The two opposing forces will go against each other in Avengers: Endgame. Iron Man, along with the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will go against Thanos in the film.
Thanos and Iron Man aren’t really very different
However, Iron Man and Thanos aren’t really very different. They’re both futurists trying to prevent horrible things from happening, although their methods might be quite different from each other. While Iron Man is the protector, Thanos is just trying to commit genocide on a universal level.
An all-new Avengers: Endgame fan theory has surfaced trying to square away why they do what they do. It addresses Thanos’ line of being “not the only one to be cursed with knowledge”. It also includes Stark’s own visions and dreams of what’s to come. Have a look:
What does the theory mean?
The theory sounds pretty good, but it doesn’t take into account the fact that all these films are made by separate filmmakers. While they are all likely to collaborate, incorporating all of these events is more of an “a-ha” moment the creators had in cracking the story as compared to some plan laid in the earlier stages of Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
While these types of stories are usually frowned upon in a few stories, as not everyone in the audience is familiar with everything that has happened before. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is different. Avengers: Endgame will culminate everything that’s happened before this film.
Endgame’s fate was decided
Many expectations are riding high with Avengers: Endgame. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are aware of what they’re facing. But they’re harmed (or aided) by the fact that this film was mostly set before Infinity War hit the theatres. Hence, they weren’t able to change a lot based on reactions by fans.
Instead, they made a movie that interested them as storytellers, according to Business Insider.
“When Joe and I got hired to direct [Captain America:] Winter Soldier, that movie was many multiples larger than anything we’d ever done before as filmmakers,” Anthony said. “But the way we work as filmmakers is we have to satisfy ourselves first and foremost. If we’re making a movie that excites us, that’s the best we can do. We can’t predict if people are going to like it, we just know whether we like it. That’s how we’ve made every one of our Marvel movies and it’s how we’re making this one. For all of the anticipation and anxiety about it, nothing serves Joe and I better than staying focused on the story we’re trying to tell and telling it the best way we can.”
