The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to change in a big way after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 but what comes next remains to be seen. During a recent chat with Vanity Fair, Anthony Russo was quick to point out that he and his brother are "not participating in any thought whatsoever about what happens after these movies" but that doesn't mean they're not shaping what comes next. In fact, the filmmakers are well aware that they can bring some stories to an end in these movies.

As a result, their plans are going to include some big character deaths. "So we know who we’re allowed to kill, and that’s about it. I don’t even think Marvel had any ideas about where they would go after [3 and 4]. It’s not an end for all of these characters; it’s an end for some of these characters. So some of these characters will go on. So it’s more complicated, that’s why it’s not a clean ending."

While it's obviously going to be a shame to say goodbye to everyone from Captain America to Iron Man and Black Widow, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn believes it's about time that Marvel brings a permanent end to some heroes in order to prove that this world does have stakes. 
 
"I think part of that is also the natural evolution of the series. You can’t keep making movies that are too similar. You can’t make the same movie over and over again. If Marvel is going to survive, they have to start making movies with characters who are a little different. They have to start allowing characters to die. They have to start having stakes really mean something if they want people to stay interested." That's a fair point but death is a lot more permanent than just rebooting with a new actor!
