Did the Mad Titan really want to die in Avengers: Endgame?
In Avengers: Infinity War, Josh Brolin’s Thanos finally accomplished his goal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after having been teased as far back as 2012, when he emerged in the mid-credits scene of The Avengers.
He collected all six Infinity Stones, snapped his fingers, and wiped out one half of all life in the cosmos, before retiring to a remote planet to live out his remaining days in peace.
But that peace was soon disturbed, as the Avengers caught up with him in Endgame and killed him upon realizing he’d shattered the stones.
Furthermore, he passed away again later in the motion picture, when the 2014 variation of the character showed up in 2023, which finished with Tony Stark using the Infinity Stones to snap HIM out of existence.
But was that Thanos’ goal all along? Did the Mad Titan WANT to die? This hypothesis recommends so, so let us get into it!
It is based on the fact that Thanos smirked at the notion of “wooing death” from his very first appearance in the mid-credits scene of The Avengers in 2012.
He then went on to take a load of risks in the MCU, for example handing Infinity Stones over to villains and letting them gather them on his behalf.
He in addition wielded six of them when no one else had ever even wielded two, executed the snap, and shattered the Infinity Stones – all of which were deeds that could have killed him.
There’s a lot more to the theory than that, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out more.
