  • Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has a new look for this film. At the end of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Steve Rogers quit as Captain America, something which occurred several times in the comic book. The first time, he assumed the identity Nomad. Rogers' costume captures basic elements of the Nomad character, in that it is primarily blue, and features yellow, disk-like objects attached at the collar. The second time Steve Rogers quit, he was featured to have grown scraggly with a beard, and 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.

Spoilers

  • This film is 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 Time and Soul respectively.
  • 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 Kevin Fiege, 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 infinity 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 it's in the Eye of Agamotto.
  • 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), and now is in the possession of Vision. The Power Stone, first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), is under control 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 unknown, and may appear in Black Panther (2018) or this movie.
  • 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 Incredible Hulk has slowly decreased the time between his appearances throughout the twenty-first century, by one year fragments. Eric Bana's Hulk was made in 2003, with the franchise being rebooted five years later with The Incredible Hulk (2008), starring Edward Norton. Four years later, the part was re-cast with Mark Ruffalo now taking over the role in The Avengers (2012). Three years later, Ruffalo reprised his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), with him then again reprising it in Thor: Ragnarok (2017). One year later, he appeared in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). His appearances in 2003, 2008, 2012, 2015, 2017, and 2018 all decrease one year in between appearances.
  • It has been confirmed in the official trailer of Avengers Infinity War, Spider-Man most likely developed a spider-sense ability.
  • 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.
  • Steve Rogers wields a new shield in this film, made from Wakandan vibranium, that splits apart into two armguards. This is based on two different shields Rogers wielded in the comics: one shield was provided by the Black Panther, and the other split apart into two guards.
