Monday night was the World Premiere of Avengers: Infinity War in California. I was lucky enough to attend along with 24 other amazing bloggers. After the movie, we headed to the after party to mingle with the cast and filmmakers. I ran into Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, who I have talked with on several occasions. We discussed the movie, the feelings it gave me, as well as my predictions for Avengers 4 (stay tuned for a full article about that). He also told me that a certain actor had to leave the theater during a certain scene.

During one of the most emotional scenes in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (played by Josh Brolin) kills Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana). In order to retrieve the soul stone, Thanos learns he must sacrifice the soul of someone he loves. There are not many people in the universe that Thanos loves, perhaps Gamora is the only one. In the scene, Gamora laughs saying the universe denied him what he wanted, because he loves no one. As he turns around, with a tear in his eye, she discovers that tear is for her. It is that moment that she realizes what is about to happen.

I will not lie, I was sobbing pretty hard as I watched Thanos drag Gamora to the edge of the cliff and throw her off. It was very reminiscent of when he took her hand when she was a young girl, as he murdered half of her planet’s inhabitants. Zoe Saldana and her husband left the room after this scene – which I am sure is because it was so hard to watch. I can only imagine how it feels to watch a character you have played for so many years perish. Especially like that. It is a hard enough scene for fans, but for the actress who plays her, it must be near unbearable. Don’t worry, she did return a few moments later to watch the rest of the film.

Was this scene hard for you to watch? Let me know in the comments!


Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet, Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now!

From the desk of JOSHUA STARK

GREETINGS TESSA. (Whoops all caps.) I recently left you a reply on this website if you already got it read no longer.

This comment is concerning an earlier stream, at the time I was under my real name Joshua Bird. On your last stream I was Joshua Stark. A.K.A the Google GOOOOOOOOOD. When I was Joshua I left a comment saying I saw you at the premier. It was a joke I had every intent of taking back, but before I could my phone crashed. Once I got my new phone I immediately went back to see your reply. You were so sweet, and kind, and the only thing you were upset about was that I didn't say hi. I felt so guilty, but also so ashamed so I didn't tell you the truth. I'm sorry if you feel lied to. You are such a kind, caring, sweet, person. And a Wonderful mother. I guess this is the reason 13 yr olds like me can't have jobs. Anyway, I sincerely apologize for any deceit I may have caused. I'm using a fake Gmail btw.

From (what I hope am still) your friend with apologies.

That scene was emotional; especially because I kept flashing back to Gamora's flashback first meeting Thanos I didn't cry like everyone else did when we saw her little finger touch his huge but I cried when he was basically teaching her about balance her people getting killed while he was doing so when she heard the firing and the screams she almost turned around in saw but Thanos turned her head away and told her to focus (that is when I cried a monster that didn't want a little girl to see his villainous acts and also subliminally telling her why he was doing it when she was young, it was heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time), another scene I flash back to was when they had their argument, he didn't sit on his throne because he knew she hated it that was when I realized he didn't just say Gamora because she was a little girl but may be because he wanted something to love and he had gotten it. Which also why immediately started crying when a tear came down on his cheek I knew what he was about to do (sadly his will overpowered his love) I even almost cried when they were about out to get the Gaulent off of his hand when Mantis said he mourns, I also thought it was a great way to have Gamora's arc; when he said "I understand my child" to Wanda I had to cover my mouth because I felt like I was going to loudly yelp than making me flash back to Thanos telling Quill to kill Gamora as he pushed her head closer and Peter pulled the trigger (the crowd laugh thinking it was Peter outsmarting Thanos and breaking Gamora's promise but then fell silent when it turned out it was Thanos using the reality stone) as he then says "I like you" before he and Gamora leave to go to Vomira. Sadly I think Thanos said that because at that very moment Quill did what Thanos did when killing Gamora he ignored his emotions and did the deed by utter will, we saw Peter cry and Thanos cry before doing it; both surprisingly a little hesitant (when I say hesitant I mean Thanos) I had forgotten for a quick second as Wanda was holding them off he was watching and probably seeing her tears and even possibly Vision mouth "I'm sorry, I love you" to her but I immediately remembered when he said those words because he had killed Gamora and Wanda killed Vision (people they both loved, and if you look at it with a more in depth perspective you realized they were in the same scenario for different reasons; and order for Thanos to get the soul stone he had to kill the one he loved which was Gamora in order for Thanos not to kill half the population Wanda had to kill Vision because she was the only one with the power and time was running out it is just Thanos was bad and Wanda killed vision) she was the hero and so was Vision they both knew that the people Thanos was trying to wipe from the Earth had families and life period should be lived to the fullest, but Thanos being Thanos didn't see any other way and therefore thought he was the only one to have the will to do it even if it cost him the one thing he loved the most (or really loved period) so I guess that is why I thought it was an emotional scene and even more emotional than other deaths (sadly in my opinion topping Tom Holland's Spiderman); I would've also went out if I had saw it coming and my will to keep watching until the end credits were shown wasn't so strong in other words it didn't take me by surprise but both Josh and Zoe executed that scene beautifully because I was still heartbroken and utterly speechless that whole scene was profound.

Yes, yes, yes! I totally agree with you on all of this. I pictured those same things and thought those same things. So hard. What a perfect story arch for her. It was hard to watch, but also necessary to move the story forward. When you feel for a villain, that is when you know they are a great villain.

[…] edge of the cliff. Yikes. It was hard. Apparently Zoe Saldana agreed with me because she actually left the theater for a few minutes after watching that scene. She did end up returning though, but I can only imagine watching a character you have become dying […]
