Is it okay to start openly talking about spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War? I feel like it should be, but for fear of upsetting some fans who are still waiting for that magical weekend to venture into the movie theaters, it’s probably worth giving out one final spoiler alert before diving into the meat of this story.
So, yeah. Spoiler alert!
In Avengers: Infinity War, we saw roughly half of the heroes disappear with a snap of Thanos’ fingers. However, if you’re like me, you noticed that they milked the hell out of one death — Peter Parker’s. While most characters had a chance to look around, confused, and maybe give one line, before disappearing, Peter Parker had chance to make a comment, stumble, whine, cry, whine some more, and basically tug at the heartstrings of viewers in the most obviously emotionally manipulative scene since that one scene in Crash with Michael Peña’s daughter.
But since then, fans have theorized as to why Peter Parker was able to basically give a monologue before Voldemort-ing into dust. Given that he has his Spidey sense, it was perfectly logical that he would “sense” something was off before he began to dissipate like the others, right?
Speaking with HuffPost, co-director Joe Russo confirmed this fan theory, saying, “That’s correct. He was aware of something.”
I call BS and think it was all about milking the emotion, but I can’t deny that it’s a very plausible reasoning behind it all, so I guess I’ll give it a pass (not that it really matters).
What do you think of this theory? Does it hold more weight now that Russo confirmed it? Let us know your opinion down below!
