While the fate of several Marvel creations remains unknown following the shocking climax of Avengers: Infinity War, two characters have just had their living status confirmed. A brand new tie-in book from Brandon T Snider, titled Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest, Volume 2: Aftermath (bit of a mouthful), has revealed that Thanos’ finger-snapping destruction may have wiped out half of the universe, but Dr Erik Selvig lives to fight another day. Alongside Selvig stands his associate Darcy Lewis, played in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kat Dennings.

Director Joe Russo said on the podcast Happy Sad Confused that the much debated scene does indeed take place in the soul world within the soul stone.
