When Thanos was able to pull off his incredible finger snap in collaboration with the Infinity Gauntlet and all of the Infinity Stones, the final result was one of the biggest movie moments ever. Witnessing that many on-screen deaths of some of the most beloved heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was hard to do, in fact, there have been many accounts of spontaneous sobbing in the theaters. Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and Groot are just among some of the ones that seemingly met their end on the big screen, and the feeling is still being felt to this day.
The Mad Titan was actually able to pull it off, to the dismay of those around him, and now half of the population of the MCU is now dust. There are many theories floating around that speculate whether or not these characters have actually died, and if, perhaps, the Soul Stone is housing these bodies for the time being. For now, we’ll have to wait and see what comes from Marvel Studios’ next movies to piece together clues of what’s really going on, and if there’s any way to avenge and reverse what’s happened.
Until then it’s okay to imagine that the finger snap backfired on Thanos and he was the only one to get turned into dryer lint…
In good fun, Marvel Studios has revealed a new camera app in conjunction with Facebook that allows true believers to take part in the Avengers: Infinity War fun in a much more personal way. What if Thanos’ snap bled out of the MCU and into our reality? Now you can play with this concept as dramatically as you can while fading into dying dust with just a little bit of selfie acting.
All you have to do is find the effect amongst the others in your camera library on your mobile Facebook app. Once you do, make sure it’s in selfie mode, position yourself properly, recite your final words, and act out your dying moments while recording so your family and friends can get a laugh on Facebook. Opening your mouth triggers the app to obliterate you just as if you were among the unlucky half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Thano’s infamous finger snap.
