    Ah yes...subverting expectations. Because it worked so well for the Star Wars franchise. Killing Thanos in the beginning, took away any real over-arching threat from the film IMO. Without Thanos, the film has no antagonist. There's no real conflict. So the Russos just filled up the movie with lots of jokes.

    A better approach to subverting our expectations would've been if they had setup this big fight with Thanos, making us think they're going to win since Captain Marvel was there. She could've been overconfident only to have them lose because he still possesses the Infinity Stones. It would've been a great way to setup a weakness for Captain Marvel and also a character arc of using teamwork. Thanos, almost beaten could've escaped using the Space Stone. Now that he knows the Avengers are looking for him, he gathers an army to battle them.

    A Thanos with all the Infinity Stones doesn't need an army to battle the Avengers. As long as he has more time to think than Thor gave him in IW he'll easily obliterate all of them. Maybe he doesn't even need more time the second time around as he's not just past the shock of all the stones' power going through his body.

    What 2014 Thanos should have done once he was wearing the Stark gauntlet was use the stones to incapacitate them like 2018 Thanos did on Titan... Then SNAP!

    The conflict was in the form of a Heist. Its a standard movie plot in which there is no central villain.

    There is no way you could have a battle against Thanos with a full gauntlet and make any kind of logical sense. Even with a few stones he was still not all powerful and there were limits to what he could do. But all 6 stones literally gives you the power of God. He even says he could completely destroy the entire universe and create a new one. How the heck do you fight a guy with that kind of power.
