    When it comes to bad guys in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos is obviously the first one who leaps to mind at the moment. It’s hard to get past the events of Avengers: Infinity War, but let’s think back to how our heroes got into this predicament in the first place. Captain America: Civil War was a game-changing movie that fractured one of the greatest group of heroes in the universe and what villain was at the core of it all? That’s right, Helmut Zemo. He may not have grabbed any Infinity Stones, but he was one of the few MCU villains who didn’t fail in their mission. How would Infinity War and ultimately Avengers: Endgame be different if not for Zemo? Let’s find out!

    It's like to blame the east roman empire for getting invaded by arabs that leads to europeans looking for new trading routes to india finding america and later the natives get killed by brits, french and us. So, the east roman empire is guilty for the native-american

    I honestly think Loki isn’t dead.
    He would of turned into his frost giant form if he really was dead.
    he was probably faking it.

    Yeah, he split up the Avengers, but I doubt he had the annihilation of half the universe in mind when he executed his plan.

    civil war is a shit movie that makes 0 sense and has too many plot holes in, literally a person checking the doctor that went to see Bucky with a picture would prevent the entire movie its stupid. (also captain america can't beat iron man).

    Here's a question: Did Zemo win if the Avengers get back together? Sure, Civil War (I'm working on a video about this) he "won" by driving them apart but he said "forever" and clearly this is not the case.

    Scarlett Witch is basically the villain. She signed up for the program herself to give superpowers, gave Tony a nightmare to create ultron who could have easily killed the world through the internet but for some reason decided to drop a city on it. The death of zemos family - he splits up avengers. Thanos wins. Scarlett Witch is literally the villain here. She also wanted to keep vision alive - thanos got the mind stone. 'We don't trade lives' vision isn't 'a life, he's a machine. It was also Scarlett Witch who threw crossbones into the building when he tried to kill captain America 'we don't trade lives' apparently. Could have had a rant about the stones but that's been and gone now... Scarlett Witch, whether she means to be or not could be the villain here.
    1. Destroy mind stone
    2. Don't give thanos tesseract
    3. Destroy time stone
    4. Don't tell thanos where soul stone is
    He's only got 2
    All that was needed was cooperation and trading life's, linking back to Scarlett Witch.
    Good rant but obviously we're 99.9% sure she's not the villain.

    I felt that way about Zemo after seeing 'Civil War'. This assessment was great because Zemo was the precursor to the ultimate defeat of the Avengers though there were some unanticipated good resultant effects from his actions!

    It's ACTUALLY Big Chungus who is the cause because he squeezed lemons into this universe which ate his popcorn. So now he just took te role of thanos on revenge. He loved gamora because she was hot.

    it's Loki's fault? or Thor's or D'arcy's if she didn't tell Jane about the doodads going off during her date, she might not have found the Ether, which was only available to be found during the alignment. by finding it, led to the dark elves awakening and Loki faking his death, allowing him to impersonate Odin and send Odin to NYC old folks home. because he then died, Hela was released, and Thor had to committ Ragnarok, leaving Nidavlalier unguarded, or maybe because he was stuck on battleworld. which allowed Thanos to have the dwarves make him a gauntlet, but wait, now as I am typing this, Thanos had a gauntlet ready at the end of Age of Ultron, he said, fine, I''ll do it myself. that made me think he was remote controlling Ultron with the mind stone. and if had a gauntlet already, that means he didn't have to wait for nidavlldair to be unguarded, unless he went there earlier than age of ultron?

    Wait, Tchaka still wouldn't have been part of infinity war. Black panther is the mantle of both King and warrior, Tchala in civil war made it clear that when his father died he obtained the king half of the title. That would imply Tchala was already the black panther (warrior) hence Tchaka wouldn't have fought in the battle of Wakanda.

    By this same logic it’s really Tony’s fault. If he hadn’t created Ultron, Sokovia would have never been attacked and Zemo’s family wouldn’t have been killed in the crossfire. Then Spider-Man, Ant-Man and Black Panther would have been j chillin

    Maybe its slightly off topic but if the Marvel cinematic universe gets Thanos when will the DC movies get DARKSEID or MONGUL? Steppenwolf seems like a "low tier" "boss" to borrow a video game term, Mongul is "mid tier" and DARKSEID is TOP TIER.

    Given that Thanos might have gotten the gauntlet ripped right off his hand had Quill not lost focus, a complete and mentally healthy Avengers team with everyone on the same page would have had a good chance of defeating the Titan.

    Do think since CaptainMarvel is now in the MCU, do you think Blue marvel the strongest super hero in the MCU will be introduced in the future.They should he Beat all of the avengers then kicked Sentry’s ass but then tied with him only because the avengers weakened him before the fight.He is stronger than Galactus and Thanos.He beat World Breaker Hulk.The only person I could think of that can beat him is The one above all.The only reason he beat up the Avengers is because they thought he was to strong even though he did nothing wrong he is an underrated black super hero,well superhero period!!!But he might only appear in the X-men because he’s to strong for the MCU but if they do put him in I don’t think he will have a solo movie.He is basically The Superman of the MCU but black.😂

    Add Hawkeye but probably remove Spider-Man and Antman. Yeah, I think you proved the opposite of your video title with that point. Unless the Avengers will all eating shawarma together, the NYC fight goes the same (or worse, if no Spidey in the nanotech suit). If Spidey isn't at full power, they lose Dr. Strange & probably Iron Man to Ebony Maw, and Thanos arrives for the Vision far earlier, with more allies.
