SPOILER ALERT: This article contains a MAJOR SPOILER for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ so if you don’t want to know what happens, turn back now. Otherwise, proceed with caution.
Sergio Zurita provides the Spanish-dubbed voice of Rocket Racoon in foreign releases of the various Marvel Studios movies, so obviously, he is privy to the same information that his English/American voice, Bradley Cooper, is. Generally speaking, it is assumed that the foreign voice-over actors are held to the same stringent code of silence as the American actors, but sometimes things slip through.
“I can tell you that the movie takes you from laughter to tears. A key character dies. I can not say more, it’s more, I do not know if I already said more… There are irreversible things. Very interesting, very interesting what happens with Thor.”
Whoops. So we assumed that ‘Endgame’ would be all about bringing the “dead” back to life, but in order to do so, it sounds as though a major character pays the ultimate price. The two statements that Zurita made don’t necessarily tie together, meaning that it’s not necessarily Thor that dies. But he might. Maybe he sacrifices himself to bring Loki back? But after the success of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, it’s been heavily rumored that the Thunder God would get another cinematic outing. That’s no guarantee, of course, so who knows? Thor played a slightly larger role in ‘Infinity War’ than a lot of the other heroes. That is obviously leading to something, right?
Then again, if the “key character” winds up being Thanos, would anyone be surprised? It seems fitting at this point.

What about Rocket, the sole survivor of the Guardians of the Galaxy (unless you count Nebula)? Zurita indicated that viewers will be meet a very different Rocket at the start of ‘Endgame’.
“The movie looks intense, good. Rocket is in another state of mind. Rocket is always angry and throwing a bullet and now Rocket is brooding. Moreover, there is a time when Rocket is so sad that he does not care to be told in certain ways that it bothers him that they always tell him.”
I kinda think someone used Google Translate for this. But what I think it means is that Rocket is in mourning and doesn’t want the other characters bugging him about it. He just wants to be left alone… or does he?
We don’t have much longer to wait! ‘Avengers: Endgame’ will assemble audiences on April 26th, 2019.
