THEORY: Nobody Actually Died In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’?

Avengers: Infinity War has been chasing down box office records and it is already the 4th highest grossing MCU movie ever, behind The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Black Panther.

If the movie’s performance is any indication, then we can be sure of the fact that it will be the highest grossing Marvel film within no time. The movie has pleased fans and critics alike and this comic-book movie is said to be the darkest MCU movie to date, and rightly so with half of our favourite Avengers biting the dust (quite literally).

We are almost certain of the fact that our beloved superheroes (and Star-Lord) will come back to life as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Untitled Spider-Man 2 have already been announced but what if they were never actually dead?

Throwback to the release of Doctor Strange, in her final moments, the Ancient One told Strange that she saw many futures but could never look past her own death. But, in Avengers: Infinity War, Strange saw 14 million (and 605) possible futures and while dying (apparently), he told Stark that it was the only way indicating that it was that ONE possibility in which the Avengers defeated Thanos.

But how could he have known about that possibility if he actually had died? Just like the Ancient One, even he wouldn’t be able to look past his own death. This can either be a massive plothole or this proves that nobody has actually died, while confirming the Soul Stone theory, i.e., half of the people are stuck in the soul dimension.

It is also interesting to note that Peter Parker’s last words were, “I don’t want to go, Mr. Stark” (still hurts). ‘GO’, not ‘Die’. We know that Marvel loves hiding secrets in plain sight and this might be an easter egg that we’ve conveniently missed out on.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.


As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
