Los Angeles, October 20 - The "Captain Marvel" sequel "The Marvels" director Nia DaCosta has a different take on the events of Thanos causing half of life in the universe to dust out of existence in Avengers: Infinity War by just a Snap. While the Marvel fans found Thanos responsible for "The Snap", "The Marvels" director explains Captain America may actually be at fault.
Speaking to Inverse (via comicbook
), Nia DaCosta explains how Captin America was at fault when the time came to decide between saving Vision or sacrificing an entire universe to Thanos, the Mad Titan.
"Something I like to say a bit flippantly about Captain America is that the Snap is all his fault because he was trying to do his best, trying to do the right thing", the director told. "There is a world in which he's a villain because, at the end of the day, he should have just sacrificed Vision (to save the universe)".
"He chose one robot's life, albeit a sentient one, over literally the entire universe. There's a sort of anti-hero in that if you want to look at it through that lens. People would say I'm crazy for thinking that way, but there's something connected to the journey of the anti-hero and the hero", she added.
In Avengers: Infinity War, Vision had offered to sacrifice himself and mind stone to keep Thanos away from adding it to his Infinity Gauntlet. However, Steve Rogers aka Captain America denied his proposal by famously saying that the Avengers weren't in the business of trading lives. He then teamed up with Black Panther in Wakanda for one last stand against the invading aliens, only to lose as Thanos did kill Vision to claim the Mind Stone.
