Avatar director James Cameron, a climate change activist, said he can “relate to” Marvel villain Thanos’ plan to kill billions upon billions of people as well as other creatures in the universe for the sake of population control.
In the Avengers finale, Thanos famously wanted to destroy half of the universe’s population to preserve its finite resources — a possible allegory for climate change extremists. According to Cameron, Thanos had a plan that he can relate to.
“I can relate to Thanos,” Cameron told Time. “I thought he had a pretty viable answer. The problem is nobody is going to put up their hand to volunteer to be the half that has to go.”
Time did not specify if Cameron meant his alleged support for Thanos as a joke.
