Avengers: Infinity War Ending Explained by Deffinition
Avengers Infinity War finally sees release this month. If you’ve been following the MCU for the last ten years then you are no doubt highly anticipating the film’s release. In it, we see Thanos finally make his move and attempt to attain the Infinity Stones so he can annihilate half of the Universe’s population and bring balance to The Galaxy.
Arguably cinemas most ambitious film, the movie sees all characters from the MCU teaming up to take down this threat and it’s a blast from start to finish.
As has become a staple of the MCU there is a post-credit scenes that teases the next film and throughout this video I will be discussing it’s significance in comics and what they could lead to in future.
Obviously this video will contain heavy spoilers and I highly recommend avoiding it until you have seen the film.
With that out the way let’s dive into Avengers: Infinity War Ending Explained!
‘All he would have to do is snap his fingers’
Throughout Avengers Infinity War, Thanos is on a quest to obtain the Infinity Stones. Combined, these magical orbs would make the possessor the most powerful being in the universe and give them access to unlimited power.
Thanos wants the stones in order to balance the Galaxy. Realising that resources are finite, he knows overpopulation will cause life to hit a critical mass and implode upon itself. Something known as the bubble effect. Theoretically, the bubble effect maintains that once things reach a certain level of decadence they are cursed to pop, similar to a bubble due to greed and the necessities of life.
Thanos merely wants to stop this from happening by keeping the population under control. Whilst understandable, the genocide that he plans is ofcourse unforgivable and this is what drives the main conflict of the film.
Upon achieving his goal, Thanos states that he would finally be able to rest and watch the sun go down.
Thanos Obtains The Infinity Stones
In the films final battle, Thanos finally manages to obtain all 6 infinity stones and therefore has complete control over the galaxy. Snapping his fingers, he wipes out half of life across the entire universe. This kills a lot of our heroes such as Spider-Man, Drax, Falcon, Black Panther, Star Lord and many more.
After this task is complete we see that the infinity gauntlet shatters and breaks. This is due to the fact that Thanos has finally achieved his goal so there is no longer a need to keep it in possession.
Thanos then dissipates to another planet where he sits and watches the sun go down. Finally achieving his goal.
What this means for the MCU going forward is uncertain but you can bet that the remaining heroes won’t take it lying down.
Nick Fury’s final call
In the only post credit sequence for the film we see Nick Fury discussing Hawkeye and then watching as the world’s population is ravished by Thanos’ victory. In his last move he sends a distress signal to Captain Marvel and utters ‘motherfu…’ before vanishing.
Carol Danvers initially possessed superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, physical durability, a limited precognitive “seventh sense”, and a perfectly amalgamated human/Kree physiology that rendered her resistant to most toxins and poisons. As Binary, the character could tap the energy of a “white hole”, allowing full control and manipulation of stellar energies, and therefore control over heat, the electromagnetic spectrum and gravity. Light speed travel and the ability to survive in the vacuum of space were also possible.
Although the link to the white hole was eventually severed, Danvers retains her Binary powers on a smaller scale, enabling her to both absorb energy and project it in photonic form. She can still also survive in space. While she lacks a constant source of energy to maintain the abilities at their previous cosmic level, she can temporarily assume her Binary form if empowered with a high enough infusion of energy.
Obviously there is a lot to discuss with Infinity War and I would love to hear your thoughts on the film.
What did you think of the final shot? Which heroes do you think will be resurrected?
