One of the most talked about points of Avengers: Infinity War was its ending. It was a massive, universe-altering turn of events which will give shape to the Avengers 4, and the movie’s end is almost impossible to discuss without letting out any spoilers. The directors Joe and Anthony Russo have taken every possible step to avoid revealing it, including requesting fans to avoid spoiling the movie.
That’s why the How It Should Have Ended team is quite sure that it would have been done better under their direction.
It’s not as if they are entirely off the mark. The episode shows five possible scenarios where the heroes defeat Thanos; each such scenario is in response to the fan criticisms and internet ridicule. Eventually, though, the outcome is shockingly identical if the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had won to how things would be if Thanos had killed them.
Have a look at it below!
In the possible alternative scenarios, Doctor Strange beat Thanos in two out of five, Nebula in one, Wong in one, and Thor in the one that was the most deeply explored.
If you have been following Marvel Comics, you will observe that the scenario of Nebula’s win is quite similar to the ending of the Infinity Gauntlet comic books. Also in one of the Doctor Strange victories culminated in Iron-Man taking the baby Thanos home to be raised by himself and Pepper Potts.
That again reminds us of a reference to Dark Nights: Metal, where Batman was seen carrying around a baby Darkseid as he hoped to use him as a weapon. Thanos is Marvel’s way of creating Darkseid and to see the villains being babies that are carried around by superheroes is quite hilarious.
This ending also leads to a teaser about how they aim to create the How It Should Have Ended for Avengers 4, which will be a role-reversal of the actual ending of Avengers: Infinity War.
You can watch Avengers: Infinity War in theaters now and Ant-Man and The Wasp will release on the coming Friday. Captain Marvel releases on March 8, 2019, Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
