Avengers: Infinity War is going to be the biggest film of the MCU, there is no doubt about that. The story has been teased since Thanos first appeared at the end credits of the first Avengers film. It’s clear that some clues regarding the film were teased in the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
This character was a big part of the Infinity War comics, as well as its more famous predecessor Infinity Gauntlet. Warlock is teased in one of the many after credit scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It seems like he’s being saved for the third Guardians of the Galaxy, rather than the third Avengers movie.
One of the most powerful cosmic beings in the Marvel canon might be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War. During the events of GOTG Vol. 2, Ego lets Star-Lord see Eternity, which could signal an appearance in Infinity War. Thanos has feuded with Eternity in the comics, so seeing this in the big screen could mean big things.
Nebula vs Thanos
At the end of Vol. 2, Nebula leaves Gamora and the rest of the Guardians so she can kill Thanos. There’s a good chance that we will see this battle sometime during Infinity War, which might not end well. Whether she lives through the encounter is unknown, though fans would love to see the two sisters take on Thanos.
Mentioned several times throughout the film, the Kree are a race of imperialistic aliens who have been enemies to Earth. The race is most known for their roles in the popular Avengers story the Kree/Skull War, which was intense. It’s also worth noting that the original Captain Marvel was a part of the Kree and fought Thanos many times.
We see Earth for a moment in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, when Ego is trying to engulf it. Avengers Infinity War could use this as a catalyst for the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to go into space for battle. It’s doubtful that we’ll be seeing this mentioned in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it would be a nice moment.
Avengers Infinity War is slated for a 2018 release, with a sequel immediately coming out in 2019. Marvel films this year include the aforementioned Spider-Man Homecoming and November’s Thor Ragnarok, both of which look excellent. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently showing in theaters.
