Did the Unsnap in Avengers: Endgame put everyone back to the place they were when they were Snapped?

Dr. Strange and Peter Parker were on Titan when they were Snapped, so did Dr. Strange create a portal all the way from Titan to Earth?

Or did Banner include putting people back where they "belong" as part of the Unsnap?

  • Anyone snapped away in a plane wouldn't come back, although at least they can get a proper burial this time. – DJ Spicy Deluxe May 25 at 16:20
  • They got back. But where did everyone (like Black Panther and Asgardians) get so their portals? – Nazgul May 26 at 8:44

    @DJSpicyDeluxe-Levi: Planets themselves were not at the same place when people were unsnapped... – Taladris May 26 at 14:52
  • Well I wouldn't want to be the guy who got snapped away while being on a public toilet/in a dressing room/a bathroom/... But it is best not to think too much about the logic of things in this movie.

Did the Unsnap in Avengers: Endgame put everyone back to the place they were when they were Snapped?

It appears so.

If you look through the "portals" opened by the sorcerers' sling-rings you can see where they are coming from.

GotG & Spiderman from Titan

Valkyrie & Asgardians from New Asgard

enter image description here

Black Panther & Shuri from Wakanda

enter image description here

Wong & other sorcerers from Kamar-Taj(?)

enter image description here

This appears to be from where they were "snapped" and/or currently living.

  • ... wait, were all the Asgardians snapped at New Asgard? I thought that's where they settled after the snappening? – muru May 25 at 8:49
  • @muru Valkyrie wasn't snapped, so a lot of the Asgardians emerging from that portal (maybe all) are the ones who didn't get snapped. – Parrotmaster May 25 at 15:52
  • @DavidGrinberg ha! Maybe the sorcerers were spending the time between the reverse snap and final battle catching people falling from the sky. – Kodos Johnson May 26 at 6:37
  • @muru I don't think Asgardians were snapped at all. At the start of Infinity War Thanos already killed half of the Asgardians on that ship. I believe Thanos did not snap away races which he already "halved" "manually" – Arthur Shveida May 27 at 8:19

Based on Kevin Feige's AMA (Ask me anything), "Smart" Hulk brought everyone back and also brought them to a safe place.

    Mr. Feige in all honours, but seeing the other answer and the, let's say, fuzziness of that linked Reddit question, this seems more like a throwaway remark by him in order to prevent nitpicks/concerns like "what if some dude reappeared in mid air" rather than a clear statement that people actually got transported to entirely different places. The surface of Titan could for all intents and purposes actually be a "safe place", but it's not clear if that's what Feige means. To be clear, this is defnitely a useful interview, but it could use a little more critical reflection in the answer. – Napoleon Wilson May 24 at 17:05

    This is most critical for the Asgardians, who were in deep space at the time of the Snap. – Harper May 25 at 16:15

Excellent answer by Paulie_D and I would like to add one more thing.

Although there is a considerable amount of time between Hulk's (un) snap and all the Avengers returning through portals to fight, we immediately see the effects of (un)snap with the phone call from Laura, Clint's wife.

So, she returns to the same place in her home backyard along with her kids but finds that Clint is absent so, she immediately calls him from her cell phone.

    And somebody paid her cell phone plan all those years. Or else Hawkeye re-upped it – Harper May 25 at 16:14
  • He could have simply had the house number saved as "Laura"... If you're the bread winner and frequently out working (or being a gd superhero), it's not unusual to save the house number in your significant others name. – DeeJayh May 25 at 21:11

    If Professor Hulk can unsnap everyone to a safe place, of course he can unsnap all of their phone contracts, mortgages, legal declarations of death, etc too. – rickster May 25 at 21:26
  • Her cell plan was probably on an auto pay from an account that didn't get closed. Her gym membership was also being paid. – Hannover Fist May 26 at 0:19

When the Avengers show up, Peter Parker says this to Tony Stark when they meet:

You will not believe what's been going on. Do you remember when we were in space? And I got all dusty? I must've passed out, 'cause I woke up, and you were gone. But Doctor Strange was there, right? He was like, "It's been five years. Come on, they need us!" And then he started doing the yellow sparkly thing that he does all the time...

So yes, at least the Guardians + Peter + Dr. Strange were brought back where they vanished so I would assume everybody else was as well
