This only shows death from the perspective of superheroes. What about from the perspective of those who didn’t know the slamming was happening?
It turns out that Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) was one of the Avengers who had no conscience due to his temporary retirement. The scene of his family disappearing in the blink of an eye is now considered by fans to be one of the most haunting of all.
What does this mean for other post-snap stories for the future?
Didn’t Clint Barton really know The Snap?

There would be no way for Barton to know about the slamming coming after he briefly retired from the Avengers to spend quality time with his family. Some might say that having a happy family life away from the overwhelming chaos was much healthier mentally and physically.
However, the horror of seeing the snapshot and not knowing all the details is technically worse. Departure End of Game with this scene also created a dark veil that deeply affected viewers.
As we saw recently on Reddit, where someone noticed how haunting the disappearance of the Barton family was, the viewers really felt a sense of dread. After all, it showed that Barton knew happy family normality by teaching his kids archery on his farm, but that everyone suddenly disappeared. The panic that hit him set the whole tone of the film, not to mention the rationale at the end.
Jeremy Renner was also not made aware of The Snap’s occurrence during filming, so his horrified reactions could be as authentic as possible.
Does this snap scene open up the possibility of a new show?
If everyone can agree that Hawkeye’s family being sprinkled in seconds is the scariest opening scene in MCU history, what does it say about the others on earth who are experiencing the snap? Hundreds of millions of people were probably in the same situation as Barton and did not know what was going on.
While The Avengers often made the headlines, no one really knows how many people paid attention worldwide. In Barton’s case, he apparently did not pay attention to Thanos’ potential on earth to destroy half of all civilization.
Perhaps it could be said that it seems impossible that he never knew of Thanos’ arrival. Again, even in reality, some people refuse to own televisions or watch the news because it makes them feel better not to.
Not knowing about the snap might have been for the best in some cases. However, it also heightens the fear that something unknown will happen and that for hours or days it will not be known what caused it. Fans note that they want to see how people have reacted to The Snap internationally.
A full horror movie could be made on the Snap

Somewhere later, something will likely be done to show how the rest of the world has emotionally dealt with the loss of more than a billion people. As someone noted on the Reddit thread above: “It was like the start of a horror movie, with thunder echoing in the distance as he stood frantic and confused in the empty field “
There are probably many other scenarios where families have been caught off guard by what has happened. Other scenarios could be even more frightening than the scene with Barton and his family.
If to come Falcon and the winter soldier seems to face the possible shock of bringing everyone back so suddenly, understanding how the world has handled the snap may have more social insight. I hope that such a show or film will never prepare us for something that happens in the same way in our own reality.
