Almost three years after its release, Avengers Infinity War continues to grind our brains. The proof with these inconsistent details spotted in the film of the Russo brothers.
Released in 2018, Avengers: Infinity War knew how to mark the spirits by the originality of its script, the epic character of its scenes as well as a memorable final outcome. An amazing crossover that today makes the Russo Brothers’ feature film surely one of the best in the MCU. However, this observation did not prevent us from asking ourselves many questions when the release ofInfinity war and continue to spot several inconsistencies in the film. Whether it is Loki’s sacrifice, the survival of Doctor Strange in space or even Peter Quill’s punch in the face of Thanos, it is clear that some details do not make sense. Back to these slight inconsistencies!
THE SACRIFICE OF LOKI
If MCU fans will be able to find Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the eponymous Disney + series in 2021, the trailer having been unveiled, in 2018, however, everyone thought it was over for the God of Malice after his death from Thanos. A stratagem that ultimately did not work and that few spectators understood, the tricks of Thor’s brother being moreover become particularly predictable during the adaptations. Here and after promising his eternal loyalty to Thanos, Loki decides to attack him knowing that the Mad Titan is much more powerful than him. An unsuccessful attempt that ultimately cost him his life, especially since the God of Mischief could have been a vital asset to the Avengers.
After Gamora makes Peter Quill promise to kill her in case Thanos captures her, they realize that Drax is watching them. A hilarious moment when the character of Dave Bautista claimed he was invisible as the whole crew continued to see him distinctly. If this scene was primarily for a humorous purpose, Drax however claimed later that it had been an hour since he was there, without anyone noticing. An astonishing contradiction which prompts us to wonder if the famous Destroyer could not have certain interesting faculties but which represents a certain inconsistency for Infinity war. Perhaps Drax’s powers will be further explored in the third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy !
WHEN MANTIS IS DEAD DRAX
As the Guardians of the Galaxy attempt to prevent Thanos from getting his hands on a new Infinity Stone on Knowhere, the appearance of the Mad Titan angered Drax, so much so that the superhero gave in to his rage and failure to be spotted. In order to prevent it, Mantis decides to put her to sleep. However, the dropping of Drax’s body to the ground caused a thud, drawing the attention of their enemy. This spring seems surprising given the discretion that the Star-Lord team wanted to demonstrate, especially since Mantis being able to control the emotions of the people around her, the latter could probably have used her powers to calm Drax’s aggressiveness.
THE SURVIVAL OF DOCTOR STRANGE IN SPACE
Avengers: Infinity War saw Iron Man, Doctor Strange as well as Spider-Man fly into space. An unprecedented adventure during which Tony Stark and his protégé saved the Sorcerer Supreme, in a way that could recall the saga Alien. Indeed, during their journey aboard Thanos’ ship, the spider man suggests making a hole in the cabin in order to suck up the Crazy Titan’s minions and send them into space. A ploy that ends up winning them, Doctor Strange appearing meanwhile in perfect health. If the survival of the latter may seem strange or even miraculous, it did not seem difficult for Peter to bring the superhero back to the ship, which in turn did not lose any degrees of oxygen. Strange, isn’t it?
WAKANDA DOES NOT HAVE ARMS OUTSIDE ITS SHIELD
The Battle of Wakanda afterAvengers: Infinity War is one of the most epic the MCU has portrayed. For long minutes, the Avengers tried to prevent Thanos’ allies from entering the territory with a shield. However, he was curious to discover that the most technologically advanced country on Earth and possessing an almost impenetrable shield, did not seem to have external weapons capable of defending the population.. This forced the Avengers to open the barrier, as they had no way of preventing the monsters from entering from behind. An ultimately curious strategy, especially since the Earth was not at its first extraterrestrial attack …
THE PUNCH OF PETER QUILL FACING THANOS
Separated into several groups, some of the Avengers got to know the Guardians of the Galaxy during their space journey, with Iron Man, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange landing alongside Star-Lord, Mantis and Drax on Titan facing Thanos. The latter will later confess to Peter Quill that he killed Gamora in order to obtain the Soul Stone. A confession that then prompted Star-Lord to vigorously strike the Mad Titan, his rage ultimately preventing the Avengers from taking the Infinity Gauntlet from him and Thanos from winning over the heroes of the MCU. Fortunately, Star-Lord’s mistake could finally be explained thanks to the first installment of Guardians of the Galaxy. It will already be one less inconsistency!
