The Avengers took on the tyrant of the dark quadrant in an era-defining death battle on the land of Wakanda. The Mad-Titan armed with the power of all six infinity stones at the tips of his fingers decimating the heroes one after the other without any care or remorse. He presumed himself to be a noble entity fighting for the life and survival of the entirety of creation when in reality he was perceived as a monster hell-bent on destruction stemming from his own whims and fancies.
The Titan is arguably crazy. He argues that the decimation of half of all life in creation is a necessity and the only way we get to live this life without fear off dying with the lack of resources (I bet the bulk of r/Thanosdidnothingwrong subbredit has a plethora of points to present here) but it is just a tyrant imposing his image on the universe. What must be understood is that nature is not your image but raw being that should not be allowed within any way or form.
Of course, we are all also part of nature and we as it’s part interact with its other elements and create situations that dictate the natural order. Without going too much into the technical side of things, too much intervention has always been reverted by the natural the order with chaos. The natural disasters would be a good example.
If we try to be wise then nature hits back with all he might. But that was the battle that the Avengers fought. What about the secret invasion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The unbeknownst hostile takeover of Earth by a warrior shapeshifting race known only as the Skrulls. But Skrulls were not a concept in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Infinity War, you say?
Well, that argument is deeply flawed for two reasons. Firstly, the Captain Marvel trailer has already revealed that the presumed Skrulls race has already tried to invade Earth in the early nineties where it seems Captain Marvel and the tree fended them off.
The second piece of evidence to counteract the ‘no Skrulls in Infinity War’ argument is this concept art from the pre-production phase of the movie as reproduced below for your scrutiny. In this image you very clearly see Corvus Glaive cutting a villain in half. What is definitely interesting is that the enemy being destroyed here is someone recognizable. Yes, sir, it is a Skrull. Well, this is just groundbreaking. Not because the studio was planning to introduce Skrulls in Infinity War but because Marvel was pegging them against Thanos and the Black Order.
My point being that if Skrulls were a part of Infinity War they could have been on the side of Thanos and his plague army but they are fighting against him. Why would that be? In what circumstance would two villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe choose to go against one another? Well, I have some theories on that. So why don’t you grab the popcorn, fasten your seatbelts and read the next few lines very very carefully.
Let’s start with the obvious; it seems highly likely that this Skrull is one who was impersonating someone on Earth hinting at a very late stage in the secret invasion of earth. Obviously, Marvel would not like to blow the hatch on this secret invasion plot, if there even is one. But they seemed to have decided against it.
The second prevailing theory would be that Thanos and the Black Order went on a rampage against the Skrulls prior to starting the collection of infinity stone. It could be a possibility that Thanos also corrected the Skrull empire like all the other planets he visited. The idea being that Black Order and Thanos destroyed 50% of their population just on a whim.
Do you think any of these theories hold any merit or do you think they are complete hogwash whatever the case might be you have to agree that the art is pretty sick? Make sure to tell us what you think in the comments below. Avengers: Endgame comes out on April 26, 2019. Up until then keep watching this space for everything Marvel.
