Marvel’s heroes have all been working towards the climactic battle that will take place in the Avengers: Infinity Wars film. The exciting Avengers movie showcases the story of the Mad Titan, Thanos, who plans to destroy Earth with his collection of the all-powerful infinity stones and the infamous Infinity Gauntlet. Every hero’s journey has led him or her to this very moment: the moment when they must defeat the ultimate evil and save the world.
We know what you’re thinking: every Marvel hero has fought “the end of the world” before. Still, there is something different about this newest film – there is something final and foreboding about it.
It’s almost like Marvel is setting us up for an all-star episode of the popular reality show Survivor. Twenty of your favorite castaways are brought to a deserted tropical island where they must battle it out for the ultimate title of “Survivor”; except – in this case – you can’t help but worry that the title “Survivor” is a little more literal than figurative…
Chances are – if you’re a Marvel fan – you’ve been analyzing every detail of the popular Infinity War trailer and speculating widely about what it all means.
Why does Iron Man look so sad? Is that Bruce Banner buried at the bottom of a pile of debris? Why isn’t he in his Hulk form? Why is everyone so damn upset!? Did Black Panther just say, “evacuate the city”? The city is never evacuated. Oh man, this is getting intense.
Okay, it’s time to panic. Don’t tell us that Marvel brought all of our favorite characters – Black Panther, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and more – together just so we can watch them get collectively defeated by that giant ugly purple guy, right? RIGHT?!
Yet, Marvel does have a way of breaking our hearts, so this could be the setup for a final departure for some of our favorites heroes. Is someone about to get voted off the island?
Thanos’ booming voice declares:
In time, you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.
His quote has a very “the tribe has spoken” permanence to it that we are a little worried about. Our hearts can’t handle our favorite Marvel characters getting voted off the island.
Either way, we are on the edge of ours seats in anticipation for the movie premiere in April 2018; it’s excitement and dread all rolled into one. Be sure to get your very own Design By Humans Marvel Avengers: Infinity War tee and let’s hope no one gets voted off the island!
