Avengers: Infinity War -- 12 Things The Movie Undoes In The MCU
Created by Chris E. Hayner on
Infinity War makes some massive changes to things established elsewhere in the MCU
There's no doubt about it, Avengers: Infinity War is the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most massive entry yet. It's packed with characters, plot developments, game-changing moments, and a massive cliffhanger that leaves a year for fans to cope with everything they've witnessed. This is where we warn you to stop reading if you've yet to see the movie, as we are going to dig into some heavy spoiler territory.
That's not all Infinity War is packing, though. In addition to the death, destruction, and insanity that unfolds throughout the nearly three-hour movie, there are also some major changes made to MCU canon. Things established in previous movies throughout Marvel's 10-year streak of superhero adventures are altered to better fit the story of Infinity War.
There's little doubt that these changes will impact the MCU for years to come, given the movies Marvel already has on the way. However, there are still two movies to come before Avengers 4 takes over theaters. Both Ant-Man and The Wasp will likely carry heavy implications for the next Avengers movie, given how the characters from both films are likely to play a major role.
While Ant-Man himself didn't factor into Infinity War at all, thanks to the deal he cut with the government, Captain America, Thor, and the rest of the surviving Avengers are going to need all of the help they can get their hands on in Avengers 4. That's also, most likely, where Captain Marvel will come into play. In the movie's post-credits scene, Nick Fury sends out a distress message to the female superhero that's getting her own standalone film in 2019--just in time to introduce fans to her before she swoops in to help save the day in Avengers 4.
Come along with GameSpot as we take a look at what, exactly, has been changed in Marvel's latest outing. Additionally, you can see our look at every character that died in Infinity War, as well as those that didn't end up in the movie at all.
