After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Nia DaCosta, who will direct The Marvels, believes that Captain America is to blame for Thanos snapping his fingers. Captain Marvel 2 will see Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers return to the big screen after the critical and commercial success of the first picture. Monica Rambeau, as an adult, is played by Teyonah Parris, and Ms. Marvel is played by Iman Vellani.
The new MCU character Nia DaCosta already has strong feelings about recent events in the series. Included in this is the snap that shakes the universe in Infinity War. The Avengers are getting up for battle against Thanos in Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2018 movie.
It was a huge success, and it served as a prequel to the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film Avengers: Endgame. When the six Infinity Stones are in Thanos’ possession, he will be able to wipe out half of all life in the galaxy in a flash, thus the heroes must work together to prevent this. Unfortunately, after putting up a valiant fight, the Avengers are defeated by Thanos, who then proceeds to wipe out the whole universe.
After analyzing the events of the Infinity War, Nia DaCosta arrives at the conclusion that everything went wrong because Captain America wouldn’t sacrifice Vision at the beginning of the movie. When asked about Steve Rogers’ argument, she says in an interview with Inverse that the millions of deaths in the universe would have been worth it if he had kept the android. Here’s what she said;
“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 have been numerous analyses of the events in Avengers: Infinity War since its debut. In the minds of many fans, Thanos’ victory was largely due to Star-Lord’s inability to control his emotions during Titan and Thor’s choice to gloat. The argument that Captain America should be held responsible for his decision to sacrifice Vision is a new one.
However, it does have some substance. The Mad Titan would not have been able to collect all six Infinity Stones if Steve had let the synthezoid surrender, as pointed out by DaCosta in his analysis. Since Vision died in Infinity War, it would have been preferable if their sacrifice didn’t go in vain because Thanos had the Time Stone. Of course, Wanda Maximoff was also against the plan.
In light of what was at risk, Captain America’s reasoning was faulty, but it still aligns with his beliefs. Ultron refused to leave the floating Sokovia. He did so until every human being on it had been saved in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Although running away made matters worse for everyone, Cap refused to give up Bucky in Captain America: Civil War. You may have wonderful intentions, but saving everyone is not possible. Heroes should be able to make difficult decisions for the greater good when the stakes are so high, as they were in Avengers: Infinity War
