In an entertaining twist to an online phenomenon that saw movie fans reach out directly to Hollywood stars and directors, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin has delivered on some half-a-million Reddit users' greatest wish: delivering the final finger snap that will see half the internet forum's users banned from using the concerned sub-forum, /r/thanosdidnothingwrong.

Now, even Josh Brolin, the actor behind Thanos, has chimed in with his support by snapping his fingers at Reddit.

As of this writing, the subreddit is now at 391,000 subscribers, which would mean 195,500 Reddit users will be instantly banned with the click of a button. On July 5 the subreddit was at 360,000 subscribers.

I can't tell if it's the ominous "Here we go, Reddit users" or Brolin's freakish decision to shoot this shirtless and in bed. either way, I've got chills.

The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit is preparing to randomly ban half of its users on Monday, July 9th and the Russo Brothers have given the trending page the video that they have been asking for. If that's not enough, the post has been gifted with Reddit Gold, which costs $1, 14 times. Let's hope he doesn't take it too hard, who knows what it could mean for the production of Avengers 4.

Sony mistakenly uploads entire movie on YouTube instead of trailer
According to CBR .com, the movie was live on Sony's YouTube channel for around eight hours on July 3 before being removed. The video that was uploaded in place of the trailer was an hour and a half long because it was actually the full movie .

The idea is to randomize the entire process, but extra work will be needed in order to pull off the joke, as they are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible.

There's still plenty of time to subscribe to the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit to see if you make the cut or not.

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Now, it seems Reddit users have found inspiration in his thinking, and are on the cusp of their own purge.

Have mercy on me, Josh Brolin.
