Infinity War Theories
#5: Captain Marvel Flies in to Save the Day
After seeing Spidey swing into Captain America: Civil War ahead of his solo debut, fans began to speculate that Brie Larson’s spacefaring Captain Marvel would make a similar appearance in Infinity War. With Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the cosmic characters finally coming together, the timing felt right. Going into the film, it seemed pretty obvious that even the combined might of the Avengers, Guardians, and allies wouldn’t be enough to stop Thanos, and so, a Deus Ex Machina entrance by this extremely powerful character felt like a safe bet. Unfortunately, she never showed. Based on the post-credit scene, it looks like we’ll have to wait for Avengers 4 for this theory to come true.
#4: Thanos Is in Love With Hela
In the comics, Thanos is still a genocidal maniac, but his motivation is a little different - he’s not worried about overpopulation and finite resources within the universe, he plans on wiping out half of all existence all in the name of impressing the woman of his dreams, Death. A physical force and living entity, she cultivated in Thanos an undying affection, and in the comics, he lives to serve her and earn her favor. Of course, in Thor: Ragnarok, we met a goddess of Death, and so naturally, fans started connecting the dots, leading many to assert that Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death, would be Thanos’ infamous mistress.
