I still can’t believe that it happened. Ever time the images pass before my eyes I find myself wondering why. Okay, maybe I understand why it had to happen and I understand how it happened but I still want to know why. But Thanos though!!!
How could they do this to me? Like life isn’t already hard enough having to figure out what those hideous things from are. They just had to go and make my favourite people disappear!!! It is somehow inconsiderate. I know I sound like Sheldon Cooper at this moment but I really want to call Marvel Studios and ask them why they did this. I know that the whole plot has been set and the next year will reveal how things turn out but I can’t wait that long. The suspense is killing me.
If you watched Avengers: Infinity War you know that this is not what the trailer promised us. The trailer promised so much and we got so shocked. Honestly; the movie delivers what the trailer promised. But like all advertising, it showed a portion of the truth without hinting to the downside that was awaiting us in the movie.
So, to begin with, T’Challa withers away. Spiderman too. This leaves me thinking “Wakanda forever never now!!!” I mean, we are still waiting for the next Black Panther and I doubt things will work out without him. As for Spiderman, I think he’s too young to go and we were still expecting so much from him. Nick Fury was beginning to be my hope for rescue then even he disappeared. The Marvel Universe is always running in a fluent line and now I’m just baffled.
Thanos thinks he can save the universe. He calls his actions “mercy”. Like, really! Mercy! Mercy is different in our eyes compared to it in his eyes. The logic behind the work of Thanos is understandable. This conversation shows you how well thought out his plan is:
Gamora : I was a child when you took me.
Thanos : I saved you.
Gamora : No, no, we were happy on my home planet.
Thanos : Going to bed hungry, scrounging for scraps? Your planet was on the brink of collapse. I was the one who stopped that. You know what’s happened since then? The children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. It’s a paradise.
Gamora : Because you murdered half the planet!
Thanos : A small price to pay for salvation.
Thanos sat down at some point and realized that the overpopulation of the universe will lead to nothing but demise. He came up with a reasonable solution really. Although none of us want to admit it, Thanos is doing a good thing. We don’t want to die and we don’t want to lose our loved one but we are killing the universe. Either the universe kills us or we dry it off its resources and leave it uninhabitable until we die out. The plan that Thanos has gives the universe time to recuperate and gives all those that live in it a better chance of survival. It is a great plan with great benefits but the execution is hard. It is costly. It is ruthless and it is terrible to those that remain.
