Avengers: Infinity War left a lasting impact on all MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans who were left gutted after a heartbreaking end. Thanos not only accumulated all the six Infinity Stones but also wiped out half the universe, thus killing some beloved superheroes like Spider-Man and Black Panther. Now, according to one recent fan theory, everyone will eventually make their return in Avengers: Endgame, but their return will come at a tremendous cost. This fan theory suggests that the unexpected may happen.
We do know by now that Avengers: Endgame is the last installment of the Avengers franchise and thus fans have been preparing themselves for unexpected twists in the film. As per this fan theory, the new Avengers will return only after the original Avengers — including Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye — sacrifice their lives so that they can return.
The theory further elaborates that the original Avengers might have to “link up” as the Guardians did in Guardians of the Galaxy, to take upon the force of the Infinity Stones as they work towards defeating Thanos. In return, the stones would consume them and restore order to the world.
Earlier reports have also confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will indeed bring an end to Robert Downey Jr’s character Tony Stark as his contract comes to an end. Chris Evans had also hinted that he will be giving up his beloved shield.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame is expected to star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin and Chris Pratt.
Fans will get to see if the heroes can tip the scales back in their favor when Avengers: Endgamepremieres in theaters on April 26th.
