tbh. Captain Marvel's role for most of the film was pretty insignificat if you ask me. She did like, 2 things the entire film
I think they should have released Captain Marvel's movie after Endgame - and not have her appear in Endgame entirely, maybe hint at her during a post-credits scene.

You don't know how satisfying it was to see her be sent off into space by Thanos.

I'm still pissed over the entire premise of Thanos's character. The foundation for Endgame depends on Infinity War, but Thanos's role in Infinity War makes no sense whatsoever. Thanos claims his goal to eliminate half of all life was to make a better future for those left alive, perhaps to combat overpopulation. But if Thanos possessed the power to bend the universe to his will -- hell, in Endgame he claims that he's going to destroy and remake the entire universe -- then why the hell would he *need* to kill half of all living beings to combat overpopulation? Couldn't he just figure out a way to make overpopulation not an issue? There were much better solutions to the problem than killing off half of all living beings. At least his justification for wanting the stones in Endgame makes more sense.

He thought that by killing half of all living beings, not only he would be balancing everything out but he would also be sparing other people's lives, as, in his head, he's doing this for the greater good. But when he realized that people would always remember what he did and try to fight back, he decided to make sure no one remembers what he did and start over, and make sure that this new universe wouldn't commit the same mistakes the people in this universe did. He is a sociopath, his ideas only makes sense for him.

If you're smart enough to get control of an entire army and lay out an elaborate plan to capture the Infinity Stones, you should be able to self-reflect and question the merits of your plan at least once. Thanos's plan may have been understandable if he were a bumbling moron, but he obviously was not.

Thanos was a sociopath. He believed what he was doing was genuinely right and he fought for it until the end. You don't need to be a moron to do something dumb, you just need to have enough faith into the dumb stuff.

True, but how do you even get that idea in the first place. How do you come to that belief. Am I seriously expected to believe that when first developing his plan, Thanos considered every option and came to the conclusion that killing half of all living people is the best solution?

like how anti-vaxxers don't vaccinate their kids, you don't need to see all the options neither do you need to have sound logic when making your decisions, to us thanoses or someone like kira from part 4 of jojo's are insane, thanos based his plan to snap half of the universe because of the things that happened on his home world, that's what makes a good villain.
PS: not all of em need to succeed
(plus having us sympathise with them to a degree helps as well, like in hunter x hunter)

He says he wants to end suffering by genociding half of living things. On certain way yes. It makes the universe better place. Imagine if half of humans vanished. Climate change and destroying of nature would instantly greatly slow down and near halt. Nature would get time to repair itself. And maybe seeing how nature comes back to lfe would teach humans to be more caring. Aka 2nd chance. But sametime, Thanos seems to fully ignore the panic, sadness, fear, anarchy, sorrow, additional dead etc. What will follow due the snap. Imagine you were a 10yo kid on a trip with family. All sudden your family just fades away and you are left all alone. Not even mentioning younger people whose caretakers vanish... Its really conflicting morally. Are inviduals more important, if there is common greater good possible to achieve?
