Reddit is About to See its Biggest Ban Ever Thanks to Thanos

If Avengers: Infinity War was due in large part to Thanos, he was also for some scenes of intense fighting in incredible places.

In an entertaining twist to an online phenomenon that saw movie fans reach out directly to Hollywood stars and directors, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin has delivered on some half-a-million Reddit users' greatest wish: delivering the final finger snap that will see half the internet forum's users banned from using the concerned sub-forum, /r/thanosdidnothingwrong. The ThanosDidNothingWrong subreddit (sporting over 630,000 members) served as a hub for people to crack jokes about the mad Titan and discuss how the villain was effectively in the right by indiscriminately wiping out half of all life.

"You seriously want us to ban half of the subreddit?" moderator Dragonphlegm initially shot back.

The extinction-level event is apparently slated for Monday, with Reddit having signed off on the gag, according to Nerdist. Josh Brolin (the actor who plays Thanos with the help of a lot of CGI) posted a video on the subreddit to get users excited.

Even the Russo Brothers themselves joined the subreddit just to see what'll happen tomorrow when The Snap happens. The two posted from their official Twitter account "we have both submitted to the culling...."

"Here we go, Reddit Users", a shirtless Brolin said smiling before he snaps his fingers. They are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible. 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.

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo offered a tease of what is to come by posting a message from Josh Brolin performing the "Thanos snap" with "Reddit, Thanos has a message for you".
