The Hidden Connection Between Thanos’ Vision and Gamora’s Past.
“Avengers: Infinity War” not only marked a significant point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but also contained numerous intricate details that even the most eagle-eyed viewers may have missed.
One such detail relating to the notorious villain Thanos and his adopted daughter Gamora has been recently brought to light by a vigilant Reddit user, revealing an interesting layer of complexity to their dynamic.
In “Infinity War,” Thanos secures the last Infinity Stone from Vision, subsequently performing the infamous snap even after being critically injured by Thor.
In the moments following the snap, he experiences a vision where he encounters a young Gamora standing in front of a gazebo-like structure. As pointed out by the Reddit user, this structure is the very same place where Gamora met Thanos for the first time.
During the horrific event on Zen-Whoberi when Thanos exterminated half of its population, he spared and adopted a young girl – Gamora. This significant turning point in their lives happened at the very spot that appears in his vision.
It’s postulated that this vision is linked to the Soul World, and given the circumstances, it’s no surprise that Thanos saw this particular location. Gamora, despite being a victim of Thanos’ violent conquest, became the only person that the ruthless titan genuinely loved, and ironically, she had to be sacrificed for him to obtain the Soul Stone.
The deleted scene from the sequel, “Avengers: Endgame,” provides further insight into this phenomenon. In this scene, Tony Stark meets his grown-up daughter Morgan after his life-sacrificing snap, suggesting a pattern with the Infinity Stones.
The theory is that the Infinity Stones, through these visions, prompt their users to reflect on the costs of their actions. For Thanos, despite surviving the all-powerful snap, the Stones reminded him of the terrible price he paid – the life of the only person he ever loved. Conversely, Tony Stark’s vision of his grown-up daughter served as a poignant reminder of the future he’d never witness.
This intricate detail from “Avengers: Infinity War” showcases the depth of storytelling embedded within the MCU, continually keeping fans on their toes and prompting them to reassess the narrative’s complexities. This Reddit user’s discovery only reinforces the richness of the universe that keeps us eagerly returning to these cinematic exploits.
