7] SCARLET WITCH
Wanda Maximoff, AKA Scarlet Witch, is one of the most powerful Avengers in the group’s history. Her mystical powers includes telekinesis-like state. Scarlet Witch is expendable. She has only been featured in two MCU movies so far, and even then it was only as a secondary character. She has been ridiculously under-powered throughout her entire tenure despite still being considered one of the strongest Avengers. When Thanos arrives, she’s a goner. One of the most common movie tropes used to show a villain’s strength is to have him take down one of the most powerful heroes; Wanda fits the bill perfectly.
6] NICK FURY
If not an Avengers, which hero’s death would have a deep emotional impact than Nick Fury? He has been there since the beginning, and has shown up in numerous MCU films as the director of S.H.E.I.L.D. and as a friend/foil to their titular hero. He’s the premiere badass of the MCU, and will without a doubt stand with the other Avengers as they take on the Mad Titan. Of course, Fury has no powers at all. He can’t fly or summon lightning or wield a bullet-proof shield, meaning that he defending Thanos powers is a little difficult. Samuel L. Jackson has appeared in seven of the nine films he originally signed on for, and although the actor says he would love to extend his contract, Infinity War would be the perfect farewell for the character.
Now this is a BIG one. Thor is one of the most popular Avengers and arguably one of the most popular characters in the entire MCU. Despite his popularity, his movies seem to be hit-or-miss with most people; the Thor film franchise is currently the lowest earning film series in the MCU. Both movies have made boat loads of money, but not as much as the Captain America, Iron Man, or The Avengers films. Thor: Ragnarok is set to wrap up the trilogy as well as tie the world of Asgard into the struggle for the Gauntlet. While Thor is confirmed for Infinity War – Part I but not Part II, it makes one wonder what fate has in store for the God of Thunder. Besides, Marvel has already gone on record about wanting to change up the Avengers teams (as seen at the end of Age of Ultron), and eliminating one of their strongest characters would present an interesting challenge for the team moving forward.
The death that was teased all throughout the second Avengers movie may finally come to fruition during Infinity War. Even Clint Barton (AKA Hawkeye) himself realizes how under-powered he is when facing off against Avengers baddies: “The city is flying and we’re fighting an army of robots. And I have a bow and arrow. Nothing makes sense,” he grumbles amid the chaos of Age of Ultron’s climax. Although the character may be out of his league with his fellow heroes, fans have fallen in love with Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Marvel, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to know what to do with Barton. He has a large role in Age of Ultron, but was under mind-control for most of the original Avengers and was just a secondary character in Civil War. And Hawkeye talks about how much he wants to retire, walking away from the Avengers at the end of Age of Ultron. If Clint Barton gets dragged into Infinity War, don’t expect him to come out alive.
Even as the current ruler of Asgard, Loki will not be safe from the wrath of the Mad Titan. He is the most loved Villian, and being that his death will leave an emotional impact, which is the need of time. Besides, it is probably time for audiences to say goodbye to Loki, considering he has been a main antagonist in four separate MCU movies.
2] CAPTAIN AMERICA
Chris Evans has mentioned that he wants to take a break from acting and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) is signed on for six more MCU movies. In the comics, Bucky took over after Steve Roger’s tragic assassination and storywise, Captain’s death makes sense. In Age of Ultron, Tony Stark saw a vision of the broken shield along with all of his dead teammates. It is assumed that Stark was not seeing a hallucination, but a vision of the future.
1] IRON MAN
There are many reason why this is going to surly happen, the main is Money, yes RDJ is the costliest for MCU and even RDJ has given signals, that this might the his last one!
