I dont like the theme of this video. The guy in the video seems like an impatient little kid. He's acting as if Marvel "made up" for something..... when really Marvel has this stuff all planned out.

One thing i realse people didnt realse is that thanos literally created a reality fashion after him, before loke died he told thanos that he would never become a god, each stone has a specific ability that when put together in a vessel grants the user the ability of being a god, who is master of there universe, the thing is the power stone could pop up any where in the marvel universe, DC universe, capcom etc, in most cases u can actually see evidence of it in certain cartoon, like the cartoon power stone, i also want to believe that there is a black stone that no one knows exist, or very few knows about, but i could be wrong.

Without even watching....its obvious. Odin just died, he was protecting the Space Stone. The Ancient One just died. She was protecting the Time Stone. The Avengers broke up. They were protecting the Mind Stone. All these things happened within a year or so. The time was perfect to start collecting.

think its cause he didnt know where the Soul Stone was until Nebula tried sneaking on his ship to kill him, he captured her and found out Gamora knew so he had to find her and lure her out. Thats why he attacked Xander first, he thought the Guardians would come to its rescue, thats why he waited a week before moving on to Asguard.

How about this for theory, that’s how they wrote the films.
Great theories,
@55 seconds the resources of the universe are finite. The infinity stones can only manipulate their own universe and what's in it already. If you doubled the resources you have have to take them from another universe which cant be done with the infinity stones. Killing half of all life (which was not what happened actually) is a better way to keep the resources available longer. He even tells this twice with titan and gamora's planets, one dead and one paradise. Thanos wants to save the universe. The avengers just want to save people.

Well, I'm pretty sure the infinity stones were simply his means to an end. Finding six jewels across the entire universe, most of which hadn't been seen in thousands of years? Not that simple a task, is it? Especially having multiple dimensions and all. I think the infinity stones were more of "a hopeful aspiration" for him, and he was never really sure he could actually find them. Neither had he put all his strong expectations on the stones, nor relied solely on using them someday to fulfill his endgoal. He mostly focussed on achieving his population halving goal, planet by planet. That is what he was ACTUALLY doing. Just because you don't see him doing that on the screen, may not necessarily mean he didn't. But in the end, he knew he could barely accomplish any significant part of his goal, so he had to make sure someone at least TRIED to fetch the infinity stones for him, while he carried on with his genocides. Why the Kree/Nova empire never stopped him was because he avoided planets in their domain up until then. And even though Thanos' army is a formidable force itself, Kree or Xandarian intervention would've surely put an end to his schemes.

I think something the films didn't flesh out well (or never mentioned at all) is the fact the Infinity Stones are drawn to each other. This is well-established in the comics. Thanos is intelligent enough to know giving away a Stone could help lead him to the others. Simple as that. And that's exactly what happened in the films. As soon as one was found, others started cropping up and events began leading them together.

I don't know if this is a theory that's going around but I believe an interesting ending could be that everyone who died isn't actualy dead but was transported to an alternate universe. The original avengers defeat Thanos and 'avenge' their comrades and save the day in that universe. Captain Marvel somehow feminists herself into the alternate universe, continuing the avengers story with the new avengers in their new universe. So for all intents in purposes, everyone who 'died' in infinity wars, stays dead in the original universe. The only issue I see with this is Antman as I feel like he is going to be part of the avengers, maybe he quantum tunnels his ass over to the new universe? lol that's probably not it, just something I thought about. Let's be honest, they're just going to defeat Thanos, take the infinity Gauntlet and unsnap everyone. The only permadeaths I can see happening is any one or all of the original 6 avengers(most likely Steve and Tony) when they fight Thanos and MAYBE Gamorra/Loki/Vision (mostly because they weren't snapped).

Odin's death definitely rocked the entire Universe, at least the 9 realms. With Asgard destroyed and Asgard's people on a defenseless ship, with a former Thanos lackey aka Loki, was a perfect time for Thanos to attack. Everything else seems legit, but do not downplay Odin's death.

Minor correction: thats the way -life- _video games_ work.
That double the resources argument is so stupid, if you double it then the population will grow even more and drain the resources faster and also cause over population so I see why it's easier to just erase half of the population

It’s worth noting that once Thanos gets his hands on the Tesseract at the beginning of Infinity War, he is able to travel anywhere in the universe, instantly. I believe that he’s waited for this opportunity to put his full mission into motion. The Space Stone is imperative to jump-starting his mission. Hence, why everything happens so quickly once he finds it.

Ego wasn't the last celestial. There are a few I believe still around. One of which we know is still around. The Grand Master. Although like some of the many extra plots that mcu has given up on I don't expect the Grand Master to help or even be in anymore future mcu movies.

I hear a lot of people make the same comment over and over about how Thanos could have doubled the resources of the universe, these comments seem very poorly thought out to me. Could Thanos have simply doubled the universe's resources? Let's suppose for a moment that the Infinity Stones have that capability, does the MCU Infinity Gauntlet have the ability to withstand the power it would take? Ultimately turning half of the population of the universe into dust was merely hastening their time, most all things will turn to dust eventually. Yet that significantly damaged the gauntlet. What would doubling the resources have done? Could it have potentially overloaded the gauntlet? Also, doubling resources, that's fairly complex if you actually think about it for a minute. Honestly it's probably *_MORE_* deadly than the Snap. I mean, if you doubled the total number of resources on Earth at this moment you'd cause significant harm to if not outright kill most life on the planet. The effects it would have on gravity and sea levels and weather patterns and whatnot... I mean think about it, what would happen if the Earth suddenly doubled in size?

Obviously he waited so long for the people behind the cameras and production to milk the fans. Otherwise this would of been a very short one or two films, maybe a trilogy and called it a day.

I also think thanos has to do semthing with hydra. I think he created hydra by sending one his helpers to earth (maybe he had a wife or girlfriend, madame hydra) so she/they can find the tesseract for him and inflantrade earth. Hydra was mentioned so often in the mcu. I don't think thats just the end with hydra. When thanos had the mindstone in the cepter, he could se everything through hydra's eyes. Zola's algorithm showed him also dr strange, so he knewed that the timestone is on earth too.

I haven’t watched the video yet, but it’s because Thanos didn’t know where the Soul Stone was. When Nebula went to go kill him she was captured, he looked through her memory files and found out that Gamora knew where it was, and that’s what set everything into motion.

Exactly. Without all the stones he wouldnt be able to "simply snap his fingers" and eliminate half the population. He would have to use the space stone jumping from world to world, waging a new war each time. Even with all the stones he still lost all his generals and his entire army. Without all the stones his mission had a higher likelihood of failure and Thanos is smart enough to realize that.

Why does everyone ask, why didn't Thanos double resources? He's always killed half of a population since before the Infinity stones, so why should he immediately switch to life? He's already known in the Galaxy and I'm assuming nobody will ever like him for the things he's done even if resources were doubled.

he lies about the finite resources and all of that, he might be the only one who knew all alomg that if one planet went overpopulated it will eventually becomes ripe enough to be fed to galactus but he keeps it secret to himself so instead he genocide half population of every planet in the universe to slow down the process because it is the best way (remember, thanos is a super intelligent being)

even with out oden asgard is a force or was a force to contend with. with it's destruction there really weren't any one nation of people able to stand toe to toe with thanos. even when thanos attacks the refugee ship we dont see the entire fight and all the real warriors save for a few were killed by hela. my opinion, the destruction of asgard was the catalyst thanos had been waiting for to step out of the shadows.
