If you're over the age of 12 and have anything even remotely resembling narrative awareness, it should have been blatantly obvious right from the very moment it happened that it was going to be undone eventually. Even the fact that Avengers 4 was going to be a thing makes that abundantly clear, because there's no way the MCU was ever going to continue in any fashion whatsoever with that ending being unchanged.

The only REAL question is whether people who died prior to the snap will also come back, a la Loki or Gamora, but let's be honest, we all know they're almost certainly coming back as well.

I was able to be in the moment with the snap deaths even while knowing the future Marvel films in production will most certainly undo a lot of them.

I looked at it like this: you know they're coming back, I know they're coming back....but the characters sure as hell don't.

That's not really true, though. What makes him a villain is the methods by which he attempts to achieve his goals. The logic of his plan being flawed or not has no real bearing on that.

Though some people would argue that he isn't even a villain, per se, merely an antagonist, which are two different things.

Well, if his plan was to end all life in the universe (which it was), his method would pretty much always be considered evil.

I would even argue that his method was probably the most human way to go about it.

Even if it was expected that Thanos will win, still bugs me to see Star-Lord ruin their plan like that and shouldn't the Black Order have been much stronger than that?

On another note, I wonder if among all the possibilities that Strange saw of them still losing, if one involved him reversing time to and changing their approach with Thanos.

I think the gloves protected him from it. Or maybe he said half of life, except him...

In the comics he's literally an omniscient god when he has all six Infinity Gems. When he snaps and makes half the universe go away, he's essentially actively choosing every single person who stays and every single person who goes on some conscious level.

The movie implies he's not that powerful, and the Gauntlet itself is more of a tool of infinite power rather than something that makes the wearer themselves a god. So he probably deliberately specifies half the universe that isn't him, but it's mostly random choice. Though it's possible that he could be just as much in control of who stays and who goes as he was in the comics, and in that split-second moment he's essentially aware of everyone and everything in the entire universe and can pick and choose in an instant.

Either way, the likelihood that he would have been one of the ones who vanish is pretty much zero.

I think in a way it would've been better if he acknowledged he could die because of it too, but to achieve his ultimate goal he did it anyway as the ends were more important than the means to him.

To me, this is the dumbest complaint I've seen with Infinity War. Multiple characters throughout the movie are putting one person's life over half the life in the universe. His is just the easiest to see the consequences.

Wait, do people really think the entirety of the MCU was supposed to end with Thanos' snap? For me, it doesn't take away from what happens at all, it just makes me wonder what they're going to do to bring the people who faded back.

Fair point. When I think of it, Strange coulda let Stark die and possibly keep the Time Stone hidden. One life compared to trillions. Gamora chose Nebura as well over half the universe, etc. etc. Star-Lord mishap was the easiest to notice I'd admit and only seemed the worse since they, at the time, seemed so close to winning. On another note, if Thor didn't miss his head or didn't felt the need to gloat, that was another opportunity to win.

Almost certainly not.

By that point, Strange had already done his "I've scanned 14 million different possible scenarios and we lose in all of them but one" thing. The implication is that Stark basically HAS to be alive in order for them to win - Strange isn't making an emotionally-motivated choice to save a life at the cost of potentially losing, he's setting "the endgame" (his words) into motion, by making the only decision that can possibly lead to success.

People generalize the snap as half the universe, but Thanos' actual idea is half of every population. Assuming that's how it worked, Thanos had no chance of fading because his race is already extinct.

Except, that's exactly what Thanos did. "Perfect Balance, as all things should be." He was killing half of each population, not a random chance to total half of the life in the universe. That wouldn't work, you'd have some life that was left alone, and other's that were completely wiped out by random chance. Which is not what he wanted.

To be fair, if he killed 50% of every existing population and he was currently 100% of his own population, it would have to kick into complicated rules lawyering, where either there'd still be a 50-50 chance he'd die, or half of his body would die, or something.

But which again, only really applies if he left himself in the potential pool, or that he had no real control over the process, which doesn't seem to be the case. The entire process was powered by intent, and presumably at least part of his intent was that he'd survive the process to see the successful conclusion of his life's work.

He didn't have to magic genie wish what he wanted with careful wording, he apparently wordlessly wished for exactly what he wanted and then snapped his fingers to symbolically trigger it (realistically, he shouldn't necessarily even have needed to do that specifically, since he already showed previously that he could use the powers of the stones he had as long as his hand was entirely free - the gestures were almost more psychosomatic than mandatory). So even a subconscious wish to survive or exclude himself would give him a 100% chance of survival.

Hell, maybe that's why he's so set on wiping out half the universe. If he'd just get laid he'd lose interest.



And let's be honest, that pretty much IS his motivation in the comic anyway. He just wants to sex up Death herself. And seriously, why wouldn't you?

I'm glad it's gonna keep going on. Because while I loved what happened, I don't want any of the characters to be permanently gone in the way it happened in this movie.

I don't mind if characters die, but I want it to be because they are beaten in a fight or something.
