Fans can now confidently add two more supporting characters to the list of those we know survived Avengers: Infinity War. The Marvel film broke hearts everywhere, as we saw Thanos destroy half the universe with just one snap. Ever since then, we’ve been trying to figure out who made it out alive, and who might be brought to life.
Brandon T. Snider, author of the new book Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest, Volume 2: Aftermath, shared photos of the front and back covers in celebration of the book’s release, and (perhaps inadvertently) spilled some major info.
TODAY’S THE DAY! The search for the truth begins in @Marvel’s #AvengersInfinityWar: Cosmic Quest Volume #2: AFTERMATH. Who are the Science Avengers?! Pick up a copy and find out. https://t.co/hpI06Z4jFG pic.twitter.com/eYStCiWuzZ— Brandon T. Snider (@BrandonTSnider) November 27, 2018
The plot summary on the back of the book not only confirms that Dr. Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis survived Infinity War, but also that they are lead characters of the new book. It’s unlikely the new book will have any serious spoilers for Avengers 4, but the new information has been revealed just as a new fan theory surrounding Selvig popped up on the Marvel Studios subreddit, according to ComicBook.
The theory, posted by Redditor mushbert, states that Erik Selvig holds the key to defeating Thanos, pointing out that Selvig has predicted several events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming true before, which means he might’ve known the snap was going to happen. This is just the one of many ideas as to how our favorite characters could come back and ultimately win against The Mad Titan.
Snider wasn't done spilling the tea on Avengers 4 just there. The writer took to Twitter after news hit to share that fans are going to want to read the book to find out some major info about the characters.
Only two? Hmmmmm. You might want to read the book... https://t.co/folZvjS2vx— Brandon T. Snider (@BrandonTSnider) November 28, 2018
