A Complete List of Who Lives and
Dies in Avengers: Infinity War
You expected superheroes to die in Avengers Infinity War You probably didn’t expect so many
superheroes would perish by the end of the
The Russo brothers, who directed the film, let
audiences know early on that no character was
safe: fan favorite Loki is killed off in the first
few minutes, Other characters met an ugly fate
throughout the movie at the hands of Thanos
and his minions, including Gamora (more on
that later) But it wasn’t until the very end of
the film that heroes begin to disappear —
Thanos fulfills his plan to destroy half of all
life in the universe, and with the snap of his
fingers, people being to disintegrate. But are
they really gone? Probably not. Black Panther
just broke every record at the box office , and
Disney is eager to make a sequel, A second
Spider-Man is already in the works. And
Marvel has confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
3 will hit theaters in 2020.
How then will the remaining heroes bring all
these characters back? Note that all the
members of the original Avengers team — Iron
Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black
Widow and (presumably) Hawkeye — survived
Thanos’ attack. Presumably they will unite one
last time in Avengers 4 next year to reverse the
In the meantime, here is a full list of Avengers:
Infinity War deaths and of those who survived.
Here’s who died in Avengers:
Loki: Turns out Loki (Tom Hiddleston) wasn’t
such a bad guy after all, In the opening scene
of the movie, Loki hands over the Tesseract to
Thanos (Josh Brolin) to save Thor’s (Chris
Hemsworth) life, Loki offers fake fealty to
Thanos and then immediately tries to
assassinate the evil alien, Thanos doesn’t buy
Loki’s trick and quickly murders him. Thanos
quips, “No resurrections this time” after killing
the trickster god, who has seemingly died twice
before in the film series.
Heimdall: Thanos and his children murder
Thor’s best friend Heimdall (Idris Elba) when
they invade Thor’s ship, But before he dies, the
Asgardian opens up a gateway to Earth for the
Hulk to escape, Thor cries out when Heimdall
perishes, and swears that Thanos will die for
his actions. He does sort of avenge Heimdall
later by stabbing Thanos, but unfortunately
Thanos is already invincible at that point.
Gamora: Thanos travels to a planet with his
adopted daughter Gamora (Zoe Saldana).
There, they encounter Red Skull, the baddie
from Captain America: The First Avenger who has
been cursed to guard the Soul Stone. Red Skull
tells Thanos that he will have to sacrifice
something he loves in order to get the Soul
Stone. Despite taking a commanding lead in the
World’s Worst Dad competition, Thanos
apparently loves Gamora — just enough to
throw her over a cliff. Gamora dies and Thanos
walks away with another Infinity Stone.
Don’t mourn yet though: If the Avengers find a
way to reverse all that Thanos has done, they
may be able to bring Gamora back. And who
better to finally kill the villain in the end?
Vision: Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) destroys
the Infinity Stone inside Vision’s (Paul Bettany)
head to keep it from Thanos. But Thanos uses
the Time Stone to turn back time and restore
the stone and Vision. He then crushes Vision’s
head in his hands and takes the Infinity Stone.
Vision is left lifeless on the ground.
