‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Odds: Ranking the Heroes Most Likely to Die
Avengers: Infinity War isn’t just Marvel’s biggest movie to date. It also boasts the franchise’s largest ensemble of heroes assembling to face their most powerful foe yet — a giant purple space jerk named Thanos. His mission: To collect all the Infinity Stones and wipe out half the universe, crushing anyone that gets in his way. That includes, unfortunately, several of our beloved heroes. As we continue on the road to Infinity War, we can’t help but wonder: Who will die, and what will be left of them? More specifically: What are the odds that some of our favorite super-friends will bite it?
Those potential deaths have been confirmed in recent weeks by everyone from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo, and even a few cast members. When you factor in expiring film contracts, it’s easier to speculate about which characters probably won’t be making it out of Infinity War alive. Instead of ranking every hero from most to least likely to die (there are just too many), we’ve calculated the odds and chosen the 10 characters with the highest risk of being destroyed by Josh Brolin’s Thanos.
And no, Hawkeye isn’t on this list. Marvel’s decision to keep Jeremy Renner out of every Infinity War promo just smacks of misdirection. Killing everyone’s favorite Hawkguy off after hiding him for months feels too obvious.
