I think everything was vague enough to work for Endgame, but the MCU moving forward seems like it’s gonna be a mess. I’m kind of glad I’m done caring lol
How is it gunna be a mess? Only person in the current MCU it could significantly impact is Dr Strange. Plus, there is only one branch reality the movies can go off in and that is the Loki one....right now atleast.

Seen a few folk say they are done with MCU now.

The Loki one may be the show...like Wanda and Vision, then there’s Cap and Bucky getting their own which I feel they may swap the mantle a few times.

They just needed to snatch the Time Stone and use it the same way Thanks did to get the mind stone?

Just use the Time Stone to restore the full gauntlet in the present.

Also, why the panic about getting more Pym Particles? Again, just put everything into getting the Time Stone.

I can’t wait to get the 4K version and watch this again at home. That last battle was pretty amazing. I just felt like some of the first 2/3 could have been trimmed. It did not need to be 3 hours long.

I have to say I’m more intrigued with the next GOTG movie over anything else. “The Dude” is a great addition to their ship.

The WandaVision show is odd if it really does take place in the 50s.

Thinking about this more and I have a problem with the fact that Dr. Strange looked into the future and saw that Time Travel was the solution and then he gives away the Time Stone.

There should be no need for Iron Man to mod Pym tech into a Time Machine when you already have what should be the ultimate tool of Time Control.

Dr. Strange could have actually just gone into the future and appeared after Thanos was dead. Then use the Time Stone to reverse the Gauntlet's destruction just like Thanos did with the Mind Stone to get it from The Vision. Then take his Time Stone back to the present and hand it off to Thanos knowing he could undo all this later.

For some reason, it keeps bugging me that between Captain Marvel and Time Travel in this, and a briefcase full of glowing stones, and haveing Samual L. Jackson, there is no nod or reference to Pulp Fiction.

You keep thinking....

1. Strange looks at possible out comes.
2. Giving Thanos the Time Stone is obviously a major part of the 1 outcome where they win.
3. If he doesn't give Thanos the stone then the desired outcome can not be acheived. So, travelling is pointless. He also can't use the wtone to travel if he gives it to Thanos--which he has to do.

He could have just created a portal and left the planet before Thanos arrived...

I meant kind of the opposite. He does the traveling first and meets the Avengers after Thor kills Thanos. He then uses the power of the Time Stone to restore the Gauntlet. Then he returns with his Time Stone back to the end battle of Infinity War letting events continue and he can then even give the Time Stone to Thanos to spare Iron Man and letting himself and everyone get dusted.

Or Mysterio could just be lying to them about that? They did change scene and dialogue in many trailers before....
Well the Russos themselves confirmed alternative timelines and such. But yeah, Mysterio might be up to his old shenanigans - which would be cheesy as heck.

He can't. You can't travel to a future tat hasn't happened yet...hence the 14 million possible futures.

Not sure why people try and complicate very simple things. If Dr Strange does anything other than what he does then they lose, simple as that. End of.

Chris Evans is done as Capt. I’m sure money can change that, but he’s retired.
But that is the beauty of it. In another reality it might not be Steve Rogers who was chosen for the experiment.

Just for the record, I don't think they will bring back any of the lost Avengers.

Wasn’t something said in Endgame, as well as BtF, like if you go back into the past that past is now your future and that future you came from is your past, so technically your going back to the past, in a loop cos you’re experiencing everything as a new????

I wanna believe the first branch in time would be the moment Wanda actually destroyed the soul stone, Thanos just reduced them to atoms so technically they still do exist, just not in physical form

They should have shown Steve Rogers smile and hold up a Sports Almanac.

Yup, your past becomes your future and your future is now your past. Makes sense if you think about it.
