Avengers: Infinity War - 10 Ways Thanos Could Be Defeated

9. Quicksilver Comes Back From The Dead

Based on the incredibly dubious foundation of a 4chan "leak", a pretty persistent recent rumour is that Aaron-Taylor Johnson's Quicksilver will make a return in Infinity War.

Now, Quicksilver may have been turned into swiss cheese at the end of Age of Ultron, but Phil Coulson has already proven that death is as cheap in Marvel's films as it is in their comics so the speedster's return definitely isn't completely impossible.

In Infinity War, Thanos' use of the reality-altering Infinity Gauntlet could have the unexpected side-effect of bringing Pietro Maximoff back to life. He could then join the Avengers in their final stand against the Mad Titan and play a large role in that battle, possibly even using his super-speed to snatch the gauntlet right off of Thanos' hand.

It would be suitably ironic for the supervillain obsessed with death to be brought down by someone who had come back to life. He certainly wouldn't see that coming.

That being said, it's probably better is this one didn't happen. Each time a character comes back to life, it gives death a bit less emotional weight. It's certainly not worth it just so that we can have the second best live-action Quicksilver back.


I was just a mild-mannered NCTJ accredited journalist until one day I found out the truth... that I could share my nerdy ramblings with people on the internet! It's just like mumbling to myself on the train, but without all the strange looks.
