“A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
Looking over this synopsis, a few things stand out. For one, the MCU has an impressive number of films under its belt. The massive franchise kicked off in 2008 with Iron Man, and it will culminate with Avengers 4 after more than 20 films. The vague description also teases a “turning point” will come for the heroes as they begin understanding the fragility of their reality. Most daunting of all is the blurb’s mention of sacrifices. It seems the lives Thanos took in Avengers: Infinity Warwon’t be the only ones lost in the MCU, and those who are going out could easily be one of the MCU’s original heroes.
