Following the release of Thor: Ragnarok, speculation intensified that antagonist Hela (Cate Blanchett) would not only somehow survive the destruction of Asgard, but have a major part to play in Avengers: Infinity War.

Rumours circulated ahead of the film's release that Hela would become the MCU's incarnation of Death, the force with which Thanos (Josh Brolin) becomes infatuated in the comics, and who prompted him to seek out the Infinity Stones in the first place.

Considering how horribly the MCU tends to handle romance, it was probably for the best that this turned out to be bull.

Thanos' motivation was ultimately just his own tyrannical desire to balance the universe's resources at any cost, while Hela appears to be dead for good.
