Lol no, of course I’m totally not planning on writing up a spoiler-ific list of reasons why Thanos is, in fact, not the bad guy in Avengers: Infinity War. But somebody else did.
Coming at you from ForeverGeek is the intermittently reasonable Devil’s Advocacy none of us ever needed in our lives. They put it to us, the audience, that Thanos may actually be the largest-scale environmentalist ever to live. Life is just so wild and recklessly self-perpetuating, you see – somebody has to do the right thing.
Now, I feel the same way about Thanos as I do about Erik Killmonger from Black Panther: the ends don’t justify the means, which means you can’t be trusted, you douche. And yeah, in the end Than-Than doesn’t really win out – but if you’re feeling generous, then give the argument a go.
Also… how long is long enough until spoilers aren’t spoilers anymore?
