A new set of character posters for Avengers: Endgame appears to reveal who did and didn’t survive Thanos’s snap at the end of Infinity War, which obliterated 50% of the universe’s population (we’re still reeling).
Each one – there are 32 in total – is a portrait of an MCU superhero with the words “Avenge the fallen” splashed across their face. The ones who survived are in colour, while the “fallen” are in black and white.
While we knew from the trailer and previous film that the likes of Thor, Captain Marvel, Captain America and Iron Man lived to take the fight to Thanos, and that Black Panther, Spider-Man and Scarlett Witch were among those to have perished, it wasn’t clear until now that Happy, Iron Man’s assistant played by Jon Favreau, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts had made it through, too.

The posters also clarify that Benedict Wong’s Wong is alive, while Letitia Wright’s Shuri was, unfortunately, turned to dust.
the good news:

the bad news:
– shuri is dead
– loki is crying
– peter looks the saddest because his death hurt the most

Twitter being Twitter, there are already plenty of great “avenge the fallen memes”, slotting in characters from other films and TV shows – like The Lion King’s Mufasa, John Wick’s dog and Alf – in place of the MCU superheroes.
Check out some of the best ones below.
