If you’re a movie nerd, you were already thinking it.
Avengers: Infinity Wars, the first part of the two-part finale of the decade-long Avengers franchise now eerily seems to metaphorically mirror real life today. While there’s no pandemic in the movie, there is certainly a threat to humankind. In the movie, the character Thanos is the enemy seeking to eliminate half of the earth’s population. In real life, humankind is being threatened by Covid-19, an invisible airborne pathogen referred to as the coronavirus that is reducing the human population at an alarming rate. As a result, world leaders have ordered most of their jurisdiction under quarantine to reduce the spread of the virus.
How the Plot to Infinity Wars Relates to Covid-19
In the movie, we have heroes who attempt to stop Thanos from executing a Covid-19-like threat. In order for Thanos to succeed, he must collect six Infinity Stones and the superheroes must stop him from achieving this goal. In real life, our heroes are doctors who are doing everything they can to heal victims affected by the coronavirus, scientists who are collecting data and finding ways to combat the virus, and essential workers report for duty, exposing themselves to the enemy and possibly even spreading the virus as asymptomatic carriers. World leaders, who may otherwise be at odds are also heroes, and are assembling to fight the deadly virus. They’re not collecting stones, but they are collecting data to stop the threat.
How Does All of This End, The Avengers Franchise?
If you want to know how this real-life threat ends, you just have to wait it out. If you want to know how the Avengers movies end, then log on to Netflix or the Disney Channel if you have it. Luckily, you don’t have to wait it out like all of Marvel groupies had to over the last ten years. There’s still time to hop on the Marvel train. Try Netflix free for 30 days and then cancel. What else do you have to do? If you think I’m using this crisis to turn you into a Marvel movie fan, you’re absolutely right.
