MARVEL’S AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk, and Benedict Wong as Wong

One of the most frequent complaints about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that major characters don’t die often enough. No other superhero franchise has had to deal with that complaint. That’s because no other superhero franchise has been successful enough to last for 18 films and counting over 10 years.

I’ve never understood the bloodlust, but in any event, those who crave it will be satisfied in Avengers: Infinity War. At least that’s what Robert Downey, Jr. tells Entertainment Weekly.

“Believe me, I’m tired of every movie, you know, ‘It’s the end! It’s Armageddon! It’s the Be All, End All, Forever!’ And then it’s … not. This one actually is. [Laughs] They’re not kidding. This is a heads-will-roll scenario.”

Is Tony Stark one of those heads? Downey doesn’t want to overstay his welcome by trying to play the role forever.

“I’m definitely a hang up your jersey before they boo you off the court type guy, just because I still have an appropriate fear of embarrassment.”

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also told EW that “People need to be careful what they wish for,” regarding character deaths.
