It’s now almost confirmed that Avengers 4 will see the Avengers use Time Travel to set things straight like they were before Thanos came. But how the mad titan fit into all of that?
Avengers 4 will follow directly after Infinity War which means that the film will explore the impact of the snap on the world and the superheroes. We will see a lot of pain especially from Hawkeye; set photos have teased that he’ll adopt the identity of Ronin, one he took in the comics after the deaths of his family. But after doing all this how the mad titan could really fit into Avengers 4 and this time travel?
There are three ways to fit Thanos into the theory and we will talk them about in a bit. We all know time travel or anything else, anything in Avengers 4 will be done to reverse the things done by Thanos. So, if Avengers were travelling in time Thanos would know and he would try to stop them from undoing the snap.
First, the titan could use time stone to fight the Avengers. Thanos knows that the Avengers are up to something and uses time stone to travel in past. The Avengers would probably split up to cover more time periods. If this is true, Thanos could encounter one of these teams and will kill them for sure and this would seem a theory where Avengers lose again and this time for good.
Second, The Avengers could target a past version of the titan. Avengers could target Thanos when he didn’t have the stones and kill him so that the snap doesn’t exist in the first place.
Third, The Avengers fight them in present. The Avengers could set up some kind of operations base and then some of the Avengers travel in the past while the others could stand guard against the titan and keeping him occupied in the present.
While these are the ways the mad titan could fit into the time travel theory but the fact remains that Avengers 4 is basically Thanos’ story only.
