Best and Most Shocking Moments in “Avengers: Infinity War”

***WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD***

I am a major Marvel nerd, so it is safe to say that I was very excited for Avengers: Infinity War. I went with my best friend, who I have seen every Marvel movie of the last four years with. Prior, I said many things like “My whole life has led to this,” or “my body is not ready.” Well, my body was not ready for the emotional rollercoaster that it was. Here are what I think are some of the best and most shocking moments in Avengers: Infinity War.

Best: Loki saying “we have a Hulk”

Shocking: Loki and Heimdall dying so early

Best: When Tony told Ebony Maw to “get lost Squidward”

Shocking: Hulk getting completely destroyed by Thanos

Best: Teenage Groot and his video game

Shocking: Vision’s human form and then being injured

Best: Captain America’s hair and beard *swoon*

Shocking: Peter (Parker) and Tony sneaking onto the spaceship

Best: Thor meeting the Guardians

Me @ Marvel:

While this movie devastated me, there is hope. Captain Marvel was called in the post credits scene (always watch the post credits!), and with Spiderman, Guardians, and Black Panther sequels coming out, we know that can’t actually be dead… we hope, anyway.
