Warning: this post includes major spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
It goes without saying that there’s a lot of death in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. Deaths that may no doubt be undone with Avengers 4, but for the time being, the Russo Brothers dished out a huge dosage of death for the recent Avengers film, including that of Black Panther as T’Challa fell prey to Thanos’ finger snap.
But someone tried to stop this, and it wasn’t T’Challa himself. Nate Moore, a production and development executive at Marvel Studios, not to mention a producer on Black Panther, recently told The Huffington Post that he was aware of the Russo Brothers’ plan as far back as 2015, when director Ryan Coogler was at the time working on Creed. With this knowledge in mind, Moore revealed that he still asked the Russo Brothers to wait on killing Black Panther.
“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore said. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in that film, and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”
In addition, though Moore could not go into detail, he did understand the rationale behind the decision made by the Russos.
“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” Moore said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well ‘Black Panther’ was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”
Again, even with all of this death in mind, there’s no doubt that a good number of the deaths by the finger snap will be undone in the still untitled Avengers 4 film. How do you believe the Avengers will undo the events of Infinity War? Are there any characters you hope to return or any that you prefer stay dead? Let us know in the comments below.

The 5 Best (And 5 Worst) Characters In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
After ten years worth of stories, Avengers: Infinity War is finally here. The 19th entry in the sprawling Marvel saga, things couldn’t be any more different here than they were in the universe’s birthplace: Iron Man. While that movie established a world that superheroes like Captain America and Thor would later join, Iron Man himself was the only superhero in that first movie. Even Colonel Rhodes, originally played by Terrence Howard instead of Don Cheadle, didn’t don his War Machine armor until the next movie, after the Hulk and Abomination had been added to the mix.
While the action and visuals are enjoyable, what truly makes Avengers: Infinity War such an impressive movie are all the characters. Over the last ten years, Kevin Feige and his team over at Marvel Studios have slowly and methodically built out this universe to include a wide roster of heroes and villains. Now, after all the characters have been properly introduced, the world’s mightiest heroes must come together to fight a foe who’s been waiting for them since the end of The Avengers. Unfortunately, not all heroes are created equal and some of these characters came across as disappointing or boring in Infinity War. The movie may have shattered box office records, but that doens’t mean all of the characters come across well at the end of it all.
