You may now add two more characters to the list of confirmed characters to have survived Thanos’ snap-in Infinity War.
The author of the book “Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest” , Brandon T. Snider has shared a photo of his book’s front and back cover to celebrate it’s release, which confirms that Dr Erik Selvig and his associate, Darcy Lewis have also survived the Snap and are the lead characters of the book.
“A deadly threat emerged from the cosmos — and it was fulfilled. In the wake of Thanos’s horrifying success, the people of Earth are left reeling in despair and confusion. Without any logical explanation for the blip-out event, those remaining must pick up the pieces.
Doctor Erik Selvig and his associate Darcy Lewis are determined to find and understand the cause of the devastation. With a team of friends both old and new, they embark on a pursuit of knowledge, eager to discover the links between their own pasts and the stones that decimated half of humanity — the Infinity Stones. Little do they know that a new foe who threatens to destroy them all is looming….”
While it’s unlikely that this book will have any spoilers for Avengers 4, it’s interesting that it has Selvig in the lead as there’s a fan theory that cropped up on the MarvelStudios Reddit this week which claimed that Selvig will play an important part in taking down Thanos.
The theory by Reddit user mushbert states that Dr Erik Selvig holds the key to take down Thanos. The theory proves all the jumbled notes from his chalkboard in Thor: The Dark World. As it reveals, Selvig has predicted many events at MCU coming true since his mental breakdown in the film.
