Fan Theory: Here’s Why Thanos Did Not Kill Captain America


Even before he had gotten his hands on the Infinity Stones in the movie, Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos had been one of the most powerful beings in the MCU. In the character’s goal to achieve balance in the universe, he had no issues in destroying all his foes.

While there had been many superheroes who had been killed in the movie, Thanos had a whole lot of opportunities to kill superheroes in the villain’s quest for balancing the scales. Instead, he had left characters like Thor, Captain America and Iron Man, alive.

Now, a whole new theory indicates that the Super Soldier may not have been a huge factor in Thanos’ plans itself.

While we do not think that the Mad Titan is the most thoughtful person, this is a convenient reason to leave Cap alive.

Evans has said indicated that he is ready to move on from the MCU many times, including a tweet after he had been done with the filming of Avengers: Endgame.

“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4,” Evans had written.

“It was an emotional day, to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honour. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”

After the fandoms had exploded under the assumption that Chris Evans would be leaving Marvel Studios and may have even spoiled the movie, Avengers: Endgame.

“I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in someway a spoiler,” Evans had said.

“I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day, and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.”

The director, Joe Russo had downplayed Evans’ departure, and teased that there is a greater plan in the future for Captain America:

“I think it was more emotional for him than it was us because he’s not done yet,” Russo had said.

“I won’t explain what that means, but fans will soon understand what I’m talking about.”

Avengers: Endgame will release on April 26th.
