12 Theories About Who Might Kick The Bucket In 'Avengers: Infinity War' That Have Us Worried

Diply 17 Apr 2018

While we're all getting amped up for Avengers: Infinity War to drop, we may have forgotten that this massive film could end in bloodshed for some of our favorite characters.

We're not yet sure just who might not make it 'til the end, but there are some theories floating around that have us fairly concerned.

1. Captain America

A lot of people have been speculating that Cap eats it in Infinity War, mostly based off the fact that Chris Evans stated that he "has no plans to return to the franchise" once his contract is up after the fourth Avengers film.

Also, the scene where he's facing off with Thanos in the trailer does not look promising at all.

2. Vision

This one makes total sense since we know Thanos is after all of the Infinity Stones, and Vision has one implanted into his head. Not to mention the trailer showing what appears to be someone attempting to remove said stone.

Great. Just as we were shipping him and Scarlet Witch.

3. Hawkeye

The promo material for Infinity Waris a Where's Waldo?for Hawkeye, so people are wondering what role he'll play in the film, while others are going straight to dead Clint theories.Some theorize that he will indeed die but that Scarlet Witch will resurrect him as Ronin, a martial arts expert who also happens to be one of Marvel's greatest fighters.

That is, if Hawkeye even shows up.

This would be the ultimate burn to Jeremy Renner's character.

First, he was brainwashed in The Avengers, and now we're about to spit on his grave. Let's give some snaps for Hawkeye. He tries so hard.

4. Heimdall

Not only has Idris Elba made it clear that he's not a fan of appearing in the Thormovies (awks), but people believe that he possesses the Soul Stone, the sixth Infinity Stone that we have yet to see.Since Thanos is bent on rounding up all the stones, he could realistically kill Heimdall, take the stone, and free Idris Elba from his misery.

5. M'Baku

Based on the trailer, it seems like Wakanda is about to have a showdown on their own turf, so this means not everyone can survive, right?

There's no way T'Challa is going anywhere, and if Shuri dies, we will burn Marvel to the ground. So, unfortunately, we might have to say goodbye to this character we've come to know and love.

6. Okoye

If this theory that a Wakandan has to meet their maker does pan out, then another alternative would be the leader of the Dora Milaje, Okoye. She's a brave warrior ready to defend the throne to the death.

There wouldn't be a dry eye in the house if that goes down — I promise you that.

7. The Collector

At the end of Thor: The Dark World, he was given the Reality Stone for safekeeping.

We can only imagine that Thanos will come a-knockin' on the Collector's door, and he will not make it out alive.

8. Nebula

Nebula was always a disappointment in Thanos' eyes, and this does not sit well with her. She even admitted that she would hunt down her father and tear him apart piece by piece.

Her fiery vengeance might actually do her in as she attempts to take on Thanos.

9. Iron Man

RedditorJung_Wheats theorizes that the trailer revealed Tony's death by showing him being punched by Thanos.He says, "People expect a big sacrificial death, but I think it'd be more unexpected and impactful if he got killed quickly, without a lot of fanfare." Yikes.

10. Spider-Man

The youngest of the Avengers might not make it to graduation, according to one theory, which claims he will die while facing off with Thanos along with the Guardians on another planet.

Many believe that the reason Tony is fighting off tears in the clip from the first trailer is because he just watched little Peter Parker die.

However, the theory goes onto state that Doctor Strange will reset time using the Time Stone, allowing the team to better prepare themselves for the fight, which is why Spider-Man appears in the trailer wearing the Iron Spider suit.

11. Loki

Get your tissues ready for this one. Redditor Middle-Man-Mindset proposes that Loki and Thor will be attacked by The Black Order, Thanos' gang of thugs, and when they're surrounded, Thanos will show up.

Middle-Man-Mindset believes, "He grabs Thor by the head and threatens Loki to give up the Infinity stone or he will kill Thor." Loki will do so to spare his brother but that's when things get tragic.

After Thanos has the tesseract, he'll break all of our hearts by killing Loki. Middle-Man-Mindset states, "That's when he turns Thor's head. So he can witness his own brother's death."

This could also explain why he's so crusty towards the Guardians of the Galaxy when he meets them for the first time.

12. Thor

Redditor Marwin1902 thinks that after Loki dies in front of Thor, he will meet up with the Guardians and go with Rocket and Groot to forge a new weapon. "With his new weapon," Marwin1902 suggests, "Thor will face Thanos and will sacrifice himself to save the world because he has nothing to fear for."

Okay, if Loki and Thor die in this movie, I am flipping a table. You heard it here first.

I am going to cry a river of tears if this actually goes down, and I won't care who sees me.
