Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War throughout.
Avengers: Infinity War was a movie that promised devastation, consequences and finality, and it absolutely delivered on each of those fronts.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is often quite happy-go-lucky, and the endings to its movies usually leave viewers with a feeling of hope, Infinity War has rattled the Avengers and shaken the MCU to its core.
As sequel setups go they don't get much better than this, and next year's Avengers 4 now has a hell of a lot to accomplish. Not only does it have to rectify that small problem of half the universe disappearing in a cloud of dust, it has to give some of its characters a fitting end, while setting up others to continue on in future sequels.
