This isn't the first Thanos-related internet concoction to make its way online after the release of "Infinity War", however. After giving Reddit a few days to prepare a bot that would streamline the ban process and with the blessing of Thanos himself Josh Brolin, the ban officially began to take effect today.
"If the snap doesn't happen in 15min the I am legally allowed to report r/thanosdidnothingwrong for messing with my emotions for 24hrs", said one user earlier on the big day. Fans were loving the addition by the director and Brolin, and filled the comments with applause and jokes from the movie. In Avengers: Infinity War the Mad Titan gathered the all-powerful Infinity Stones with a goal to wipe out half of all life in the universe so that a balance can be struck, and remaining life can prosper. Like Loki, Thanos had a likeable quality where many moviegoers actually understood and sympathized with his beliefs.
On July 9, the mods of the subreddit randomly selected half of the subscribers to ban after receiving permission from Reddit admins.
"The sub-wide balance will take place on July 9th PACIFIC STANDARD TIME (The exact time of the ban is a secret)". To mirror the baddie's quest, subreddit and Thanos fan page r/thanosdidnothingwrong is banning half of its subscribers with the snap of its (metaphorical) fingers. Precisely, since the output of the feature film, the artists who have participated in the creation of places have begun to reveal their sketches, and it is, to say the least wonderful. Thanos saw this happen on his home planet of Titan and was cast out after suggesting genocide to ultimately save his world.
The good news is, Thanos did seem proud - or at least, the actor who played him in "Infinity War" did.
The Untitled Avengers 4 film will premiere on May 3, 2019.
