Describing what you are doing in your posts is hardly armchair psychology. Just simple factual obersvation based on the content of your posts.

Also at no point did I say you were mad or engage in dishonest speculations about the working of your mind, as you did with me.

Put simply. This is not a case of me reading too much into your posts but, you simply failing to read what I write at all.

:yawn:

Your factual observation is false. So your first assertion falls flat.

Also I have not failed to read what you wrote; you are obfuscating the discussion.

There are curently some theories about how the infinity gauntlet works. This page lists a few. And other informations on the movie.


I imagine Thanos believes the gauntlet gives him alone power over the stones but I believe the stones are independent, near sentient creations and thus, like the Ring from LOTR, can choose to act against Thanos or serve a more "worthy" owner.

Again, the scene where Thanos reaches out his gauntlet at Rogers and Rogers grabs the glove with all stones and prevents Thanos from moving that hand look at Thanos' face. He is shocked and confused as to why Roger's is able to hold the gauntlet. It is why he resorts to punching him with his other hand instead of blasting him with all stones.

Of course, I could be completely wrong. But it makes sense if the stones are very much capable of sentience and choosing who they serve. Think Age of Ultron and Vision's ability to lift Mjolnir due to the Mind Stone. I think that kind of theme will snake its way into the sequel.

Well if it's the case, it could give an idea why Thanos is in the Soul Stone at the end. Maybe the stone "called" him there.

Will, seriously, you're wrong on this. You seem to be stuck in a hostile mode and unable to adress the actual content of posts that disagree with your conclusion.
I speak from experience and this is just an attempt to help you, since I know you can and most often do better.

It is demonstrably not.

This...

If you weren't projecting, then what were you doing?

It would be consistent with the comic.

Dr Strange stopping time to remove the infinity gauntlet from Thanos was one path doomed to failure, as he probably noted during his travels of 14 million timelines. Thanos finds a way to recover it or becomes more motivated and dangerous. Giving Thanos the time stone brings his fall

That's kind of a cop-out.

Ironclad wrote: Thanos finds a way to recover it or becomes more motivated and dangerous.

That excuse can be given for any questionable action.

Ironclad wrote:Giving Thanos the time stone brings his fall

There's nothing in the film that supports that notion though.

Strange should've removed Thanos's head. Game over.

That's what I was thinking pretty early in the film. The rest was just me going "Oh, ffs."

When Mantis had him under. People are talking about Strange should've used his portal to remove his hand like that other fellow. I say he should've removed his head.

I still have a hard time believing he didn't try that in one of the 14 millions scenarios.

Using one of his portals, similar to the proposed idea of cutting of one of his hands.
Whenever the oppurtunity presented itself.
