Avengers: Endgame co-writer Christopher Markus revealed why the heroes were able to defeat Thanos in the opening act during the audio commentary for the movie.
Within the first fifteen minutes of Avengers: Endgame, our heroes were able to locate Thanos on a remote planet and immediately confronted the Mad Titan in hopes of using the Infinity Stones to reverse his decimation. However, Thanos informed the team that he destroyed the Infinity Stones and therefore removed any chance of undoing his horrid actions, prompting Thor to decapitate him.
Many fans were taken aback by both the decision to kill Thanos so early in the film and the fact that the Mad Titan was taken down so easily despite proving himself a formidable adversary. While some pointed to the injuries Thanos sustained after destroying the stones as the reason for his defeat, co-writer Christopher Markus revealed the Avengers were only able to kill Thanos because he allowed it:
“They only accomplish what Thanos lets them accomplish. He has finished his job and lets them kill him.”
What did you think of the decision to kill Thanos so early in the film? Do you think Thanos would have been able to beat the Avengers despite his injuries? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
