Who's most likely living? Who's most likely dying? It all comes down to contracts.

Warning: This article contains spoilers about Avengers: Infinity War, other MARVEL movies, and predictions into upcoming release, Avengers: Endgame.

After MARVEL released Avengers: Infinity War, the hearts of super-hero lovers across the world could be heard breaking after Thanos's final snap; wiping out half of the cinematic universe from our eyes in a blink of a second. With this dramatic final scene, we saw fifteen of our long favorites taken away; the complete list: Loki, Heimdall, Gamora, Vision, Bucky Barnes, T'Challa, Doctor Strange, Spiderman, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Nick Fury, the Wasp, and Shuri. Each have starred in their own respective movies and have led very different courses plot line wise; their absence does more harm than good within the overall story line if Marvel so chooses to make their deaths permanent, hinting at a revival of some sort within the premier of "Avengers: Endgame" coming this year.

Beginning the question, who then cheats death and comes back to the big screens?

From a practical stand point, noting that Marvel has planned the release of a Black Panther sequel as well as a follow up to Spiderman: Homecoming, the deaths of T'Challa, Shuri, and newest Spiderman (played by Tom Holland), their deaths can be taken with a grain of salt, having their return almost guaranteed.

For other characters however, their pictured deaths in Infinity War almost marked their final viewing: sadly, all the actors of Loki, Heimdall, and Vision, their contracts permanently ended by the wishes of the actors and actress to wanting to explore other opportunities; understandable, noting that the MARVEL Avengers franchise has been blooming since its initial 2012 premier.

It is since this premier, and other MARVEL spin-offs, have the creators been able to drop hints for Thanos's ultimate scheme, and the direction it will play coming the release of both premiered "Avengers: Infinity War" and coming "Avengers: End Game". For one hint as an example, the end credits of "Avengers: Age of Ultron", Thor's vision foreshadowed to Thanos's plan on collecting all of the infinity stones, which we saw play out in Infinity War; asking the question, which hints were dropped already, and what could that mean for End Game?

Within the midst of the universe's ultimate snap, this was pictured on more than screen. While the production of Avengers was happening, the new franchise of Ant-Man was created, introducing another character into the universe, and another victim to the snap. The premise of the franchise is the ability for a man to use a suit and become microscopic; however, on accident, he breaks his suit and enters the quantum realm, the place (or really, "size") of no return. Ultimately, Ant-Man is able to save himself, as well as another protagonist, in which they learn the benefits of harnessing energy from that realm, that could help them save a young girl. The post credit scene of the second Ant-Man release pictured Ant-Man surrounded by his team of scientists that make it possible to bring him back from the realm; after he goes in, they all disappear from the snap, except Ant-Man; meaning once again, he is trapped.

Broken hearted fans scattered across the internet hoping to find some semblance of his safety; while in a dire situation, this sets the stage for a new plot that could be uncovered in End Game, where in which Scott may descend into the warned against "Time Vortex" within the quantum realm. Two scenarios can then happen: Ant Man may truly disappear if he descends into the vortex, making the last of his pictured role as well, or, Bill Foster, the only man left alive educated about the quantum realm can help save him.

But again, an issue arises where Bill Foster is unknowledgeable of Ant Man's predicament; and therefore, gives Ant Man the time to absolutely mess up. This almost guarantees the resurfacing of the Time Vortex and Mrs. Van Dyke's warnings about it. Little is known about the Time Vortex other than it being a beacon to avoid; my predictions revolve around it being truly a place of no return, or a hole that allows Ant Man to find past Avengers. If he is then able to escape, there comes an entire new cast potentially capable of reversing Thanos's snap.

As for fan favorites, Captain America or Iron Man, I don't believe it will be the last time seeing them individually, however, it may be the last time seeing both pictured together. In the first movie trailer, a great emphasis was placed on Tony Stark being trapped on the foreign planet, running out of basic necessities and saying his final goodbyes. Strategically, Iron Man's death would be catastrophic to MARVEL, noting he has been one of the longest standing franchise superheroes. However, the actor Robert Downey Jr.'s contract is coming to an end, making it extremely probable for him to choose to not renew it, and thus, have his character truly be killed off. The manner it is done so, definitely not the one pictured in the trailer.

Final goodbyes, especially to such a big character, will normally be grand and unexpected, and thus, to showcase a pivotal part of the movie within its first trailer showcase is highly unlikely resemblance of the true plot. My prediction: Iron Man will escape the planet; he will be able to see the Avenger's again and be part of one final fight, however, following his character of being witty and slightly selfish (note: his original inability to be Iron Man due to his "attitude" by SHIELD); his story arc might come full circle in his own sacrifice for the better good, such as his near death situation in the first Avengers movie.

I do not believe Marvel will return all the characters lost to us; Thanos's snap sent shockwaves through the universe; to simply "clean it up, as new" is improbable. For this reason, I can only expect Tony''s sacrifice to be on the behalf of saving his beloved, his team, Captain America (they hated each other in Civil War; again, coming full circle and completing his character), or for the return of part of the universe.

I expect the movie plot to surface around the potential reversal of the snap, however the plan, as plans always do, will go awry, causing only part of the universe to return. However the movie plays out can only be truly known until its release; both long awaited and worried for.

8 Lyrics From T. Swift's New Song 'You Need To Calm Down' That Will Give Your Instagram The Strong Female Empowerment It Needs

Let this girl-power ballad spark your insta-piration for your next post.

If you've ever experienced cyber-bullying, or if you ever feel caught up in our over-critical society, Tay Swift's new song "You Need To Come Down" is the song for you. While we live in a world with free speech, and especially as a journalist I am all for that, sometimes its best to think before you speak - or tweet. We should all try to be understanding and kind no matter what the circumstance, even if it means not clicking send on some Twitter rants. These lyrics are a friendly reminder to stay calm and focus on what's important.

1. "Say it in the street, that's a knock-out. But you say it in a tweet, that's a cop out."

If this isn't the call-out message of the year on cyber-bullying (in song, at least), I don't know what is.

2. "But I've learned a lesson that stressin' and obsessin' about somebody else is no fun."

We all need to remember at times that getting mixed up in drama isn't fruitful for our lives or growth.

3. "Like can you not step on my gown? You need to calm down."

Don't let the haters control you or stop you from living, just tell those voices to calm down.

4. "Why are you mad when you could be glad?"

Focusing on hate or being critical can be exhausting, and it's better to focus on the good things.

5. "Sunshine on the street at the parade, but you would rather be in the dark ages."

Show people that going into the light is so much easier than they realize when they are stuck in a drama-cloud.

6. "You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace."

Instead of trying to have the last word in every fight, try to be the peace-maker instead.

7. "Control your urges to scream about all the people that you hate."

Hate never made the world go 'round. Hate was never what Jesus spoke about. And some things just aren't worth using energy to yell at.

8. "But we all know now we all got crowns."

Don't be afraid to show that you are a princess and no one can take your crown.

This song is not just a collection of Insta-quotes, but also a call-out for all of us to live better lives, to remain a positive and uplifting human in this cancel culture world. By no means should we remain silent on important issues or let people get away with bad things, but we can choose to not get mixed up in petty drama that won't matter in a week. Let's agree to be kind to one another.

Summer without Netflix is like winter without snow. This listicle contains some of the hidden gems of Netflix many have never heard of. Some of these shows/movies are often overlooked, but once you click on it, your life will forever be changed (at least for the month you watch it). Enjoy watching these when you get bored of the mainstream shows/movies.

1. "The Fosters"

https://media.giphy.com/media/mXrCbE8PQxamlLRvWP/giphy.gif

The Fosters is an excellent fast paced teen/family drama. The show revolves around a non-traditional family of two moms, a biological son, adopted twins and two foster kids; the characters seem to be on a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Character development and dialogue is on point, and the plot is well thought out. My all-time favorite show!

2. "Bates Motel"

https://media.giphy.com/media/GLpAmxAsC0AW4/giphy.gif

A woman and her son move into a foreclosed motel for a fresh start after her husband was murdered. Once they move into the motel, an unfortunate occurrence changes their lives forever. Can they get away with murder? Even though I started watching this show today, I am absolutely intrigued. From the very first scene, the show has kept me on the edge of my seat.

3. "Friend Request"

https://media.giphy.com/media/LdnljOZPgqyXu/giphy.gif

Laura, a popular and friendly girl in college, gets a friend request from a weird girl she met recently named Marina; Marina has no followers on Facebook, and her posts are odd. Maria becomes obsessed with Laura, leading to a fallout, and Marina commits suicide the same weekend.

Once students return to school, their professor informs them of Marina's death. Later that day, a video of Marina's suicide was uploaded on Laura's Facebook. Watch the movie to find out how Laura starts off with 800 followers on Facebook and ends up with zero, just like Marina.

4. "Quicksand"

https://www.instagram.com/p/ByBPxlsiYLF/

Whenever a friend asks for a Netflix recommendation, I always say "Quicksand" very enthusiastically, but I also warn them that this is a dark series with mature subjects. This series is originally Swedish, but the version on Netflix is dubbed in English. The series starts with Maria being arrested for first-degree murder; the events leading up to the shooting are revealed through suspenseful flashbacks.

It is a quick watch with only six fast paced episodes, and the ending will not disappoint you. Just a heads up that this series has nothing to do with quicksand; it is just a metaphor for how Maria got herself into situations which were hard for her to get out of.

5. "Love, Rosie"

https://media.giphy.com/media/Y28TYYLIaRiTK/giphy.gif

Best friends Rosie and Alex have grown up together, but the challenges they encounter distance them. Will they be able to make it back to each other before it is too late? You will not regret watching this pleasant yet slightly cheesy romantic comedy.

6. "American Vandal"

https://media.giphy.com/media/l4EoZ6JZ5uB4IT5FS/giphy.gif

27 faculty cars are vandalized the day of a staff meeting, and class clown Dylan Maxwell is accused and expelled for the crime. Peter and Sam investigate to fill in the holes of the story. Was Dylan really behind the crime? Was the eye-witness lying?

American Vandal is a mockumentary, more specifically a parody of the true crime show Serial. Even though it is a parody, every watcher wants to find out what really happened the day of the staff meeting.

7. "Criminal Minds"

https://media.giphy.com/media/Sn6CZ79Tz53RS/giphy.gif

A group of highly qualified FBI agents in Quantico investigate crimes all over the United States. From serial killers to homicides, the agents dig deep to get to the bottom of these perplexing cases.

8. "Atypical"

https://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9CiCufdrL0JRlu/giphy.gif

Sam, a high schooler on the autism spectrum, goes on a journey of love and self-discovery. With comedy, drama and romance everyone will find something they love about this show.

9. "Young and Hungry"

https://media.giphy.com/media/AEAiyAbh9LRBJofndV/giphy.gif

Young and Hungry revolves around the on-again-off-again relationship between Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur Josh and his chef Gaby. This hilarous sitcom is drama filled and will not fail to make you laugh.
