As the title indicates, this story is a consideration of things after seeing Avengers: Infinity War. If that isn't you, then these will be major SPOILERS. Do yourself a favor and come back after you've seen the movie.
Avengers: Infinity War was everything that we expected it to be and more. It was a movie on an epic scale that has shaken the Marvel Cinematic Universe to its core. As such, we have a lot of questions.
Odds are we'll be asking questions about Avengers: Infinity War until Avengers 4 comes out a year from now, but until then, here are the biggest questions that we have about the latest entry in the MCU.
Where Did Valkyrie Go?
At the end of Thor: Ragnarok we see Thor, Hulk, Loki, Heimdall and Valkyrie along with the rest of the Asgardians on board a ship when, in that film's post-credits sequence, they are approached by another large spacecraft. In the opening moments of Avengers: Infinity War it is confirmed that the ship belongs to Thanos. All of the previously named characters appear in the scene, with one exception. Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) is nowhere to be found. We don't see her fighting but we also never see her body. Is she alive? We know that Thanos left half the Asgardians alive, but if she isn't dead, why didn't she fight?
There were a lot of questions about Hawkeye going into Avengers: Infinity War. As it turns out, those questions were quite warranted, as Clint Barton never appeared on screen in the movie. We're told in the movie that he, like Ant-Man Scott Lang, is under house arrest, but are we really to expect that Clint sat on the sidelines? We were told he'd retired in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but that didn't stop him then, so why did it now? It's a safe bet that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is still alive, as removing him off-screen seems unlikely, especially since every other member of the core team from The Avengers survived. What does the future have in store for our favorite archer?
