A Thanos-Inspired Subreddit Is Planning the Biggest Ban in Reddit History

Avengers 4

MarvelAvengers 4 Fans are going nuts over the leaked title- but is it accurate

This isn't the first Thanos-related internet concoction to make its way online after the release of "Infinity War", however.

The IRL Thanos, Josh Brolin, added to the terrifying subscriber purge by recreating the famous Thanos snap via the Russo brothers Twitter.

"Here we go, Reddit users", Brolin says in the video while delivering his iconic finger snap with a smile on his face. The video was upvoted over 93,000 times in just a few hours and garnered over 14,000 comments.

Spring Fire grows to almost 107,000 acres, at least 132 homes burned
The County Fire in Napa and Yolo counties increased in size to 88,375 acres Friday and was 37 percent contained, Cal Fire said. The governor has declared states of emergency in Siskiyou, San Diego and Santa Barbara counties this week due to fires.

This is all very silly and obviously has no bearing on the MCU, but it's intriguing to see the Thanos fandom take on a life of its own outside of the movies.

"The sub-wide balance will take place on July 9th PACIFIC STANDARD TIME (The exact time of the ban is a secret)". Reddit engineers even came up with a special "ban enabled bot" that will pick the victims, while users prepare their "In the Soul Stone" subreddit for those who will randomly fall to the Snapture. With the subreddit sitting at around 700 thousand members when the ban began, and the bot estimated to be banning 10 users per second, it could take almost 10 hours for half of the sub to get officially dusted. Precisely, since the output of the feature film, the artists who have participated in the creation of places have begun to reveal their sketches, and it is, to say the least awesome. Jim Starlin, the dude who created Thanos, spoke to Collider during Comic-Con in Las Vegas and revealed about the possibility of an extra 30 minutes of footage that will be packed for the home video version of the film. Infinity War moviegoers watched as superheroes Black Panther, Scarlett Witch, Spider-Man, Star-Lord, Drax, Mantis, Doctor Strange, The Winter Soldier, Falcon, and Groot were all wiped from existence.
