‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is setting up this classic Stan Lee and Jack Kirby cover

We have a good idea of why we get this specific Avengers lineup at the end of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’.


SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.


If you’ve had the chance to see Avengers: Infinity War you’ve one of two minds based on whether or not you’ve read the comics or been a movie watcher alone. I say this because the ending comes with some major deaths that comic fans may have seen coming, but many won’t. That said, we all know Thanos has all the stones, which means he can mess with time and space so how dead are these heroes really?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

That said, it’s pretty clear why the Russo brothers “killed” off so many heroes. If you do the math you’ll realize the main core of Avengers are still kicking around (including Ant-Man and Wasp) for a very good reason. I give you one of the most iconic Avengers covers ever:

If you’re going to end on a high note why not bring out the big guns? That said if the Russo brothers end up framing a shot like the one above comic book fans are going to lose their minds. Movie fans will too because movie fans have never seen this iconic core of Avengers on the screen together before. Not to mention how incredibly awesome it will be to see Chris Evans in such a pose.

Even if they don’t frame a shot like the cover above it’s rather obvious the directors are streamlining the team so that their last big battle is the original core. And when they eventually reverse what Thanos has done (because we all know Spider-Man and Black Panther are not going to stay dead) expect one hell of a heroic comeback.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now! Read our review and brush up on what is to come with this major leak.

Avengers 4 will be released May 3, 2019 and can’t come soon enough.
