There were a lot of shocking deaths in Avengers: Infinity War, with many anticipating Avengers 4 so that they can see if these heroes will be coming back. Some of them will obviously return like Spider-Man or the Guardians of the Galaxy, while others are a bit more uncertain. It turns out that Marvel executive Nate Moore tried to convince The Russos not to kill one particular hero.

Who was the character? According to an interview with the Huffington Post, it's the King of Wakanda himself; Black Panther.

It's fair to say that T'Challa's sudden death after Thanos snapped his fingers was a surprise to everyone. The character had just debuted in Captain America: Civil War and starred in his first solo movie last February, so the fact that he was one of the heroes who disappeared caused a lot of audience members to freak out.

Moore said that he urged them to reconsider the move but eventually gave in since he was convinced that it would make for good storytelling.

"I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider. But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in that film, and I hope to see how they're going to resolve that."

Since T'Challa's disappearance, there has been a lot of chatter about having the next Black Panther film focus on its female characters. Whether it's due to him staying dead or getting banished if he's brought back to life is still unknown.
