Thanks to Thanos, Reddit Is Planning a Huge Purge

Reddit user ElephantErik thinks Marvel's biggest villain is "self-sabotaging" and, in a theory that has been 77% Upvoted, wrote: "Fans of the comics like to point out that Thanos is intentionally self sabotaging because he subconsciously doesn't want to win".

On July 9, the moderators behind r/thanosdidnothingwrong will ban half of its members in honor of Thanos' ultimate goal of destroying half of the world's population to protect survivors from starvation and overcrowding, inspired by (***SPOILER ALERT***) the ending of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War.

With The Avengers 4 only a mere ten months away, a promotion (of sorts) has kicked off on Reddit that includes directors Joe and Anthony Russo and even Thanos himself, Josh Brolin. They especially asked Josh Brolin a.k.a Thanos to film a video of him recreating his Infinity War snap.

Reddit's massively popular subreddit, r/thanosdidnothingwrong, is such a place where these Thanos-inclined philosophers can gather and chew the fat, but inevitably, there came a moment when the registered members decided they should put their money where their mouths are, and now plans are afoot for half the group's members to be mass banned, with a date penciled in for 9th July.

"Here we go, Reddit Users", a shirtless Brolin said smiling before he snaps his fingers.

The accused had then appealed to the court to review their sentences, saying it was "cold-blooded killing in the name of Justice". The Court had reserved its judgement in the matter on May 4 this year after hearing the arguments on behalf of the convicts.


A still from Avengers: Infinity War/Image from Twitter. Of course, you won't turn to dust if you're in the half that's banned from the subreddit, so at least there's that.

Marvel films' Cinematographer, Trent Opaloch, while sharing the list of credits on his website put the name the name for Avengers possible part 4 as "Avengers: End Game". Those who make it through the slaughter like in the film, will remain in the subreddit.

The actual ban will take place within the day, but it is now Thanos-approved.

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
