Before Captain Marvel and Ant-Man joined this group of heroes in their fight against Thanos, the Avengers worked in a few smaller groups for the 2018 blockbuster, Infinity War. The end result was some hilarious quotes, some unexpected friendships, and a heartbreaking ending.
From Peter Parker’s “pop culture references” to Okoye’s Starbucks shoutout to Tony Stark calling someone “Squidward,” here are a few fan-favorite quotes from Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.
“When you said you were going to open Wakanda to the rest of the world, this is not what I imagined.”
What did Okoye imagine, T’Challa asks. Okoye responds, saying maybe the Olympics or a Starbucks. Instead, Wakanda became overrun with Thanos’ army and a few of the Avengers trying to defend the last of the Infinity Stones, Vision’s Mind Stone. Thanks to T’Challa’s sister, Shuri, the stone was almost destroyed before Thanos could get it. Almost.
“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.”
One of the most emotional parts of the Marvel film is when Thanos snaps his fingers. Spider-Man starts feeling the impact right away and grabs onto Tony Stark. He doesn’t want to go, he explains, hugging his mentor. He apologizes right before disappearing — talk about heartbreaking. Don’t worry, though, he comes back in the next movie.
“He means get lost, Squidward.”
When Thanos’ child attempts to take the Time Stone from Doctor Strange, of course, there’s going to be some disagreements and snarky remarks from Tony Stark. This quote comes at the beginning of Infinity War, referencing one of the characters from Nickelodeon’s cartoon series, Spongebob Squarepants.
“You ever see this really old movie ‘Aliens?’”
Peter Parker sure loves his pop culture references. When fans first met Spider-Man during Captain America: Civil War, he suggested a fighting technique from this “really old movie” Empire Strikes Back. War Machine was pretty surprised at how young he was. He might’ve aged a little bit by Infinity War, but he still loves movies.
When Doctor Strange is held up by one of Thanos’ children, Peter Parker suggests another idea from the movie Aliens. Later, he makes another movie reference to Footloose when Peter Quill is talking about his dance-off. Peter Quill asks him if it’s still the greatest movie of all time. Spider-Man says that it never was.
“‘What master do I serve?’ What am I supposed to say? Jesus?”
Throw together the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy and it’s sure to be an interesting time. When they both think they’re fighting Thanos’ henchmen, however, the questions start flying. Where is Gamora? Who is Gamora? Why is Gamora?
When Doctor Strange asks Peter Quill who his master is, his answer prompts an unlikely alliance in the fight against Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War joins the Disney+ streaming library on June 25.
