The latest trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was recently released by Marvel. In the clip, there are multiple superheroes from the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. SpiderMan, Captain America, and Dr. Strange are featured in the trailer as well.

Black Panther is also prominently featured following the worldwide success of the film, Black Panther. However, one scene has caused an uproar on social media.

Thanos, the supreme villain who destroys at will, is shown walking through Wakanda. There are theories that Thanos is searching for the Time Stone that will add power to his Infinity Gauntlet.

The Time Stone has likely been hidden in Wakanda. And with the Time Stone in Wakanda, it’s possible that Thanos will demolish the country and its citizens.

Some used social media humor to draw a parallel between Thanos’ possible destruction of Wakanda and the colonization of Africa.
