By this point, I question whether or not I need to put disclaimers at the top of this piece. If you haven’t seen it now, chances are you aren’t one to seek out this piece, right? Let me know down in the comments whether or not I should keep putting that disclaimer up top.
Anyways, as we know, not everyone had a happy ending in Avengers: Infinity War. Loki was choked to death, Heimdall was stabbed, Gamora was thrown off a cliff, and countless others were snapped out of existence by Thanos by the very end of the film. As one would expect from a studio like Marvel, they didn’t pick these characters out of a hat, as producer Trinh Tran revealed to ComicBook.com:
“We were meticulous about each of the characters and spent a lot of time discussing how each character’s death would affect future films.”
Makes sense, as these deaths would affect future movies — though I still think the snap won’t affect anything outside of the next Avengers movie. And speaking of snap, that snap was something they were adamant about keeping:
“‘The snap’ was always part of our story discussions from go. We all agreed Thanos needed that iconic moment, and definitely used the comics as a reference point. We had Brolin, in mocap, snap his finger on the day. Many other filmmaking aspects went into creating the iconic moment. The build-up to the snap was just as important as the snap itself.”
You won’t hear any arguing from me. But will it be permanent? If not, how will it be reversed? These are the questions us fans have spent countless hours poring over. What do you think they’ll do to reverse this? Shoot us your theories down below!
