Destiny arrives. taglines
  • [To Doctor Strange] Did you seriously just say "Hitherto undreamt of"?
  • [To Ebony Maw] I'm sorry, Earth is closed today! You better pack it up and get outta here!
  • ["Knighting" Peter Parker on the shoulders with his hand] Alright, kid. You're an Avenger now.
  • [Thanos impales Heimdall in the chest] NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! You're going to die for that!
  • You know, I'm 1,500 years old. I've killed twice as many enemies as that. And every one of them would have rather killed me, but none succeeded. I'm only alive because fate wants me alive. Thanos is just the latest of a long line of bastards, and he'll be the latest to feel my vengeance – fate wills it so.
  • [After throwing Stormbreaker into Thanos' chest] I told you... you'd die for that.
  • [Trying to change into the Hulk in New York] Come on, Hulk. What're you doin' to me? [Starts slapping himself multiple times] Come out! Come out! Come out! [Hulk: No-o-o-o!] What do you mean, "No"?!
  • We need all hands on deck. Where's Clint? [Natasha Romanoff: After the whole Accords situation, he and Scott took a deal. It was too tough on their families. They're on house arrest.] Who's Scott? [Steve Rogers: Ant-Man.] There's an Ant-Man and a Spider-Man?
  • [Trying to change into the Hulk while fighting Cull Obsidian in the Hulkbuster armor] Hulk. Hulk, I know you like making your entrance at the last second. Well, this is it, man! This is the last, last second! Hulk! Hulk! Hulk! [Hulk: No!] Oh, screw you, you big green asshole! I'll do it myself!
  • [To Secretary Thaddeus Ross] I'm not looking for forgiveness. And I'm way past asking for permission. Earth just lost her best defender. So we're here to fight. And if you wanna stay in our way, we'll fight you, too.
  • [When Vision offers to sacrifice himself to stop Thanos] We don't trade lives, Vision.
  • [Secretary Thaddeus Ross: You got some nerve. I'll give you that.] You could use some of that right now.
  • [To Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight] We don't wanna kill you. But we will.
  • [Spider-Man: Hey, what was that?] I went forward in time to view alternate futures. To see all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict. [Star-Lord: How many did you see?] 14,000,605. [Iron Man: How many did we win?] One.
  • We're in the endgame now.
  • [Last words] Tony... there was no other way.
  • You can't be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man if there's no neighborhood.
  • I'm Peter, by the way. [Dr. Stephen Strange: Doctor Strange.] Oh, we're using our made up names. Um... I'm Spider-Man, then.
  • Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good.
  • [Last words] I'm sorry.
  • Evacuate the city. Engage all defenses. And get this man a shield.
  • YIBAMBE! [Pronounced "yee-bam-Ba": Xhosa for "hold strong"]
  • Wakanda forever!
  • [Last words] Up, General! Up! This is no place to die.
  • The entire time I knew Thanos, he only ever had one goal: To bring balance to the universe by wiping out half of all life. He used to kill people planet by planet, massacre by massacre. [Drax the Destroyer: Including my own.] If he gets all six Infinity Stones, he can do it with the snap of his fingers, like this.
  • Did you do it? [Thanos: Yes.] What did it cost? [Thanos: Everything.]
  • Well, for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another... we have a Hulk.
  • [Last words] You... will never be... a god.
  • [Last words] It's alright. It's alright. I love you.
  • [Last words] [Thanos: I understand, my child. Better than anyone.] You could never. [Thanos: Today, I lost more than you can know. But now is no time to mourn. Now... is no time at all.] [Thanos uses the Time Stone to resurrect Vision] NO!!!
  • [Steve Rogers: How you been, Buck?] Not bad, for the end of the world.
  • [Last words] Steve?
  • [Last words] Allfathers, let the dark magic... flow through me one last... time.
  • Kick names, take ass.
  • [Last words] Something's happening.
  • I'll do you one better. Why is Gamora?
  • [Last word] Quill?
  • I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail nonetheless. [Grabs Thor by the head] It's frightening, turns the legs to jelly. But I ask you, to what end? Dread it, run from it, destiny arrives all the same. And now, it's here. Or should I say: I AM. [Reveals the Power Stone]
  • [to Heimdall after sending injured Hulk back to Earth] That was a mistake. [impales Heimdall in his chest with Corvus Glaive's weapon, killing him]
  • [to Loki as he freezes his attack with the space stone] "Undying?" You should choose your words more carefully. [flicks Loki's dagger and starts strangling him with his Gauntlet, killing him]
  • [to Gamora after obtaining the reality stone] Reality is often disappointing. That is, it was. Now, reality can be whatever I want.
  • [to Gamora on his plans to use the stones] This universe is finite, its resources finite. If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist. It needs correction. I'm the only one who knows that. At least, I'm the only one with the will to act on it.
  • [to Gamora on the deaths of others] A small price to pay for salvation.
  • [to Doctor Strange about his home planet] It was, and it was beautiful. Titan was like most planets, too many mouths not enough to go around, and when we faced extinction I offered a solution. Random, dispassionate; fair to rich and poor alike, and they called me a mad man. I'm a survivor.
  • [to Doctor Strange about his plans to use the Stones] With all six stones, I could simply snap my fingers and they would all cease to exist. I call that... mercy.
  • [to Doctor Strange about his plans after he uses the stones] I finally rest and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest wills.
  • [Doctor Strange after defeating him in combat] You're full of tricks, wizard... but you never once used your greatest weapon. A fake. [Breaks amulet]
  • [to Tony Stark after defeating him in combat on Titan] You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you.
  • [to Scarlet Witch after defeating the Avengers] I understand, my child. Today, I lost more than you could know, but now is no time to mourn; now is no time at all.
  • [After Thor wounds him with Stormbreaker] You should've gone for the head. [Snaps his fingers, activating the completed gauntlet]
  • Flash Gordon? By the way, that's a compliment. Don't forget, I'm half-human. So that 50% of me that's stupid? That's 100% you.
  • [Last words] Aw, man.
  • [Last words] Nick?


Thanos: [Unimpressed] If you consider failure experience.
Loki: I consider experience experience. Almighty Thanos, I, Loki, Prince of Asgard... [Looks significantly at Thor] Odinson... the rightful King of Jotunheim, God of Mischief, do hereby pledge to you, my undying fidelity.
[Thor squints and notices a dagger materialize in Loki's hand. Loki braces himself, thrusts upward with lightning speed and attempts to stab Thanos, but is frozen in place by the Space Stone's power before the point could strike home.]
Thanos: "Undying." You should choose your words more carefully.
[Thanos twists the dagger out of Loki's hand with his right hand, then takes hold of Loki's neck with the gauntlet and lifts him to eye level. Loki struggles, kicking, as his throat is squeezed. He makes eye contact with Thor before he increases his force on Loki's neck.]
Loki: [Giving up on fighting against Thanos] You... will never be... a god. [Thanos crushes Loki's neck, killing him.]
Thor: [Muffled in his gag] No!
Thanos: [Walks over and drops Loki's body in front of Thor.] No resurrections this time.
[Thanos raises the gauntlet, sends violet Power fire through the remains of the Statesman, and uses the Space Stone to teleport away with the Black Order.]
Thor: No... Loki...
[Thor is released from his bonds. He crawls over to Loki's body – which, unlike in Thor: The Dark World, has not returned to its Jotun form – and lays his head down on Loki's chest, shedding tears for all that he has lost. The ship explodes.]

[Dr. Stephen Strange recruits Tony Stark to the New York Sanctum, and he with Bruce Banner and Wong explain Thanos' plan to acquire the Infinity Stones.]
Tony Stark: Tell me his name again.
Bruce Banner: Thanos. He's a plague, Tony. He invades planets, he takes what he wants, he wipes out half the population. He sent Loki! The attack on New York, that's him!
Stark: [To himself] This is it... what's our timeline?
Banner: No telling. He has the Power and Space Stones, that already makes him the strongest creature in the whole Universe! If he gets his hands on all 6 Stones, Tony...
Dr. Stephen Strange: He could destroy life on a scale hitherto undreamt of.

Thor: There's six stones out there. Thanos already has the Power Stone because he stole it when he decimated Xandar last week. He stole the Space Stone from me, when he destroyed my ship and slaughtered half my people. The Time and Mind Stones are safe on Earth. They're with the Avengers.
Peter Quill: The Avengers?
Thor: They're Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Mantis: Like Kevin Bacon? [This line echoes a reference to Footloose made by Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy]
Thor: He may be on the team, I don't know. Haven't been there in a while. As for the Soul Stone, no one's ever seen that. No one even knows where it is. Therefore, Thanos can't get it. Therefore, he's going to Knowhere. Hence, he'll be getting the Reality Stone. You're welcome!
Gamora: Then we have to go to Knowhere now.
Thor: Wrong. Where we have to go is Nidavellir.
Drax: That's a made up word.
Thor: All words are made-up.
Rocket: Hold up, Nidavellir is real? Seriously?! I mean, that place is a legend. They make the most powerful, horrific weapons to ever torment the universe. I would very much like to go there, please!
Thor: The rabbit is correct, and clearly the smartest one among you.
Rocket: Rabbit?
Thor: Only Eitri the Dwarf can make me the weapon I need.

Peter Quill: [Moving in, his blaster pointed right at Thanos] Let her go, Grimace!
Gamora: Peter...
Peter Quill: [To Gamora] I told you to go right.
Gamora: Now? Really?
Peter Quill: You let her go!
Thanos: Ah, the boyfriend.
Peter Quill: I like to think of myself more as a Titan-killing long-term booty call. Let her go.
Gamora: Peter...
Peter Quill: Or I'm gonna blow that nutsack of a chin right off your face!
Gamora: Not him.
[Quill hesitates. He does not shoot anyone.]
Gamora: You promised! You promised.
Thanos: Oh, daughter. You expect too much from him. [To Quill] She's asked, hasn't she? Do it. [there is a very tense and unpleasant pause. Thanos rolls his head and shoves Gamora towards Quill's gun, egging him on.] DO IT!
Peter Quill: [Tearing up] I told you to go right.
Gamora: I love you, more than anything...
Peter Quill: I love you, too...
[Quill screws up his eyes and pulls the trigger... but a stream of bubbles comes out. Thanos was playing him.]
Thanos: [Genuinely sincere because Quill kept his word to Gamora...or at least tried to] I like him.

Tony Stark: [Breathes shakily] Come on. We got a situation. [Leads Peter over to a viewpoint on the torture below. Peter crouches to study the situation, the Cloak leaning over his shoulder] See him down there? He's in trouble. What's your plan? Go.
Peter Parker: Um. Okay, okay... uh... [Peter and the Cloak pop back upright] Okay, did you ever see this really old movie, Aliens?
[The Cloak lifts its collar in surprise.]
[Cut back to Ebony Maw interrogating Dr. Strange, who screams loudly.]
Ebony Maw: Painful, aren't they? They were originally designed for microsurgery. And any one of them...
[At the "thump" behind him, Maw turns to see Iron Man standing there, hand repulsors ready to fire.]
Ebony Maw: Could end your friend's life in an instant.
Tony Stark: I gotta tell you, he's not really my friend. Saving his life is more a professional courtesy.
Ebony Maw: [Walks slowly towards Iron Man, beckoning very large, very solid metal objects to float behind him] You've saved nothing. Your powers are inconsequential compared to mine.
Tony Stark: Yeah, but the kid's seen more movies.

Tony Stark: This ship is self-correcting its course. Thing's on autopilot.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [Walks closer to Tony] Can we control it? Fly us home? [Tony is lost in bad memories and does not respond right away.] Stark?
Tony Stark: Yeah?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Can you get us home?
Tony Stark: Yeah, I heard you. I'm thinking– I'm not so sure we should.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Under no circumstance can we bring the Time Stone to Thanos. I don't think you quite understand what's at stake here.
Tony Stark: [Stalks over to Strange] No. It's you who doesn't understand, that Thanos has been inside my head for six years since he sent an army to New York and now he's back! And I don't know what to do. So I'm not so sure if it's a better plan to fight him on our turf or his, but you saw what they did, what they can do. At least on his turf, he's not expecting it. So I say we take the fight to him, Doctor. Do you concur?
Dr. Stephen Strange: [Pauses] Alright, Stark. We go to him. But you have to understand... if it comes to saving you or the kid or the Time Stone... I will not hesitate to let either of you die. I can't, because the fate of the universe depends on it.
Tony Stark: Nice. Good. Moral compass. We're straight. [Stepping over to Peter, he formally taps each of Peter's shoulders with the edge of his hand, dubbing him as is done at a knighting.] Alright, kid. You're an Avenger now. [He doesn't look at him as he says those words, knowing well what he is signing him up for.]
[Peter looks at Tony in disbelief, and then cycles through delight, satisfaction, pride and determination, and braces himself for what's to come.]

[Iron Man, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange arrived in Titan.]
Tony Stark: [to Doctor Strange] You alright? That was close. I owe you one.
[Peter Parker descends from above in spider-like fashion]
Peter Parker: Let me just say, if aliens wind up implanting eggs in my chest or something…And I end up eating you, I’m sorry.
Tony Stark: [While pointing at Peter, annoyed] I don’t wanna hear another single pop culture out of you for the rest of the trip. You understand?
Peter Parker: I’m trying to say that something is coming.
[Suddenly, a grenade comes through and Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange are blown back. Star-Lord, Drax and Mantis arrives in the ship.]
Drax: THANOS! [Roaring]
[Throws his knives at Dr. Strange, who conjures a magic shield to stop them. Drax yells and tries to charge, but the Cloak of Levitation wraps itself around Drax's face, tackling him to the ground. Star-Lord flies up while firing at Iron Man. Iron Man fires back while rocketing upward as well. He fires a rocket at Star-Lord, who dodges, but the explosion throws him backward. Iron Man grabs him and throws him to the deck. Star-Lord activates a device he had attached to Iron Man's chest, which pulls him toward the wall and sticks him there. Spider-Man wakes up to find Mantis standing in front of him]
Peter Parker: AHH! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Please don't put your eggs in me!
[He webs her up, but before he can do any more, Star-Lord comes flying in and kicks him aside.]
Peter Quill: Stay down, clown.
[Star-Lord fires his blasters at Spider-Man, who leaps into the rafters and dodges the blasts. He lands on the ground and tries to leap toward Star-Lord, but Star-Lord throws a electrical bola at him, sending him tumbling to the ground.]
Drax: [Wrestling the Cloak of Levitation] Die, blanket of Death!
[Iron Man frees himself from the wall, flies over to Drax, and pins him under his boot while the Cloak of Levitation flies back to Dr. Strange.]
Peter Quill: Everybody, stay where you are, chill the eff out... [Quill powers off his helmet] I'm gonna ask you this one time. Where is Gamora?
Tony Stark: [De-helmeting] Yeah, I'll do you one better. Who's Gamora?
Drax: [to Quill] I'll do you one better. Why is Gamora?
Peter Quill: Tell me where the girl is, or I swear to you, I'm gonna French-fry this little freak. [Points his blaster to Spider-Man's face]
Tony Stark: Let's do it! You shoot my guy and I'll blast him! [Tony extends his nanotech cannon at Drax's face] Let's go!
Drax: Do it, Quill! I can take it.
Mantis: No, he can't take it!
Dr. Stephen Strange: [Completely deadpan] She's right. You can't.
Peter Quill: Oh yeah? You don't wanna tell me where she is? That's fine. I'll kill all three of you and I'll beat it out of Thanos myself. [To Spider-Man] Starting with you.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Wait, what? Thanos? [Trying to inject clarity and sanity into the situation] Alright, let me ask you this one time: What master do you serve?
Peter Quill: What master do I serve? What am I supposed to say, "Jesus"?
Tony Stark: You're from Earth.
Peter Quill: I'm not from Earth, I'm from Missouri.
Tony Stark: Yeah, that's on Earth, dipshit. What are you hassling us for?
Peter Parker: [Sounding slightly crushed] So you're not with Thanos?
Peter Quill: With Thanos? No, I'm here to kill Thanos. He took my girl. Wait, who are you?
Peter Parker: [De-helmeting] We're the Avengers, man.
Mantis: You're the ones Thor told us about!
Tony Stark: You know Thor?
Peter Quill: Yeah, tall guy, not that good-looking, needed saving.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Where is he now?

Gamora: I'm sorry I disappointed you.
Thanos: I am disappointed. But not because you didn't find it. [Leans down to put their heads at a level, whispering fiercely] But because you did. [Looks at her] And you lied.
[Thanos and Gamora stand outside a large solid door that slides open vertically as they approach, then pause as a set of inner doors made of interlacing metal slide away. Inside, we see Nebula face-on, suspended horizontally in the air in the middle of the room, her breath shuddering in pain.]
Gamora: Nebula.
[Gamora hurries to to Nebula's left side, and we now see that she has been partially disassembled, her components stretched apart on a cybernetic version of the medieval torture rack.]
Gamora: Don't do this.
Thanos: Some time ago, your sister snuck aboard this ship to kill me.
Gamora: Please don't do this.
Thanos: And very nearly succeeded. So I brought her here. To talk.
[Thanos curls his gauntleted fist, activating both the Power and Space Stones, scowling and causing Nebula's already extended pieces to stretch further outward. She begins to scream.]
Gamora: Stop. Stop it. [She puts her hands on the gauntlet, pulling it down] I swear to you on my life. I never found the Soul Stone.
[Thanos signals a nearby servant who taps on a control pad. We hear Nebula's voice say, "Accessing memory files" and a sort of hologram of Gamora's face shudders to life.]
Memory Nebula: You know what he's about to do. He's finally ready, and he's going for the stones. All of them.
Memory Gamora: He can never get them all.
Memory Nebula: He will!
Memory Gamora: He can't, Nebula. Because I found the map to the Soul Stone and I burnt it to ash. I burnt it.
[The memory ends.]
Thanos: [To Gamora, walking around behind her] You're strong. Me. You're generous. Me. But I never taught you to lie. That's why you're so bad at it. [His voice drips with disgust] Where... is... the Soul Stone? [He raises his gauntlet next to Gamora's face. Nebula shakes her head, expression terrified, to encourage her sister's silence but when Gamora does not answer, Thanos clenches the gauntlet again, brow furrowed at his adopted daughter as the Power and Space Stones are reactivated. Gamora grimaces in shared pain at her sister's screams, growing louder as Thanos increases the pressure.]
Gamora: Vormir! [Thanos unclenches his hand, and Nebula gasps in air as her parts snap back almost into place. Gamora goes to her and caresses her face.] The Stone is on Vormir.
Thanos: [Satisfied.] Show me.

[Thor, Rocket and Groot are traveling to Nidavellir.]
Groot: [Irritably] I am Groot.
Rocket: Tinkle in the cup. We're not looking. What's there to see? What's a twig? Everybody's seen a twig.
Groot: [Still irritably] I am Groot.
Thor: [While looking out the rear portholes] Tree, pour what's in the cup out in space, and go in the cup again.
Rocket: You speak Groot?!
Thor: Yes, they taught it on Asgard. It was an elective.
Groot: I am Groot?
Thor: You'll know when we're close. Nidavellir's forge harnesses the blazing power of a Neutron Star. It's the birthplace of my hammer; It's truly awesome.
Rocket: [To himself] Okay, time to be the Captain. [To Thor] So, dead brother, huh? Yeah, that can be annoying.
Thor: Well, he's been dead before. But this time... I think it really might be true.
Rocket: And you said that your sister and your dad–
Thor: Both dead.
Rocket: But still got a mom, though?
Thor: Killed by a Dark Elf.
Rocket: A best friend?
Thor: Stabbed through the heart.
Rocket: You sure you're up for this particular murder mission?
Thor: Absolutely. The rage, vengeance, anger, loss, regret, they're all tremendous motivators. They truly clear the mind... so, I'm good to go.
Rocket: Yeah, but this is Thanos we're talking about, he's the toughest there is!
Thor: Well, he's never fought me.
Rocket: Yeah, he has.
Thor: Well, he's never fought me twice. And I'll have a new hammer, don't forget.
Rocket: Well, it'd better be some hammer.
Thor: You know, I'm 1,500 years old. I've killed twice as many enemies as that, and every one of them would have rather killed me, but none succeeded. I'm only alive because Fate wants me alive. Thanos is just the latest in a long line of bastards, and he'll be the latest to feel my vengeance. Fate wills it so.
Rocket: And what if you're wrong?
Thor: [Mirthless chuckle] Well, if I'm wrong, then... what more could I lose?

Eitri: You were supposed to protect us. Asgard was supposed to protect us!
Thor: Asgard is destroyed.
[Eitri stops his attack on Thor. He now believes Thanos had destroyed Asgard and leaving him in a similar survivor role like Eitri himself.]
Thor: Eitri, the Glove. What did you do?
Eitri: [Sits down] Three hundred dwarves lived on this ring. If I thought I did what he asked, they'd be safe. I made what he wanted. A device capable of harnessing the power of the stones. And he killed everyone anyway, all except me. "Your life is yours," he said. "But your hands– your hands are mine alone." [Holds up his hands, encased in hardened molten metal]
Thor: Eitri, this isn't about your hands. Every weapon you've ever designed – every axe, hammer, sword – it's all inside your head. Now, I know it feels like all hope is lost. Trust me, I know. But together, you and I, we can kill Thanos.
[Cut to Nebula suspended in the interrogation room seen earlier, while a technician puts her back together. Nebula ejects her eyepiece and snaps the neck of the tech when he comes close enough to replace it. She walks to a console, straightening her left arm, dragging her still-dislocated right foot behind her, and inputs a code.]
Nebula: Mantis, listen very carefully. I need you to meet me on Titan.

Thanos: Little one, it's a simple calculus. This universe is finite, its resources finite. If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist. It needs correction.
Gamora: You don't know that!
Thanos: I'm the only one who knows that. At least, I'm the only one with the will to act on it. For a time, you had that same will. As you fought by my side, daughter.
Gamora: I'm not your daughter. Everything I hate about myself, you taught me.
Thanos: And in doing so, made you the fiercest woman in the Galaxy.

[Dr. Strange was floating mid-air, cross-legged in meditation pose, with his head snapping all over the place]
Spider-Man: Hey, what was that?
Dr. Strange: I went forward in time to view alternate futures. To see all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict.
Quill: How many did you see?
Dr. Strange: 14,000,605.
Stark: How many did we win?
Dr. Strange: One.

[After Gamora reveals Thanos where the Soul Stone is, they travel to Vormir, the Stone's location]
Stonekeeper: Welcome, Thanos, son of A'Lars. Gamora, daughter of Thanos.
Thanos: You know us?
Stonekeeper: It is my curse to know all who journey here.
Thanos: Where is the Soul Stone?
Stonekeeper: You should know: It extracts a terrible price.
Thanos: I am prepared.
Stonekeeper: We all think that at first. [His face is revealed as the Red Skull] We are all wrong.
Thanos: How is it you know this place so well?
Red Skull: A lifetime ago, I, too, sought the stones. I even held one in my hand. But it cast me out, banished me here. Guiding others to a treasure I cannot possess.
[Red Skull leads Thanos and Gamora to a shrine on the edge of a tall cliff]
Red Skull: What you seek lies in front of you. As does what you fear.
Gamora: What's this?
Red Skull: The price. Soul holds a special place among the Infinity Stones. You might say it has a certain wisdom.
Thanos: Tell me what it needs.
Red Skull: To ensure whoever possesses it understands its power, the stone demands a sacrifice.
Thanos: Of what?
Red Skull: In order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. A soul, for a soul.
Gamora: [laughs] All my life I dreamed of a day, a moment, when you got what you deserved. And I was always so disappointed. But now, you kill, and torture and you call it mercy. The universe has judged you. You asked it for a prize and it told you no. You failed. And do you wanna know why? Because you love nothing. No one.
Thanos: [sheds a tear] No.
Gamora: Really? Tears?
Red Skull: They are not for him.
[Gamora looks at the Red Skull, and as her bitter smile fades, realizes what is about to happen]
Gamora: No. This isn't love.
Thanos: I ignored my destiny once. I cannot do that again. Even for you.
[Gamora takes the double-edged knife Thanos had given her, then tries to stab herself in the stomach. But Thanos uses the Reality Stone, turning the knife into bubbles]
Thanos: [anguished] I'm sorry, little one.
Gamora: [muted] NO!

Steve Rogers: [Walking up to the pilot's seat] Drop to 2600, heading 0-3-0.
Sam Wilson: I hope you're right about this, Cap. Or we're gonna land a lot faster than you want to.
[The Quinjet passes through a camouflage force field into Wakanda's Golden City's valley and lands at the airfield outside the palace. King T'Challa and the Dora Milaje approach to greet the arrivals]
Okoye: [Walking with King T'Challa and a band of the Kingsguard to the landing pad] When you said we were going to open Wakanda to the rest of the world, this is not what I imagined.
T'Challa: And what did you imagine?
Okoye: The Olympics. Maybe even a Starbucks.
[The occupants of the Quinjet disembark, Steve and Natasha leading, followed by Bruce and Rhodey, with Vision and Wanda slowly taking up the rear.]
Bruce Banner: [to Rhodes] Should we bow?
James Rhodes: [seriously] Yeah, he's a king.
Steve Rogers: Seems like I'm always thanking you for something. [shaking hands with T'Challa, while Bruce bows awkwardly to him.]
James Rhodes: [to Banner, mock shocked] What are you doing?
T'Challa: Uh, we don't do that here. [He dissuades Bruce with a motion of his hand; Bruce shoots Rhodey a look, and is answered with a big grin] So how big of an assault can we expect?
[The group begins to walk back into the administrative building.]
Bruce Banner: Uh, sir, I think you can expect quite a big assault.
Natasha Romanoff: How we looking?
T'Challa: You will have my Kingsguard, the Border Tribe, the Dora Milaje, and...
Bucky Barnes: [Smiling as he walks toward Steve, passing some Kingsguard taking Vision and Wanda to another facility] A semi-stable, 100-year-old man.
[The two friends share a hug.]
Steve Rogers: How you been, Buck?
Bucky Barnes: Uh, not bad, for the end of the world.

Tony Stark: [While pulling] Is he under? Don't let up.
Mantis: Be quick. He is very strong.
Tony Stark: Parker, help! Get over here. [Spider-Man drops his web-line, and hurries to help Tony with the gauntlet.] She can't hold him much longer. Let's go.
[Star-Lord flies over to join the others.]
Peter Parker: We gotta open his fingers to get it off.
Peter Quill: [Stands in front of Thanos, tauntingly] I thought you'd be harder to catch. For the record, this was my plan. Not so strong now, huh? Where is Gamora?
Thanos: My... Gamora...?
Peter Quill: No, bullshit! Where is she?
Mantis: [Shocked] He is in anguish.
Peter Quill: Good.
Mantis: [Crying] He... he... he mourns.
Drax: What does this monster have to mourn?!
Nebula: Gamora...
Peter Quill: [Pause] What?
Nebula: [Realizing with horror and sadness what has happened] He took her to Vormir. He came back with the Soul Stone, but she didn't.
Tony Stark: [Grasps the danger immediately and de-helmets] Okay, Quill, you gotta cool it right now, you understand?
[Quill slowly turns to Thanos]
Tony Stark: [Shouting his pleads desperately] Don't, don't, don't engage, we've almost got this off!
Peter Quill: Tell me she's lying. [Enraged] ASSHOLE! Tell me you didn't do it!
Thanos: I... had... to...
Peter Quill: [While starting to tear up; quietly] No, you didn't! No, you didn't! [He continues to rage and then pistol-whipping Thanos twice in the face, causing Mantis to let go in pain.] NO, YOU DIDN'T!
Tony Stark and Drax: Quill!
[Iron Man leaps for Star-Lord's arm, re-helmeting and leaving Spider-Man to pull off the gauntlet.]
Tony Stark: [To the struggling Star-Lord] Hey, stop! Hey, stop! Stop! Hey, stop! Stop!
Peter Parker: It's coming! It's coming! It's coming! [Getting the fingers completely loose] I got it! I got it–!
[Thanos wakes completely, now well and truly furious. He head-butts Mantis, grabbing the cuff of the gauntlet just as it is sliding off his hand, causing Spider-Man to stumble back, and then throwing Mantis away off his shoulders.]
Peter Parker: [Seeing Mantis with far too much air under her] Oh, God. [He jumps and wraps his arms and legs around her, extending his spider legs to form a roll cage for a safe landing.]

Rocket: [Having found a clear spot] Come and get some, space dogs! [Another wave of Outriders heads right for the raccoon-oid. The Winter Soldier, having come up behind Rocket, grabs him with his mechanical arm, holds him at arms length and spins 540 degrees, firing his own M-249 at the same time.] Come on, get some, get some! Come on, get some! [The Winter Soldier drops Rocket, who looks up at him with an impressed gleam] How much for the gun?
Bucky Barnes: [snaps off another burst] Not for sale.
Rocket: Okay, how much for the arm? [the Winter Soldier just gives him a look and moves off] Oh, I'll get that arm.
[The tides of battle cause Thor, using Stormbreaker to great effect, and Captain America together. They take a breather.]
Steve Rogers: [panting] New haircut?
Thor: [grinning] Notice you've copied my beard.
[Captain America nods, wearily gesturing at his own face with a shield-covered hand. Groot skewers three Outriders with his right arm.]
Thor: By the way, this is a friend of mine. Tree. [Gestures towards Groot with Stormbreaker]
Groot: [in full battle snarl] I am Groot!
Steve Rogers: [formally, but bemused] I am Steve Rogers.

[As Vision fights Corvus Glaive, he breaks the window and falls]
Falcon: [seeing Vision being attacked] Guys, we got a Vision situation here!
Captain America: Somebody get to Vision!
Bruce Banner: [flying toward him] I got him!
Wanda Maximoff: On my way.
[Proxima Midnight suddenly knocks her into a ditch and rolls her over]
Proxima Midnight: He'll die alone. As will you.
Black Widow: She's not alone.
[Widow and Okoye surround Proxima on both sides, Corvus Glaine fights Vision continues and Cull Obsidian attacks him, and Bruce Banner halts Cull Obsidian.]
Bruce Banner: Oh, no. Oh no you don't. This isn't gonna be like New York, pal. This suit's already kicked the crap outta the Hulk!
[Bruce Banner fights Cull Obsidian and calls Vision for help.]
Bruce Banner: Guys! Vision needs backup now!
[Bruce Banner continues fighting Cull Obsidian.]
Bruce Banner: Hulk? Hulk. I knew you like making your entrance at the second. Well, this is it, man. This is the last, last second!
[Cull Obsidian severs the right arm, Banner is about to unleash the Hulk.]
Bruce Banner: Hulk! HULK! HULK!
Bruce Banner: Oh, screw you, you big green asshole! I'll do it myself!
[Bruce continues fighting Cull, eventually trapping him with the Hulkbuster's severed arm.]
Bruce Banner: See ya!
[Bruce launches Cull into Wakanda's force field, completely obliterating him.]
Bruce Banner: Phew. Hulk, we got a lot to figure out, pal.

Thanos: You're full of tricks, wizard.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [As Thanos reaches for the Eye of Agamotto] No!
Thanos: [He snaps the Eye off its chain] Yet you never once used your greatest weapon. [He crushes it in his bare hand] A fake. [He throws Doctor Strange hard enough that Doctor Strange's head hits stone and he passes out.]
[Almost simultaneously, a red and gold device slaps into the palm of the Infinity Gauntlet, bracing the fingers open; and a red and gold Avenger makes a fast and hard entrance.]
Tony Stark: You throw another moon at me, and I'm gonna to lose it.
Thanos: Stark.
Stark: You know me?
Thanos: I do. You're not the only one cursed with knowledge.
Stark: My only curse is you.
Thanos: Come on!
[The rockets all explode on target, momentarily shrouding Thanos in smoke. Before it clears, Iron Man pile drives into Thanos horizontally, using his single super-jet boot configuration. As he bounces off, he flips and sticks his landing, immediately re-configuring his boots into ground clamps for stability and his gloves into rocket-driven battering rams, punching Thanos into a ruined wall behind him.]
[Thanos shakes it off quickly, reaches forward and tears Iron Man's helmet off, revealing Tony's surprised expression before the suit recovers automatically and re-forms his head protection. The Titan makes use of the fractional delay and punches back hard, sending Iron Man sliding meters away, giving Thanos time to rip the brace device off the gauntlet. He immediately uses the Power Stone to stream furiously lambent energy at his opponent, who forms a shield to kneel behind just as instantly, getting pushed back even further by the incredible force.]
[Iron Man slides out from behind the shield, letting the angled energy push him away for a faster start, and whips back to Thanos full thrusters; he kicks at the Titan with his left foot, turning the boot into a ground clamp at the same time to pin the gauntlet, and keeps twisting while his left glove becomes a ram again, slamming into Thanos' face, cutting his cheek.]
Thanos: [Wiping at wound on his cheek] All that for a drop of blood.
[He smiles briefly punches Iron Man, sending him pinwheeling, then starts beating him with his fists. Iron Man attempts to block the blows with his forearms, but Thanos is relentless, picking him up by the helmet and blasting his midsection with the Power Stone. The gaps in nanite coverage are now gaping, as the armor loses the ability to recover from the intensity and extent of the damage. Iron Man lands hard from the Power blast, struggles to one knee and fires his right hand repulsor at the inexorable Thanos; the beam is easily deflected by the gauntlet. He gets to both feet as the suit tries to complete repairs, adding the beam from his left hand as well. Thanos walks right up to him, and backhands the incomplete helmet completely off Tony's head. He crosses his arms to block a blow from Thanos' gauntlet, and has his left hand caught over his head. In desperation, he forms what's left of his right glove into a short-sword, which is also easily caught by Thanos, snapping it off clean and driving it through Tony's left side. The fight is over.]
Thanos: [Thanos walks Tony back until he sits, and places the gauntlet almost comfortingly on Tony's head.] You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you.
[Tony's just a little distracted with the pain, and blood drooling out of his mouth, and compromised breathing.]
[Thanos raises the gauntlet, closing his fist, all four Stones glowing]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Stop! [Sitting up and sounding entirely damaged] Spare his life, and I will give you the stone.
Thanos: No tricks. [Doctor Strange shakes his head as Thanos points all four Stones at him instead.]
Tony Stark: Don't–!
[Doctor Strange reaches up and plucks the Time Stone out of its hiding place in the stars. He opens his hand, the scars on his fingers and their inherent trembling particularly obvious now, and the Stone floats to Thanos' bare hand. Doctor Strange watches him intently, as he takes the Stone and drops it into the thumb setting, the energy pulse making the Titan wince.]
Thanos: One to go. [An energy blast hits the gauntlet right in the empty Mind Stone setting, and Thanos grimaces in surprise.]
Quill: [Screaming in incoherent rage, helmet up, firing with both hands and flying straight for Thanos.]
[Thanos doesn't even bother responding to the assault – he just leaves. Star-Lord flies through where Thanos had been and crashes, rolling several times]
Peter Quill: [Standing and de-helmeting] Where is he?!
[Tony stitches up his stab wound as well as he can with his suit functions; he has no breath for answers.]
Peter Quill: [Now fearful instead of furious] Did we just lose?
Stark: Why'd you do that?
Strange: We are in the endgame now.'
Scarlet Witch: [runs to Vision, in concern] Are you okay?!
Vision: [gasps in pain as the mind stone quirks]
Scarlet Witch: What?! What is it?
Vision: He's here.
Steve Rodgers: Everyone on my position, we have incoming.
Black Widow: What the hell...?
Hulk: [turns around to see Thanos entering Wakanda via Space stone] Yep... that's him.
Steve Rodgers: Eyes up! Stay sharp!
Vision: [To scarlet Witch in concern for the Mind stone] Wanda, it's time.
Scarlet Witch: No, don't.
Vision: We can't stop him, we can't. Look at me, you have the power to destroy the stone, you must do it, please... we are out of time.
Scarlet Witch: I can't.
Vision: You can, if he gets the stone half the Universe dies. It shouldn't be you, but it is, it's alright, you could never hurt me.
Scarlet Witch: [begins to destroy the Mind stone, whilst holding Thanos away]
Thanos: [Thanos defeats all Avengers excluding Thor with the Gauntlet]
Steve Rodgers: [attempts to hold Thanos back, gets punched in face by Thanos]
Vision: [to Scarlet Witch before dying] I love you.
Thanos: [Walking closer to the Scarlet Witch] I understand, my child. Better than anyone.
Wanda Maximoff: [Snarls] You... could never.
Thanos: [Reaches down to presume to stroke her hair, as if in comfort] Today, I lost more than you can know. But now is no time to mourn. Now... is no time at all. [He reaches forward, clenching the gauntlet, emerald filigree surrounding his wrist, making a gesture very similar to that Doctor Strange made when activating the Eye of Agamotto. In response, a bead of yellow light starts gathering in on itself as time is reversed and growing in size, solidifying into an intact and conscious Vision]
Wanda Maximoff: NO!!! [She lunges for Vision, but is swatted away]
[Thanos picks up Vision by the throat, lifting him to eye-level, and digs the fingers of his right hand into Vision's forehead, digging out the Mind Stone. He pulls it loose, and Vision goes limp and colorless; he tosses the lifeless android aside like trash. Bringing his gauntleted hand up, he slowly moves the Mind Stone over the last empty setting, and drops it in. The energy surge is much more than any previous – his torso is wreathed with iridescent static and he bellows from the sensations.]
[As Thanos studies the completed gauntlet, a massive bolt of lightning strikes him, digging him into the ground and grinding him back for meters. Thor has arrived, eyes glowing with power, stooping down from the sky like a bird of prey. The God of Thunder pauses his attack, reverses his position, raises Stormbreaker above his head and hurls it – Thanos fires the whole might of the gauntlet against it, but it only creates a rainbow-like bow-shock, not slowing the ax as it slams right into Thanos' chest. ]
Thor: I told you... You'd die for that!
[He takes hold of the back of Thanos's head and forces Stormbreaker deeper into his chest, staring angrily into his eyes while Thanos cries out in pain]
Thanos: You... should have gone for the head!
[He holds up his hand and snaps his fingers]
Thor: NO!
[Thanos is now briefly inside the Soulworld, where he sees a young Gamora on the home world of the Zen Whoberi]
Thanos: Daughter?
Gamora: Did you do it?
Thanos: Yes.
Gamora: [Beat] What did it cost?
Thanos: [Solemly] ...Everything.
[out of the Soulworld, Thanos comes back into reality, notices the damages inflicted on the scorched Gauntlet, and the stones are no longer glowing as he is severely wounded by the snap and Stormbreaker]
Thor: What did you do? WHAT DID YOU DO?!
[Thanos closes his fist, Using the Space Stone to teleport away, leaving Thor left on the Wakandan field]
Captain America: [Stumbles into the clearing, holding his left side] Where'd he go? Thor, where'd he go?
Bucky Barnes: Steve?
[Bucky suddenly collapses into a pile of ashes. Steve walks over and touches the ground where Bucky's ashes evaporated unbelievably. On the battlefield, Wakankan soldiers disintegrate to ashes, much to M'Baku's horror]
T'Challa: [While reaching for a fallen Okoye] Up, General! Up! This is no place to die. [He holds out his hand for Okoye. But T'Challa then turns into ashes and an anguish Okoye falls back on the ground]
Okoye: Kumkani?!
Groot: [Slowly corroding into ashes as well] I... am... Groot... (Translation: "Dad?")
Okoye: [Off-screen] KUMKANI!
Rocket: No. No, no, no, no! Groot... No...
[Scarlet Witch is mourning over Vision. She then turns into ashes. An injured Falcon turns to ashes, hidden in the brush]
War Machine: [Searching for Falcon, missing him by only a few feet] Sam!
[Okoye is seen hyperventilating fearfully over T'Challa's disappearance]
War Machine: [Off-screen] Sam, where you at?!
[Back on Titan, the remaining members of the Guardians and Avengers help themselves up from their battle against Thanos they had lost]
Mantis: Something's happening. [She gets disintegrated into ashes]
Drax: Quill?
[Drax gets disintegrated next]
Tony Stark: Steady, Quill.
Peter Quill: [Staring around in horror] Aw, man.
[Quill turns into ashes also]
Dr. Strange: Tony. [Tony turns to Dr. Strange] There was no other way. [Finally gets erased]
Peter Parker: [Realizing that he's fading away] Mr. Stark? I don't feel so good...
Tony Stark: [Trying to be calm] You're alright.
Peter Parker: [Stumbling and terrified] I don't... I don't know what's happening. I don't... [Parker falls into Stark's arms, clutching him tight and crying] I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go! Sir, please. Please, I don't wanna go. I don't wanna go. [Drops to the ground] I'm sorry.
[Parker disintegrates into ashes in Stark's arms.]
Nebula: [To Tony Stark, seeing Thanos' victory] He did it.
[Stark mourns silently at their failure it caused, as Nebula sits down next to him. Back on Wakanda, the remaining team members, Captain America, Thor, War Machine, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, and Rocket are left mourning near Vision's dead body.]
War Machine: What is this? What the hell is happening?
Captain America: [Heartbroken and devastated] Oh, God.
[Meanwhile, on Planet 0259-S, in a wooden, rustic house on a grassy mountain range with a terraced slope and a scarecrow made of discarded armor, Thanos sits down and watches the sun rise, he takes a deep breath as He smiles at the sunrise in peace.]

[Last lines]
Nick Fury: Still no word from Stark?
Maria Hill: No, not yet. We're watching every satellite in both hemispheres, there's still nothing. [Receives three beeps from her device]
Fury: What is it?
Hill: Multiple bogeys, over Wakanda.
Fury: Same energy signatures as New York?
Hill: Ten times bigger.
Fury: Tell Klein. We'll meet him at–
Hill: Nick!
[Suddenly, a car spirals out of control into them. Hill goes over to check on the driver of the car, but sees no one is in there]
Fury: They okay?
Hill: There's no one here.
[Suddenly, a helicopter, with ash flying out, crashes into a building. The two are now witnessing civilians around them suddenly disintegrating]
Fury: Call Control. Code red!
Hill: Nick?
[Fury turns around to see Hill turning to ashes]
Fury: Hill?
[Fury then races back to their car and pulls out a pager. He sends out an emergency alert, mere seconds before his hand turns into ashes.]
Fury: Oh, no. Motherfu-
[ Before he could finish the line, Fury corrodes to dust. The pager falls to the ground, red lights blinking on the additions; the camera zooms in and we see the device display "SENDING..." then display a red-blue-and-gold star insignia – indicating the symbol of Captain Marvel]
Thanos will return.


  • Destiny arrives.
  • An entire universe. Once and for all.
  • Where will you be, when it all ends?
