Because that's the Infinity Gauntlet. This is what happened in the comics (which some small artistic license by the filmmaakers). I feel like if both parts were shown together, your gripe wouldn't exist because it would just be part of the story instead of the anti-climactic (predictably resolved) "cliff hanger." I get that its not really a cliff hanger when we all know how it ends, but, frankly, I've walked into almost every Marvel movie knowing, generally, how it was going to end. That's what happens when you even loosely follow the comics.

The intrigue for me wasn't and isn't IF they will come back.. but HOW?
Even my 10 year old knew they weren't dead... they just vanished and faded away. It's not like there were corpses laying around. Where were they? and how were they going to be brought back? were they questions being asked.

And at what cost? Like I said before... I think there will be some sacrifices made in order to bring everyone back.

Yeah that quote by Thanos early in the movie about balance seems big. There will likely be sacrifices on one side of the Avengers to bring back those who are lost. Everyone who faded away is safe. Everyone who is alive is in danger.

Gamora, Heimdall, Vision, & Loki are dead though. Should be.

Thanos was AWESOME. Best villain in all the Marvel movies I've seen. Thanos was so much fun to watch.

Two Different Perspectives:

SPOILERS----------------------------------

If you look at Infinity War through the heroe's perspective, it feels incomplete. BUT...

If you look at Infinity War though Thanos' perspective, it feels so satisfying. Thanos is basically the "hero" of the movie, and he won, and he got the "sunset" ending he wanted. Marvel made a villain movie, with the villain winning.

I love it.


I want to rewatch it with this perspective.

I think they'll find a way to save Gamora. Not sure if you saw the confirmation from the directors, but apparently there's a pocket dimension within the Soul Stone itself where all the souls (that Thanos took at the end) of the disintegrated people went. That's also where he was last shown with the child version of Gamora. So if she's there, can't she potentially be brought back like we expect the others to be?

If you ask me, its kinda predictable, i think in the next one *or the next two ones, they will find a way to defeat thanos and get the stones back where they belong, but thats just my guess

Chris Pratt confirmed he'll be back as starlord. Pretty much confirmed that all the people who "disappeared" will be back.


He needs to sign a NDA with Michael Cohen.

Finally watched it.

Was entertained but annoyed with the ending (though realizing that there was 0% chance that the disappeared were gone forever).

I mean, Black Panther/Spidey are such cash cows. No way they end that billion $ cash cow.

My girlfriend took me to watch it, never seen any avengers movies and very few marvel movies but I thought it was pretty good, entertaining and well made. I guess I gotta watch the next one now.

Solid movie. I think Iron Man will bite the dust in Avengers 4. Maybe Captain America too. Everyone else will probably be alright.

I don't think Cap or Tony will die. I feel they'll fall into the Hawkeye role after Avengers 4.

The most bad ass thing they could do is give the Iron Man role to Gwyneth Paltrow. Let Bucky take over the mantle of Captain America. After that, start integrating the fantastic four.
