This April, everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building towards for the last decade will finally culminate in the form of the biggest superhero blockbuster of all time, Avengers: Infinity War.

Naturally, a cinematic behemoth of this grand scale means there’ll be casualties, and we here at Epicstream decided to weigh in on whom we think will live and who will die. Check out our picks below:

1Ant-Man – Lives

Feature Detail

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters just two months after Avengers: Infinity War, so it wouldn’t make sense for Marvel Studios to kill off Ant-Man in the latter. If nothing else, it would undermine any of the emotional impact of his death to see him on the big screen again so soon afterward. 

2Black Panther – Lives

Feature Detail

The character whose solo movie just crossed $1 billion at the global box office? Yeah, you’d better believe he’s safe. Of course, even if he hadn’t just joined the billion-dollar club, Black Panther fills a significant cultural void that’s existed in the MCU for years, so it would be counterproductive to take him off the playing field.

3Black Widow – Lives

Feature Detail

If it wasn’t just recently announced that a solo Black Widow film was in the works, the odds might not have been in her favor to make it out of Infinity War alive. However, Marvel wouldn’t want to incur the fan backlash after announcing a long-awaited project featuring its most prominent female character and then killing her off.
