Shuri didn’t survive Infinity War, according to Marvel’s new Avengers: Endgame poster

This is really rude, Marvel.

For almost a year, Marvel fans have had to deal with the idea that their favorite cinematic superheroes were turned to dust after Thanos’s snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Black Panther, Falcon, Bucky, Spider-Man — all dead. That’s what makes next month’s Avengers: Endgame so enticing: The remainder of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have to find a way to bring their friends, and half of the universe’s life, back from the dead.

We thought we’d seen all the carnage. Leave it to Marvel to introduce an infuriating wrinkle (and a savvy marketing ploy) one month ahead of Endgame: It turns out that Shuri, the beloved teen genius and technological architect of Wakanda, is among the dead.

Marvel released a plethora of character posters on Tuesday, exactly one month ahead of Endgame, that say “Avenge the fallen.” The characters appearing in color — Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Captain Marvel, among others — are characters alive post-snap. Shuri’s poster is in black and white (above), as are those featuring heroes like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Loki, and Groot — who were all vaporized during Infinity War, seemingly confirming Shuri, too, was dusted.

Shuri also appears as one of the “missing” in the first Endgame trailer:

Prior to these posters, though, there was reason to believe Shuri wasn’t dead.

She wasn’t dusted onscreen, leading fans to believe she may have survived the snap. Further, Angela Bassett, who plays Shuri and Black Panther’s mother Ramonda, said in an interview with Screen Rant that both her character and Shuri are still alive following Infinity War. This poster seems to indicate that Bassett may not be the final word when it comes to Marvel storylines.

Because Shuri is so beloved, some fans are annoyed at this new development. But the fate of Shuri and the rest of the dusted heroes will be truly decided in Endgame, which hits theaters on April 26, 2019.

How to get better at predicting the future

Forecasting world events is crucial for policy. A new study explores how to do it better. Wouldn’t it be great if we could see into the future? Imagine being able to estimate the effects of political events and every policy we considered. Raising interest rates, passing a bill, starting a war — if we could forecast their outcomes, we would all be so much better off. That’s one of the hopes experts hold about prediction markets. There’s a very simple idea behind them: Just like you can bet on sports, you can bet on, well, anything you want, from “fewer than 10 million Americans will be uninsured in 2025 if this bill passes” to “migration from Central America will increase” to “this new cancer study will fail to replicate.” The point is that you can make money by making good bets. And that incentive is what can make prediction markets a pretty good forecaster of what’s to come. That’s the idea anyway. Real-world prediction markets are interesting, but they don’t fully live up to tha..
