The Thanos we saw in Infinity War was different than what most of us had imagined. This Thanos was not killing people because he wanted to rule the universe or dominate over it. And he didn’t want to impress Death either. This Thanos only opted for this killing to secure a future for the coming generations and for the overall betterment of the entire universe in the long run.
This is why ‘Thanos did nothing wrong’ hashtag started to trend on social media. Now, its no doubt that good things require sacrifices and there certainly was a sacrifice needed for Thanos’ vision to be fulfilled.
A recent fan theory on Reddit that has been discussed heavily is the one which states Thanos will be come out as an antihero and then will eventually pave his way to becoming a hero, parallel to the story arc of Loki.
In the Avengers, Loki was a villain and slowly over the course of four more movies, he finally was a hero when he sacrificed himself in Infinity War. This theory presents that Thanos’ journey would also follow a similar course but this wouldn’t just happen in Avengers Endgame. There have to be some more movies featuring Thanos which will show his transition to becoming a hero.

This theory says that Thanos could have a role in the Eternals movie that is to release in 2020.
One point that should also be taken in concern is the Mind Stone. Marvel recently confirmed a fan theory which pointed out that the Mind Stone was evil. Marvel seconds this theory by stating that Loki’s was Mind Stone’s puppet in the Avengers. Similar to this, one can also argue that Thanos is also under Mind Stone’s impression and all the killing he has done is because the Mind Stone commanded it so.
The full theory is right below.
