The Infinity Gauntlet serves as the MacGuffin for two dozen Marvel Cinematic Universe films spanning more than a decade. From the Tesseract in “Captain America: The First Avenger” to the lethal Soul Stone in “Avengers: Infinity War,” much of the plot revolves around collecting these items and keeping them out of the hands of evil people. Thanos (Josh Brolin) had them all collected by the time he had them all fitted into an iron gauntlet expressly made to let the user utilize the great stones. At the end of “Infinity War,” Thanos completes his hunt for the stones and snaps his fingers, reducing half of the universe’s inhabitants to ashes at the end of “Infinity War.” Before people start disappearing (Ariana Greenblatt), Thanos sees himself conversing with a younger version of Gamora. When she asks how much it cost, he says, “Everything.” However, Thanos was not the only one who used all six Infinity Stones. Both Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as the Hulk, and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), aka Iron Man, issue their own snaps. Do they have the same vision? One Redditor believes he knows what occurred when the Hulk snapped.

After his snap, who does the Hulk see; Black Widow?

While re-watching the film, an anonymous user speculates that Thanos isn’t the only one who has witnessed someone sacrificed to the Soul Stone: “Is this something that happens to everyone who wears the gauntlet? And if that’s the case, who does the user see? I believe Hulk met Black Widow after he snapped, and it was their chat that made him understand her death was final. ” The Redditor makes an excellent argument. Is the dialogue going to be a part of the project? Is this a method for the soul to process what the user has done? Bruce’s witnessing of Natasha, nicknamed “Black Widow” (Scarlett Johansson), would undoubtedly bring their relationship to a close. Viewers witnessed the two of them become close in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” even debating how a romance between them would work. Could the Hulk’s snapping his fingers help him to see her and come to terms with her death? Bruce turned his life as the Hulk into a lonely one. It would have been awful to lose the one person he had allowed in since Betty Ross. Others, including u/willbo2013, agreed: “Now that you mention it, I wish we could’ve had a Hulk/Nat moment in the spirit world [sic] to tie up their connection (I still feel like we never got closure from [‘Age of Ultron’]). Hulk might have said, “I have to bring you back,” and Nat could have said, “It doesn’t work like that for that big person.”

After his snap, who did Iron Man see?

The concept that Tony Stark’s snap should have prompted a dialogue for him is prevalent throughout the forum, with the initial poster saying that Tony may have talked to Morgan (Lexi Rabe). Others, on the other hand, were eager to remind everyone that Morgan was still alive. According to Redditor u/WollyGog, “Natasha and Gamora have both been sacrificed to the [S]oul [S]tone. And if the [soul] stone only allowed you to view loved ones who had died (rather than merely what lives it had taken), Tony would have most likely seen his mother or father. ” Another deleted user, on the other hand, lends some credence to the theory: “I originally interpreted it as what each person lost (Thanos lost Gamora, Hulk lost Nat, Tony is losing a life with his daughter); not them visiting who was in the [S]oul [S]tone, but a mental projection of the ‘cost’ of using the gauntlet.” Tony gives his [soul] for the sake of his daughter, giving everything. More comments give deeper thoughts and concepts, including some that address Tony seeing Yinsen (Shaun Toub), returning viewers to the beginning of “Iron Man” and bringing the entire plot full circle.
