Feel free. But despite having heard before I went in that it was self-contained, the ending itself [BLACKOUT]was a cliffhanger[/BLACKOUT]. If I were to look at this from Thanos' perspective, I could see why people might think it was a standalone film. For him [BLACKOUT]he succeeded in achieving what he set out to do but for the titular Avengers... they've barely begun. Most of those who fought at Wakanda barely had any kind of arc.[/BLACKOUT] I do find Thanos fascinating as an idealist who thinks that he is on the right side of history. In that regard, he's more interesting than Vader or The Joker who may be menacing but in their heart of hearts they know they're baddies.
