When it come to Avengers: Endgame, one of the fan theories that has been doing the rounds is that the Mad Titan Thanos is not the main villain in the film. The new theory suggests that the actual bad guy in Avengers 4 will ultimately end up helping the Avengers to defeat Thanos.
A Reddit user thinks that Kronos or Chronos, the Marvel comicbook character will be the main villain of Endgame. Kronos, who is imprisoned in the Quantum Realm will be the one to give the Avengers, the wrist device to travel back in time and collect the Infinity Stones. The same wrist devices that have been spotted in the photos from the sets of Endgame as well as the new poster. Kronos will help our heroes travel back in time and defeat Thanos. Once that’s done, the true nature of Kronos would be revealed and his intent behind helping our heroes.
The Reddit user backs up his theory with the fact that Kronos is purple as is the Avengers: Endgame logo. Add to that, Jim Starlin, in one of his earlier interviews had confirmed that his characters will appear in Endgame. Also, Doctor Strange filmed a scene with a CGI character, which could be Kronos. Well, we are less than three months away from finding it out. Avengers: Endgame will hit theatres on April 26.
