The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Posters Are Extra Sad With The Dead Characters’ Final Words From ‘Infinity War’


The initial joyous rush of the Avengers: Endgame character posters was quickly deflated by the realization that, oh right, Spider-Man is dead. Black Panther, too, and Doctor Strange, Shuri, and Star-Lord. Sixteen of the 32 superheroes deemed poster-worthy by Marvel are no longer with us following the events of Infinity War, but the fallen will be avenged — and they’ll probably come back to life in Endgame, anyway. Until then, Twitter user @astrocastiels paid tribute to the dead by adorning “their last words” onto the character posters. They are:

The Winter Soldier: “Steve?”
Doctor Strange: “There was no other way.”
Spider-Man: “I’m sorry.”
Black Panther: “Up, general, up! This is no place to die.”
Groot: “I am Groot.”
Nick Fury: “Mother…”
Gamora: “No.”
Star-Lord: “Oh, man.”
Shuri: “I’ve barely begun, brother.”
Loki: “You will never be a god.”
Mantis: “Something’s happening…”
Vision: “I love you.”
Scarlet Witch: “No!”

Truly poignant final words from Groot. Anyway, in a recent interview, co-director Joe Russo discussed the differences between Infinity War and Endgame, outside of Spider-Man’s hair. “I will say that the movie is definitely unique in tone,” he explained to Box Office Pro. “It has its own spirit that’s different than Infinity War, which is why I was keen for us to separate the movies. It’s different tonally than Infinity War, and it is told from a different point of view. It was important for us in our minds as film directors to separate those two, because we do not want to make the same movie twice, and ways that you can differentiate films are through tone and point of view.”

Avengers: Endgame opens on April 26.
