The unexpected deaths in Avengers: Infinity War was certainly devastating to fans but the bigger problem is undoubtedly the future of other Marvel Cinematic Universe flicks. This is obviously reflected in the box office collections, and critical acclaim the movie has been receiving thus far.

Until "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" comes out in mid-June, "Avengers" will face little competition in China's cineplexes, and combined with the latter-stage revenue from the rest of the world, that should be enough to help "Avengers: Infinity War" reach a milestone no summer tentpole has ever reached before. Still, there are a lot more possible movies that Marvel could be producing. The relationship between Tony Stark and Peter Parker, (which has a huge emotional pay off in the ending) carries over from Spiderman: Homecoming. The Black Panther team coordinated with the Infinity War team in an attempt to create a sense of cohesion between these stories, and there is a plan in place to eventually go back to their respective arcs and continue what was started in Ryan Coogler's solo movie.
Speaking with Screen Rant, he said: "I think it's an opportunity for us to bid a fond farewell to characters that we've come to know for a while".
The fact that Infinity War is pretty much inaccessible to outside audiences that haven't been following the 18 movies of the MCU over the past 10 years, is the point.
