Avengers: Infinity War, aka The superheroes movie of 2018, has landed on Netflix US. Unfortunately, fans were not happy about a mistake they identified in the film’s synopsis.

The synopsis initially read: “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.”

Fans of the franchise felt that this description was inaccurate and complained that Thanos does not display sociopathic behaviour. They argued that Thanos does not display a lack of conscience or the levels of selfishness associated with the term and felt that the synopsis was consequently unjust.

After receiving an influx of complaints and instigating heavy discussion on Twitter, Netflix decided to change the synopsis.

Now, the official description reads:  “Invader. Annihilator. So-called savior. As Thanos moves closer to omnipotence, the fate of the universe rests with the Avengers.”

Part II of Infinity War, Avengers Endgame will be released in April 24. For all readers based in the US, you can re-watch part one on Netflix now.
