I think we’re all aware that quite a few characters die in Avengers: Infinity War. Like, a lot. If you read the Infinity Gauntlet comic this shouldn’t come as a surprise, though many were shocked at just which ones bit the dust (so to speak).
Well, one of them might not actually be dead. Warning: spoilers ahead.
While Thanos did, in fact, get the Reality Stone from The Collector’s vault at Knowhere the actual events leading to it where it was never shown. Collector’s appearance in the movie where all an illusion created by Thanos to lure Gamora into a trap.
Recently Benicio del Toro was asked about the real fate of his infamous character and had a pretty simple response.
“I think he’s alive. Yeah… I think that, you know, I think he’s alive. You’re talking to him!”
Sure, he could simply be playing coy, but The Collector isn’t an idiot. He’s survived with the galaxy’s most rare and coveted rarities for a long, long time. You don’t last that long without having an escape plan or two (Which is also why Loki’s death is a bit puzzling).
There is most certainly a chance we may see The Collector again.

10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Now that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.
Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
