Tony Stark / Iron Man[edit]

  • [to Doctor Strange] Did you seriously just say "Hitherto undreamt of"?
  • ["knighting" Peter Parker on the shoulders with his hand] Alright, kid. You're an Avenger now.


  • 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.

Bruce Banner / The Hulk[edit]

  • [trying to change into the Hulk in New York] C'mon, Hulk. What're you doin' to me? [starts slapping himself multiple times] Come out! Come out! COME OUT! [Hulk: NOOOO!] What do you mean, "no"?!
  • [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!

Steve Rogers / Captain America[edit]

  • [to General 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 the Vision offers to sacrifice himself to stop Thanos] We don't trade lives, Vision.

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow[edit]

  • [to Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight] We don't wanna kill you. But we will.


  • 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.


  • I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right...yet to fail none the less. [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]
  • The hardest choices require the strongest wills.
  • [to Tony Stark] You're not the only one cursed with knowledge.
  • [having just defeated Tony Stark in hand-to-hand combat] You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half the human population will still be alive. [prepares to kill Stark] I hope they remember you.


[First Lines]
Asgardian PA: This is the Asgardian refugee vessel Statesman. We are under assault, I repeat, we are under assault - The engines are dead, life support failing. Requesting aid from any vessel within range. We are 22 jump points out of Asgard. [The voice becomes more desperate and pleading] Our crew is made up of Asgardian families, we have very few soldiers here. This is not a warcraft. I repeat, this is not a warcraft!
[Inside the ship, Ebony Maw walks among the bodies of dead Asgardians. Heimdall, badly wounded, reaches out as if he would stop Maw as he passes, but lacks the strength. Maw steps over them with no mind as he speaks, as if they were scattered pieces of dirty clothing on a bedroom floor.]
Ebony Maw: Hear me, and rejoice! You have had the privilege... of being saved by the Great Titan. You may think this is suffering. No...it is salvation. The universal scales... tip toward balance because of your sacrifice. Smile- [Corvus Glaive stabs one of the lingering Asgardians] for even in death... you have become children of Thanos.
[Loki stands with the Black Order. He watches Thanos, shrouded in darkness and light, a vague silhouette.]
Thanos: [Looking out the large window we saw at the end of Thor: Ragnarok] I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right... yet to fail, nonetheless. [Lifts Thor by the neck of his breastplate. Thor struggles feebly.] It's frightening, turns the legs to jelly. 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.
[Thanos holds up his hand to reveal the Infinity Gauntlet, which already hosts the violet Power Stone.]
Thor: [Now being held by Thanos with one huge hand wrapping around his head; blood drools from his mouth] You talk too much.
Thanos: [To Loki] The Tesseract, or your brother's head. I assume you have a preference.
[The Black Order heft their weapons or smirks, as appropriate.]
Loki: Oh, I do. Kill away.
[Thanos' face expresses surprise briefly before presses the gauntlet to Thor's left temple. The Power Stone glows brightly. Thor screams hoarsely.]
Loki: [Starts losing his cool demeanor almost immediately as Thor suffers, and breaks after only a few moments] ALL RIGHT, STOP!
Thor: We don't have the Tesseract. It was destroyed on Asgard.
[Loki glances at Thor like he knows something he doesn't. He lifts his right hand into the air and the Tesseract reveals itself.]
Thor: You really are the worst brother.
Loki: [While holding the Tesseract out to Thanos and advancing] I assure you, brother... the sun will shine on us again.
Thanos: Your optimism is misplaced, Asgardian.
Loki: Well, for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another... we have a Hulk.
[Thanos looks to his right just as a green and very angry mass slams into him. Loki dives for Thor, pulling both of them out of the way as the Tesseract skitters across the floor, and the Hulk charges Thanos. The Hulk pummels Thanos, forcing him backwards and shoving him into the wall of the ship. Maw stops Cull Obsidian from interfering.]
Ebony Maw: Let him have his fun.
[Thanos pries the Hulk's hands away; an expression of surprise and fear crosses his green face. After several hard blows, Thanos picks up the Hulk and slams him to the deck, defeated. Thor slams a metal bar across Thanos' back to no avail, is kicked across the deck by Thanos and is promptly bound in metal debris by Ebony Maw to keep him from interfering further.]
Heimdall: [Prays] Allfathers… let the dark magic flow through me one last... time.
[Heimdall summons the Bifrost, which carries the Hulk away; he meets Thor's eye.]
Thanos: That was a mistake.
[Thanos borrows Corvus's glaive and stabs Heimdall through the heart, twisting the blade in the wound.]
Thor: NO!!! [After Thanos kills Heimdall] You're going to die for that!
Ebony Maw: [Shuts with a gag in Thor's mouth with his telekinesis] Shh.
Ebony Maw: [Kneels before Thanos, offering up the Tesseract] My humble personage… bows before your grandeur. No other being has ever had the might, nay the nobility, to wield not one, but two Infinity Stones. The universe lies within your grasp.
[Thanos crushes the Tesseract, revealing the blue Space Stone. He blows some of the fractals away, fingering the Stone between his thumb and index, before placing it on the gauntlet, and is momentarily rocked by the surge of energy that pulses as the stone seats in its setting.]
Thanos: There are two more Stones on Earth. Find them, my children, and bring them to me on Titan.
Proxima Midnight: [Kneeling] Father, we will not fail you.
Loki: [Emerging from behind the Black Order] [cheerfully] If I might interject… if you're going to Earth, you might want a guide. I do have a bit of experience in that arena.
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] N-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 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 in 2012, 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 Parker: [To Tony] Hey, what's going on?
Dr. Stephen Strange: I think we're here.
Tony Stark: I don't think this rig has a self-park function. [Urgently] Get your hand into this steering gimbal. Close those around it. You understand?
Peter Parker: Yep, got it.
Tony Stark: This was meant for one big guy, so we gotta to move at the same time.
Peter Parker: Okay. Okay. Ready.
[The ringship is heading straight for the center of what looks like one of a colossal game of jacks.]
Peter Parker: We might wanna turn. Turn! Turn! Turn!!
[Iron Man armors up as the ringship clips the "jack" obliquely, but still losing a good third of its hull in the collision. Spider-Man throws up his helmet at the same time. Doctor Strange steps between them and creates the Shield of the Seraphim around them all, anticipating a rough landing.]
[The ship, now reduced to about 45%, plows through the dirt and stops, leaning slightly to one side. Screen title: TITAN.]
[Doctor Strange helps Tony, now de-helmeted, to his feet; they're both panting a little from the exertion of arrival.]
Tony Stark: [To Doctor Strange] You alright? [Panting] That was close. I owe you one.
[Spider-Man descends from above in classically 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] 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.
[A grenade rolls into view, and Peter, Strange and Tony get thrown well back when it fires its energy pulse. Star-Lord, Drax, and Mantis appear in the doorway]
Drax: [Yelling] THANOS!!!! [He flings a blade at Doctor Strange, who neatly deflects it with a mystical shield, and in return sends the Cloak of Levitation at Drax's face, half-smothering him and throwing him to the floor. Star-Lord and Iron Man have a brief dogfight until a magnetic disc pins Iron Man face-first to a structure.]
Peter Parker: [Crawling backwards frantically from an anxious-looking Mantis] AH! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! PLEASE DON'T PUT YOUR EGGS IN ME!
[Spider-Man shoots web at Mantis in a panic, pinning arms to her body just before Star-Lord flies at him feet-first, kicking him away.]
Peter Quill: Stay down, clown!
[Star-Lord can't quite counter spider reflexes at first; he fires at Spider-Man, who extends his spider legs and leaps away, but an electric-like cord wraps around Spider-Man and his six new legs when he tries to attack, sending him rolling across the deck.]
Drax: [Struggling with the Cloak of Levitation] Die, blanket of death!
[Iron Man pulls free of the magnet; the Cloak pulls free of Drax as soon as Iron Man has a bead on his opponent and a foot on his torso.]
[Star-Lord has Spider-Man in a head-lock, gun pointed at the smaller man's head.]
[Doctor Strange has a mystical shield of golden energy up, and stands ready at the third point of the triangle. Mantis has struggled to her feet behind Star-Lord, still covered with webbing.]
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?

Ebony Maw: In all the time I've served Thanos, I've never failed him. If I were to reach our rendezvous on Titan with the Time Stone still attached to your vaguely irritating person, there would be... judgement. [The needles start to contact Dr. Strange's face, causing an obviously painful whitish subcutaneous glow at each touch] Give me... the stone.
[Cut to Tony who is watching, hidden, from above. The Cloak of Levitation taps Stark on the arm. He raises his hand to it, ready to shoot, but he sees what it is and stands down.]
Tony Stark: Wow, you're a seriously loyal piece of outerwear, aren't you?
Peter Parker: Yeah, uh, speaking of loyalty....
[Tony and the Cloak turn to face Peter, dropping down from above]
Tony Stark: What the--
Peter Parker: I know what you're gonna say.
Tony Stark: You should not be here.
[The Cloak moves to "stand" at Tony's side]
Peter Parker: I was gonna go home--
Tony Stark: I don't wanna hear it.
Peter Parker: But it was such a long way down and I just thought about you on the way...
Tony Stark: And now I gotta hear it.
[The Cloak shakes its collar in sympathy and shrugs]
Peter Parker: ...And I kinda stuck to the side of the ship. And this suit is ridiculously intuitive, by the way. So if anything, it's kinda your fault that I'm here.
[The Cloak looks shocked.]
Tony Stark: [Seriously] What did you just say?
Peter Parker: I take that back. And now I'm here in space.
Tony Stark: Yeah. [Tony crosses to stand right in front of Peter] Right where I don't want you to be. This isn't Coney Island. This isn't a field trip. It's one-way ticket. You hear me? Don't pretend like you thought this through. You could not have possibly thought this through.
Peter Parker: No. I did think this through.
Tony Stark: You could not have possibly thought this through.
Peter Parker: It's just .. you can't be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man when there's no neighborhood. [He waits for Tony's reaction] Okay. That didn't really make any sense, but you know what I'm trying to say.
Tony Stark: [Breaths shakily] Come on. We got a situation. [He 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 groans 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.
[Iron Man fires a rocket from his shoulder which pierces the side of the ship to Maw's right and begins to suck everything out with depressurization, especially Maw and his large objects. Dr. Strange is pulled loose of his pinnings, loses the needles, but also heads for the hole, helpless to resist. The Cape wraps around his arm and an anchor point, but Dr. Strange's arm slips loose and he keeps going. Spider-Man shoots a web strand at Dr. Strange with one hand and holds onto a piece of the ship with the other. It breaks, sending them both towards space when his Iron-Spider suit's metal arms brace him to keep him from being sucked out. Fortunately, Dr. Strange is still surrounded by the ship's atmosphere making haste to leave.]
Peter Parker: Yes! Wait what are those?!
[Spider-Man crouches with his new spider-legs, and makes a mighty leap to pulls them both back inside. Iron Man quickly sprays nanites onto the hole to plug it up. Dr. Strange safely, if emphatically, hits the floor. Ebony Maw is seen floating in space, quite dead, ice from the escaped atmosphere frosting over his grimace. Spider-Man lands on his new legs, retracts them, and finds the Cape "standing" next to him.]
Peter Parker: Hey, we haven't officially me ? [He offers the Cape his hand to shake. It ignores his offer and continues to Dr. Strange.] Cool.
[Iron Man walks past Dr. Strange, shaking his head and with his armor retreating into its containment as Dr. Strange gets to his feet and becomes en-Cloaked.]
Dr. Stephen Strange: We've gotta turn this ship around.
Tony Stark: Yeah. Now he wants to run. Great plan.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, I want to protect the stone.
[Tony walks towards the expansive front view-port, showing a hyper speed/warp effect.]
Tony Stark: [Irritably] And I want you to thank me now. Go ahead, I'm listening.
Dr. Stephen Strange: For what? Nearly blasting me into space?
Tony Stark: Who just saved your magical ass? Me.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I seriously don't know how you fit your head into that helmet.
Tony Stark: Admit it. You should have ducked out when I told you to. I tried to bench you. You refused.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Unlike everyone else in your life, I don't work for you.
Tony Stark: And due to that fact, we're now in a flying doughnut billions of miles away from Earth with no backup.
[Seriously, these two's egos are a recipe for disaster.]
Peter Parker: [Raises his hand] I'm backup.
Tony Stark: No. You're a stowaway. [Waggles a finger between himself and Dr. Strange] The adults are talking.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I'm sorry, I'm confused as to the relationship here. Wh-- what is he, your ward?
Peter Parker: No. I'm Peter, by the way.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Dr. Strange.
Peter Parker: Oh, we're using our made-up names. Um... I'm Spider-Man, then.
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.]

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 -- a cybernetic version of the medieval torture rack. Hannibal Lecter level of brutality.]
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 -- 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.
[Cut to the pod taking Thor, Rocket and Groot 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!

[Thanos emerges from a teleport on the ruined Titan]
Dr. Strange: Oh, yeah, you're much more of a "Thanos".
Thanos: I take it the Maw is dead? This day extracts a heavy toll. Still, he accomplished his mission.
Dr. Strange: You may regret that. He brought you face-to-face with the Master of the Mystic Arts.
Thanos: Where do you think he brought you?
Dr. Strange: Let me guess. Your home?
Thanos: It was. [activates the Reality Stone, showing a holographic image of a populated Titan] 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.
Dr. Strange: Genocide.
Thanos: At random. Dispassionate, fair to rich and poor alike. They called me a madman. And what I predicted came to pass.
Dr. Strange: Congratulations. You're a prophet.
Thanos: I'm a survivor.
Strange: Who wants to murder trillions.
Thanos: With all six stones, I could simply snap my fingers; they would all cease to exist. I call that... mercy.
Dr. Strange: Then what?
Thanos: I finally rest, and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest wills.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [He summons his Mandalas, entering a fighting pose] I think... you'll find... our will... equal to yours.
Thanos: Ours? [He looks up to a see a chunk of wreckage descending rapidly on him, too rapidly to react -- and powered by Iron Man. He is subsequently crushed by it.]
Tony Stark: [Flying in] Piece of cake, Quill.
Peter Quill: [Triggers his mask and follows] Yeah, if your goal was to piss him off!
[The wreckage on top of Thanos erupts in purple, as he bellows in rage. He turns the hovering fragments into a flock of bats with the Reality Stone and swarms Iron Man with them driving him back through the ruins.]
[Spider-Man webs his eyes, and swings in to kick him in the face at the same time that Drax leaps from cover, blades in both hands, to knee-slide behind Thanos and try for a tendon slide across the back of the Titan's knee.]
[Doctor Strange jumps through a portal and summons a sword of golden energy, dueling with Thanos while Drax attacks similarly on his other side. Thanos punches Drax through a ruined wall, then shatters the blade with one hand and tears the web from his eyes. He advances on Doctor Strange and kicks at him, but Strange's shield absorbs the damage -- the Cloak lifts him free of the ground.]
[Star-Lord has been making his way back on the ground, and shoots Thanos from behind. Thanos uses the Power Stone to shoot balls of energy at Star-Lord while Star-Lord leaps towards Thanos using magical platforms thrown in his path by Doctor Strange, the last one placed above Thanos' head so Star-Lord can flip over him and slap a mine on Thanos' back. Star-Lord sticks his landing, he disengages his helmet, flips Thanos a bird and falls backward into a portal.]
Peter Quill: Boom!
[The explosion knocks Thanos to his knees and dazes him briefly.]
Dr. Stephen Strange: [Whispers to the Cloak of Levitation] Do not let him close his fist. [The Cloak swoops off Doctor Strange's shoulders and wraps itself tightly around Thanos' armored hand, who starts tugging at this unexpected wrapping.]
[Doctor Strange starts throwing portals everywhere. Spider-Man leaps through one on Thanos' left]
Peter Parker: Magic! [He punches Thanos in the head and vanishes through a portal to the lower right before reappearing above Thanos] More magic! [He yanks Thanos' head down hard, then leaps into a portal in front of him. He leaps through another portal high and behind Thanos] Magic with a kick! [Delivers a flying kick and falls feet-first into an exit, then appears on his right] Magic with a--
[Before he can finish Thanos turns, grabbing him from the air, and throwing him to the ground, with his hand around his neck.]
Thanos: Insect!
[He then throws him at Doctor Strange, knocking them both down. Thanos finally tears the Cloak away and is then promptly surrounded by fiery explosions as Iron Man bombards him. He sucks all the flame into the gauntlet with the Power Stone and fires it in a stream at Iron Man, hitting him dead on and sending him far away, plowing through a massive fallen machine.]
[Spider-Man leaps from behind, more conventionally this time, while Thanos concentrates his fire on Iron Man, webs the gauntlet and drops down in front of him, pulling hard -- but Thanos yanks on the web-line, pulling the much lighter teenager towards him, and punching him on his way past. He tears the webbing free of the gauntlet just in time for a small spaceship to attempt to crash-land on him.]
[The ship drags Thanos along for a distance, burying him under debris. He stands just as the pilot leaps in a great arc to punch him, landing in front of him with an energy-blade at the ready.]
Thanos: Well, well.
Nebula: You should have killed me.
Thanos: It would've been a waste of parts!
Nebula: [She runs at Thanos, attacking him with her sword] Where's Gamora?!
[Thanos punches her away. Doctor Strange uses the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak to pinion the gauntlet, pulling Thanos' fingers open and trying to pry the gauntlet off his hand.]
[Thanos tries to pull free, as Drax slides in from his right, kicking his knee and knocking him off-balance, then wrapping himself around Thanos' kneeling leg.]
[Star-Lord shoots a electric trap onto the ground to Thanos' right, the tangle-field holding down his unarmored hand.]
[Spider-Man swings in, webs Thanos' chest then wraps it around behind him, digging his Iron Spider legs into the ground to anchor himself.]
[Doctor Strange opens a portal straight above Thanos' out of which drops Mantis, landing on the Titan's shoulders, her hands on his temples. He bellows as she tries to put him :under.]
[Iron Man, having returned, is pulling on the gauntlet. Doctor Strange reapplies the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak to reinforce the trap's hold on Thanos' right hand, and the Cloak helps him pull. Thanos is finally subdued enough to incapacitate, not fully asleep.]
Tony Stark: [While pulling] Is he under? Don't let up.
Mantis: [Starting to cry] 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.
Peter Quill: [Flies over to join the others, 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… 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: [Frasps 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.]

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.
[They fight]
Thanos: [wiping at wound on his cheek] All that for a drop of blood. [Thanos impales Stark with his own blade] You have my respect, Stark. When I'm done, half of humanity will still be alive. I hope they remember you.

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: [sadly turns to Dr. Strange, who has given the Time Stone to Thanos] Why'd you do that?
Strange: We are in the endgame now.

[Thanos has just got the Infinity Stones, Thor suddenly hurls Stormbreaker and the axe goes right into Thanos's 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... you... 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.
[Now out of the Soulworld, Thanos is snapped back into reality, notices the damages inflicted on the scorched Gauntlet, and the stones are no longer glowing]
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?")
Rocket: No, Groot... no, no, no, no! Oh... 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! 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 is happening. [she gets disintegrated into ashes]
Drax: Quill?
[Drax gets disintegrated next]
Tony Stark: Steady, Quill.
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]
Parker: [realizing that he's fading away] Mr. Stark? I don't feel so good...
Tony Stark: [trying to be calm] You're all right.
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] Save me, save me! I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go, Mr. Stark, please. Please, I don't wanna go. I don't wanna go. 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. 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: [pause] Oh, God.
[Meanwhile, on a different planet, Thanos walks out of a hut, sits down, and watches the sun rise]

[Last lines]
Maria Hill: Patching through to Colonel Rhodes for an update.
Nick Fury: Still no word from Stark?
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? Something's happening.
[Fury turns around to see Hill turning to ashes]
Fury: Hill?
[Fury then races back to their car and gets a pager out. He sends out an emergency alert, mere seconds before his hand turns into ashes]
Fury: Oh, no. Motherfu–
[Fury disintegrates into ashes. The pager falls to the ground. We see the device display a red-and-blue star insignia, indicating the symbol of Captain Marvel
