Arguably, the biggest spoiler we have of Avengers Endgame is the introduction of a “greater threat”, thanks to a leaked toy set packaging image. This quickly escalated the excitement for the movie because apparently the biggest villain of the MCU is yet to be introduced. That would mean that Thanos was just a pawn and an even bigger villain will be pitted against our mighty heroes.
While we can only guess who this greater evil would be, one fan theory claims that it will none other than Thanos himself, but the Thanos from the past, specifivally the one we saw in The Avengers. This fan argues that this past-Thanos wielded a double-bladed sword, which is more or less, has been confirmed to be Thanos’s new weapon in Avengers Endgame.
This theory points out why the common notion about Endgame won’t be put into play. According to this theory, the Avengers wouldn’t risk going back in time to claims and destroy the Infinity Stones because that would result in an entirely different timeline. And God knows what this timeline would be. For all we know, this could result in an entirely different future than the one the Avengers would expect.
Also, the idea of another Snappening is not held in high regards by this theorist who claims that it wil nigh impossible to get the Stones from Thanos, who is literally the most powerful being in the universe.
So, this theory says that the Avengers will indeed time travel back to the events of The Avengers movie, but not to seek the Stones but to defeat Thanos right there and then. How exactly this plan will unfold has been discussed by this theory. Have a look below.
