There were plenty of things we were left to wonder about at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

Will the heroes return from the dust? Why did Doctor Strange hand over the Time Stone? Why, oh why, did Thor not just kill Thanos when he had the chance?

And why did Thanos not kill off the Avengers when he had taken the Infinity Stones from him?

The Mad Titan had opportunity to take down his foes after obtaining the Infinity Stones from them on Titan and in Wakanda, but instead of killing them, he teleports away.

L to R: War Machine (Don Cheadle), Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson), Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Black Panther/T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman)

Why did he not just eliminate any future opposition.

Well, the head of visual development at Marvel Studios has an explanation for that.

Ryan Meinerding said: The plan of getting all the Infinity Stones is putting him in the position of being so powerful that he is sort of calmer, more single-minded, and more reasonable.

He is not necessarily worried about killing the heroes. As long as he ends up with the stones, he can accomplish what he wants to.

And that he did. At the end of Infinity War, armed with the completed Infinity Gauntlet and thus all the power in the universe, Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of the universe.

This led to the elimination of heroes including Spider-man, TChalla, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange and Winter Soldier.

However, fans expect these heroes to be brought back in Avengers 4 with the use of the Quantum Realm.

It has been confirmed that this will play a key role in the blockbuster, and with Scott Lang suspended there, Ant-Man could have a part to play in saving the day.

Avengers 4 is out April 2019.

Marvel Studios

Fresh off the 90s superHERo awesomeness of the new Captain Marvel trailer, Brie Larson flew into (not literally, obviously) Brazils Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Sao Paulo to talk about the forthcoming Marvel Studios film.

Larson participated in a panel and also shared footage and an extended trailer from the comic book flick with the packed audience. But if youre looking for that footage, you probably not going to find it because it was exclusive to CCXP.

However, the Academy Award-winning actress tweeted a video of the crowd which was massive. “Look at these gorgeous humans feeling all the feels with me after watching exclusive footage from #CaptainMarvel,” she wrote.

In addition, Marvel Studios tweeted out a new Captain Marvel poster which is exclusive to CCXP. It features Larson in full Captain Marvel regalia and gives off some serious comic book HERo vibes.

Captain Marvel brings us back in time to the 1990s before all of the events we have seen in the MCU. The movie is an all-new adventure that follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Larson) as she becomes one of the universes most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

The film stars a mix of familiar and new faces in the MCU including Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, with Annette Bening, with Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

Captain Marvel opens in theaters March 8, 2019.
