According to a new Avengers 4 theory, Erik Selvig can be the unlikely key to defeating Thanos. Introduced in Marvel Cinematic Universe through Thor (2011), Selvig is portrayed by Stellan Skarsgård. An astrophysicist and a mentor of Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, Selfig, were minded by Loki (thanks to Mind Stone) in Thor. We learned why in The Avengers.
The actor signed a five-film deal with Marvel Studios. After Thor and Avengers (2012), he also appeared in Thor: The Dark World (2013) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). He has another movie to do with Marvel. The theory we talk about here is being performed by a user called "mushbert" at Reddit.
Accordingly, Selv's digger on the board in Thor: Dark World had an even greater significance than we thought. Erik Selvig became mad again in Thor: The dark world (Mindstones remaining presence) and was admitted to an asylum.
In the institution he writes wandering words on a blackboard and seems to learn some things for the inmates (one of them is Stan Lee who wants his shoes back). You can see the scene from 2:17 below.
Embedded below is the full picture of the board. Self's scrawls contain several references to things like The Fault – which may be ripping in the universe because of Thanos snap. In Avengers: Infinity War, Mad Titan destroyed half of the life of the universe. Such an event may also have resulted in the creation of a tear in the universe's fabric.
Then it's also & # 39; The Crossroads & # 39 ;. This could be a reference to gateways like Sakaar, a planet we saw in Thor: Ragnarok. If you remember, it was full of worm holes that led to different places and possibly other realities. The computer that explained Sakaar to Thor said, "Surrounded by cosmic gateways, Sakaar lives on the edge of the known and unknown."
616 Universe is a clear reference to the universe where the main continuity of Marvel Comics takes place. It's also Schrödinger's cat, a thought experiment, where a scenario presents a cat that can be alive and dead at the same time. This may refer to Spider-Man, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and others who died & # 39; as a result of Thanos finger snap. They may be in a situation associated with Phantom Zone associated with Kryptonians of DC Comics. They can neither be living nor died inside the real inside of Soul Stone.
As for how Selfig knows all this, the person who has put forward this theory says: "The least gave him a huge amount of information, Loki allowed it when he had him under his control to build the portal unit under the Battle of New York, all that The information was too much for his mind to handle and this drove him angry. Therefore, none of him pays much attention anymore. But it is clear that he will play an important role in defeating Thanos. "
