Avengers: Infinity War is a 2018 film, and seventh in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Three. It was produced by Marvel Studios, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film was directed by Anthony & Joe Russo, from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, with both teams having worked together on Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.

Its scale is both grander and tonally different than The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron (which were both written and directed by Joss Whedon), being a culmination of what Marvel Studios celebrates as a ten year journey bringing together various different aspects and threads from several different film series across eighteen different films for the biggest crossover event in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Mentioned-only characters


  • Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders are uncredited as Nick Fury and Maria Hill, respectively.
  • Some of the film's plot and tone wasn't even written in the earliest drafts, with most of it being changed due to how Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther turned out, as they were being developed and/or filmed at the same time.
  • The film continues moments after the mid credits scene of Ragnarok.
    • A lot of Thor's arc comes from Ragnarok, such as the death of his father and mother, his new look, and lose of his eye.
  • Meredith Quill's death happened in Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Star-Lord had to kill Ego, his father, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
  • Rogers, Wilson, and Romanoff went on the run due to not signing the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War.
    • Barnes and Lang have been put under house arrest, the latter's shown in Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was released directly after Infinity War.
  • There is some awkward tension when Banner reunites with Black Widow, as they had an affair during Avengers: Age of Ultron.
  • Vision was created by the combination of the J.A.R.V.I.S. A.I. being fused with the Mind Stone embedded in a synthetic body made of Vibranium, which were supposed to be for Ultron, in Age of Ultron. Ultron was destroyed in said film.
  • Barnes had been put in a Wakandan cryogenic chamber in Civil War, until his Hydra brainwashing could be removed, which is revealed to have succeeded in the post credits scene of Black Panther.
    • Barnes lost his arm due to Hydra experimentation and replaced it with a cybernetic one with their insignia on it, which he had removed before going into suspended animation.


  • This is the first time Peter's spider-sense is shown in the MCU.
  • Spider-Man's web shooters have been upgraded so they can instantly appear around his wrist in a similar fashion to Stark's armor.
  • Rocket's penchant in taking other people's cybernetic appendages is continued when he gives Thor a new eye and wants Barnes's arm.

Cultural references

  • When first meeting Ebony Maw, Tony calls him Squidward, a character from the cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants. Although in the French dub, he calls him Voldemort, the villain of the Harry Potter book/movie series.[1]
  • Peter references Alien.
