Netflix describes Thanos as an Intergalactic Sociopath in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Although Avengers: Infinity War is not available to all users, we are hopeful that it is just on the precipice of worldwide dissemination as the streaming giant sorts it out. Meanwhile, we got a glimpse of the description they had captioned for the movie.


Could Netflix’s description which reads as “Superheroes amass to stop intergalactic sociopath Thanos from acquiring a full set of Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life in the universe” be a tad bit erroneous?

Let’s find out. From the interviews of Russo Brothers given to Uproxx, one can understand the complexity of the plot as well as the characters. Anthony Russo told Uproxx, “Once he puts his armour down in the movie, he becomes like a holy warrior and this is his resting place for him. He says in the film that he’s just going to sit and watch the sunrise.”

Alluding to Thanos’ catastrophic actions, he said that they don’t spring out of his ego. “”He believes that creatures and beings are suffering because of this. So he believes the road for the right way to peace and balance is through eradicating half of all life. And he believes that will bring balance and new life and peacefulness and joy to people – and he dedicates himself to that mission. His choices are remarkably focused on that. He’s not killing people he doesn’t need to kill. He only kills people in furtherance of that goal,” Anthony Russo to Uproxx

Still, think Thanos is all that bad? Well, we implore you to rethink since more is yet to come in the next movie.
