Last year when I left my press screening of Avengers: Infinity War, it was clear that the ending shook a lot of people. In those closing minutes of the film, you could hear a pin drop in the theater. The idea of a world where a large chunk of people has been the subject of fiction for many years, but in this case, we have a situation where exactly half of all life gets snuffed out. In Avengers: Endgame, we start out in a post-snapped world…but how would things really play out in real life?
This is where the YouTube channel Alternate History Hub comes in. Over the course of their 18-minute video, they walk through a likely scenario of how the world would actually react. They discuss the mass panic that would likely ensue, as well as the uncertainty that many people would face. After all, there is no way for them to know whether or not a second snap would be coming their way.
Another interesting note here is that they take into account all life being destroyed, including plants and animals getting halved. There is a mass of people moving into rural areas, and famines could easily occur in many areas around the globe. Of course, what also follows is political turmoil and a whole new objective for the world.
In short, Thanos would ruin things, as his snap will cause a mass extinction of many endangered animals and plants, and would ultimately result in eliminating the very resources people need to survive. Whoops, Thanos. You done f’d up.
