Subscriner numbers ballooned from just over 50,000 users to almost half-a-million in a week as the worldwide community hopped aboard the fad (or "hype train"; youth lingo).
Now if it is legit, it's possible that the sub is fake (a lot of the big subs, DC, Marvel, TV, movie subs etc.at Reddit are run by employees and/or shills) and was created by Marvel themselves, and that they have some sort of script to ban half of the current 569,004 Black Order members (or the mods have a script). The announcement was made last week and 4 days ago, the subreddit had almost 300,000 subscribers. They especially asked Josh Brolin a.k.a Thanos to film a video of him recreating his Infinity War snap. The subreddit became so popular that it caught the eye of Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo as well as Thanos himself, Josh Brolin.
"Here we go, Reddit Users", a shirtless Brolin said smiling before he snaps his fingers. Luckily, that permission was granted - though the date of the ban was moved from July 3 to July 9, as most of Reddit's engineers were set to celebrate Independence Day with a day off.
Since the Russo Brothers posted the video, which was shortly before 10 AM Pacific time, the initial tweet has gained over 4.6 thousand likes and it's been retweeted over 1,000 times. The Infinity War tribute page is now trending and gaining even more attention than it ever though it was going to.

According to reports, the train was travelling from Uzunkopru to Instanbul and came off the rails in the Tekirdag Corlu district. Over 100 ambulances have been sent to the scene, TRT Haber said, quoting Health Ministry Undersecretary Eyup Gumus.
What do you think of Brolin's participation in the subreddit snap? If you are one of the lucky users that's chosen, you can join the r/inthesoulstone subreddit support group. But in return, Reddit's admins are creating a bot that will let The-Jedi-Apprentice easily ban half of the members.
There's still plenty of time to subscribe to the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit to see if you make the cut or not.
This isn't the first Thanos-related internet concoction to make its way online after the release of "Infinity War", however.
One subreddit will soon be perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
