    Hey guys, early warning - this video (and indeed this text) contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame! Be warned...

    In Avengers: Infinity War, Josh Brolin's Thanos finally achieved his goal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after having been teased as far back as 2012, when he appeared in the mid-credits scene of The Avengers.

    He collected all six Infinity Stones, snapped his fingers, and wiped out half of all life in the universe, 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 destroyed the stones.

    Moreover, he died again later in the movie, when the 2014 version of the character showed up in 2023, which ended 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 theory suggests so, so let's get into it!

    It's based on the fact that Thanos smiled at the idea of "courting 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, such as handing Infinity Stones over to villains and letting them collect them on his behalf.

    He also wielded six of them when nobody else had ever even wielded two, executed the snap, and destroyed the Infinity Stones - all of which were actions 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.

    I didnt need a spoiler to know what was ultimately going to happen in Endgame. I still loved the movie although I would be in the black order for 110%. I agree with Thanos. I would go further than just half of humans. Animals I might cut back on hogs or deer but for most part I'm not concerned with Animals. Or insects or bacteria etc. I dont remember ever having a bad day because I was upset about Animals..

    Disgree. I beleive that thanos' idea still remains the same, to "save" the universe. But it wasnt really to wipe half of life. Instead, i believe he knew that stark will snap. In fact, he believed that tony stark and technological advancement would be the biggest threat to the universe, examples being the final part of avengers, ultron his brain, the fact he was ceo of a weapon comapny and hus fat ego. Dr strange knew that too, which is why he never told tony about the future and his sacrifice
