The last Marvel Studios movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp, premiered early last July. It's been half a year since fans have gotten a new movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and needless to say, it's given fans ample time to start hatching out of theories on how Avengers: Endgame will reshape the MCU for years to come.
One recent of theory that brings some controversial online claims that Thanos (Josh Brolin) will eventually be addressed and becomes an anti-hero or sort in the MCU.
First posted to / r / MarvelStudios at / u / RealBugginsYT, the theory states that Thanos could follow a path similar to that of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and be prepared before the character's time is done in the MCU. While Loki was the villain in his first two appearances, the character slowly turned into an anti-hero into a flat-out superhero by the time he was killed by the Mad Titan.
Of course, for a redemption arc Infinity War and Endgame for Thanos to be worthwhile, the character would have to appear in several more movies. Loki ended up appearing in all three Thor flicks, The Avengers and Infinity War and if the Mad Titan, who just killed half of all life in the universe , was redirected by the end of Endgame you could bet on uproar with fans and critics alike.
The theorist makes sure to point that Thanos' backstory was retconned to make him and Eternal , The Titan could appear in The Eternals a franchise rumored to be in development at Marvel Studios. In a previous interview, Brolin said he wouldn't mind playing the last two Avengers movies if the studio would have him.
