To say it will be huge is an understatement

Avengers: Infinity War Box Office Outlook

Infinity War is redefining the ceiling of pre-release buzz for the superhero genre. Following last week’s increase in tracking projections, Fandango reported a few days ago that the massively anticipated semi-finale to the last ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is outselling all MCU titles (dating back to 2015’s Ant-Man) combined through the same point in the pre-sales cycle. Infinity War is well ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and approaching levels similar to those of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Marvel epic’s chances at reaching that latter film’s all-time opening weekend record of $247.97 million are increasingly possible based on current trends.

"We did not forget Hawkeye" is not an answer.

Do you really want to know what happens to Hawkeye?
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
He has a character arc in Infinity War and becomes Ronin during the movie. The actors contract is up though (as are several others) so expect several deaths in the two part movie.

Potential spoilers for Avengers Infinity War

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
The first part of the movie (its split into two parts) ends with a funeral. And no Hawkeye is not dead. He's there at the funeral as Ronin with other characters from the movie.

Iron Man saves Spider-Man during the first part of the movie.

Thanos is too powerful in battle - for everyone. Several are killed including Black Widow.

Just how big in scope is Avengers Infinity War?
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Well to put it bluntly, several of the big characters are killed off in the first part. While the CGI scenes are epic in scope, its the death of quite a few characters (big name characters, at that) which will shock audiences. At last count there are at least five deaths that will be in Avengers Infinity War (first part of the movie)

during Avengers Infinity War. Just the chance of seeing these beloved characters in battle one last time will pull in huge audiences.

I know about the deaths that are hinted at but we all know they will most likely be undone down the road.

It's pretty much the whole point of a macguffin with unlimited ultimate power, and the central plot point of Infinity Gauntlet. And if you really think Marvel is going to end this era of their movie universe, the one that has gained unprecedented amounts of money, is about to effectively erase all the business mistakes they made with their properties in Hollywood decades ago, and literally changed how movies are made, with anything other than a happy ending, you just aren't paying attention.

It's deaths in Infinity War, returns in whatever Avengers 4 is called.

Exactly. Plus even if they say that certain actors' contracts are up, all they have to do is renew them or recast certain characters with different actors like what they do in the James Bond movies. What I am more concerned with is how they are going to integrate the Fox properties into the MCU as I am theorizing they will use this Infinity War thing to reboot the X and FF characters into the main universe.

Are you right? Well,

time travel is involved (though the Russo brothers are remaining quiet about that) but the funeral leads to a rebirth for some of the characters.

Avengers Infinity War. What to expect

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
It the most ambitious superhero movie of all time. So ambitious that it encapsulates all of the Marvel movies to date and has major changes for the characters moving forward.

The basics, Thanos who is 9 feet tall (an alien) wants several powerful artifacts called the Infinity Stones. He's busy at the beginning of the movie so he sends other aliens called The Black Order to retrieve them. This sets up the various factions of superheroes who assemble in teams to stop them.

Marvel realizes they have a villain problem but that should be a moot topic after Thanos and the death of several major characters (Black Widow, Thor, Drax just to name a few). In the first part Thanos is all powerful and the movie ends on a sour note with the Avengers in ruins and the surviving characters distraught at the deaths and how to beat Thanos. But is there a way to do that? Well, one of the Russo brothers teases "you need to look at the emotional and physical life" of how to make those characters (Thanos) crack.

Joe Russo says "Let's frame the movie, Infinity War, this way - if the last ten years of the Marvel Universe was a book, these would be the final chapters." He's not joking - Infinity War is going to be the most brutal MCU movie to date but the movie does set up the future Marvel Universe with new characters, characters spinning off into new characters and new worlds to explore.

If this movie doesnt pass $2 billion, joining the ship that lives on and on Titanic and Avatar, I'm not sure what will. Its got a huge cast list, and pretty much some of the most popular actors in Hollywood plus it then
