The ending of Infinity War left a lot of the fans hanging. What happens next? Are the Avengers done? Is Thanos done? Or is his rampage going to take another dastardly turn in the continuation to Avengers: Infinity War movie titled Avengers: Endgame? A lot of questions are just floating around on the internet and we do not have an answer to cover even one of them.
Luckily, one fan theory that claimed something truly bizarre has finally been explained to be true. This theory claimed that Thanos also died when he snapped his fingers to kill half of the universe. And there is proof to support the claim. Presenting – Infinity War – Thanos killed himself in the Thanos Snap and we never even noticed!!
The end of the Infinity War movie could not show us the true gravity of the situation when the snap happened. The heroes are gone and the world is in shambles but how the rest of the live and kicking half taking it!
What about the rest of the universe? Thanos’ scene within the Soul World where he meets the soul of a child like Gamora (who is supposed to be dead) raised a lot of questions and eye brows. And a Reddit user gives off a simple explanation to say that Thanos is also one of the dead after the snap. He killed himself along with the other half of the universe but somehow managed to get out of death’s grip.
Here is the official Reddit theory:
It is now crystal clear that the Mad Titan is no more counted amongst the dead. He is alive and breathing. Joe and Anthony Russo, Co-Directors of Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, have also made it clear when the claimed Josh Brolin’s role in the upcoming Marvel movie. A lot of Behind the Scene images also show Thanos’ new costume in Endgame along with the new weapon for the Mad Titan in Avengers: Endgame.
“These are characters and a story moving forward where Infinity War happened,” Anthony Russo said. “The entire universe experienced the same fate, and has been brought together by this experience.”
“He’s succeeded in the thing he has set out to do,” Joe Russo said. “He’s done. He did it. He’s retired.”
When asked about Carol Danvers, the Russo Brothers had this to say:
“It’s always a concern of ours about overpowering characters, because the reason that people relate to these characters is their humanity, and that they’re flawed,” Joe said to CinemaBlend. “And the reason we love working so much with Captain America was that he was limited, and his heart was his superpower, you know? So we’re all acutely aware of the dangers of having an overly powerful character. [But] we like sensitive storytelling, so… we found a thoughtful way through it.”
“That’s what kind of fires us up, I think, on a storytelling level, to be honest with you,” added Anthony. “Because when you do have powerful characters, you have to work that much harder to find their vulnerabilities and complexities. And Joe was mentioning on a storytelling level… and keep the stakes high!
“Because that’s where those characters are vulnerable. And actually, that makes for great drama, and you run in that direction. As storytellers, that’s been one of the most fun things we’ve had working with these characters is figuring out ways into them where they are vulnerable and they aren’t all powerful.”
Avengers: Endgame is set for release on the 26th of April, 2019. The official film synopsis of the movie has been recently released and it states:
“After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.”
The last Avengers movie to be released under the MCU banner was Avengers: Infinity War. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts 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.
