  1. Marvel on Friday dropped the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the fourth flick based on Marvel Comic’s popular superhero team and the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

    The highly anticipated sequel highlights our heroes’ grim state following Thanos’ unthinkable actions at the end of Infinity War. The trailer sets a somber scene from the get-go with Stark recording a video of what could be his final hours adrift in space.

    The rest of the clip features some of the remaining heroes coming to terms with what happened and seemingly hatching a plan to enact revenge on Thanos.

    Avengers: Endgame lands in theaters on April 26, 2019 – one week ahead of schedule.

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    There is no happy ending to the series, short of turning Thanos into an idi0t, which will suck as a plot, but I fear that's what they are going to do, for the f. convenience of it.

    I'm a big fan of what Thanos did. That was a great job! Any continuation is gonna be a dumb and cheap fake.

    Except half the population doesn't really solve anything.

    If half the population doesn't solve anything, then the other half is of no use, and better off.

    In my view, not only not only it leaves more oxygen to breath, but also more room for wisdom, perhaps to figure out how to prevent the uncontrollable birth rate.

    Thanos could have just snapped his fingers and created unlimited resources and food...

    All the power in the universe and his answer to save the universe was to kill half of it. Dude could have just snapped his fingers to spread out the populations on entirely new planets. I guess that would have been too convenient and not the edgy good bad villian he was supposed to be. The ending to Infinity war is only slightly better then the ending to mass effect 3 and that's only because it doesn't have 3 games of disappointment ridding on it.

    Are people still following this?
    You must be noticing that the “special effects” keep getting cheaper and cheaper. They are basically cutting from the start of an action straight to the end – which is no animation at all.
    Likewise, they get the “acting” really cheap. You realize that whenever somebody is in a costume, that’s not the real actor anymore. There’s a reason Henry Cavill quit. They probably paid him less for the whole movie than they gave Amy for thirty seconds.
    Marvel has alienated me (and everybody I talked about this) thoroughly. Not only is the story always the same (more or less), but it’s also quite illogical most times. The jokes went from “funny”, over “a bit silly”, to “plain silly”.
    They are saving on everything here. This is milking at its worst. They won’t be getting any from me, that’s for sure.

    Thanos doesn't seem to realize that "Half the population" can quickly increase to far more than the half he killed off, simply because population growth can be exponential.

    Look at Human population growth.

    Up until the 1800's we didn't have 1 BILLION yet.

    Now: we are approaching 8 BILLION and it's not even 2020.

    Our ENERGY comes from stars (the sun) and eventually they die after they've passed their main sequence. As long as new elements continue to come from space in the form of rocks and minerals the Earth truly has no clearly defined "carrying capacity".

    Thanos did bring Vision back to live to take the stone from him so, bringing people back to life is a thing.

    Thanos didn't really "bring Vision back to LIFE".

    He rewound time so that Vision hadn't been killed yet - and then killed him by stealing his stone.

    Thing is, the Soul stone gives the user control of all souls living and dead so basically, anyone who gets ahold of the infinity stones should be able to rewind time to undo Thanos' snap or use all the stones to undo what Thanos did.

    You make it sound like we disagree which we don't. You explain in detail what I hint at.

    I also agree about what you wrote earlier, with all these ultimate powers he could solve the struggle against nature, unlimited ressources for everyone. Its a clever plot piece thou since it gets people thinking.

    Reminds me a lot about elephant culling in South Africa.

    I have a feeling that link kills even Thanos

    Remember Dr. Strange, in his movie, having the Infinity Stone for time? I think our answer to how the Avengers will unwind what Thanos did is related.

    He didn't want to just give the universe everything, he wanted to teach them WHY what he did happened in the first place. Overpopulation, pollution, just too much everything killed his world and others and he wanted to fix that. He basically just wanted to teach the remaining half of the universe that they had to be more careful or they would go totally extinct. He saw himself as a savior and only doing what had to be done for the universe to be able to continue to flourish. He is insane but he had the power, will and resolve to do what he saw necessary.

    Seems like a callous, whiny, little whimp who gets power and suddenly wants to "punish" others and build walls. Without the power, no one would have any respect for him at all.

    Thanos went for the stones to speed things up and to remove half the population with as little pain as possible, he has been going world by world and working his plan for YEARS. He isn't whiny, he sure isn't a wimp (he took out the Hulk without using the stones, that was his own innate power) and he has been working on his idea since he saw his world about to be destroyed from overpopulation and pollution. His world ignored him so he left and the planet ended up being destroyed because of what he said.
