Warning: Technically this post contains spoilers for Ant-Man in the Wasp, the same way you knew the boat was going to sink in Titanic.Watching Peter Parker tell Tony Stark he was sorry as he vanished into oblivion at the end of Infinity War was enough to totally break us, but what really made the entire shocking sequence so powerful was how it was slowly revealed what was happening in both Wakanda and Titan as Earth’s mightiest heroes were snapped to nothingness. We then got a glimpse of the terrifying way it hit the real world during the post-credits scene when Nick Fury called Captain Marvel in his final moments before turning to ash, and then again during Ant-Man and the Wasp when Scott was left alone in the Quantum Realm.But those events didn’t happen sequentially, they happened simultaneously, as Thanos’s grand plan was achieved. But a new fan video from the YouTube channel dimitreze that synchronizes every disintegration shows watching the Snapture take place all at once is just as devastating as seeing it spread out.
Ooof. The more you see the ending of Infinity War the worse it gets, and adding in what happened to Hank, Hope, and Janet is just another kick in the stomach. Putting these scenes together though also highlights the brilliant way the Russo Brothers used silence to enhance the horrible reality that people were simply disappearing. Even with four scenes playing at once you can make out everything that is said, and the effect is a a chorus of tragedy.Also, now we know Thanos was wrong, because eliminating half of all life with the snap of his finger was not merciful when you have to watch it happen all at once.
What do you think of this synced Snapture? Is it sadder to watch it this way, or is having them spread out more devastating? Tell us in the comments section below.
