When Netflix premiered Avengers: Infinity War for streaming on Christmas, the movie’s description read as: “Superheroes amass to stop intergalactic sociopath Thanos from acquiring a full set of Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life in the universe.”
Some fans took issue with this description—specifically the choice to label Thanos an “intergalactic sociopath.”
A sociopath is someone who lacks a conscience, putting his or her own desires over the wellbeing of others. Fans argued that Thanos, misguided as he may be in Infinity War, doesn’t fit this description. Technically, he believes wiping out half of all living beings is a way to help the universe and those living in it.
Evidently, enough people complained about the description for Netflix to take notice. The streaming service officially changed the Infinity War blurb, according to Comicbook.com.
It now reads: “Invader. Annihilator. So-called savior. As Thanos moves ever closer to omnipotence, the fate of the universe rests with the Avengers.”
