At the end of the events of Avengers: Infinity War, there are was a lot to unpack. For most viewers, nothing but questions flooded their minds as half the universe vanished at the snap of a finger and the Mighty Avengers were defeated at the hands of a purple giant.
In the shuffle, one very important question was not asked and I am here to answer it: Where are all the surviving major characters (and Thanos) are located at the end of Infinity War?
It may sound obvious, but the answer is more complicated than you may think. There are a lot of characters that were a part of Avengers: Infinity War and will be a part of Avengers 4. Thus the list is pretty long. I re-watched Avengers: Infinity War and combined it with all of the other information available, such as the events of Ant-Man and the Wasp and the few details we have of Captain Marvel, to place the whereabouts of the remaining major players for Avengers 4. This will help us better gauge where and when the Avengers’ plan to undo Thanos’ reign of terror will begin because it has to start somewhere.
Here is the location of every major character at the end of Infinity War.
- Captain America
- Bruce Banner
- Black Widow
- Rocket Racoon
- War Machine
After the climatic battle in Infinity War, most of the Avengers were left in a deserted forrest in Wakanda trying to grapple with seeing half of their friends disappear into ash. At some point we imagine they will come together and try to brainstorm a plan to bring back the fallen people and a way to stop Thanos from continuing his plan. This will likely incorporate meeting up with some of the other characters on this list, however that may happen.
- Iron Man
Iron Man was left alone with Nebula on Thanos’ destroyed home planet of Titan. Doctor Strange gave him a stern warning and they are in the end game, but he doesn’t know what that means or how they will get off the planet. Luckily, this should entail an adventure with Nebula, which should be hilarious.
At the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang is left stranded in the Quantum Realm while conducting an experiment trying to collect more quantum energy. It perfectly set up the use of the Quantum Realm to travel back in time and stop Thanos from ever realizing his plan. How this will happen, we may have a good idea.
During Infinity War, it is revealed Hawkeye left the Avengers and took a house arrest plea after Captain America: Civil War to protect his family. However, seeing as he’s supposed to play a major role in Avengers 4 and the likelihood that his family turned into dust, he will be ready for some payback.
- Captain Marvel
Last we saw Thanos, he was contemplating his accomplishment on some remote planet. We have no idea where this planet is, though some have theorized it to be either within the Soul Stone or on Gamora’s home planet. As for Captain Marvel, she is in some distant part of space from what we know. When her standalone movie debuts in March, we should learn more about her whereabouts. What we do know is that she was paged by Nick Fury and will be along shortly.
