'Avengers-End Game' Releasing this week: Lets revisit the Characters who survived 'Infinity wars' and the ones Debuting in 'End Game'
By the end of Infinity War, Thanos had acquired all the Infinity Stones, making him near invincible. The six powerful stones include the Space Stone, the Mind Stone, the Reality Stone, the Power Stone, the Time Stone and the Soul Stone.
The superheroes who survived at the end of Infinity War include Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Nebula (Karen Gillan), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Rhodey Rhodes/War Machine (Don Cheadle), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper). Rocket was the only one left standing among the Guardians of the Galaxy, the inter-galactic crew of fighters led by Peter Quill that first met the Avengers in Infinity War
Avengers: Endgame will see the entry of some Marvel Cinematic Universe superheroes who had not been a part of the previous Avengers films. Among these is Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). Ant-Man was introduced in 2015 in a solo film, and briefly joined the Avengers crew in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
Also back in action is Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye, who was missing in Infinity War despite featuring in the first Avengers film in 2012 and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Speaking to MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast last year, Joe Russo said, “We have a really interesting story cooked up for both of those characters, and part of that story required that they be under house arrest.”
Another new Avengers inductee is Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), who entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe with her solo film in March. According to the Marvel comics as well as the extended cinematic universe, Captain Marvel is the strongest of the lot.
With so many players in the fray and sky-high stakes, the running length of Avengers: Endgame is a generous 181 minutes. The length might pose problems to viewers outside India, where films are screened without intervals, Producer Kevin Feige has warned.
