Joe Russo and Josh Brolin troll Thanos fan subreddit

Joe Russo and Josh Brolin troll Thanos fan subreddit

It's claimed "half the subreddit will be banned, to achieve true balance" (though I'm actually not sure if it's legit, lol, or that the Russo's simply took notice and are having fun with Brolin). His motivation? To halve the serious strain overpopulation is exacting on the fictional universe, and bring balance to all things - as things should be. And if you're anxious about being taken out or you end up being one of the folks snapped out of existence by the cruel - but fair - Reddit moderators, head over to r/InTheSoulStone to bond with others over your feelings and start a new world within the soul realm.

People aren't mad about it. The video was posted to the subreddit by Joe Russo, one half of the duo directing the next Avengers movie, which means he could also be banned. That already had over 29,000 subscribers Monday afternoon prior to the "Thanos snap". The forum r/thanosdidnothingwrong has gone viral after news spread that it would be eliminating half of its users, just as Thanos wiped out half the universe at the end of Infinity War. Jim Starlin, the dude who created Thanos, spoke to Collider during Comic-Con in Las Vegas and revealed about the possibility of an extra 30 minutes of footage that will be packed for the home video version of the film.

While the July 9th date for the "Snappening" was set two weeks ago, users didn't know exactly when it would occur. In the very short video clip, Brolin announces "here we go Reddit users", and promptly snaps his fingers before the video cuts off. The fate of these banned members is unknown. Another said, "Petition for u/The-Jedi-Apprentice to lose half his karma if he bamboozled us on the ban". But what did it cost?
