Chris Evans as Captain America in Avengers: Infinity War

‘The Marvels’ Director Blames Captain America for “The Snap.” Despite plenty of trolling against Chris Pratt for the actions of Star-Lord once he realizes Thanos killed Gamora one Marvel Studios director believes it ultimately came down to the decision of another Chris! Director Nia DaCosta (The Marvels) takes a broader approach at the idea of why Thanos was able to complete “The Snap” in Avengers: Infinity War.

“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. There is a world in which he’s a villain because, at the end of the day, he should have just sacrificed Vision. 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.”

There is no denying if Vision and Wanda had come to the conclusion to destroy the stone sooner and Captain America wasn’t insistent on taking the chance to try and separate Vision from the Infinity Stone (with the support of several other team members) that Thanos would have been too late to retrieve the final stone. Now granted, even this theory is a bit off given the abilities of the Time Stone allowing Thanos to inevitably do whatever he wanted once he arrived in Wakanda, yet this observation has reopened the discussion online for “who is to blame” regarding the fate of half of existence in the MCU during “The Blip”.

Some popular theories online primarily focus on Doctor Strange giving away the time stone to save the Heroes on Titan, Peter Quill’s emotional outburst that broke Mantis’ concentration and hold on Thanos’ mind, and now the decision by Captain America to try and save Vision over the fate of the worlds. Part of it really comes down to, do we believe Doctor Strange’s observation that this was truly the only way to truly defeat Thanos.

Which theory do you think holds the key turning point that leads to “The Snap”? Or do you strongly believe all of these factors play a part? Was Thanos really inevitable as he stated? We would love to hear your thoughts and theories in the comments. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for updates and all things Marvel!
