Fan theory claims Thanos spared Captain because of his hero complex

cap vs thanos infinity war

One specific moment that was quite shocking and surprising to the fans in the Infinity War trailer was the moment where Captain America is seen stopping Thanos’ hand. This scene ultimately inspired bizarre speculation to grow that Steve possessed the Soul Stone at that moment. This scene also inspired some memes.

Many fans feared for the fate of Captain America because they thought this might be the last stand of his life. We all knew Thanos was just too strong for him. And then this extreme moment came in the theatre and our hearts skipped a beat when Thanos knocked Steve with a punch. But clearly, that wasn’t enough to kill God’s righteous man.

A fan theory argues that Thanos spared Steve and didn’t want to kill him. This theory points out that Thanos doesn’t kill unless absolutely necessary. Also pointed out is Thanos’ quality to analize and observe other’s admirable actions. “He said he liked Starlord. He knew of and respected Tony.”

This theory then takes us to the Cap vs Thanos moment. This theory posits that “Thanos only looked at Captain for a minute like that because he found something interesting in Captain America; and maybe he was a bit surprised by how strong or determined Steve was. Rather like how an adult person can get surprised while playing with a kitten.”

This makes me remember a theory that suggested Captain America was dead right after Thanos delivered that heavy punch to his face. He was revived when Thanos used the Time Stone to revive Vision. Here's the link to that.

Anyways, Captain America even survived the Decimation and as the Avengers Endgame trailer pointed out, he has a plan. About this plan of his, one fan predicts that Steve is going to recruit a new superhero. Here’s the link to that theory.

The Russos reveal why Thanos couldn't stop Stormbreaker

Infinity War had many breathtaking moments. One of them was when Thor, in his God mode, hurled his Stormbreaker towards Thanos and it turns out that event the Infinity Gauntlet could not stop the God’s weapon. It went on to pierce through the Gauntlet’s power and finally impaled Thanos’ chest. This presented a question to many fans. We couldn’t help but wonder as to why the Gauntlet couldn’t stop the Stormbreaker. The Gauntlet is supposed to be the most powerful object in the universe.

The Russos reveal why Dr. Strange didn't tell anyone of his 'Endgame' Plan

None of the new Avengers played as big an imperative role as Doctor Strange did in this year's blockbuster movie, Infinity War. 

Using the power of the Time Stone, he was able to peep in the future events and find out which one led them to victory. In one of 14 million plus futures he looked at, the Avengers won against the Mad Titan. Doctor Strange informs that there is only a certain way they can win this battle against Thanos. But he does not tell them the way the future events are supposed to happen in order for them to defeat their greatest adversary.

And the climax of the movie saw Doctor Strange turning into dust, right after informing Tony “there was no other way.” So, this gets us the idea that for the Avengers to win, they need to lose first.

Avengers Endgame - The Hand on Tony's Shoulder belongs to this Dead Character and not Nebula

The very first Avengers Endgame trailer featured a brief shot which showed someone’s hand on Tony’s shoulder. This was, of course, believed to be Nebula’s hand since Tony was only Nebula to keep him company until he reaches back on Earth. Then the international trailer was released which offered a wider look at the same scene and it did seem to confirm that the hand indeed belonged to Nebula.

But some Redditor has microscopically examined this very scene and has come up with the conclusion that the hand does not belong to Nebula. It actually belongs to someone who is believed to be dead in the MCU. As per this fan theory, the hand that rests on Tony’s shoulder belongs to the Goddess of Death, Hela!!
As pointed out by this theory, “If you look closely at the hand, it has black fingernails. If you are a true fan, you know Nebula doesn’t have black fingernails, so obviously, it can’t be her.” Upon careful…
