This fan principle acquired a whole lot of play this week, and whereas it’s most likely the closest to being a “bad fan theory” by the standard requirements of this column, it’s largely high-quality. Though they certainly weren’t the primary to recommend this concept, a Redditor theorized that Thanos really despatched all of the “dead” characters to a parallel universe in Infinity War.
“What if the snap killed none of them,” they wrote. “Its possible. We have all been making fun of Thanos by saying that death wasn’t necessary with the near infinite power of the gauntlet, What if it simply split the reality in two taking half of everyone into each version missing the other half but retaining the same resources.”
The principle goes on to take a position that Ant-Man, by advantage of getting access to the Quantum Realm, will have the ability to leap forwards and backwards between the 2 universes.
While this principle is feasible (Marvel goes to undo these deaths for positive, so why not do it from the start with an enormous, alternate universe technicality?), it appears unlikely. It would even additional cheapen the ending of Infinity War whereas complicating it a bit (Spider-Man’s dying scene very a lot learn as a dying scene, not a whisking away to a different realm. Dude left ashes on the bottom behind him.) Also, if Endgame goes to be the ultimate hurrah for the unique Avengers, why cut up the main focus of the film into a transparent A and B crew of heroes as they each attempt to save the day and reunite?
Even although this principle has issues, it’s not fatally flawed from the beginning. Don’t wager on this occurring, however don’t really feel unhealthy for entertaining the chance, nonetheless briefly.
Anyway, that’s it for this week’s bizarre installment of The Week’s Worst Fan Theories, Except They Weren’t Actually That Bad This Week. Things will most likely be again to regular subsequent week.
