Now that Avengers: Endgame's done and Marvel is gearing up for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel fans have been wondering which Marvel villain would replace Thanos (Josh Brolin) as the franchise's ultimate big bad.

Several names have been suggested, but one of the most popular villains that fans want to see on the big screen is Galactus. Now, a new Avengers: Endgame theory suggests that Thanos snap actually created Galactus.


According to this wild theory from a Marvel fan on Reddit, Thanos may have very well brought Galactus into the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he used the different Infinity Stones when he tried to destroy them in Endgame. This theory suggests that the Mad Titan tried to create an insurance policy to truly maintain balance in the universe when Thanos decided to destroy the Infinity Stones in Endgame. That insurance policy was none other than Galactus.

It's definitely an interesting theory that would help bring Galactus into the MCU, however, it has its flaws – the theory would actually change Galactus' comic book origin. For those who are unfamiliar with the villain, Galactus once started as a mortal man in the universe that existed before the start of the Big Bang. Galactus was radically changed after the Big Bang, and after gestating for years, he soon emerged as a humongous cosmic entity that consumes the energy of other living planets. Galactus is closely tied to other major Marvel characters like the Silver Surfer and of course the Fantastic Four which have yet to be introduced into the MCU.

Marvel's next film, Black Widow, is set for release on May 1, 2020.
