One of the biggest Marvel movies to be released in the last few years has been Avengers: Endgame, the ultimate conclusion to the Infinity Saga and everything that led up to that point within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the most iconic parts of the film occurs during the third act, when Tony Stark heroically sacrifices himself to defeat Thanos and save the universe. The moment happens after Thanos calls himself inevitable, and attempts snapping his fingers to erase the rest of the universe. But Tony Stark has beat him to the punch and managed to steal the Infinity Stones off his gauntlet, thus sending Thanos away instead.
The scene has been considered one of the best parts of the movie, one which nicely saved the universe from the evil wrath of Thanos and sadly yet honorably concluded Tony Stark’s own character arc throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he sacrificed himself. But one fan has noticed a massive flaw during the Avengers: Endgame scene which turns it into one of the most unintentionally hilarious moments in, perhaps, the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The fan posted the clip on Reddit and explained the flaw which makes Thanos look hilariously stupid in his attempt to be a great villain. As the user explained, moments before he realizes the Infinity Stones are missing, when he’s about to snap his fingers, he actually looks at his thumb. At this moment he should’ve realized that they were missing and Tony Stark must’ve stolen them. But instead he continues on like there’s nothing wrong.
Obviously the moment is incredibly short, so much that most fans wouldn’t have ever noticed such a flaw. But it’s also fair to say it’s one of those blink and you miss it types of issues, where from now on, people will laugh when they see Thanos clearly look at his gauntlet and then attempt using it as if the Infinity Stones were still there.
Nevertheless, it’s safe to say that Avengers: Endgame is still a solid conclusion to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Saga and the storylines therein. Despite the flaw in the third act or anywhere else that might plague Avengers: Endgame, it was a massive attempt that was bound to have issues no matter how carefully well made the final project was intended to be.
