Death is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Oh, people have died before, but critics aren't totally wrong when they say death is often not a lasting consequence in these movies. Quicksilver and technically the original Groot are the only super-powered people to take a permanent dirt nap, but all of that is promised to change in Avengers: Infinity War. Everyone from the Russo brothers to Robert Downey Jr. is telling fans to get their tissues ready because some fan-favorite characters are going away forever. Obviously, some characters are still bulletproof, but several others can't say the same.
For the purposes of this list, we're only looking at characters that can die in Infinity War. Avengers 4 will surely have its fair share of death, but let's not put the cart before the horse. Lots of actors have contracts ending which means they all have the potential to end up on the chopping block, creating a big sense of unpredictability. Ranked from lowest to highest, these are the seven who seem the most likely to die in Infinity War.
Drax the Destroyer has risen to be a surprise fan-favorite character for his blunt humor and a down for anything performance from Dave Bautista. However, Drax's vendetta against Thanos -- who murdered Drax's family through Ronan -- coupled with his reckless actions put a huge target on Drax's back. His death is very possible. However, I have a hard time believing that any of the main Guardians will get killed off before James Gunn has a chance to wrap up their stories in his own film. The movie is getting billed as "no one is safe," but it's tough to picture Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 without the core five.
The "daughter" of Thanos has a more emotional connection than almost anyone else to Thanos, which doesn't exactly means that she's safe. If anything, it only means that Thanos or the Black Order (Gamora's "siblings") are even more likely to kill her for betraying the family. However, Gamora is Thanos' favorite daughter, and their connection will be explored further via flashback (according to the latest trailer), so Thanos may let her past transgressions slide... for this movie.
