The Marvel community doesn’t joke around when it comes to their favorite characters and heroes! That’s why fans are really taking this new fan theory to the next level. Perhaps they’re thinking too hard, or maybe they’re in for a huge surprise.
Spoiler alert if you have not seen the end of Avengers: Infinity War
After the shocking ending of Avengers: Infinity War, many Marvel fans are impatiently waiting to see how the fourth movie will bring back their favorite characters such as Black Panther, Spider-Man and most of the Guardians of the Galaxy. This is because we already know that Spider-Man and the Guardians are returning with their next installments Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3. One can never be too sure, but there’s a new fan theory from Reddit that states that one hero was already brought back to life: Captain America.
The Reddit user who goes by the name of Commander Wong posted a theory this week stating that Captain America was killed by Thanos during the battle of Wakanda.

The user says Thanos ended his short battle with Captain America with a punch to the back of the head. They add that several fans wondered how Cap recovered in mere seconds from a punch that even took out the Hulk. The most logical explanation is that he didn’t. Thanos had used the Time Stone to bring Vision back and mentions how even his own surroundings went back in time. “Natasha was no longer trapped under the pillars of stone,” Commander Wong stated. “Bruce was no longer fused to rock, and Cap showed no signs of injuries that should’ve easily killed him.”
Many fans feel that this theory is credible because it does give reasons how the remaining Avengers were able to bounce back so quickly after taking Thanos’s beating. Although, according to ComicBook.com, whether Captain America actually died and came back to life or if he was hit and got back up, the result of their defeat is unchanged.
Captain America is still alive from Thanos’s snap and so are the original Avengers. ComicBook.com does seem to be right when they say that this theory doesn’t affect Cap or the future of the MCU. Also, the scene possibly shows how Thanos used the power of the Time Stone to bring Vision back to life in order to reverse the explosion of the Time Stone caused by Wanda/The Scarlet Witch.
On the other hand, what if there is a slight chance that the theory is completely true and it was a sign from the Russo Brothers that proves the Avengers can defeat Thanos? I guess we’ll just have to wait until next May when Avengers 4 arrives in theaters.
