“Avengers: Infinity War” changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a huge way, as Thanos accomplished his goal after collecting all of the Infinity Stones, and he wiped out half the life in the universe.
The Mad Titan acquired the Reality Stone from The Collector who was keeping it safe in Knowhere, and fans saw Thanos attack The Collector in an illusion that he created using the stone.
We weren’t given confirmation on the character’s status one way or another, but Benicio Del Toro recently told CinemaBlend that he thinks The Collector is alive.
“I think he’s alive,” Del Toro answered. “Yeah… I think that, you know, I think he’s alive. You’re talking to him!”
There was a lot of hype leading up to “Infinity War” and the majority of people who saw the film seem to think that it delivered.
Due to the film’s ending, it’s safe to say that there will be even more hype leading up to the release of “Avengers 4” in May of 2019.
