The decimation that we saw at the end of Avengers: Infinity War wasn’t real, according to this theory. Well, it’s real to Thanos, but none of the people we saw turn to dust actually died.

Other upcoming Marvel Studios films include Captain Marvel on March 8th and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th.
