He could have travelled to the future, especially to 2023, and prevented the Avengers from killing 2014's Thanos.
He didn't know he needed to travel to the future.
As far as he's concerned, he's won. He's achieved everything he set out to do, he's destroyed half of all life in the universe and "retired" to the Garden with the Infinity Stones.
He'd have no ...
Nebula didn't ask for a deed, she was just telling the story. Why did Ant-Man use "not it" in this conversation?
He's saying..."Don't choose me to go there"
Scott knows they have to go there to get the Soul Stone and he's making the deliberate statement that he doesn't want to be the one selected.
NEBULA: "A dominion of death, at the very ...
So why was the Ancient One hesitant to accept him in Dr. Strange?
She explains her reasoning immediately after Strange is thrown out, when speaking with Mordo.
AO: You think I was wrong to cast him out.
BM: Five hours later he's still on your doorstep. There's a strength to him.
AO: Stubbornness, arrogance, ambition. I've seen it all before.
BM: He ...
Thanos is enraged when he finally breaks the shield. Prior to his angry onslaught, we see the shield deflect the sword several times. It's not necessarily that Tony's blade is stronger than Steve's shield, but it isn't being hit as hard.
Tony's blade is made up of his nanites, which are extremely durable. For example, We also see the nanites make a gauntlet ...
But in Endgame when the heroes traveled back in time to get the Infinity Stones, at the events of The Avengers (2012 film), we see that Hulk from that time period talking. Which was never shown in the Avengers movie.
It's established that the Hulk can talk coherently provided he's not in complete "rage" mode during, say, battle.
When he bashes Loki he ...
Question: What is the Ancient One's mistake?
The mistake the Ancient One was referring to was her initial intent to not give the Time Stone to Banner.
Before explaining, it's important to mention/keep in mind that the Ancient One has the ability to see the future (but only so far).
Going into the events of The Avengers (as shown in Avengers: Endgame), the ...
Whoever is worthy can possess the power of Thor.
From the first Thor movie:
Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.
So, since Cap is worthy, he possesses all the powers of Thor.
It was always unclear why Captain America couldn't lift Mjolnir in Age of Ultron.
Was he not worthy at all? Unlikely; it's Captain America after all, worthiness goes with the character, his MCU version at least. Plus, Mjolnir did move. (Note that in the comics, Cap has wielded Mjolnir)
Was he not completely worthy yet? Possibly. After all, there is still ...
It was a shrunken Benatar, the spaceship Widow and Hawkeye later used to travel to Vormir. Rocket, obviously, is attached to this ship - and in the absence of most of the other Guardians (Nebula's still new), he's got the responsibility on it, unofficially.
The ship was almost certainly shrunk with Ant-Man's shrinking disks.

What’s with the clanks at the end of the credits in Avengers: Endgame?
According to Vanity Fair Disney have confirmed....
There is no traditional Marvel end-of-credits scene or teaser in Avengers: Endgame—but there is a little treat for patient fans who sat through the movie’s ...
Yeah, it was "never in the cards", Endgame being, well, an ending, etc. From an interview with USA Today:
But the newest blockbuster "Avengers: Endgame" – an action-packed, emotionally exhausting three-hour culmination of the 22-film saga so far – breaks from tradition by skipping Marvel's usual stingers, which have at times teased to the next movie in ...
The Time Stone ain't the only thing in this world that needs protection. Sure, it was a big deal to protect it while it was here, but it's not the only thing wizards do.
Remember that in Thor: Ragnarok, Strange explains to Thor that part of his role is to protect the Earth from intergalactic/interdimensional threats, Loki being one.
STRANGE: So, I keep ...
He did not know:
Tony: I have a little girl.
Howard: A girl would be nice. Less of a chance
she'd turn out exactly like me.
Tony: So, where are you
at with names?
Howard: Well, if it's a boy,
my wife likes Almanzo.
So I guess he's just using he as a somewhat neutral pronoun.
Originally, Thanos probably didn't care much about the Avengers other than as an obstacle to his mission of freeing the world from overpopulation. He thinks he's doing everyone a favour, even though humans and other lower life forms might not yet understand it.
However, in Endgame he learns that his future self succeeded, but even five years after the snap, ...
This was addressed in an interview - basically, who says she didn't/won't?
Some people felt like Natasha deserved a funeral just like Tony. [...] The Russos cleared the air regarding this topic as well:
Q: Why didn’t Black Widow get a funeral as well?
A: Did you forget when the heroes were mourning for her after when they returned from the past? ...
Tony is flying the Benetar Milano, the ship belonging to the Guardians of the Galaxy. This makes sense, as we know the guardians piloted this ship to Titan and we are never shown it being damaged or destroyed. The large 4 windowed area where he is recording his message is the cockpit (compare to this clip from Infinity War), and at 0:20 in your linked video, ...
The Time Stone itself doesn't do anything to protect Earth, in Doctor Strange it is explained that Dormammu is kept out by the three Sanctums (New York, London and Hong Kong) forming a magical shield around the planet:
The Time Stone is a powerful weapon that can be used by the Sorcerer Supreme in their fight against darkness, as Doctor Strange uses it to ...
Less than a day
Firstly, Tony says in his message to Pepper that it's Day 22 and that the oxygen will run out "tomorrow morning".
Then, when Captain Marvel rescues the ship and brings it to Earth, Rhodey explains that
...it's been 23 days since Thanos came to Earth".
This indicates that Captain Marvel made the trip in 12 to 24 hours.
Her mistake was refusing to give Banner the Time stone.
Strange had to give it willingly to Thanos so she would be convinced that things really were that serious. Presumably in other futures he saw Thanos eventually gets it anyway, and then the others are unable to complete the time heist.
Red Skull's instructions are you must lose that which you love not sacrifice it and Clint does lose what he loves.
Red Skull: In order to take the stone you must lose that which you love. A soul...For a soul.
Avengers: Infinity War
Red Skull: In order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. An everlasting exchange. A soul, for a soul....
Paulie_D's answer is great and I think is the most satisfying one. I'd like to bring an additional argument to the table.
We don't know if the Time Stone is able to do that. (Or, even if it was, if Thanos is able to do the trick)
By memory (I can maybe later fact check a bit more), the Time Stone is used:
1. To forward time locally
Used by Dr. Strange in ...
Captain America didn't return through the Quantum machine, he went to the past and lived his life. He got to the same area by just traveling there at the appropriate time. He chose to stay in the past and live a full life. That's why he is now older in the scene and he just appears on the bench.
There is no indication if he has lost any of his powers, we ...
Then, why did Doctor Strange give away the Time Stone to Thanos while it's anyway not there at the end of Endgame ?
What other choice did he have?
Of the 14,000,605 outcomes there was only one way to win.
Strange had to give up the Time Stone to let the remaining Avengers on Titan continue to live (Thanos would have killed them otherwise) so that ultimate ...
During a Q&A with Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo posted on Chinese website Tencent QQ (and translated by Reddit), the lack of this scene was finally addressed. In typical Russo fashion though, he suggested many possible explanations for why it's not in the movie.
Did you forget when the heroes where mourning for her after ...
She didn't know.
She only knew that Gamora knew where the stone was, was taken there by Thanos to help obtain it, and didn't come back - she didn't know the conditions under which the soul stone could be obtained (and neither did Thanos, and he thinks he knows everything).
Captain Marvel is set before Infinity War and Ant-man and the Wasp is set at the same time, so it's really not that important to watch them. Although, I'd say you have to watch mid-credit scenes of these movies because they play as teasers for Endgame.
You may skip Captain Marvel though if you have background information about that character. However, you ...
We probably get Gamora back, just not exactly the one we had since the first GOTG. This Gamora is the one who travelled with Thanos and Nebula from 2014.
The way I see it, Quill was trying to locate her in that scene, possibly to set a course for her, and this might be what GOTG vol. 3 is about; although it's unclear whether Saldana's contract has her in ...
