Jump to: Spoilers (126)
  • It was rumored that Steve Rogers would not appear in this film, as his role as Captain America would have been passed to Bucky Barnes, in Captain America: Civil War (2016). However, the theory was ruled out once Chris Evans confirmed that would appeared in the movie.
  • This movie's release date was revealed while Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) was still in production.
  • All three Marvel Cinematic Universe phases have referenced either an Infinity Stone or the Infinity Gauntlet with two stones making their debut within each phase. The Space and Mind Stone first appeared during Phase 1, though they were not revealed to be Infinity Stones until Phase 2.
  • According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, The Avengers are expected to have a "shake-up" in their team line-up between this movie and Untitled Avengers Movie (2019).
  • This movie is Chapter Seven of Phase Three in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Although Joss Whedon directed the first two Avengers movies, he did not return to direct either of the next two Avengers movies. Some cast members later admitted that Whedon had a difficult time directing such a close group of actors and actresses, since every creative difference he had with a single person would often lead to a discussion with the others as well. Instead, the Russo Brothers, who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2016), directed this movie and Untitled Avengers Movie (2019).
  • This is the nineteenth movie released by Marvel Studios in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • The 2014 Comic-Con revealed that Josh Brolin would play Thanos in future Marvel movies when he came on-stage wearing the Infinity Gauntlet.
  • Although Tony Stark (Iron Man) quit The Avengers, and Bruce Banner (The Hulk) disappeared at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), their participation in the two films has not been ruled out, though Iron Man and The Hulk are returning to aid the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy against Thanos.

Captain America: Civil War (2016) was the first movie to incorporate the new cameras, but only for its airport fight sequence. This made this movie the first non-documentary movie to be shot entirely with IMAX cameras in an exclusive open-matte aspect ratio of 1.90:1. Unfortunately, the standard theatrical and home video releases crop the film down to the regular widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1.

  • Robert Downey, Jr. had a separate deal from his Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars when he signed on to reprise his role as Tony Stark (Iron Man) in subsequent Avengers films, after The Avengers (2012).

These negotiations occurred separately after he completed his contract to do the Iron Man (2008) trilogy.
  • The Defenders are rumored to appear in Part I, but not Part II. However, the Inhumans are rumored to appear in Part II.
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and the untitled Avengers sequel (2019) are two-part finale films, but not in the same vein as previous two-part films like the "Harry Potter," "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" franchises. Instead of one story being told with a cliffhanger at the end the first part, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and the untitled sequel will have two very different stories that complement each other -- each of which revolving around Thanos and the Infinity Stones/Gauntlet.
  • At a press event for Captain America: Civil War (2016) in May 2016, Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed that Infinity War part 1, will mark the cinematic debut of Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, before her solo film in February 2019.

This ultimately did not happen.
  • Marvel confirmed at Comic-Con in San Diego 2016 that Captain Marvel will be played by Brie Larson.

  • Brie Larson will make her debut as Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel in this movie, leading to the Captain Marvel solo film, and then Avengers 4.

  • Natalie Portman announced she would not appear in the movie as Dr. Jane Foster, and that she will not be involved in any future Marvel comic book movies. Portman had signed on to do Thor: The Dark World (2013), and was apparently unhappy when Director Patty Jenkins was replaced by Alan Taylor. She did not appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017) for the same reason.

  • It was rumored that Vin Diesel will also portray Groot via motion capture, unlike the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, where it was only his voice.

This ties him with Hugh Jackman (Wolverine Logan in the X-men film franchise) as the actor who has portrayed the same comic book character the most times.
  • The Incredible Hulk has gradually decreased the time between his appearances throughout the twenty-first century, by one year fragments. Eric Bana starred in Hulk (2003), with the franchise being rebooted with The Incredible Hulk (2008), starring Edward Norton. The part was re-cast with Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers (2012). Ruffalo reprised his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), with him then again reprising it in Thor: Ragnarok (2017). He appeared in this movie.

  • When the film was first announced, it was rumored that film would concluded the Thanos and the Infinity Stones story-arcs and that plot would be about The Avengers teaming up with The Gurdians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos and stop him from possessing all 6 Infinity Stone and destroying the universe.
  • This was the third collaboration between Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch) and Josh Brolin (Thanos) after Old Boy (2013) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), respectively.
  • The official trailer for this movie showed Spider-Man exhibiting his spider-sense ability, which was not clearly displayed in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), though it was seen quickly in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • The poster was not originally supposed to be revealed when it was, but it was released early because Tom Holland (Peter Parker, Spider-Man) accidentally leaked it on Instagram Live after receiving it from Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner, The Hulk). This was may have been set up as an in-joke due to both actors being known for slipping up and revealing secrets from their respective films before they were released.
  • The first trailer received two hundred thirty million views in twenty-four hours. This broke the previous record for most viewed trailer within twenty-four hours that was previously held by It (2017), with one hundred ninety-seven million views.
  • The first trailer for this movie racked up more than two hundred million views in twenty-four hours, setting a new record for the most trailer views in a single day. After debuting Wednesday morning, the trailer earned two hundred thirty million views in its first day, according to Marvel. This movie's record viewership dethrones the previous champion, It (2017), which earned one hundred ninety-seven million views when the first trailer dropped earlier this year.
  • Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had a new look for this movie. At the end of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Steve Rogers quit as Captain America, something which occurred several times in the comic book. For the first time, he assumed the identity of "Nomad". Rogers' costume in this film captured basic elements of the Nomad character, in that it is primarily blue and features yellow, disk-like objects attached at the collar. For the second time Steve Rogers quit, he was featured to have grown scraggly with a beard, and he would eventually shave the beard and create a new identity as "The Captain". Consequently, the physical appearance and costume for Steve Rogers is a combination of the two most popular times he quit being Captain America.
  • Getting two hundred thirty million views in the first twenty-four hours after release, the first trailer surpassed the It (2017) trailer to become the most viewed movie trailer of all time.
  • This movie is set to release on May 4, 2018. The Avengers (2012) was also released on May 4.

  • This is Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans' ninth time playing Iron Man and Captain America respectively. This ties them with Hugh Jackman (Wolverine from the X-Men film franchise) for the actor with the most appearances as the same superhero. The times taken for Evans & Downey to accomplish this milestone (Evans - seven years, Downey - ten years) add up to time taken by Jackman (seventeen years).
  • This movie was released five days before the 10th Anniversary of Iron Man (2008), the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • In the trailer, Steve Rogers says "together," Tony Stark replies "we'll lose," and Rogers in return says, "we'll do that together too." This dialogue was taken from Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • This movie was scheduled to be released exactly six years after the release of The Avengers (2012), but on March 1, 2018, Marvel moved the release date up to April 27.
  • Just as they paid homage to their television show Community (2009) in the second and third "Captain America" movies, the Russo Brothers also included another Easter egg from their other well-known show, Arrested Development (2003), in this movie. In Captain America: Civil War (2016), the stair car from Arrested Development (2003) appeared in the Berlin airport. In this movie, blue Tobias F?nke from that same show appeared in one of The Collector's display cases. He can be seen behind and to the left of Gamora in one shot.
  • This is the first time that the Guardians of the Galaxy meet The Avengers.
  • Natasha Romanoff sports a whitish-blonde hair color, making her resemble Yelena Belova, who, for a while, impersonated Black Widow in the comic books.
  • On March 1, 2018, as North America was approaching the May 5 release of the movie, Marvel Studios announced that this movie would release worldwide one week earlier, on April 27, 2018. The move comes from The Walt Disney Company's decision to let this movie have more time in the spotlight, before Disney and Lucasfilm released Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) on May 25, 2018.
  • Marvel/Disney haven't yet released or teased anything about this film's running time, but there is speculation from fans and other sources that the running time may be 156 minutes (2 hours 36 minutes) if that running time is true then this will be the longest film in the MCU by a total of 9 minutes.
  • Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bucky Barnes (The Winter Soldier) would go by the code name of "White Wolf" in this movie, as he was called by the children of Wakanda in a post-credits scene of Black Panther (2018). White Wolf in the comics was T'Challa's adopted brother, Hunter, who was the leader of Wakanda's secret police, the Hatut Zeraze.
  • Both Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) have portrayed Sherlock Holmes in the film 'Sherlock Holmes' (2009) & it's sequel and the tv series 'Sherlock' respectively.

With a combined total of ten, this movie now holds the record for the most number of total Oscar nominees to be featured in a MCU film (Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017) still hold the record for the most number of winners featured, which is three).
  • In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this movie marks the third time the Russos have worked with characters Captain America, Black Widow, Falcon, and the Winter Soldier; their second time working with Iron Man, War Machine, Hawkeye, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and Jack Rawlins; and their first time working with everyone else.

  • This is Peter Dinklage's second Marvel Comics adaptation. The previous one was X-Men: Days of Future Past. His character in that film was named Trask, which is an anagram of Stark. Both characters are billionaire industrialists.
  • Spider-Man asks Tony if he's seen that "really old movie" Aliens (1986). This mirrors his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War (2016), where he called Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) a "really old movie".

  • Zoe Saldana is reunited with Star Trek villains Benedict Cumberbatch and Idris Elba in this movie. She also shared scenes with Chris Hemsworth, who appeared in Star Trek (2009). The role of Bruce Banner (Hulk), in the unrelated Hulk (2003), was played by Star Trek villain Eric Bana.
  • The flip phone that Captain America had, had a 678 area code. 678 is a U.S. area code for Atlanta, Georgia, where this movie was filmed.
  • The cast features three Academy Award winners, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio Del Toro, and William Hurt, and seven nominees, Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bradley Cooper, Josh Brolin, and Samuel L. Jackson.
  • In the Marvel Studios logo that runs during the opening credits, the 'io' in 'Studios' is replaced by the digits '10.' The film was released just shy of 10 years after "Iron Man," the first MCEU release.
  • This movie crossed the worldwide box-office mark of one billion dollars in a record time of eleven days after its release. This is the sixth Marvel movie to make this much.
  • Josh Brolin based his characterization on Marlon Brando's role as Colonel Walter Kurtz in Apocalypse Now (1979).
  • Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Brolin appeared as love interests in Oldboy (2013), the second live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga.
  • Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen appeared in I Saw the Light (2015) about American country singer Hank Williams.
  • The new Spider-Man suit is based on the Iron Spider outfit from the comics. Like its movie counterpart, it was also created by Tony Stark. This is also the first movie to have Spider-Man use it, as this costume first appeared at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).
  • The new Iron Man suit is based on Bleeding Edge, and later, Model-Prime armors from the comic books, both of which which used nanotechnology to create a suit which is linked to Stark, and can also create weapons for him to use, such as a bigger gun, and stored away when not in use, which, for the movie, is inside Stark's new arc reactor on his chest as seen when he taps it with his hand.
  • Carrie Coon was pregnant while doing the motion-capture and voicework for Proxima Midnight. However, most of Proxima Midnight's fight scenes were performed on-set in a motion-capture suit by stuntwoman Monique Ganderton, who is five inches taller than Carrie Coon.
  • Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro previously worked together in Inherent Vice
  • Screentime for each major character; Thanos - twenty-nine minutes, Gamora - nineteen minutes and thirty seconds, Tony Stark (Iron Man) - eighteen minutes, Thor - fourteen minutes and thirty seconds, Dr. Stephen Strange - eleven minutes and thirty seconds, Peter Quill (Star-Lord) - ten minutes and fifteen seconds, The Vision - nine minutes and forty-five seconds, Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) - nine minutes, Dr. Bruce Banner (The Incredible Hulk) - eight minutes and forty-five seconds, Peter Parker (Spider-Man) - seven minutes and thirty seconds, Steve Rogers - six minutes and forty-five seconds, Rocket Raccoon - six minutes, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) - five minutes, Drax - four minutes and forty-five seconds, Mantis - four minutes and forty-five seconds, Ebony Maw - four minutes, Proxima Midnight - three minutes and forty-five seconds, Cull Obsidian - three minutes and forty-five seconds, Corvus Glaive - three minutes and thirty seconds, King T'Challa (Black Panther) - three minutes and thirty seconds, Groot - three minutes and fifteen seconds, Nebula - three minutes and fifteen seconds, Okoye - three minutes and fifteen seconds, Loki - three minutes and fifteen seconds, Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes (War Machine) - three minutes, Eitri - two minutes and forty-five seconds, Wong - two minutes and forty-five seconds, Sam Wilson (Falcon) - two minutes and fifteen seconds, James "Bucky" Barnes (White Wolf) - two minutes, Pepper Potts - one minute and thirty seconds, The Stonekeeper - one minute and thirty seconds, Princess Shuri - one minute, M'Baku - one minute, Secretary of State Thaddeus E.

  • Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro appeared in Inherent Vice (2014), Sicario (2015), and Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018).
  • Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) telling Peter Parker (Tom Holland) to cut it out with the pop culture references is quite hypocritical, as Stark often pokes fun at other characters by calling them by movie titles or character names. In The Avengers (2012), Stark called Loki Reindeer Games (2000), Rock of Ages (2012), and Shakespeare in the Park (1995), he called Thor Point Break (1991), and he called Hawkeye "Legolas". In Captain America: Civil War (2016), he called Bucky The Manchurian Candidate (2004). In Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), he called Peter Parker "Crockett", as a reference to Miami Vice (1984). In this movie, he scorned Ebony Maw by calling him "Squidward", and he called Star Lord Flash Gordon (1980).
  • Kenneth Branagh (who directed Thor (2011)) can be heard at the beginning of the movie issuing the distress transmission that the Asgardian ship was being attacked.
  • Drax's line "I'll do you one better: Why is Gamora?" was ad-libbed by Dave Bautista. In an interview Dave says that Chris Pratt actually gave him the idea for the line.
  • Jeffrey Ford and Matthew Schmidt worked on the first three Avengers movies as editors. While Jeffrey Ford is credited as the Editor on all three, Matthew Schmidt is credited as Assistant and Associate Editor on the first two.
  • Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Pom Klementieff and Samuel L. Jackson have previously appeared in "Old Boy" (2013).
  • Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) improvised their banter about their hair on the battlefield.
  • Mark Ruffalo revealed that he was given a fake script due to his habit of accidentally spoiling past Marvel movies. He jokingly claimed in an interview that the fake script was better than the real one.
  • This is the only Avengers movie so far to not be released in theaters in May, and the second Marvel Cinematic Universe to be released in April since Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014).
  • Tom Holland accidentally revealed the movie's teaser poster via an Instagram live stream in November 2017. The poster contained a note from Mark Ruffalo explaining that the poster had not yet been released, and Holland was supposed to keep it a secret. Ironically, Holland had already showed the poster to the camera and read the message out loud before discovering a large sign on the back that read "CONFIDENTIAL, DO NOT SHARE". However, this seems like a deliberate set-up from the studio, as Holland and Ruffalo are known for revealing too many secrets about past Marvel movies. Plus, it lined up too conveniently with the release date of the first trailer. However, no proof exists.
  • Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) (Scarlett Johansson) has sported a different hairstyle in every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in which she has appeared: In Iron Man 2 (2010), it was long, curly, and red, in The Avengers (2012), it was short and red, in Captain America: the Winter Soldier (2014), it was of medium length, straight, and red, in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), it was short, curly and red (similar to her hairstyle in The Avengers (2012)), in Captain America: Civil War (2016) it was long and red, and in this movie, it was short and blonde.
  • Anthony and Joe Russo explained that they did not include a scene showing Thanos's journey to Xandar to retrieve the Power Stone because they felt like it was self-explanatory and would only add unnecessary scenes to the film.
  • Despite being a major actor in the movie, Chris Evans did not appear during the press tour, due to his involvement in the Broadway revival of Lobby Hero. He did, however, appear in a prerecorded bit titled "The Marvel Bunch" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2014).
  • Although the Iron Spider suit appeared towards the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker did not wear it until this movie.
  • It is implied that Tony Stark's new Iron Man suit was designed with help and technology from Wakanda.
  • In Thor (2011), Odin mentioned that Thor's hammer Mj?lnir was "forged inside a dying star". Some fans took this as an indication that Mj?lnir was made from neutronium, an extremely heavy substance that is sometimes left when big stars die (which would account for Mj?lnir's extreme weight). The revelation that Mj?lnir was forged in Nidavellir takes the metaphor even further, since Nidavellir is literally a forge inside the remains of a dead star.
  • Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie appeared in What's Your Number? (2011), Playing It Cool (2014) Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • Thanos' henchmen, known as "The Black Order", all have names that have something to do with blackness or darkness. Cull Obsidian, which basically means "black death". Ebony Maw, roughly "dark speaker". Proxima Midnight, or "among the darkness"/"of the darkness". Lastly, Corvus Glaive, whose first name is the name of the constellation depicting a raven. It's also the name for the genus of birds such as crows and ravens; black birds traditionally associated with death. So his name can be seen as black bird of death. (Glaive refers to his weapon, which grants him immortality, as long as it isn't destroyed)
  • Drax (Dave Bautista) mentions being able to stand still for hours on end. Bautista had to stand for several hours each day getting his make-up applied.
  • With a budget window of three hundred sixteen to four hundred million dollars, this is the most expensive movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, and the most expensive superhero movie of all time so far.
  • In the scene where Scarlet Witch and Vision sees the attack in New York City, she's standing outside a shop in Edinburgh, Scotland. You can clearly see a sign inside the store that reads "we will deep fry your Kebab". There is a long running joke (in the U.K. at least) that Scots will deep fry absolutely any food unnecessarily, which stems from the infamous Deep Fried Mars Bar.
  • According to Chadwick Boseman, production on this movie began just two weeks after production on Black Panther (2018) ended. This meant that all of the actors, actresses, and extras from that movie appeared in this movie and had no problem retaining their cadences.
  • In May 2018, this was one of three Marvel movies in theaters at the same time. The others being Black Panther (2018) and Deadpool 2 (2018).
  • At the beginning of the film, there is a voice coming from the ship that the people of Asgard are in. This call is voiced by Kenneth Branagah, the director of Thor (2011)
  • Tony Stark at one point asks Doctor Strange, "Do you concur, Doctor?" This line is frequently asked by Sherlock Holmes of Doctor Watson.
  • This became the fourth movie to gross over two billion dollars worldwide, after Avatar (2009), Titanic (1997), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
  • According to boxofficemojo.com, this is the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to surpass the two billion dollar mark worldwide. As of June 10, 2018, it ranks fourth in the All Time Worldwide Grosses chart, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
  • The fourth movie ever to reach the two billion dollar mark at the worldwide box-office. It is also the first superhero movie, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe title, the second non-James Cameron movie, and the second movie released by Disney (after Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)) to do so.
  • The name "Thanos" is a short form of the Greek name "Athanasios", which means "immortal" in Greek. In this movie, is a short form of the word "thanatos", which means "death" in Greek. He was an ancient Greek God (Thanatos) and twin brother of Sleep.
  • Avengers: Infinity War is the fourth ever movie in cinema history to reach the 2 billion dollar mark.
  • Zoe Saldana's second movie to earn two billion dollars at the worldwide box-office, the first being Avatar (2009). She received prominent billing in both movies.
  • Tom Holland was working on another movie at the same time of the filming of this movie. The other role required him to have longer hair than he'd previously had as Spider-Man, so he had his stylists incorporate the new length into his look for this movie. However, after seeing the final product when the first trailer came out, Holland regretted this decision, saying he looked ridiculous and jokingly compared himself to Prince Charming.
  • Thor confirms that "Groot" is a language that can be learned and spoken, as he took it as an elective in school on Asgard. This explains why only Rocket was originally able to understand Groot, and the other Guardians had to learn over time. This also confirms that Groot understands English (and likely other languages) but is only able to speak "Groot".
  • One of two 2018 films featuring Paul Bettany to feature a villain named "Proxima". Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) is the other.
  • This is the first film where Lou Ferrigno is not involved in any capacity in the portrayal of the Hulk. He has played the Hulk or provided his voice for the character a record 12 times in movies and television.
  • First movie in the Philippines to earn one billion Philippine pesos (around twenty to twenty-five million U.S. dollars). It also had the highest-grossing opening day there, with one hundred forty-one million Philippine pesos.
  • In Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), it was mentioned that Steve Rogers was born in 1918. If Rogers hadn't been frozen under for many years, then this movie, taking place in 2018, would make him one hundred years old.
  • Make sure to keep watching after the credits roll. There might be a sign of help on the way.
  • There are close to three thousand shots in this movie, with almost two thousand nine hundred of those being visual effects shots.
  • In the bottom right corner of Thanos' field, there is a brief moment where viewers can see a scarecrow made out of his armor. This is an homage to the comic books.
  • The line "Oh God", spoken by Captain America, was always the last line of the movie. There is also a parallel between this line and Loki's line from the beginning, "You will never be a god".
  • The filmmakers kept in mind ALFRED HITCHCOCK's dictum "If you show the gun, you have to use it." They made references to Thanos completing "the snap" and knew they had to use it.
  • The Vision's all-white look is a reference to one of his looks from the comic books.
  • Wanda was given her power from the Mind Stone, as discovered in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and she is consequently the only person who can destroy it.
  • The filmmakers wanted to explore the idea that these heroes are willing to sacrifice their own lives, but when are they willing to sacrifice somebody else?
  • There is a parallel between Thanos and Tony Stark, in that they both are aware of something from an early point and constantly have to deal with being smarter than others. Thanos is a futurist as much as Tony Stark, which is why he is aware of who Stark is from the original battle in New York City, as the person who undid the plan.
  • This is one of the only uses of the Soul Stone in the entire film.
  • Directors Anthony and Joe Russo wanted to pay homage to the Vincent Price movie, The Raven (1963), by showing a scene where Thanos' full powers went up against Doctor Strange's full powers.
  • There was originally a draft of the script where Captain America saving Vision was Cap's first appearance in the film. Like Lancelot in Excalibur (1981), Captain America shows up in this key moment of the battle to save Vision.
  • These scenes were filmed on a horse field outside Atlanta, on an incredibly hot day. Actor PAUL BETTANY endured the shoot in one of the most restrictive and intense costumes in the film.
  • Florence Kasumba made her third appearance as one of the members of the Dora Milaje. Her first was in Captain America: Civil War (2016), where she told Black Widow "move or you will be moved".
  • (At around one hour and fifty-three minutes) This is Thor and Captain America's first time seeing each other since Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • Black Panther punching Cull Obsidian is an iconic image translated directly from the comic books.
  • Josh Brolin acted in this movie with a foam headpiece that was the size of Thanos' head, with a camera on his face for visual effects. He also had to wear various foam parts depending on what the scene called for so the other actors and actresses didn't get too close to his real body, and so Thanos' scale was retained.
  • Star-Lord's line, "for the record, this was my plan" was a contribution from Chris Pratt.
  • Doctor Strange uses the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak to subdue Thanos momentarily, something Strange uses frequently in the comic books.
  • The filmmakers wanted to create small physical rules that would allow characters to stay in the fight with Thanos. The idea of Thanos having to close his fist to use a stone was the bare minimum that allowed for a fight to be put up.
  • There were certain drafts where more time was spent on Titan before it collapsed, with more backstory on Thanos. In the end, the screenwriters felt this glimpse was all that was needed.
  • Rocket calls the outriders "space dogs". This line was written after a focus group saw one of the test screenings: one of the viewers referred to the creatures as "space dogs". The filmmakers thought it was hilarious and decided to add it to the movie.
  • The river in Wakanda was built into the ground on a ranch in Georgia. There was a pump controlling the water and able to pump out thirty thousand gallons a minute.
  • (At around one hour and thirty-nine minutes) The name of these creatures is the Outriders, making their first appearance in the Infinity comic books.
  • The war cry "yibambe" isn't Wakandan. It's taken from the Xhosa language, spoken by twenty million people in Africa, and it translates to "hold fast".
  • The filmmakers worked with Director Ryan Coogler and his team from Black Panther (2018) as they had maps drawn of the country of Wakanda. They used these maps to better figure out where to place the battle and the strategy that would come into play.
  • The filmmakers did not know about the war chants the actors from Black Panther created, as that film was not nearly finished at the time of shooting. Winston Duke had started the chant, which led to the responding war cry that Chadwick Boseman leads.
  • Thor's childlike glee at the sight of Nidavellir is a moment back from his youth. This is his Asgardian heritage.
  • Thor's journey is compared by the filmmakers to the Labors of Hercules.
  • Bucky Barnes shows up for the fight, having been cryogenically frozen in Wakanda for a while following Captain America: Civil War (2016). While he was under, Shuri worked to cure him of his hypnosis as The Winter Soldier. It is also assumed that Steve Rogers has checked up on him periodically.
  • Entering Wakanda for the third act of the movie was not an easy decision for the filmmakers, and was discussed extensively. It was coming only two months after the release of Black Panther (2018), and the filmmakers did not want to have audiences feel like they were sitting through a repeat third act.
  • This image was conceived in the storyboarding process. The idea being that it was a transition that made it look like Thanos was transported to another part of the universe, but you find out that he's only been transported back down the mountain.
  • The filmmakers conceived very early that this would be the way to obtain the Soul Stone, as they wanted Thanos to have a dark moment. They didn't want this scene to end the second act because it was bad for the Avengers; they wanted this scene to end it because it's bad for Thanos.
  • The bubbles here are used as a visual cue that Thanos used the Reality Stone. Audiences already know what he did, without it having to be shown.
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers figuring out their plan on Titan was the first scene filmed over the first three days of shooting.
  • The name of Thor's ax "Stormbreaker" is a reference to the comic books, as it is the name of the hammer granted by Odin to Beta Ray Bill.
  • Directors Anthony and Joe Russo say that Thor obtaining his axe was one of the more complex scenes in the film to edit. The placement of scenes changed a lot.
  • There is a deleted scene that showed the Guardians of the Galaxy answering Nebula's distress calls.
  • The screenwriters initially struggled about where Thor's new axe would be. There were even versions of the script where it was trapped by a dragon. But, returning to the model of scenes serving more than one storytelling function, the screenwriters felt this worked, as it provided a test for Thor, but also displayed what Thanos has wrought.
  • Rocket carrying around a stolen eye is a callback to a running gag in both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, as he has always been obsessed with prosthetic body parts.
  • Gamora is undone by her sister, who, in part, she helped create. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), we find out that every time Gamora beat Nebula in a training session, Thanos replaced parts of her, trying to create a better fighter through robotic parts. After Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Gamora and Nebula's relationship is much stronger, so Gamora is torn here.
  • There is a deleted scene where Gamora and Thanos go even more deeply into their history together. It ended up being too long, and the filmmakers managed to make a tighter version work.
  • In The Avengers (2012), Tony goes to space for a brief moment and sees the looming threat of Thanos. Here he is back in space, about to face off with what he saw then.
  • Spider-Man referencing Aliens (1986) is a continuation of a running gag set up in Captain America: Civil War (2016), where Peter has a tendency to use "really old movies" as help for his fight plans. It also drives home the point of how young Peter is compared to the other characters in this movie.
  • The match-up of Ebony Maw against Doctor Strange is a nod to the Infinity comic books.
  • T'Challa calls Bucky Barnes "The White Wolf". In the comic books, The White Wolf is the alter ego of T'Challa's adopted older brother.
  • Wakanda was shot in a practical location in Georgia with trees and plants built in that were more indigenous to Africa. The foreground for Wakanda was practical, while the background was greenscreened, with textures and plates from Africa added.
  • Captain America is wearing the same suit he wore in Captain America: Civil War (2016). The filmmakers redesigned his outfit to distress and desaturate it. He has ripped the labels off as well. The scales underneath his suit are a nod to Cap's original suit from the comic books.
  • The Avengers' compound where this scene was shot is a two thousand-square-foot set. The colors were embraced more here than in the Captain America movies, as those were meant to desaturate things and bring Cap into the real world a little more.
  • There were drafts of the script where Tony and Steve reunited here, but it was much more complicated, and ultimately did not work.
  • Screenwriter Stephen McFeeley makes a cameo alongside William Hurt in this conference call.
  • There were versions of the script where Gamora and Thanos first ran into each other on Xandar while Thanos was obtaining the Power Stone. This was later changed to their reunion at Knowhere.
  • The filmmakers thought it was important to remind viewers what each Stone does and show it visually, which is why when Thanos obtains a Stone, he usually employs it in the following scene.
  • Knowhere is a setting from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) that the filmmakers wanted to show in a different light, to emphasize Thanos' effect on the universe.
  • (At around forty-three minutes) This scene had existed from the first draft, changing slightly through the process. It was always meant to highlight the abusive father-daughter relationship Thanos and Gamora have had.
  • Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon have been on the run for two years, becoming more hardened, living in the shadows.
  • There were early drafts of the script where the backstory of The Black Order was explored more. Ultimately, the story was getting too crowded, so it was removed. However, Proxima and Corvus were married in the comic books, and it is hinted at very slightly by pairing them up, and how she reacts to Corvus getting stabbed.
  • There is an extended scene that shows more of Wanda and The Vision trying to escape The Black Order.
  • (At around thirty-six minutes) These scenes between Wanda and Vision were shot on location in Edinburgh, Scotland. Edinburgh was chosen because the filmmakers wanted a romantic private place for the two of them to build their relationship that could turn scary and gothic very quickly.
  • From the early drafts, the filmmakers knew they wanted to split the Guardians of the Galaxy up. Much like the idea of "strange alchemy", they couldn't have them functioning as a group the whole time, and needed to have them interact with the new players.
  • Rocket reminded co-Director Joe Russo of Louie De Palma from Taxi (1978), tough on the outside, but with a little heart deep inside.
  • The filmmakers thought of Peter Quill as sort of a Peter Pan character, as he was kidnapped at the age of ten and raised by pirates. He's very flawed and very damaged, which makes him very human.
  • There was a fifteen-minute version of the scene with Thor on the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship. The scene was edited very early on, and didn't evolve much from the early cut.
  • Over the years, everyone on the team has by now picked up on a little of the Groot language, allowing everyone to understand what he says here.
  • It has been a few years since Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and we now see the Guardians as a more polished group.
  • The Russo Brothers make fun of their passion for title cards when the SPACE title comes up.
  • A big moment for the filmmakers was giving Spider-Man the Iron Spider outfit, something that was shown at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).
  • There is a nod to Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), when Ebony Maw burns his hand.
  • The filmmakers used The Black Order not only to keep the movie from feeling repetitive, but also to keep the heroes from fighting Thanos until the end.
  • The Black Order's power sets were adjusted for the movie, to not outshine the lead villain, and to line up with the heroes in a more interesting way.
  • The filmmakers wanted The Incredible Hulk and Bruce Banner's relationship to become increasingly dysfunctional, carrying over from his last appearance in Thor: Ragnarok (2017). What if The Incredible Hulk were no longer interested in solving problems for Bruce Banner.
  • (Around 17 minutes) This scene has moved from the soundstage to a street in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • Doctor Strange has been studying for a few years since his solo movie, and is now considered one of the more powerful characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The writers also wanted to have him come off as sort of "the adult in the room" throughout the movie.
  • (Cameo) Stan Lee: The comic book writer who co-created most of the characters featured in this movie is featured here as Peter Parker's school bus driver. In addition, this movie also contains remnants from Stan's past cameos: Tony Stark uses the flip phone that Stan delivered to him in Captain America: Civil War (2016), and Thor still sports the haircut that Stan gave him in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
  • The shot of Peter Parker's hair raising is CGI, and is also an example of his spider-sense warning him of danger.
  • (Around 17 minutes) The shot was meant to heighten tension as the characters move up the street, and also to ground the film in a way that came from the viewers' and the characters' collective points of view.
  • (At around seventeen minutes) This one-shot was filmed entirely on greenscreen at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • There was a reshoot scene between Tony and Pepper that illustrated where the phone came from, but it was later dropped from the movie.
  • The filmmakers wanted to show that Tony knows Wanda is on the run with Steve, Vision has been in a relationship with Wanda, and he has been okay with that. They wanted to make it clear that Tony has not been actively seeking to bring Steve, Natasha, Sam, and Wanda to justice.
  • The filmmakers had a phrase to describe characters meeting and interacting for the first time that they called "strange alchemy". The conflict of personalities between Tony Stark and Doctor Strange is a perfect example of this.
  • There is a deleted scene with an appearance by Happy Hogan in the park.
  • In the comic books, Morgan was the name of Tony Stark's cousin.
  • The Incredible Hulk crashing into Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum is a nod to the comic books, where the Silver Surfer is the one to crash through Strange's window and warn of the threat of Thanos.
  • The line "I wouldn't say no to a tuna melt" spoken by Wong was in the first draft of the script.
  • Co-Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confirmed that several Asgardians have escaped Thanos' attack, Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok (2017) being one of them.
  • This scene also shows how powerful Thanos is, by how easily he disposes of Loki, the main villain of the first Avengers.
  • Thanos and Loki had an off-screen relationship before The Avengers (2012), where he entrusted Loki with a duty, and he failed. This is Thanos making him pay for that.
  • The filmmakers wanted to show that from this moment forward, once Thanos disposes of his armor, he doesn't spend much of his energy intentionally trying to murder anyone unless he or she is a direct threat to Thanos' agenda.
  • The first Stone audiences see Thanos obtain is the Space Stone, which has significance as it was the first stone introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, originally appearing in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).
  • Ebony Maw is partly inspired by Mephisto from the Infinity Gauntlet comic book. Some lines are quoted right from the book, including "My humble personage bows before your grandeur."
  • In The Avengers (2012), Thor stated that Odin used his dark magic to transport him to and from Earth, as the Bifr?st was destroyed. Audiences now find out the dark magic came straight from Heimdall, as he used it to transport The Incredible Hulk here.
  • The filmmakers wanted every scene to establish more than one thing. The opening scene establishes The Incredible Hulk's journey, a vengeance story for Thor, and the Stone collection plotline.
  • In his fight with The Incredible Hulk, Thanos has one Stone, but doesn't use it. This shows that he is unbeatable in a one-on-one battle, even before the Stones come into play.
  • The filmmakers thought of this movie as Thanos' hero's journey. That way they could figure out how to put everybody in the movie.
  • Originally, there was a scene where we saw Thanos obtain the Power Stone from Xandar. To avoid repetition, it was cut from the script.
  • When Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely started working on the script for this movie, there was no Thor: Ragnarok (2017) script yet, so they didn't know where Thanos would find Loki. There were many drafts of the script with Thanos finding Loki in several different places.
  • The filmmakers redesigned the ship with a different texture from the brightly colored whimsy of Thor: Ragnarok (2017) to show the strong change in tone of this story.
  • The Asgardian ship at the beginning of the movie is the same ship from the ending of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), an example of how directly the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe connect.
  • The filmmakers decided very early on to turn this movie into a "smash-and-grab heist movie" told from the viewpoint of the lead villain, Thanos.
  • Originally, the Soul Stone had been revealed to be a "pearl" color, the biggest Stone, and in the middle of the Gauntlet.
  • The French dub has Tony use "Voldemort" as an insult to Ebony Maw in place of "Squidward". This is likely because Squidward's French name, "Carlo", was too ordinary for audiences to get the joke, and for the joke to work. The same applies to Squidward's German name, "Thadd?us".
  • Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, and Anthony Mackie appeared in What's Your Number? (2011).
  • Josh Brolin and Anthony Mackie appeared in Gangster Squad (2013).
  • Thanos was originally going to walk through a river of his victims' blood during the Soul Stone sequence, but Marvel decided to tone down its darkness.
  • There is a Jumanji (1995) connection with the movie: Scarlett Johnasson auditioned for Judy Shepherd in the 1995 movie, but lost out to Kirsten Dunst, and Karen Gillan played Ruby Roundhouse in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017).
  • Elizabeth Olson and Pom Klementieff appeared in Ingrid Goes West (2017).
  • Tony Stark tells Peter Parker to stop making pop culture references only to, hypocritically, make one himself a couple of scenes later when he calls Star-Lord "Flash Gordon".
  • "Vala" is Xhosa for "close" when the warriors activate their shields, as in close ranks.
  • When Thor tells the Guardians of the Galaxy about The Avengers, Mantis mentions the actor Kevin Bacon, Peter Quill's hero, and Thor says "He might have joined". Kevin Bacon played the Marvel supervillain Sebastian Shaw, antagonist of the X-Men, in X-Men: First Class (2011).
  • When Thor is found adrift in space by the Guardians of the Galaxy, this is not the first time in the Marvel Comics Universe where the Guardians find him, in the Guardians 3000 featuring Star Hawk, Vance Astro, Yondu, Rocket and others come across a frozen Thor floating in space while they are searching for Captain America's shield. He is also alive in the future with Mj?lnir still intact, but frozen for nearly one thousand years.
  • Thor states he is one thousand five hundred-years-old, which gives his birthdate in the year 518 A.D. However, historically the first mention of Thor is (using the method of "interpretatio romana", where characteristics perceived to be similar by Romans result in identification of a Norse god as a Roman or Greek deity, in this case, Thor is equated to Hercules) by the Roman historian Tacitus is the first century (1 A.D. to 100 A.D.), predating the date Thor gave by four hundred years. Presumably though, after this amount of time, it would either be hard to remember exactly how many years you've lived, or it would be unimportant. Thor may have said fifteen hundred years for an "at least" approximation.
  • When Thanos arrives on Titan and Doctor Strange remarks "you're much more of a Thanos". This is a reference to the fact that in the comic books, Thanos' birth name was Dione.
  • Many fans criticize the actions of Peter Quills lack of self-restraint against Thanos when he starts hitting him when he demanded to know Gamoras whereabouts just when Ironman and Spider-Man we're about to get the Infinity Gauntlet off his arm Chris Pratt defended Star-Lords actions when promoting Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

  • The "decoy date" for Pepper Potts and Tony Stark's marriage, August 27th, is the date of Robert Downey, Jr.'s marriage to Susan Levin.
  • This marks the first time two members of the Guardians of the Galaxy come to Earth.
  • Rockets survival was foreshadowed earlier in the film, when Thor asks if Rocket [rabbit] is the captain, to which Rocket sarcastically says he is to spite Quill, foreshadowing the ending when all the Guardians disappear except him ironically making him the captain., and when him and Thor are discussing loss, Thor says something to the effect of having nothing left to lose, and Rocket mumbles (twice),- "I've got some things to lose". Losing all of his friends, -his family, including Groot.
  • Is the only Avengers movie where they don't have the one take "Avengers circle camera angle" like in the previous Avengers movies.

Spoilers

  • This movie was inspired by the following Marvel Comics storylines: The Infinity Gauntlet (Thanos forms the Infinity Gauntlet and becomes all-powerful), The Thanos Imperative (the Guardians of the Galaxy take on Thanos), and Infinity (the Avengers and Inhumans team up to battle Thanos). The Marvel Comics storyline of the same name, however, involved a battle between superheroes for the Infinity Gauntlet, and has nothing to do with this story. This battle happened after the events of The Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Crusade, where in the Infinity Gauntlet, Adam Warlock and his Infinity Watch formed by Gamora, Moondragon, Drax the Destructor, and Pip the Troll, allied forces with Thanos in order to defeat Magus, Warlock's evil side, who was looking to reunite the Infinity Gauntlet to be all-powerful and in the Infinity Crusade, Adam Warlock, The Avengers, Thanos, X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer unite to defeat the Goddess, Warlock's good side, who was looking to convert the entire universe to worship her and control everyone.
  • In the teaser trailer for this movie, shown at a San Diego Comic-Con, the shot seen before transitioning to the title card shows Thanos with a fully assembled Infinity Gauntlet. In Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), we get another look at the Gauntlet in the form of an ethereal image with four Infinity Stones set in their respective positions. With the red, blue, yellow, and purple Infinity Stones revealed and identified as Reality, Space, Mind, and Power, it is safe to assume that the orange gem set in the center of the Gauntlet and the green gem positioned atop one of the knuckles, are the Infinity Stones of Soul and Time respectively. In this movie, however, when Thanos completes the Gauntlet, the Mind Stone is in the center, the Stones of Power, Space, Reality, and Soul are on the knuckles, and the Time Stone is on the thumb.
  • During the post-credits scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Thanos grabs a Gem-less Infinity Gauntlet and says, "Fine, I'll do it myself." An Infinity Gauntlet has been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before, as it can be seen being held in the weapons vault on Asgard in Thor (2011). In a recent interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, he was asked if the post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) was made to fix the continuity error of the Gauntlet being spotted in Thor (2011). He stated "No", as there is in fact more than one Infinity Gauntlet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Gauntlet in Asgard was called a fake by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
  • In Doctor Strange (2016), it was confirmed that the Time Infinity Stone is green and is in the Eye of Agamotto.
  • It had been speculated that the film will conclude the Thanos and the Infinity Stones story arc, and the plot will follow the Avengers joining forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos from destroying the universe with the six Infinity Stones. However, the credits end with the phrase "Thanos will return"
  • As of the release of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), five of the six Infinity Stones have surfaced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Space Stone (also known as the Tesseract) was first revealed in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), and now resides with Loki. The Mind Stone, which was housed in Loki's staff until Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), is now in the possession of Vision. The Power Stone, first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), is on Xandar, under protection of the Nova Corps. The Reality Stone (also known as the Aether) was first seen in Thor: The Dark World (2013), and was placed in the care of The Collector. With the destruction of The Collector's Vault in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), its whereabouts are unclear. The fifth and final known stone, the Time Stone (also known as the Eye of Agamotto), was revealed in Doctor Strange (2016), and is under his protection in Kamar-Taj. The whereabouts of the sixth stone, the Soul Stone, is revealed by Gamora to Thanos in this movie to be on the planet Vormir.
  • Despite his death in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Aaron Taylor-Johnson is rumored to return as Quicksilver.
  • Michael Rooker is listed in the cast as reprising his role of Yondu, despite the character having died in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017). It is unknown if the character will be resurrected at some point in this movie, or the listing was simply meant to not spoil his fate in the previously mentioned film.
  • On June 7
  • Chris Evans will not be Captain America in this film he will be Nomad, Nomad is a character from the comics where Steve Rogers isn't Cap anymore and becomes a man with no country.
  • It was rumored that everyone in this film is supposed to die including Captain America.
  • At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) gets a ring from Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). Happy also states before that he's been carrying around since 2008, the same year Iron Man came out. It is assumed that in this movie, Tony Stark is married to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).
  • The Infinity Gauntlet shown in Thor (2011) has since been said to be a fake because in Thor: Ragnarok (2017) when Hela is walking through the vault she says about the Tesseract that it's not bad, she says that The Eternal Flame is "true power" and she pushes over the Infinity Gauntlet and yells "Fake!" at Skurge.
  • Thor, having lost his hammer Mj?lnir in Thor: Ragnarok (2017), constructs a new hammer known as Stormbreaker in this film. Stormbreaker is named for the Asgardian hammer given to Thor's comrade Beta Ray Bill. It is a war hammer-axe, based on the Marvel Ultimate Mj?lnir.
  • Steve Rogers wields a new shield in this movie, made from Wakandan vibranium, that splits apart into two armguards. This is based on two different shields Rogers wielded in the comic books: one shield was provided by the Black Panther, and the other split apart into two guards.
  • Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bucky Barnes will go by the code name 'White Wolf' in Avengers: Infinity War, as he was referred to by the children of Wakanda in the after credit scene in Black Panther.
  • Idris Elba, Chris Evans, and Zoe Saldana appeared in The Losers (2010).
  • This was the first Avengers movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which Clint Barton (Hawkeye) did not appear. Hawkeye appeared in Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • The 'field' that Thanos was gazing at during the ending, is a rice terraces from the Philippines.
  • Valkyrie does not appear in the movie. It is very likely she was killed at the beginning when Thanos attacked Thor's spaceship, for she was inside at the end of Thor : Ragnarok (2017).
  • There is no mid credits scene (nothing comes after the principal actors names are shown at the end of the movie), unlike most previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Instead, the extra scene comes at the end of all of the credits.
  • Captain marvel's star is shown on nick fury's beeper after he dissapears teasing her arrival into the MCU. Captain marvel (2019)
  • Final appearance of Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the MCU.
  • Contains only one post credit scene.
  • In the after credits nick fury dials for help from a retro beeper the symbol that appears is the captain marvel symbol who is having a debut film in 2019.
  • As of the end, the only member of the Guardians of the Galaxy that survived is Rocket Raccoon.
  • Main character death count: sixteen.
  • First appearance of Red Skull, Hugo Weaving, since Captain America: The First Avenger.
  • The original Avengers never fully re-unite as a team in this movie.
  • Peter Dinklage is best known for his role on Game of Thrones. That series also features an aspiring ruler who sacrifices his own daughter in order to fulfill his ambition.
  • Though featured prominently in trailers, Bruce never fully "Hulks out" in the climax of the movie. His only full Hulk-out is during the pre-credits scene with Thor and Loki.
  • The post credits scene features the deaths of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) by disintegration, and teases the future involvement of Captain Marvel.
  • Bruce Banner gets to wear the Hulk-Buster armor (dubbed "Veronica", in reference to Banner's girlfriend Betty) that was used against him in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • Before the movie was released, there was much fan speculation that either Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) or Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) would die in this movie, since it was known their contracts were not extended past the end of The Avengers series. Ironically, they are two of the very few characters who are not killed. In fact, with the exception of the off-screen Clint Barton/Hawkeye's status unknown, all of the original Avengers featured in The Avengers (2012) are shown having survived at the end of this movie.
  • Captain America's shield does not appear at all in this movie.
  • Hawkeye and Ant-Man are both absent from the movie, but are mentioned.
  • Loki's statement to Thanos of "We have a Hulk", is a call back to Tony Stark saying the same to him in The Avengers (2012).
  • The Red Skull makes his first appearance since 'Captain America: The First Avenger' where he was transported across the galaxy by the space stone. He is shown to be the keeper of the soul stone and allows those worthy enough to take it.
  • The final scene where Thanos is shown coming out of a hut facing the sunset behind rice terraces was shot in the Philippines, courtesy of the Indochina Productions team. Josh Brolin (Thanos) was only edited into the scene through CGI. According to the original comic books, Thanos exiled himself to a faraway land to reflect on his loss and chose to become a farmer, which is adapted by the movie with the Banaue Rice Terraces in Ifugao, the Philippines as Thanos' chosen place.
  • When Gamora and Thanos travel to Vormir to obtain the Soul Stone, they meet the guardian of the gem, who is revealed to be Johann Schmidt (Red Skull). It confirms the seven-years-ongoing fan theory that the Tesseract didn't kill Schmidt at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), but had just sent him off to space. It seems fitting that, as he was consumed by the power of the Space Stone (Tesseract) in that movie, he would be the guardian of the Soul Stone in this movie, being his first appearance since then. However, Hugo Weaving did not reprise his role from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) due to previous reluctance to return to portray the character and the long sessions to apply make-up as well, leading him to be replaced by Ross Marquand .
  • The post-credits sequence shows Nick Fury using a modified Motorola pager to call upon someone right before he is disintegrated in Thanos' plan. The symbol that appears on the pager is that of Captain Marvel, who will get her own story in Captain Marvel (2019).
  • First Avengers movie to not include any appearance of Hawkeye.
  • In the post-credits scene, the logo that appears on the screen of the communications device (8-pointed gold star on a divided red and blue background) is Captain Marvel's.
  • This marks the first time on film that Peter Parker (Spider-Man) dies, with the character starring in eight movies over the course of sixteen years. However, it's confirmed to not be a permanent death, as Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) will take place just a few minutes after Untitled Avengers Movie (2019), as confirmed by Marvel Studios.
  • The first movie in the MCU where the main villain wins at the end.
  • When Dr. Strange is fighting Thanos on Titan, Strange casts a spell where red tendrils envelope the Mad Titan. These are known as the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak, supposedly unbreakable bindings. They're named after the demon Cytorrak whose powers were bestowed on the X-Men's foe Juggernaut after he touched a gem embued with the demon's powers.
  • The philosophy Thanos follows reflects the concerns given in the Malthusianism Theory. According to the theory, overpopulation is a primary source of conflicts and poverty due to a resource shortage. That's why the theory envisions wars, diseases, earthquakes, and other events of mass death or destruction as a way of survival, peace, and prosperity.
  • First and last time we see Peter Quill and Gamora kiss on-screen.
  • With the reveal of the Soul Stone it appears to confirm the T.H.A.N.O.S. theory (all the stones can be traced back to something with an abbreviation that spells out Thanos, i.e. T for tesseract, A for aether, N for necklace, O for orb, and S for scepter) with the Soul Stone being kept guard by Red Skull, also known as Herr Schmidt as he was referred to in WWII.
  • In Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Tony Stark and Peter Parker have a funny moment in a car when Tony leans over and Peter thinks he is hugging him, but he jokes that he's just trying to reach the door handle to let him out. In this movie, when Peter (Spider-Man) is dying, this scene is mirrored when he grabs Tony (Iron Man), and is so frightened that they finally have that hug.
  • In this film Thanos (Josh Brolin) is seen interrogating The Collector (Benicio del Toro) asking him "where is the stone?" The final time he does so in an almost taunting way in order to find out where the reality stone is. Ironically in the movie Snatch (2000) it is Toro's character that interrogates a Jewish jeweler by asking the same question in a taunting tone in order to steal a much sought after diamond.
  • Johann Schmidt/Red Skull was originally played in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) by Hugo Weaving. Despite the character's return in Infinity War, the part was recast and Weaving was replaced by Ross Marquand. This is likely due to Weaving's public disdain for his appearance in the first movie, claiming that the makeup process alone made him unwilling to reprise the role in the future.
  • Continuing with the trend of someone losing an arm in almost every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, Groot cuts off his arm to create the handle for Thor's new weapon.
  • Some shots of the trailers were digitally altered to avoid spoilers. For example, some Infinity Stones are removed from Thanos' glove during the last battle. Or for not showing the destroyed Iron Man's suit, a digital jacket was added to Robert Downey, Jr. Also The Incredible Hulk is shown in a final shot with Captain America, Black Panther, and Black Widow, but The Incredible Hulk only fights in the beginning of the movie.
  • In the movie, there is only one song with lyrics played, and that is "The Rubberband Man" by The Spinners. The song was about Producer Thom Bell's son, who was teased for being overweight. In the movie, Drax and Rocket tease Peter Quill for gaining weight.
  • Just before Thanos vanishes into thin air with Gamora, we get to learn of her true feelings towards Peter Quill. She tells him: "I love you more than anything." And then they're somehow gone.
  • In the final scene, Thanos can be seen sitting on top of the hill. These are the famous rice terraces of the Philippines.
  • Of the twenty-four characters visible on the main poster for the film, twelve live and twelve die. This furthers the concept Thanos has within the movie of bringing balance by killing half the universe.
  • This movie mark the second time Josh Brolin (Thanos) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis) doing fight scene againts each other, the first was in Old Boy (2013). In Addition; Josh Brolin, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) appear in both Old Boy (2013) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
  • During the flashback of Gamora's childhood, Ebony Maw can be heard talking to the people, referring them as "zehobereians". This reveals Zehoberei as Gamora's home planet.
  • At the beginning of the movie, Thanos can be seen with the Power Stone on the gauntlet, implying that he assaulted Nova Corps of the planet Xandar to obtain it. This assault is later confirmed by Thor when he talks with Guardians of the Galaxy. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo explained that they did not include a scene showing Thanos' journey to Xandar to retrieve the Power Stone because they felt like it was self-explanatory, and would only add unnecessary scenes to the movie.
  • When The Avengers regroup at headquarters in New York City, Colonel James Rhodes (War Machine) was the only one who had been there the whole time. This comes to show that, since the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Rhodey was the only member of The Avengers to remain loyal to the Sokovia Accords. Tony Stark (Iron Man) is still a registered Avenger, but regularly defies the Accords, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) was excommunicated for helping Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes escape the Berlin Airport, and The Vision went into exile alongside Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) because of his emotional attachment to her. When The Avengers regroup in this movie, however, even Rhodey was willing to turn against the Accords to assist his former teammates in the greater cause.
  • In How Doctor Strange Should Have Ended (2017), Doctor Strange talks to Batman and Superman about the benefits of being able to use the Time Stone to fix past mistakes, to which Batman and Superman suggest even more ideas of past mistakes to fix; Batman even throws out the idea to use it to save Vision when he has the Mind Stone ripped from his head (referring to what could happen in the future - in this movie). In this movie, however, the exact opposite occurs: After Scarlet Witch destroys Vision to get rid of the stone, Thanos uses the Time Stone to revive Vision so that he can then rip the Mind Stone from his head and thereby complete the Infinity Gauntlet.
  • According to the Russo Brothers, Peter Parker's lines at the end of the film, where he says, "Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good" and "I don't wanna go" before he disintegrates, was improvised on the spot by Tom Holland.
  • The post credits scene contains another Easter egg reference to Samuel L. Jackson outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As he's being wiped from existence, Nick Fury mutters "Motherf-----". Jackson is known professionally for portraying characters who use that expletive profusely, and has a huge cult following as a result. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), "The path of the righteous man: Ezekiel 25:17" can be seen on Fury's grave stone, a reference to a monologue he delivered in Pulp Fiction (1994) as Jules Winnfield, one of his most famous and profane roles.
  • Thanos' mass genocide at the end affects mainly later Avenger members, like Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and the Scarlet Witch. The original Avengers members (Iron Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, and Black Widow) are still alive, with only Hawkeye unaccounted for as he does not appear in this movie. In contrast, the original members of the Guardians of the Galaxy are all wiped out with the exception of Rocket (and Gamora, who had already died earlier).
  • Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) makes a surprise appearance, after having been absorbed by the Tesseract in that film. This led to fan speculation that he might show up again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is not played by Hugo Weaving; although Weaving had signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel, he later indicated that he was not interested in reprising the role, and Marvel apparently did not force him to. Ross Marquand took his place.
  • In the scene on Knowhere as Thanos is standing over the Collector, he speaks the line "Where is the stone?" Which is the same line Benicio Del Toro uses in the opening sequence to the film Snatch.
  • When Thanos clicks his fingers, and different avengers begin to disappear, the only ones left are from the original Avengers film: Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Black Widow.
  • At one point of the movie, Thor, Rocket, and Groot visit a star forge called "Nidavellir", where they meet a dwarf called Eitri (Peter Dinklage). In Norse mythology, Nidavellir is the home of the dwarves, and one of the Yggdrasil's nine realms.
  • In the comics, Thanos is in love with the avatar of death. In the film, he instead sees death as a key to improve life. Thanos himself was named after "thanatos", the Greek god of death.
  • In Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Samuel L. Jackson plays a villain who also wants to save the world by "culling the herd:" i.e. selectively killing a large portion of the word's population.
  • Multiple trailers for the movie featured a shot of The Incredible Hulk running along with other Avengers and Wakandans, but this does not occur in the actual movie. Several instances of Bruce Banner attempting to transform into The Incredible Hulk after his fight with Thanos fail specifically because The Incredible Hulk personality is resisting.
  • The villains repeatedly threaten the heroes with murder of their associates: 1) Thanos threatens to kill Thor if Loki does not hand over the tesseract (Space Stone). 2) The Black Order offer to spare Scarlet Witch if The Vision surrenders and gives up the Mind Stone. 3) Thanos tortures and threatens to kill Nebula if Gamora does not reveal the location of the Soul Stone. 4) As recounted by Eitri, he was forced to forge the Infinity Gauntlet by Thanos under the threat of having his fellow dwarves murdered. 5) Although not explicitly asked to do so by Thanos, Doctor Strange gives up the Time Stone in exchange for Tony Stark's life.
  • Characters having to sacrifice their loved ones include: 1) Star-Lord being forced to shoot Gamora in order to deny Thanos information about the Soul Stone. 2) Thanos having to kill Gamora in order to be granted the Soul Stone. 3) Scarlet Witch being forced to kill The Vision in order to destroy the Mind Stone.
  • Official trailers for this film included a shot from the battle in Wakanda, of several of the heroes leading a charge through some trees with Wakandan soldiers following them. Included in this shot was Hulk. In the movie, Hulk is not present at all in Wakanda. Instead, Bruce Banner remains in human form, and wears Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armour first seen in Captain America: Civil War (2016)Captain America: Civil War. This whole shot is not actually used at all, as the battle takes place on open ground, not in a wooded area.
  • This is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie wherein Captain America and Iron Man appear, but have not shared the same screen together.
  • The scene where Cap and Thanos get up close and personal, and Thanos appears impressed after noticing Cap uses his last ounce of strength to prevent being grabbed by the Infinity Gauntlet is a nod to Infinity Gauntlet Issue #4, where Cap (being among the last heroes alive) walks right up to Thanos and tells him "As long as one man stands against you, Thanos, you'll never be able to claim victory. I've lived my life by those sentiments. They're well worth dying for", upon which Thanos swipes and easily shatters Cap's vibranium shield.
  • After the climatic battle in Wakanda, Thor's fallen Stormbreaker makes a bell toll sound. It is similar to that of London's Big Ben clock tower. Thor: The Dark World (2013) took place partly in London, England.
  • In a response to a fan on Twitter, James Gunn, who was the Executive Producer of this movie, and Director of Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), revealed that Groot's last line at the end of this movie was "Dad", what was said to Rocket Raccoon right before turning into dust.
  • The reason Peter Parker's (Spider-Man's) death took so long was because his Spidey senses made him realize earlier and his accelerated healing slowed it down.
  • With the losses occurred after the events in this movie, the Avengers are reduced to the original team from link=tt0848228 to retake the fight in the upcoming link=tt4154796: Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye.
  • Red Skull returns in his first appearance since "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011)
  • Following his completion of the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos wiped out half the universe's population, including Groot who gave a final line to Rocket before he died. Guardians Of The Galaxy director, James Gunn, stated via Twitter that that final line Groot spoke translated out to "Dad".
  • All major character deaths in chronological order: Heimdall - stabbed by Thanos. Loki - choked to death by Thanos. Gamora - thrown to her death by Thanos is exchange for the Soul Stone. The Vision - killed by Wanda (Scarlet Witch) when she destroyed the Mind Stone. The Vision (again) - killed by Thanos when he ripped the Mind Stone out of his forehead after he reversed time with the Time Stone. The following characters were killed when Thanos wipes out half the universe with the Infinity Gauntlet having acquired all six Infinity Stones: Bucky Barnes (White Wolf), T'Challa (Black Panther), Groot, Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), Sam Wilson (Falcon), Mantis, Drax the Destroyer, Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Dr. Stephen Strange, Peter Parker (Spider-Man).
  • The trailer includes several scenes not shown in the final movie (as usual). For example, early trailers included scenes showing The Incredible Hulk at the battle of Wakanda, despite The Incredible Hulk not being involved with the battle at all. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo noted they intentionally crafted a different experience for the trailers than audiences would get in a finished movie.
  • Exactly half of the heroes credited at the top of the official movie poster (eight out of sixteen) are still alive at the time of the snap, die after the snap.
  • According to codirector Joe Russo, Tom Holland Improvised all of his lines during his final scene of the film.
  • Anthony and Joe Russo confirmed that Valkyrie survived the attack on Thor's ship at the beginning of the movie, and is off somewhere in space with the remainder of Asgard's survivors, unaffected by Thanos' finger snap.
  • James Gunn made one change to the original script. Originally, Peter was not able to bring himself to fulfill his promise to kill Gamora if Thanos captured her. In the final movie, Peter does try to kill her, but is prevented from doing so by Thanos.
  • Thanos' reality bending attacks on Mantis and Drax during the fight on Knowhere are callbacks to a scene in the original comics, where Nebula was transformed into ribbons, and Drax was sliced into cubes.
  • In the original Norse mythology, Loki and Heimdall were fated to die killing one another. In this movie, both characters die within a few minutes of the other.
  • Dr. Strange's comment about being in the end game refers to the point in a chess match where a large number of pieces have been sacrificed.
  • At the end of the movie, Thanos appears on a farm from an unnamed planet. It's a nod for the final of the original comic, The Infinity Gauntlet, where Thanos, after losing the Infinity Gems, he exiles himself and turns into a farmer on an unnamed planet at the edge of the Milky Way.
  • In a flashback, it's revealed that Gamora was adopted when she was a child by Thanos after a genocide he committed on her home planet. In the original comic books, she was created by Thanos using genetic engineering.
  • When he chokes Loki to death, Thanos says "No resurrections this time." This is likely an inside joke referring to how Loki had already faked his death twice: He fell away into space in Thor (2011) only to show up again in The Avengers (2012), and he created the illusion of being stabbed in Thor: The Dark World (2013) so that he could return to Asgard and dethrone Odin. However, this death is real, and is most likely permanent unless something happens in Untitled Avengers Movie (2019).
  • When talking about the rogue members of The Avengers, Secretary of State Thaddeus E. "Thunderbolt" Ross refers to them as criminals, but then Colonel Rhodes refutes him by saying "You know, they're only criminals because you chose to label them as such." Ironically, in Captain America: Civil War (2016), Rhodey was the first to call Captain America a criminal, back when the Sokovia Accords were still fresh.
  • Thanos fulfills the promises he makes. *He spares Thor in exchange for Loki giving up the Space Stone. *He spares Nebula in exchange for Gamora revealing the location of the Soul Stone. *He spares Tony Stark in exchange for Doctor Strange giving him the Time Stone. All three promised lives survive "The Snap".
  • The Russo Brothers confirmed that the characters Betty Ross, Bruce Banner's ex-girlfriend from The Incredible Hulk (2008), Lady Sif from Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013) , the actor portraying Loki in Thor: Ragnarok (2017)), and the man playing Galaga from The Avengers (2012) were among the casualties who were killed by Thanos' finger snap.
  • The Russo Brothers also confirmed that Peter's aunt May and Howard the Duck were unaffected by Thanos' finger snap.
  • In a response to an online question, Executive Producer James Gunn confirmed that the character Kraglin from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) was spared from Thanos' finger snap, hinting that there are future plans for the character.
  • When asked if Korg survived the attack on the Asgardian ship and Thanos' finger snap, the Russo Brothers answered that fans will have to "wait and see", hinting that the fan favorite character is still alive and may play a role in future films.
  • The only time Nick Fury utters Samuel L Jackson's notorious common use of the "f word".
  • With the losses occurred after the events in this movie, the Avengers are reduced to the original team from The Avengers (2012) to retake the fight in the upcoming Untitled Avengers Movie (2019): Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.
  • The ending shot of the film is also a nod to the comics, as Thanos finds peace.
  • There is a parallel between Tony talking about the possibility of having a child in the beginning of the movie, and effectively losing one in the end.
  • In the script, Peter Parker's death wasn't drawn out like it was in the movie. The only written line was "I don't feel so good". The filmmakers wanted more emotion, and Tom Holland's performance is what came out of it. The filmmakers confirmed that Spider-Man's spider-sense helped alert him, and that is part of why his disappearance was more drawn out than it was for others.
  • The filmmakers always knew they wanted to play past the snap in the film, the idea being that if they ended the film ON the snap, it would be a cliffhanger. Instead, the film ends on tragedy and emotion. The film has a full and complete ending, even if it isn't what audiences are used to.
  • The power that it took to use all six stones is significant, and it damaged the Gauntlet, as well as Thanos, permanently.
  • "All that for a drop of blood" underscores the existential statement that the movie makes, in that everything they throw at Thanos, which is everything they have, leads to that one drop of blood.
  • Drax and Mantis being turned into cubes and ribbons by the Reality Stone is a nod to the original comic books, coming directly from a panel.
  • The filmmakers didn't want the Soul Stone to be somewhere audiences already knew, or to have it be random. They chose to have it be a secret for one of the characters, therefore becoming emotional.
  • This is the first Avengers movie where the Avengers' superheroes don't fight against each other. But, we still see another "superheroes versus superheroes" since Thor versus The Incredible Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok (2017), which is Iron Man team (Stark, Dr. Strange, and Spider-Man) versus Star-Lord team (Quill, Drax, and Mantis).
  • WILHELM SCREAM: when the Maw gets blown out of the spaceship.
  • After being hit in the chest by storm breaker, before thanos leaves wakanda green sparks can be seen around his chest suggesting he is using the time stone to reverse the damage done to home by thor
  • When Spider-Man gets his new Iron Spider suit, Tony tells F.R.I.D.A.Y., his AI, to take Peter home. A parachute deploys from the Iron Spider suit, Peter shouts "Oh, come on!" referencing Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), where his parachute was deployed, pulling him from the battle.
  • When Corvus Glaive is killed by the same weapon and manner, in which he tried in Scotland on The Vision, when he first tried to to stop The Vision. The Vision returns the exact same blow in the end that kills Corvus Glaive in the same manner The Vision was attacked , from behind through his chest.
  • Eitri states that Storm Breaker is in theory powerful enough to summon the Bifrost, that means there are two other weapons that may help combat Thanos, The Bifrost Sword, and Odin's Allfathers Staff that Odin welded in his battles as well that Loki used to open the Bifrost in Thor(2011) and Thor used to fight Hela ,cutting her doing damage to Hela in Thor Ragnarok (2017)
  • There's a deleted scene on the Blu-ray copy of the movie that explains why The Guardians are on Titan. In the movie, the last time we see them before the scene on Titan is when they go to Knowhere to get the Reality Stone, only to realize that Thanos already has it and is waiting for Gamora, as she has information on the Soul Stone, and he leaves with her.
  • According to James Gunn, Groot's final line as he disintegrates, "I am Groot", in front of Rocket, translates to, "Dad".
  • The Russo Brothers stated in a podcast interview, that the actual reason why The Incredible Hulk refuses to, "come out", wasn't because he's scared of Thanos, (while he certainly was taken back a bit by being so easily defeated by him in the beginning), but rather The Incredible Hulk simply being tired of Bruce Banner only using him, when he needs him during a battle and refusing so to spite him.
  • When Nat and T'Challa face Proxima Midnight and Cull Obsidian, with Wakanda's force field between them, T'Challa says when the battle is over, what's left will be "dust, and blood". He was not wrong about the dust. Doctor Strange tells Tony before their battle that if it comes down to saving their lives or the Time Stone, he would always pick the Time Stone, he later uses the Stone to look into the future, noting that in the over fourteen million possible futures he saw, there was only one scenario where they win, later during the battle, he sacrifices the Time Stone to save Tony, and right before he's disintegrated by Thanos, he says, "There was no other way". If he's telling the truth in all of these instances, it all points to a long game of that one possible future, being one where he sacrifices the Time Stone first, so that it will ultimately be saved later. One of Drax's first scenes in the movie is a gag where he thinks he can make himself disappear, Ned Leeds' only line in the movie is the entirely accurate, "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!", T'Challa warns Proxima Midnight that "Thanos will have nothing but, "dust and blood", before the battle, Tony Stark provides the blood on Titan, Thanos provides the dust, killing half of the population in the galaxy.
  • At one point, Doctor Strange uses the Time Stone to look ahead and see all possible futures regarding their war with Thanos. This is undoubtedly a tactic he had learned from the Ancient One. In Doctor Strange (2016), she had foreseen all of her own possible futures (which all lead to her death and no further) as well as those of Doctor Strange.
  • Almost every character who has had a fake death, or had been revived from the dead, at some point in the franchise is killed by Thanos in this movie. In the beginning, Loki, who had faked his death in Thor (2011) and again in Thor: The Dark World (2013), was choked to death by Thanos. Later on, Wanda Maximoff sacrificed Vision to destroy the mind stone, but then Thanos used the time stone to revive Vision and then killed him again by ripping out the mind stone. At the end, Bucky Barnes (who fell out of a train and into a snowy canyon in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)), T'Challa (who had been tossed off a cliff by Erik Killmonger in Black Panther (2018)), Groot (who had been blasted apart and then born again in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)), and Nick Fury (who had faked his death in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)) were all killed when Thanos snapped his fingers. In addition (double spoiler for Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)), Janet Van Dyne, who had been rescued from the Quantum Realm after having been lost and assumed gone forever for thirty years, is also not spared from the snap.
  • In a twist on the "losing an arm" trope, Nick Fury lost his right arm last.
  • Total onscreen body count (excluding Gamora's home planet massacre): 36.
