Every Character Confirmed to Have Faded Away in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Avengers: Infinity War might not have had the happy ending a massive Marvel team-up film fans would have expected it to have, but it beautifully set up the next Avengers film for 2019, where Earth's mightiest heroes will have to rally together to defeat Thanos after he wiped out half of all life in the universe. 


Below, you'll find a list of every character who's been confirmed to have bitten the dust when Thanos snapped his fingers using the Infinity Gauntlet.

16. Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier

Captain America might have been frozen in ice since the '40s, but at least he wasn't brain-washed and turned into a killer by Russia when he woke up. Bucky Barnes' life has been full of strife, but renewed by Shuri in Wakanda, he was back to his old self in 'Infinity War' right before fading away into dust.

15. Scarlet Witch

Scarlet Witch might be one of the most powerful Avengers, but she still couldn't do anything when Thanos turned everyone in dust or killed Vision not once, but twice, in the span of just minutes. With most of the Avengers set to return, it'll be interesting to see what happens to the character after Vision's death, if they don't resurrect him as well.

14. Star-Lord

Fans were pretty upset with Star-Lord, a.k.a. Peter Quill, when he ruined Iron Man and Doctor Strange's plans to wrestle the Gauntlet off of Thanos on the planet Titan, but he was reacting to the death of his love, Gamora. Some fans might have been happy he turned to dust at the end of 'Infinity War,' but he will be back for 'Avengers 4' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.'

13. Drax

Drax didn't have much of a storyline in 'Infinity War,' but did provide some great comic relief. Sadly, he also turned to dust at the end of the film, despite his drive to take revenge on Thanos for murdering his family.

12. Groot

Though technically a teenager over the course of 'Infinity War,' Groot is still growing, and reluctantly joins Rocket and Thor in restoring the Norse God's hammer after 'Ragnarok.' He helps give the new weapon a handle before fading away in Rocket's arms.

11. Mantis

The newest member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Mantis was instrumental in holding off Thanos on Titan until Star-Lord threw the plan off course and she disappeared alongside half of the entire universe, leaving Iron Man and Nebula on a planet alone. 

10. Falcon

Falcon has always had Captain America's back, ever since his appearance in 'Captain America: Winter Soldier,' but the winged Avenger could barely take on Ant-Man let alone Thanos and the Black Order. He too, turned to dust after the fight in Wakanda.

9. Lady Sif

Lady Sif, who didn't even appear in 'Avengers: Infinity War,' was originally featured in 'Thor,' but directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed in an interview that the character did indeed disappear, so we wouldn't even have to worry about what the Asgardian has been up to.

8. Black Panther

King T'Challa might have gone to extreme lengths to protect his country of Wakanda in his solo film that premiered right before 'Infinity War,' but after fighting Thanos and the Black Order on his home turf, he too, disappeared. Don't count the hero out, however; he's part of two of the most successful films of all time.

7. Doctor Strange

The Sorcerer Supreme, his magic was a good threat to Thanos, but not enough with the Infinity Gauntlet almost completely assembled. He saw over 14 million potential futures, and the Avengers only came through on top on one possible future. He sacrificed the time stone in the end, stating it was 'the only way,' before disappearing.

6. Spider-Man

In one of the most gut-wrenching scenes of the film, Spider-Man disappears right after feeling what's about to happen to him from his spider-sense. Fading away in Tony Stark's arms, he utters the line, "I don't want to go," and then disappears. Fear not however, he's scheduled to return in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home,' which takes place after 'Avengers 4.'

5. Maria Hill

Exiting the car with Nick Fury as his most trusted advisor and confidant, in the film's end credits scene, Maria Hill witnesses Thanos' destruction on New York City before turning into dust and disappearing herself.

4. Nick Fury

When Nick Fury views the destruction of New York City with Maria Hill, he knows something horrible could happen to him, and gets out a pager to signal Captain Marvel, who will premiere in her own film in 2019, later to join the Avengers in 'Avengers 4.' He also then fades away.

3. Hank Pym

The original Ant-Man, designer of the suit, and creator of the Pym particle that allows Ant-Man and the Wasp to shrink and grow at incredible speeds, Pym seems to be finally happy when 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' concludes, only to fade away in dust in the post-credits scene.

2. Janet and Hope Van Dyne, the Wasps

Even though the family is reunited at the end of 'Ant-Man and the Wasp,' it's all for naught (momentarily), as everyone disappears, leaving Ant-Man trapped in the Quantum Realm at the end of the film in the post-credits scene, setting up his return in 'Avengers 4.'

1. Matt Damon

Revealed in an interview with 'Infinity War' directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Matt Damon's cameo as the Asgardian actor who plays Loki in a play during 'Ragnarok' also fades away after Thanos' snap, meaning the A-lister probably won't have an opportunity to reprise the role. 

Seemingly no one can withstand Thanos' wrath, that is, until 'Avengers 4' premieres on May 3rd, 2019.
