If you've seen Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War by now, you're sure to have a million questions. The fate of our heroes and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole is even more unsure than before the movie began.
Here's what we do know, though: Thanos (or Grimace, as Star-Lord likes to call him) won. His goal of collecting the stones and balancing the universe came true, and with a simple snap, half of the life in the universe vanished.
We lost some favorites and powerhouses: Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Bucky, Falcon, Wanda, Star-Lord, Mantis, Drax, Groot and the most heartbreaking of all, our friendly neighborhood Spiderman.
Most of the original Avengers have survived, including Captain America, Black Widow, Bruce Banner and Thor. Tony is stranded on a planet far from Earth and Hawkeye is still yet to be seen.
There are a lot of places the Russo Brothers can take the next movie. Theories have arisen involving time travel, alternate dimensions, and Ant-Man and the Wasp's probable foray into the Quantum Realm.
Here are a few of the key factors I believe will come into play in the next Avengers, where they'll have to try to reverse the impossible.
