Given the way Infinity War ended, with Thanos snapping his fingers and accomplishing the mission he had pursued for years, it seems certain that at least one of our heroes is going to sacrifice themselves in order to save the day. There’s just no other way.
Or is there?
So far, we’ve heard it all. From the Scott Lang time travelling through the Quantum Realm theory, to the one suggesting Doctor Strange will cast a time loop spell on the Time Stone. Not to mention all the Captain Marvel possibilities.
Yet while all those theories could be somewhat true, a new theory suggests that we’ve been looking at it the wrong way this whole time. It goes like this:
What if Thanos did not actually kill anyone when he snapped his fingers at the end of Infinity War? Could they all have been sent to an ‘alternative’ universe?
One Redditor explains this theory further:
‘What if the snap killed none of them. It's possible. We have all been making fun of Thanos saying that death wasn't necessary with the near infinite power of the gauntlet, but what if it simply split the reality in two, taking half of everyone into each version and missing the other half but retaining the same resources? The two parallel realities could be joined by a sort of bridge in the quantum realm.
Since Scott was in the quantum realm at the time of the split he was unaffected by the snap and not bound to either reality, leaving him free to travel from one to the other over this bridge.
Maybe this leaves him free to travel through to the parallel dimensions created by Thanos splitting the time stream. He would be the only way for them to communicate with the other. Maybe he exists in both realities and gains knowledge from both due to some strange form of quantum entanglement.’
As ridiculous as this theory sounds, it might actually make some sense. Just think about it.
Whatever happens on the 26th of April, it’s fair to say that the Avengers have successfully boggled our minds. Again.
