There are quite a few theories out there regarding Avengers: Infinity War, as is the case with pretty much every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, or comic book movie for that matter. The latest one, however, is definitely an interesting one, as it speculates who could be the secret weapon The Avengers need to take down Thanos!
The theory comes courtesy of a user on Reddit, who speculates that it could be Mantis, as the character has spent years practicing to put a celestial to sleep. This is definitely intriguing, and it’ll be interesting to see what actually happens in the film. Obviously, it’s just a fan theory, but crazier Marvel fan theories have actually happened in the past, so who knows?
We already know Thanos will be the biggest and baddest the MCU has ever seen, as Kevin Feige made that abundantly clear earlier this month, saying:
“Within the first five minutes of Infinity War, people will understand why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You know, we’ve been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film. Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming. We’ve been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver.”
And if that wasn’t enough to tell you the type of film it’s going to be, we’ll let the synopsis do the talking:
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.
