If you have watched Avengers Infinity War (and if you have not, consider this as a big, fat spoiler warning), the climax dealt a serious blow to the fans. As half the Avengers turned into dust, there was one death which was given a different treatment and allowed to tug at the heartstrings. As Peter Parker/Spider-Man tells he is not feeling so good to dad surrogate Tony Stark/Iron Man, he gets the longest and most improvised death scenes of Infinity War.

While the fans cried over it and praised the scene, they also pointed how the death scene was at variance with the rest of character deaths. Now, the film’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, have confirmed the fan theory – that it was Parker’s Spidey sense which made him aware that Thanos’ is going to snap his fingers and wipe away half the population of universe.

Joe Russo confirmed to Huff Post: “That’s correct, he was aware of something.” Spider sense was introduced early in Avengers: Infinity War when Peter Parker is introduced in the film. While he’s riding the school bus, we see the hair on Peter’s arm stand up as he is one of the first to become aware of the Black Order’s ship arriving over the skyline of NYC.

Spider sense, as the article informs us, is an alert system that allows Spider-Man to know when danger is approaching by delivering a tingling feeling at the base of his brain. It increases in severity depending on the threat-level, and has side effects and secondary functions, such as making Peter acutely aware of his surroundings at all times.
