This Avengers: Infinity War Reddit Fan Theory Suggests Nick Fury Knows A Whole Lot

The Snappening has come and gone in Avengers: Infinity War, killing off many of the main cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is an event that’s long been foreshadowed in other films for some time now, but even those pieces of foreshadowing didn’t hint at the scale of the decimation the universe would face. And yet, in those post-credits scenes in Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury is quick to activate his page to call Captain Marvel.

Enter user sjvkrgr1 on Reddit. They have a theory about just how much Fury actually knows about Thanos and the snap that ended half a universe.

The user points to Fury’s involvement with Tony Stark. Around the time Stark came out as Iron Man, he was there to guide him along, recruit him for the Avengers. Even in Avengers: Age of Ultron, where Fury was out of commission, here is there to help Tony out, saying to Stark that he’s “just an old man who cares very much about you.”

It’s this line that stands out to the Reddit user. After all, given his track history, he’s not really known for being soft.

Stark then opens up seeing the vision Scarlet Witch gave him of all the Avengers dying, and Fury seems to understand the pain he is going through.

Now here’s where the speculation begins. The user suggests that Fury was either shown or told one of two things: that a man named Iron Man will save the universe or that some big catastrophic event will set events in motion (perhaps even both).

This could explain why Fury was quick to jump on Iron Man when he made his announcement, and why he was also around to help whenever things went south for Tony (save for Iron Man 3, I guess). It can also explain why Fury didn’t call on Captain Marvel sooner. Perhaps he knew that there would be a bigger moment that would stand out as the moment to bring her back.

This may sound farfetched, but in many ways, it’s kind of what happened between Harry Potter and Dumbledore — yes, it’s a weird comparison, but hear me out. Dumbledore was the un-ending guardian of Harry throughout those first six books. Always there to help him out when needed. While that could very well have been mistaken for genuine love, it was actually a strategic move so that Harry could die at the time when his death would be most effective.

Fury has always been a strategic thinker, and a move like that wouldn’t be out of his realm of thinking. But I suppose we’ll have to wait until Captain Marvel hits before we can know for sure what he was thinking as he saw Maria Hill disintegrating.
