    Apparently there was about 30 minutes of Thanos deleted scenes. What do you think was in them?

      Ryan Hanna he didn’t destroy it he told everybody to destroy half of Titans humanity and he was right titan was destroyed and titan couldve been thriving if they listened to thanos and thanos stop doing this then collecting the stones to wipe the universe but earth is already thriving this is how infinity war happened

    Stop saying he could have just doubled the resources, populations increase EXPONENTIALLY so doubling the resources would not have nearly the impact of halving the population.

    Thanos wanted to keep his whole execution plan as a secret and a surprise ( Remember when heimdal biofrosted Hulk , thanos says this was a mistake). He wanted minimum troubles And now was the best time, as he knows about the location of Soul stone and Odin died , Asgard got destroyed, it was easy to get one more stone from Loki. He did not see Dr. Strange and Vision as a major problem, otherwise he would send not his men to retrieve those two stones from the earth, he would go himself. So this was the best time for him to execute the plan.

    I used to theorize about how odin's death was a catalyst for Thanos's timing, however I think the answer is much simpler. I believe he was waiting to make a final move until he knew where all the stones were. The soul stone was the key. He was unaware of the soul stone's location until Nebula was captured. Once he knew how to get the soul stone's location, the entire plan went into full effect.

    Doubling the resources wouldn’t work because it would have population expansion constant but he could make a ton more like 999999999999999 times the resources

    I like how so many of the video's think Thanos can just double all the resources. What if the Gauntlet still can only apply to the laws of the universe meaning, matter cannot be created or destroyed. Only changed. Just a thought instead of assuming :)

    The answer to the question is simple. Its because Marvel and Disney wanted to make the series long enough to maximize profits from the series and build up suspense while keeping the audience entertained at the same time.

    Thanos waited because he needed to know the location of all the stones before he can start acquiring them as to not draw suspicion and to make it harder for somebody to stop him 2 he gave Loki the Stone as a test so if anybody out in the universe could detect it they would come after Loki on Earth nowhere near wher Thanos is. The main question you must ask is how does Thanos have armies stretching across galaxies wiping out half the population on every planet they come across and nobody knows about it how did Thor not know about it how did Captain Marvel not know about it and do something about it previously since he's massacring half of the universe universe's population Planet by planet

    No if he doubled the universes resources, people would probally blow through them faster, cause they would think, "oh ee have more recources so we can worry about running out later", but when they do worry they proablly would have none, so thanos probably did think about this

    first, he didn't wait long at all. thanos is immortal, already over 2000 years old 10 years is like waiting for a pizza delivery to him. second look what has happened just befoe ha made his first big public move. anceint one, dead. odin, dead, the armies of asgard, dead. thanos is incredible powerful but even the loin can be pulled down bu enough hyena's

    People always point to doubling resources but the biggest problem is how are those resources created. If created on their hose planet, the doubling of mass would throw the planet out of orbit and and ultimate death for all instead outside there Goldilocks zone. If they new resources are on separate planets that could cause lack of access to the undeveloped civilization to access. Again no gain and self destruction. Just throwing a devils advocate out there.

    One of the rules of thermo dynamics: it is impossible to create or destroy energy. So you can't double the resources, but you can turn half of the universe into dust. It's as simple as that.

    I'm personally more under the belief that he just waited for the stones to reveal themselves since he never knew where the Reality, Time and Soul Stone were and also the whole Power Stone being underwater problem. He decided to invade planets in order to have the stones be used against him.

    You were wrong when you said that Endgame was the first time the name Hawkeye was actually used. In another Avengers movie (first Avengers? Age of Ultron? Not sure) Barton's wife calls him Hawkeye in sarcasm when he fails to notice the developing relationship between Banner and Romanov (Black Widow.)
