As any fan will tell you, 2018 is set to be an incredibly important year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only is it the second year in a row where we are getting three different blockbusters -- including Ryan Coogler's Black Panther and Peyton Reed's Ant-Man & The Wasp - but in May we will be seeing the release of the biggest comic book team up movie of all time: The Avengers: Infinity War. Given everything that's come before, there is a whole lot of anticipation from these films, and with that anticipation comes a whole lot of expectation.

Obviously there are many, many things that we are hoping to see in Black Panther, The Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man & The Wasp, but there are nine major things in particular that we will specifically be waiting on. It's those nine moments that I've written about in this feature, so read on, and hit the comments section at the bottom with your own input on the matter.

Tony Stark Avengers Infinity War Marvel Studios

At Least One Major, Game-Changing Hero Death

In the last decade, Marvel Studios hasn't shown any qualms about killing off notable villains, but they certainly have been much more protective of their heroes. With the exception of Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver, who was both introduced and died in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, every adventure has ended with every established protagonist's heart still beating. Part of this is certainly that they wanted to make sure the character was still around for The Avengers: Infinity War -- but now that we've reached that point, it's time for someone to go.

It should be noted that we're expecting 2019's Avengers 4 to be just as epic as The Avengers: Infinity War, meaning that Joe and Anthony Russo can't exactly wipe the slate totally clean this point -- but that doesn't mean at least one major character can't bite the bullet. Knowing that anyone may die at any time adds extreme stakes, and May will be the time to establish those. Right now we can't necessarily say who it is that will find their time is up, but we fully expect that 2018 won't end without the legitimate death of a major MCU player.
