'Avengers: Endgame': [Spoiler alert] Here is how 'Infinity War' hinted at all the deaths that were to come
For a long time, people speculated that Captain America would probably be the one who gives up his life to save the world
With the arrival of 'Avengers: Endgame', our worst fears have been confirmed. Ever since Marvel announced that it would be bidding goodbye to Avengers once and for all, we all knew that death was coming for our superheroes.
For a long time, people speculated that Captain America would probably be the one who gives up his life for his loved ones — which wasn't surprising as he is known for his virtuosity and leadership. So, seeing him throw himself under the bus just to save his loved ones may not have been as surprising as we thought.
However, Marvel had other plans. They knew too well that the final movie needed to be a stab at all its viewers and, therefore, they decided to take the two characters that no one thought would die. Unfortunately, for all the Marvel fans, the two heroes were Black Widow and Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron man.
In 'Avengers: Infinity War', we saw these two great soldiers fighting till their last breath and trying to save those around them. While they may have failed in saving the world from Thanos, they did not lose hope of bringing back what they had lost.
Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, was always shown to be a ferocious woman but things were different in 'Infinity War' as we saw her being rather emotional and constantly talking about the reason she was meant to be there. We should have guessed that things were not going to end well for her.
Despite her hardships, Black Widow knew that she had to give up her life for love and for the sake of everyone else. The gut-wrenching moment where Black Widow and Hawkeye have to choose to sacrifice someone in order to get the soul stone made us realize that Black Widow knew right from the beginning why she was one of the people who stayed back.
Without taking a moment to think about anyone else, she knew that the most important thing for her at the point was to save the ones that had disappeared. She proved to us that, sometimes, when love takes over someone, you care only about keeping them alive.
Just like Black Widow, the death of Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., was also predicted in 'Infinity War'. We see Tony asking Dr. Strange about the chances of them winning the battle. Strange replies, "One out of 14 billion."
If you thought it was just a coincidence that Tony happened to be the one to ask that question, well, you were wrong. Strange knew it all along that, if there was anyone or anything that could stop Thanos, it had to be Iron Man. And Tony found that out very soon. Without taking a second to think about his beautiful little daughter or his wife, Tony sacrificed himself and saved the world.
While the two superheroes have been a prominent part of the movie for a long time, seeing them say goodbye was a hard hit to all the fans.
However, they sacrificed themselves for the betterment of humanity and proved themselves to be true superheroes.
