Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) motivations are seemingly explained in an intriguing new Avengers: Endgame theory.
Josh Brolin introduced his Thanos in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanos had previously appeared in the post-credits scene following 2012’s The Avengers but Guardians of the Galaxy finally introduced fans to Josh Brolin as the Mad Titan. Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War featured Josh Brolin’s Thanos carrying out an incredibly evil deed, extinguishing half of all life in the universe. It was this event that set up the highly-anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe event film, Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame picks up shortly after the events of Infinity War, twenty-two days to be exact. The surviving heroes will attempt to undo Thanos’ actions but shortly after Infinity War was released, many MCU fans questioned why Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan simply didn’t use his incredible power to create more resources instead of killing random people to help balance the universe.
An interesting new fan theory from username rhowena on Reddit possibly explains why Thanos’ evil deeds make sense for his character. Check out the eye-opening Avengers: Endgame fan theory in the post below.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters later this month, bringing closure to the epic story that began in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. In July, the MCU will continue with another adventure starring Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Black Widow is expected to begin production this summer, though no official release date has been announced yet.

“A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters on April 26, 2019.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
