Apparently there was about 30 minutes of Thanos deleted scenes. What do you think was in them?

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.

Thanos cannot double the universe's resources because he does not have that power. As for interpreting his character, I think this review was very poorly executed with very little research.

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.

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.

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.

Thanos waited so long because he was taken of gaurd by the avengers stopping his attack so in case they would ever stop him he some how managed to activate ultron(ultron mysteriously activates in the start of the movie I bet that was thanos)using the mind stone or something to break up the avengers he then knows about what happens through vision using the mind stone as in civil war so he decides it's time to strike so he snaps his fingers and they loss because they weren't together but some people give up but not us

"Instead of killing half of the universe, he'd double the resources" Such a dumb statement to make. Law of conservation of energy still exists.

That and he didnt know where the Soul Stone was until Nebula was caught and he found the memory in her files of Gamora stating she had found the Soul Stone. Without all the stones he couldnt "simply snap his fingers" and eliminate half the population. He would have to use the space stone to jump from world to world waging a campaign/war on each planet which wouldve cost he him more resources and taken longer than he wanted. [And even with all the stones he still lost all his generals/"Children (of Thanos) and his entire army.] So once he knew where the last stone (Soul) was he put his plan into action.

No! Thanos didn't need to wait for the reality gem to surface. Omg, do you even comic, bro? The gems have a will of their own. They seek out each other. If you have one, the chances of you finding the rest are almost guaranteed. Notice how the gems acted when Thanos added them to his gauntlet? They flew into it on their own, as if attracted magnetically. This is because they want to be together. In reality, Thanos didn't need Gamora to tell him where the Soul gem was, but it likely saved him a great deal of time.

Its obvious in the movie that he didn't make a move before bcuz he didn't know where some stones r like d soul stone,he only knows about it when he look into nebulas memory.. And Odin too,he couldn't have threaten the king dwarf to craft d gauntlet with Odin in the throne.so he waited until loki was idioticly ruling Asgard w/out looking after d 9rhealms eating grapes,like Thor said in ragnarok to Loki.. He only acted upon knowing where all stones are so he can act fast and get it.if he done it much early not knowing where the other stones are showing her in tensions then her enemy would most likely hide the remaining stones... Or simply bcuz that's what the avengers writers wants..
