What’s better than one Thanos snap? How about two snaps up, as one fan has theorized that a second snap may occur in Avengers: Endgame.
Let us turn to everyone’s favorite proving ground for fan theories: Reddit. One fan has postulated the theory that, to get to the point, Thanos may snap his fingers again. Because the original Avengers managed to survive the events of Infinity War, perhaps this snap would be what ultimately does them in when Endgame hits theaters in April. In other words, Thanos snaps again, but a different set of heroes survive when the battle is over.
Here’s the theory in question:
The theory for Avengers: Endgame adds to this argument by going through the losses that many of the original Avengers have faced prior to Infinity War and Endgame, such as Clint losing his family, Tony losing his suits, Cap losing Bucky, and Bruce losing his shot at another solo Hulk film-I mean, Bruce and Hulk reaching the breaking point of their coexistence. Second Thanos snap or not, many are speculating who may ultimately bite the bullet in Endgame.
We know most, if not all, of those wiped out will be resurrected or brought back somehow. That trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home wasn’t just for show, after all. But do you think there’s any grain of truth to this theory for Endgame? Could there not only be a second snap, but permanent losses as a result of it? Could a second snap wipe out the original MCU heroes, giving rise to a new generation? Or is this just another fan theory from Reddit without any actual weight? Let us know your thoughts and theories in the comments below.
Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters on April 26, 2019.
Here’s Every Hero Who Appears In The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.
The First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she's been assessing the consequences of Thanos' actions. Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.
Although Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.
Nebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.
The new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.
After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.
While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
