Ah, Reddit, the birthplace of many a wild fan theory and some of the strangest conversations on the internet.
Every once in a while, however, Reddit can provide accurate, almost prescient speculations.
This new theory posits another way in which the remaining Marvel heroes can resurrect their fallen friends.
Springboarding off other Avengers 4 theories, this one covers the first basic potential facts.
Firstly, Doctor Strange uses his time travel to look into the future for the one outcome which will see them defeat Thanos.
This one path to success leads to Strange sacrificing the Time Stone for Tony Stark aka Iron Man.
However, while we all know Stark is integral, at the end of the movie it isn’t Stark whom Nick Fury calls – it’s Captain Marvel.
But why? Well, THIS theory gives a pretty compelling explanation.
With the gauntlet destroyed, it would be impossible for the Avengers to use it to snap half of life back into existence.
But there is a way to fix it – with Captain Marvel and Tony Stark teaming up.
Where most theories put Captain Marvel and Ant-Man as the Avengers saving team, in this theory Tony Stark’s ingenuity is invaluable.
With his engineering savvy and Captain Marvel’s ability to absorb energy and expelling it as blasts (from her palms!), the two could together rebuild the gauntlet.
So, once again Reddit users deliver a convincing theory for Avengers 4.
As of writing, the Russo brothers Joe and Anthony have yet to confirm anything about the upcoming Avengers movie.
They have, however, tipped their hat to all the theories involving time travel, which is every single one of them.
Fans are also doing their best to predict the title of the still untitled Avengers movie.
Despite the uncertainty of its potential, fans seem to be behind the title “Avengers: End Game” based on a slip by Marvel cinematographer Trent Opaloch.
Opaloch updated his CV, as you do, to include his recent working: the upcoming Avengers movie.
He listed it as “Avengers: End Game.”
Whether this was just the working title at the time, or the future title itself, Opaloch realised the slip up as his CV quickly changed to read “Avengers 4.”
The Russos have confirmed the Avengers 4 cinematic title would be a spoiler for Infinity War, playing on a familiar theme within the movies.
End Game certainly fits these criteria.
Fans will have to wait a while for their theories to be confirmed or debunked.
In the meantime, Reddit will continue to host a plethora of wacky, audacious, and compelling theories.
Avengers 4 is in cinemas April 26, 2019.
