For comic book characters, death isn’t quite the final condition it is for the rest of us. It’s more of an annoying flu that sidelines them for a few years at most before they find a way to kick it. WatchMojo has put together a list of the 10 saddest superhero deaths in which the condition stuck (it also included supporting characters on the list, and given the subject matter it goes without saying that this is a SPOILER intensive list.
Most of the entries come from films outside the MCU and DCEU, both of which have been pretty merciful to characters so far (unless they were underdeveloped villains). I have a feeling that the MCU’s mercy, at least, is going to change with Avengers 3 & 4 in a big way, but most of the entries on this list come from X-Men, Spider-Man, and pre-DCEU Batman installments. While I agree with a lot of the choices (and the rule that no one resurrected should be included), choosing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or X-Men: Apocalypse over Watchmen struck me as a particularly grievous oversight. I definitely agree with #1, but I think there should be two entrants from Logan on the list. What traumas did you find left out? Let’s grieve together, people!
Jessica Jones Season 2 was filmed back-to-back with The Defenders, so it’s no surprise that it looks like it’ll be the next foray into the MCU/Netflix-verse. Season one of the show stands right next to Daredevil’s first season as the best of the Netflix series, but it also used Jones’ most powerful storyline and only real villain in David Tenant’s Killgrave. It looks like season two will find Jones questioning how she got her abilities and, if I were to venture a guess, drinking a lot and throwing people through walls. How many doors will Alias Investigations go through in season two when Jessica Jones Season Two premieres on Netflix on March 8, 2018?
Black Panther is one of the most complicated characters in the Marvel Universe. He’s a monarch to the most isolated and technologically advanced nation on earth. He’s a religious leader. He’s a super hero to the outside world, and he’s the bearer of a mantle that stretches back to the founding of his nation. Avengers: Infinity War showed us how pivotal Wakanda is going to be to the fight against Thanos on Earth, and I’m so pleased that they’ve gone all out again, creating another unique corner of the Marvel Universe for us to discover even when we’re going to be 18 films into the epic. Black Panther’s two international trailers have a lot of additional footage, and the film itself will release February 16, 2018.

After over a year of anticipation, everyone finally got to see the first full trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Now is the time to scrutinize every frame for hidden meaning! As you scroll down, you’ll see the Spider-Armor from Spider-Man: Homecoming, the cosmic cube Loki nicked in a blink-if-you-missed-it moment from Thor: Ragnarok, and Peter Quill with a mustache! STACHE LORD!!! Clearly Black Panther is going to be the perfect lead-in film for Infinity War, as it looks like a lot of the battle for Earth is going to take place in Wakanda. Poor Vision is going to lose that forehead decoration, and SOMEBODY please get bearded Cap a shield! I can’t wait! Continue reading 55 HD Stills from Avengers: Infinity War Trailer #1!!!!
What began in 2008 with Iron Man will begin to come to a close in 2018 with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. The first of a two-part finale to an unprecedented 22-movie story arc spanning the Marvel Universe, the film will unite essentially the entire MCU in a fight against the Mad Titan Thanos. Heroes will die. Stories will end. The first trailer is essentially a polished version of the one shown to crowds exclusively at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con, but it’s spectacular. We’ll have more analysis later in the day along with tons of stills from this jaw-dropper, but for now watch, rinse, repeat. Avengers: Infinity War opens May 4, 2018.
