More than two years after it came out, Avengers: Infinity War recently began to trend on Twitter. It happened due to a viral tweet.
According to Comicbook, one user on Sunday shared his tweet on superhero movies. And he asked fans to delete one option. The four titles included Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight, Logan, and Avengers: Infinity War.

Fans don’t consider “Avengers: Infinity War” as a movie
Although the tweet didn’t make sense, many fans replied with Avengers: Infinity War! That is, they opted to delete it among the other three because they think it’s not even a good movie; instead, it’s just a well-made crossover event. Well, that’s what the people said in their reply to the viral post.
Many of them forgot how much they loved one of the biggest superhero films in history, before Endgame, of course. Yet, they took out points like the expansive cast, brief scenes, and lack of characters’ development.
Here’s what the users said about removing Infinity War:
easily INFINITY WAR. say whatever you will about the others, they’re at least movies. https://t.co/7bqn95x8fR

Infinity War and it's not even close. It's an absolute blast, but let's be honest, it's tonally confused (doesn't know whether to be a drama or a comedy) and 80% of it is just action with no substance.
SM2, TDK and Logan feel like films.
IW feels like a sports event.

Avengers infinity and the reason why i picked this is because there’s too many characters to focus on it’s like everybody gets one shot and move on while the other movies focus on character development.

MCU lovers defending the superhero blockbuster
Meanwhile, die-hard Marvel Cinematic Universe followers quickly came forward in defense of Infinity War. They said that the film is a classic. And that, too, while being a crossover movie! And in the superhero genre, it holds a special place as well.
Some users pointed out the viral tweet itself. They said that it doesn’t make sense at all, simply because people don’t have to participate in such illogical activities since all four films are epic in themselves. And there’s a reason why they all matter so much to the genre in their extraordinary way!
u have ur point. but it doesnt make sense.
my decision: no need to delete any of them…coz all of them are best in their own…..sm random guy asking u delete doesn mean u hv to seriously think about it.
I mean come on…….. stay away from so nonsensical bandwagon effect.

All in all, it can only be called an irrelevant way of bashing superhero titles. In this case, it’s the Infinity War by Marvel Studios. Another thing is that social media always needs something to share within itself. And for that objective, this viral tweet boosted the ultimate motive of the user who initiated it. But it can also be taken positively since the Joe and Anthony Russo directorial trended once again! It was released back in May 2018, amid strong critical acclaim from a lot of well-known critics.
Meanwhile, the viral tweet didn’t make that much impact; it did show they prove one thing. That the amount of self-evaluation lacks in many individuals, otherwise they couldn’t have participated because of its a known fact that The Dark Knight, Logan, Avengers: Infinity War, and Spider-Man 2 are all mindboggling and individual masterpieces.
