Was Thanos's life also at stake when the snap happened? [duplicate] - Man Carrying Baby Drawing Their Foreheads

When the historical snap happened, half of the population of the universe turned into ashes and faded away in the air.

So my question is, did he know that he'll survive the snap and there was no risk to his life or was there?

How can he be so sure that he'll survive the snap?

Afterall he lives in the same universe.



Best Answer

I don't think so. No.

In a conversation with Dr. Strange on Titan when they first met he said:

Dr. Strange: Who wants to murder trillions.
Thanos: With all six stones, I could simply snap my fingers. They would all cease to exist. I call that mercy.
Dr. Strange: And then what?
Thanos: I'd finally rest and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe.

His last line implies that he will be there when all this happens, so he is spared from the snap.

Additional notes:

  • The way he executed the snap also implies that he should live. I mean he was there surrounded by the avengers. If he allowed himself to be included, he would risk letting the gauntlet with all the infinity stones just lying there for the avengers to use to revert back. I think the biggest task in his plan is ensuring that no one will tamper with it, so he must live to do that (I guess this might be the plot of the next Avengers movie).
  • He is the last person from Titan, so he is spared whether he intended to or not as per his plan of taking only half of the population of each planet.

What happened to Thanos after the snap?

At the end of the film, Thanos is seen with a young Gamora in an orange dreamlike world after he snaps his fingers, \u201ckilling\u201d half of the universe's living beings.

What did Thanos use the second snap for?

In the beginning of Avengers: Endgame, Thanos reveals that he used the second Snap to reduce the Infinity Stones to "atoms" so that no one could use them again - but what if he also included an insurance policy for future problems of "Imbalance," when populations inevitably grew too big again?
