Avengers 4 is still a year or so away, and many of us fans have a ton of questions regarding the story that we won’t get answered until then. One of the many questions revolves around the idea of the “dead” characters. Avengers: Infinity War saw Thanos snapping his fingers and like that, a good chunk of the Avengers disintegrated into dust, including the likes of Black Panther, Star-Lord, and Spider-I-Don’t-Feel-So-Good-Mr.-Stark-Man.

Readers of the comics know that there is a precedent for this kind of stuff happening, and even non-readers of the comics know that pretty much everyone is fair game to come back, right? Like many, I assume that, while those who we saw turn to dust are “dead” now, that won’t be their final fate. I believe they will all come back, and from that battle, some may live and some may die — we’ll see.

But if we all know they’re coming back, does that mean we’ll be seeing them in the trailer? The outlet io9 recently asked if characters like Black Panther would be showing up in the trailer, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige answered, “No, because he’s gone.”

Uh-huh. Yeah, sure, Mr. Feige. We buy that as much as we bought Superman’s death at the end of Batman v Superman. That being said, I do love that despite common sense dictating the return of most of these characters, Feige and co. still have their cards close to their chests. They are trying their best to keep the spirit of the medium intact by avoiding spoilers, but we all know better.

Do you think they’re all really gone? Let us know your thoughts down below!
