thanos at least. His number one motivation in the comic? To impress a woman… The Woman. Death herself.
Will the story start off with Thanos killing a bunch of people with the Infinity Gauntlet only for Death to not be impressed? Will Thanos then have to fight for her affection his self? And since this is the woman who basically has the mantle most commonly refereed to as The Grimm Reaper… will that come into play at all?
I’m sorry. I’m beating around the bush. Red Skull is either dead or just M.I.A. since Captain America: The First Avenger. In Avengers, Agent Coulson dies but comes back in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. resurrected. Will either of these characters play a role?
Quicksilver was killed in Avengers: Age of Ultron after he gets spoilers heroically while spoilers spoilers out of the way of the spoilers. I had thought that he was going to return during Thor Ragnarok in Valhalla, but maybe he comes back during this movie, possibly as a bad guy zombie character or something.
Ronan The Accuser from Guardians of The Galaxy? Who cares. I would literally rather see Luke Cage’s wife come back to life than Ronan The Accuser. The Purple Man? More interesting of a character than Ronan… but let’s get real… outside of some cameos here and there… none of the TV characters are showing up…
…unless it’s Agent Peggy Carter. They made it a point to have Peggy pass away during Captain America: Civil War, but before that, Peggy appeared in a vision to Captain America thanks to Scarlet Witch’s… hex… powers? Seriously… I have no idea what Scarlet Witch can do in this universe. Telekinesis and telepathy? Anyways, that happened in Age of Ultron when everyone was having plot points revealed to them as hallucinations.
Maybe Hella will come back. She is the goddess of death, while not death herself, right?
In that next big movie, Civil War, Tony Stark had to deal with the fact that Bucky, as The Winter Soldier, murderd Tony’s mother and father on the side of the road.
Will Cap see a vision of Peggy? Scarlet Witch see her brother Quicksilver? Tony see his mother and father? Will Bucky be haunted by them and his other victims from his Winter Soldier days? Will Drax see his wife again? Star Lord his mother? Most importantly though, will T’challa see his spoilers again? Will he have to fight spoilers all over again?
For a movie universe that supposedly doesn’t kill a lot of people, there certainly has been a little bit of a toll recently.. and…
oh my god!
DID THEY LEAVE OUT UNCLE BEN IN SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING SO HE CAN BE IN AVENGERS INFINITY WAR?!?!?
*gasps for air*
Or, you know… whatever.
I just hope that Marvel does not just push aside Death. She is a strong independent woman who needs no Thanos and she deserves to be seen, felt, and above all else… feared.
