Marvel may have had an incredible year in 2018 but 2019 is set to be the year that breaks comic book fans’ hearts.

Avengers: Infinity War was an incredible blockbuster of epic proportions, celebrating ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yet, Avengers: Endgame is sure to surpass it.

Well, so long as you don’t mind the odd permanent death of a beloved character or two…

Who Died in Avengers Endgame?

Following the events of Avengers: Infinity War, it was clear that not all of the iconic heroes would survive the wrath of arch-villain Thanos.

And, after the trailers for Avengers: Endgame and Spider-man: Far From Home earlier this year, many fan theories speculated that Iron Man would struggle to survive until the very end.

At this time, we have to agree. A storm was headed for the Avengers, and there was no way that they would all surface unscathed.

Many have predicted that Captain America would also be the notable Avenger to leave us.

Is Iron Man Dead? 

It really breaks our hearts to say this, but the fate of Iron Man is ambiguous, to say the least.

Throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have witnessed the demise of major players and seen them return to us in triumph.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this is the case for Iron Man. The MCU began with Tony Stark in 2008; Iron Man was the first outing, and kickstarted the franchise that we know and love today.

Miracles can happen, and let’s pray that they do.

Is Captain America Dead?

The Avengers: Endgame trailer saw the return of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and others, and we were all so excited back then to see their faces.

 

However, the trailers have a very dark, sombre tone, and the melancholic divide between the mighty Avengers translated to the full film.

Caps’ chances of survival are at 50/50 right now.

Is Spiderman Dead?

Tom Holland’s Spiderman has become a bonafide fan-favourite of the MCU over these recent years.

We first saw him swing onto our screens in Captain America: Civil War. Thankfully, it looks like we won’t see the web-slinger swinging away anytime soon.

Spiderman will be okay, folks!

Is Hulk Dead?

Despite casualties, it’s comforting to know that some of our favourite Avengers are still with us.

After all, the fate of the franchise must have hope, and it seems that Hulk is one of its saviours; perhaps we can expect a solo-feature from the enraged intellectual in the near future.

Avengers Endgame Possible Ending

If the storyline that Thanos’ infinity stone cull of half the population is to be reversed, but at the cost of a couple key Marvel players, then this is how the superhero list should look.

Baring in mind that it seems unlikely that all characters will have their fate reserved, as some were killed directly by Thanos in the build-up to him obtaining the infinity stones, such as Loki.

Survived Infinity War: Hulk, Hawkeye, Ant Man, Shuri (Black Panther’s sister), Pepper Potts, Nebula, Thor, Valkyrie, Black Widow, Rocket Racoon, War Machine.

Back for Endgame: Scarlet Witch, Spider Man, Star-Lord, Drax, Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Falcon, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Groot, Doctor Strange, The Wasp.

Impossible to Revive: Loki, Heimdall, Mantis, Vision.

Likey Endgame Sacrifices: Iron Man, Captain America.

Who Knows?: Gamora.
