Avengers: Endgame’s twists and ending — we now have spoiler-filled questions



We have got so many questions!

Marvel Studios

Calling Avengers: Endgame a dense film is like saying Tony Stark has a fascination with metalworking. In different phrases, it is a large understatement.

Because the end result of 22 movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Endgame has the unenviable job of wrapping up a decade’s value of story and character arcs and, after all, addressing that large cliff-hanger on the finish of Infinity Conflict.

For essentially the most half, it succeeds, providing followers — particularly hard-core followers who’ve obsessed over the MCU movies — a satisfying conclusion. That it may well serve so many various capabilities and work as an entertaining blockbuster in its personal proper is a testomony to the imaginative and prescient of Marvel Studios and the ability of Endgame administrators Anthony and Joe Russo.

However it’s not excellent. And after a little bit of reflection, you would possibly scratch your head on the implications of a few of Endgame’s twists.

If you have not watched the movie, STOP READING NOW. That is your spoiler warning.


Significantly, again away now.

Listed below are the most important questions we now have after Endgame:

What is the cope with Hawkeye’s new getup?

Let’s begin with a simple one earlier than we actually go down the rabbit gap. 

Comics followers will acknowledge Clint Barton’s swap from Hawkeye to Ronin, however the film did not absolutely clarify the necessity for the brand new id and costume. I get that dropping your loved ones is traumatic, however does it justify a hero costume makeover — to not point out a full-sleeve tattoo? And the place the heck did he get these new weapons and kit? He would not have the help of SHIELD anymore, so is he independently rich like Bruce Wayne?

It appears Hawkeye is a sufferer of the restricted character improvement he is had prior to now. Endgame makes it as much as him, however there’s a bit of an excessive amount of without delay.

Not less than he appears to be like cool although.

Avengers: Endgame is an exciting sequel to each MCU…


What about these 5 years?

Early in Endgame the story jumps forward 5 years, exhibiting the survivors residing with the fallout of what is been known as “The Decimation.” When the Avengers save the day, everybody returns to the current, 5 years after the disaster. It is a daring choice that ensures the MCU stays scarred by Thanos’ notorious snap.

However the five-year hole results in a whole lot of questions. What concerning the individuals who died in these 5 years? And as fellow CNET editor Mike Sorrentino identified, what if somebody moved on in life and remarried in that interval? That may make for an ungainly reunion.

On prime of that, can humanity even rebuild from turning into a postapocalyptic society? It is exhausting to see everybody going again to the best way issues had been, although that appeared to be the implication once we noticed Peter Parker returning to highschool.

Talking of which…

How will Section Four handle the time leap?

The trailers for Spider-Man: Far From Residence — the last film within the MCU’s Section 3 — trace at Peter Parker and pals on a enjoyable worldwide romp by means of Europe. Ought to we assume they had been all affected by The Snap however are actually persevering with their training 5 years later like nothing occurred? Has worldwide tourism simply picked up the place it left off? How will Far From Residence handle the time leap?

The ramifications are much more critical with Black Panther, whose sequel will probably be a part of Section 4. Wakanda misplaced its king, and his sister, for 5 years. What occurred? Did another person take over? And does T’Challa routinely regain the throne after his return?

One of many last scenes had T’Challa overlooking his kingdom alongside Queen Ramanda and Shuri. However that glosses over some critical constitutional questions on how issues operated whereas he was gone.

One of the best second from each Marvel Cinematic Universe…


What concerning the historical past of the MCU?

Any time you use time journey in a narrative, you are going to open cracks in logic. The Russo brothers admirably tried to button up the leaks by having Captain America return the stones to their numerous locations within the timeline — however that does not repair all the things.

As an illustration…

Are there two Captain Americas now?

We have now the unique Steve Rogers frozen in ice till he wakened within the 21st century MCU, as we noticed within the films. However now there is a second, older Steve Rogers hanging out in Peggy Carter’s house within the intervening years. It is a stretch to think about Captain America staying hidden all that point.

The place the heck is Loki?

In the course of the Again to the Future-style journey again to the occasions of the unique Avengers film, Scott Lang and Tony Stark’s try to nab the House Stone backfires, permitting the freshly apprehended Loki to nab the gem and disappear.

In the end, did Loki’s escape change his destiny by the hands of Thanos in Infinity Conflict? It is believable, given experiences that Disney Plus is engaged on an unique present based mostly on the character.

But when that is true, then would not it have affected the occasions of Thor: The Darkish World, additionally revisited in Endgame? However throughout Thor’s personal time-jaunt we briefly see Loki in a cell, so the timeline wasn’t altered.

How are Nebula and Gamora alive?

When Current Good Nebula shoots Previous Evil Nebula, should not Current Good Nebula stop to exist, just like the {photograph} in Again to the Future? Alternatively, if it did occur to Previous Evil Nebula, then Current Good Nebula ought to keep in mind it, and in flip that reminiscence would’ve been downloaded so Previous Evil Nebula would see the hit coming.

And do not get us began on how there’s now an alternate model of Gamora.

Did Infinity Conflict even occur?

Thanos and his crew jumped forward from 2013 (throughout the unique Guardians of the Galaxy) to the current, and are defeated. So past-Thanos could not have manipulated the occasions that led to Infinity Conflict. If he by no means gathered the stones, Tony could not have undone the snap, which did not even occur anyway.  

And now my head hurts…

Can the gauntlet revive Thanos?

Do not forget, the gauntlet continues to be round.

Did Captain America reconnect with the Pink Cranium?

Bear in mind, Cap went again in time to return all the Infinity Stones, proper? If he returned the soul stone to Vormir, would not he have run into the Pink Cranium? Granted, Pink Cranium was probably free of his burden of watching over the stone, nevertheless it’s not like he has a ship to take him off planet. 

That may be a heck of an ungainly reunion. 

Would Tony Stark again his mind up?

He is finished it in the comics. Or possibly I am nonetheless in denial about dropping Robert Downey Jr. Let’s hope the Avengers do not pluck a teenage Tony from earlier within the timeline both… that is occurred too.

Is Black Widow actually lifeless?

That is one loss of life that appears everlasting, because it completes Natasha Romanov’s arc as a loner spy who discovered a household value sacrificing herself for. As she mentioned in Avengers, “I’ve acquired purple in my ledger, I would prefer to wipe it out.” Take into account it wiped.

However there’s the persistent buzz that Black Widow will star in her personal movie. Certain, it may very well be a prequel, however this can be a comedian e book universe, and deaths are all too simply reversed. In actual fact, of all of the individuals left supposedly lifeless on the finish of Endgame, three — Black Widow, Loki and the Imaginative and prescient — are all headlining future MCU films and TV exhibits.

The place’s Imaginative and prescient?

With WandaVision coming to the Disney Plus streaming service, there was an opportunity that Imaginative and prescient would return. However except for a passing reference on the finish by Wanda, Imaginative and prescient was nowhere to be discovered. The present may very well be a prequel to Infinity Conflict, however in that film Shuri was engaged on separating Imaginative and prescient from his Infinity Stone — might he be resurrected with out it?

Is Hulk’s consciousness gone?

Bruce Banner and the Hulk have merged into “Professor Hulk.” It appears Bruce is extra in management, presumably submerging the Hulk character we final noticed in Thor: Ragnarok. How did that even occur? It is a reasonably large deal to simply clarify away as taking place offscreen.

Does Thor ever eat a salad?

Massive Stomach Thor is the most effective Thor.
