Avengers: Infinity War is still underway, and it stays to be seen when the primary footage will be revealed. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has prodded that not many of your most loved Marvel heroes will live to see Avengers 4. During the promotion of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which releases on 7th July, Kevin Feige was asked whether there will be any MCU heroes that will be murdered off in Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to release on May 4, 2018. This is what the maker and studio head stated;
“Yes. We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”
The declaration originates from an interview with JoBlo for the promotion of Spider-Man: Homecoming. While the maker and studio head declined to give specifics, the two characters thought to be slaughtered off are Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America).
It’s significant that Chris Evans didn’t start shooting on Avengers: Infinity War until May, in spite of production beginning late in January. While this could be an indication that he has a little part, that hasn’t been affirmed and it’s conceivable that he could have been shooting late simply because the spin-off has a colossal cast with supposedly 67 characters. This is in spite of the fact that Marvel still hasn’t released an official cast list as of now.
Only a couple of days prior, another Infinity War set photograph prodded the build-up of a group in the Marvel comics known as the Illuminati. The members of this mystery society included Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Namor, Black Bolt from Inhumans and a couple of characters Marvel Studios doesn’t control the rights to, Professor Charles Xavier from the X-Men franchise and Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four. It’s absolutely conceivable that Wong and Hulk could substitute for Xavier and Mr. Fantastic, and since Anson Mount is playing Black Bolt in the ABC Inhumans TV show, it’s conceivable he could traverse to the film universe as well. This is in spite of the fact that that would be the first time that a MCU TV character has showed up on the huge screen.
According to the comics, the group was made after the Kree-Skrull War, when these characters understood that the information that they concealed from each other could have kept the war from occurring. This became the basis for this current group’s built-up. They would secretly without other Avengers knowing what info was exchanged.
Some other characters who might turn out to be a part of the Illuminati all through the comic book run are Captain America and Black Panther, alongside Amadeus Cho, who was named as the new Hulk in Marvel Comics in 2015.
Obviously, Marvel Studios isn’t totally obliged to the comics, and they could surely get more new individuals for this Illuminati group. Ideally, we’ll have more on Avengers: Infinity War as production proceeds and as we get nearer to the release date on 4th May, 2018.
