James Gunn confirms the fate of one of the characters on the cosmic side that was left unseen in Avengers: Infinity War, a Marvel film he executive produced. He may have also just hinted that the character in question will be in Avengers 4, a film he is also involved with.
Reaching out to his fans via Twitter, Gunn explained that yes, Kraglin Obfonteri did indeed survive Thanos’s snap of doom at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and that there’s a greater plan for the character — strongly implying that he’ll be in Avengers 4:
Kraglin is still around – don’t worry! He has important stuff to do and all will be eventually revealed (thus has been my top question of the day btw so I’m glad to see you’re keeping him in your hearts!) https://t.co/n8X6UC7PaR

So if Kraglin’s still around, this ought to give fans hope that other characters who sat Avengers: Infinity War out will be back for the grand finale. Korg, Miek, and Valkyrie fans can probably sleep a little better at night.
Avengers: Infinity War is now playing in theaters, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Terry Notary, Carrie Coon, and Josh Brolin. Here’s the official Infinity War synopsis:
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.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside returning actors Jeremy Renner and Paul Rudd and newcomers like Brie Larson, Evangeline Lilly, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Emma Fuhrmann — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
