6. What Is The Avengers' Plan?

The Question: We know that The Avengers are plotting to eliminate Thanos and stop him destroying half the universe, but how exactly do they plan to do that?

Prediction: The trailers have made it pretty clear that Cap and Iron Man's Avengers factions are divided, which could either be a product of lingering distrust between the two, or simply part of a "divide and conquer" strategy.

Either way, the goal is certainly to keep Thanos from acquiring all of the remaining Infinity Stones, and perhaps even to use whichever ones they can against him. Doctor Strange operating the Eye of Agamotto is a distinct possibility, though if some mainline Avengers die at the end of this film, that could very well be saved for the sequel.

Given the likelihood that Infinity War will conclude with Thanos towering over a crumbled team of superheroes, it may very well turn out that the Avengers simply didn't have a solid plan to begin with - hence that comical exchange between Stark and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) - requiring both Avengers factions to team up in Avengers 4 to successfully repel Thanos.
