Thanos’ Snap from Avengers: Infinity War is without a doubt the most painful experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe has undergone. It profoundly altered the course of the franchise, wiping off half of the universe and forcing the Avengers to travel back in time in an attempt to resurrect everyone. Despite the fact that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes triumphed in Avengers: Endgame, The Marvels director Nia DaCosta has taken aim at Captain America, blaming him for the Snap in the first place. In the Inverse interview, DaCosta appears to be somewhat joking, but her statements do have some validity. In fact, she goes for the jugular by pointing out that Cap’s drive to preserve one life is what puts all of reality in jeopardy. Something I like to say about Captain America a little sarcastically is that the Snap is all his fault because he was doing his best to do the right thing. In a parallel universe, he is a villain since, at the end of the day, he should have just surrendered Vision. She said He chose the life of a sentient robot above the life of the entire cosmos. If you look at it through that perspective, there’s an anti-hero in there somewhere. ”

To be honest, Steve’s actions are understandable given his military background:

To be fair, Steve’s actions made sense given his military history, as being a soldier required him to hedge bets and analyze probability. Thanos, on the other hand, would not have been able to complete his Infinity Gauntlet in Wakanda if Scarlet Witch had destroyed the Mind Stone in Vision’s mind, and the Snap would not have occurred. It’s a compelling case, and one that even Vision was willing to make since he realized his life wasn’t worth the possible death toll if Thanos succeeded. He wasn’t as self-centered as his colleagues, who adhered to the “no man left behind” policy. Wanda’s reluctance was natural, but Cap, as a leader and strategist, needed to prioritize the interests of the many over the needs of the few. And in this scenario, exchanging one artificial life for incalculable billions of others was the only rational alternative.

Using reasoning rather than emotion should have been a no-brainer, especially when Thanos was clearly on a murderous path:

Using reasoning rather than emotion should have been obvious, especially since Thanos was clearly on a murderous path after Hulk witnessed him slaughtering Asgardians. Instead, Cap took the lead and set an example for everyone to follow. And it cost them almost everything since Thanos would go back in time after Wanda tried to carry out the plot too late, get the stone, and finish his purpose. Only five years later did the remaining Avengers understand they needed to do whatever it took to right the wrongs of the past. As a result, Steve was forced to conduct a time theft, which may have been as perilous, portraying him as a desperate person. After all, he knew he had to atone for his misdeeds, and saving Vision was at the top of the list.
