Here it is – the grand finale to the superhero franchise that defined a whole generation of blockbusters. Moviegoers thought they were going to get a definitive end last year with “Avengers: Infinity War,” but then the evil Thanos, played by Josh Brolin, procured the powerful Infinity Gauntlet, snapped his fingers and half the cast died.

It was hard to believe that Marvel Studios would kill off so many popular characters, and even harder to believe that they’d let those characters stay dead.
