Avengers: Infinity War is going to be a bloodbath. The directors and producer for the film have been teasing this for a long time. It’s the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and likely one of the first that will actually kill off at least one beloved hero. Who will be the one to go? Will it be Captain America, who has gotten increasingly jaded as time has gone on? Will it be Iron Man, whose previous carelessness has led to a more serious and responsible hero?

My personal bet is that all the heroes will meet their makers in this film, and that some of them will make it back in the time travel film Avengers 4 (none of that is confirmed, but I feel confident enough to say it). But I’m not working on a Marvel film, so my best guesses really don’t matter, do they? What about a person who has a bit more skin in the game? Say, Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok?

One fan asked the filmmaker this very question, and his response was very Taika Waititi in nature.

“Lots of background extras.”

Of course! Why didn’t we think of it before? In every Marvel movie, there are tons of background extras, and in a movie that threatens to eliminate half of the universe, it’s inevitable that we’d lose a ton of nameless extras in the process.

Forget about pouring one out for Captain America. We’ll need to empty several bottles for the fallen extras!
