Avengers: Infinity War hides some secrets in full view, more than meets the eye. Some of these can give us clues about what will happen in Avengers 4 and how they will solve what was perpetrated by Thanos. These are the three biggest mysteries behind the movie.
Ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are the prelude to one of the most successful films in history – the fourth, to be exact – and the most successful superhero film: Avengers: Infinity War .
Not only that, it is also one of the most successful films in the history of some countries, including regions in Latin America and Europe. Such a successful production is destined to be analyzed and shredded down to the last detail, to raise doubts and theories among fans and the general opinion.
But some of the biggest secrets and mysteries of Avengers: Infinity War are hidden in plain sight , but maybe going unnoticed by the immense amount of things that happen all the time or maybe because the directors wanted it, to be in a long conversation between fans, to really understand what happens.
These are the three best kept secrets of Infinity War . It is worth remembering that the spoilers start then , so, without you have not seen the movie, do not continue reading.
1. Gamora is trapped in ‘Soul World’
The death of Gamora was one of the most significant in Infinity War because it is one of the few moments that shows the more human side of Thanos : who lets know that he had true love for her, but that he is willing to kill her to obtain a of the Gems of Infinity . It is a moment that makes the character complex and at the same time puts the audience in a compromising situation, generating empathy for a villain that aims to end half of life in the entire universe.
Once it happens, once he snaps his fingers, he sees himself in an ethereal place where Gamora is as a child. That place is ‘Soul World’, a reality that exists within the Soul Gem, where she is trapped and could be one of the keys to her return in Avengers 4 .
2. Bruce Banner / Hulk
During virtually all Avengers: Infinity War , Bruce Banner is unable to transform into a Hulk. In the comments of the directors in the digital edition of the film, it is revealed that it has nothing to do with the “shame” of not having beaten Thanos, but that he is simply fed up with being the “strong guy” that appears every time they need it.
But that could change thanks to Shuri who survived Thanos’ crack and has revealed himself to be the brightest mind in the Marvel Cinematic Universe . A theory that has become popular enough theorizes about the possibility that it combines the mind of Banner and Hulk to solve the “problem”.
In fact, during Infinity War, Shuri herself asked Banner why he did not do exactly that with Vision and part of the filtered promotional art of Avengers 4 -then confirmed- shows the Hulk in battle clothes, something not usual in the character.
3. The controversial decision of Dr. Strange
This is the best kept secret of Infinity War and part of the key to what will happen in Avengers 4 : Dr. Strange not only observes 14,000,605 possible futures and determines that in only one he defeats Thanos, but when the moment arrives, he delivers the Time Gem to the titan.
The key is the last words pronounced by the doctor before becoming ashes due to Thanos’s crack : “There was no other way”, that is, until that moment, I felt that everything was going according to the plan, which we will not have clear until Avengers 4 opens .
In addition, there has been much theorizing about the way in which Strange delivers the Gem of Time : shining, which means that it is being used at that moment. In addition, Thanos is unable to take it with his hands, but manipulates his aura. It is speculated that this can travel by itself back and forth in time, key to be used later and beat the crazy titan.
