My Guesses as to Who Will Be Dead at the End of AVENGERS: ENDGAME
Avengers: Endgame is due out in less than a week and I am excited! This is the end of the infinity saga and closes the story from 22 films. This is an event! Leading up to its predecessor, Infinity War, we were told the stakes were high and people would die.
This led to a lot of speculation and in the end, half of the universe dissolved. Well, with Endgame, we’ll find out how many of these deaths (including those that happened before the Decimation) are permanent. I’ve decided to throw my 2 cents into the hat of theories regarding who will be dead at the end of Endgame.
I know there are a bunch of theories saying that Loki’s not actually dead. Combine those with the fact that we’re getting a Loki series on Disney+ and it’s convincing. However, I believe that Loki was actually killed, and he will stay dead at the end of Endgame. I love Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of the character, but I think it would be very poetic for Loki to finally have paid the ultimate price after so many tricks.
Gamora’s death was one that I did not foresee until just before it happened. It was very interesting to see unfold, and I think it’s permanent. This of course will shake things up for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but it makes the most sense to have some permanence to the story of Infinity War.
I believe Steve Rogers will die in Endgame merely because if he does not die, Cap will not stop. He would have to return in future Marvel films until they finally kill him off, and by then we might run into the movie version of Cap actually being Hydra. If they do not kill him, they’ll have to come up with a good reason as to why he stops righting wrongs.
Would there be a more poetic end to the infinity saga than with the death of the character that started it all. One theory is that Tony will sacrifice himself in an attempt to save his fellow Avengers as he remembers his vision from Age of Ultron. Unlike Steve, I can see ways for them to not have to deal with Tony in future movies which is why I’m not as sold on it, but I still think it’s likely to happen.
