Your memory of this scene is incorrect. Nebula has a glitch and displays a hologram of War Machine talking about Quill and how they are going to get the Power Stone. This prompts Thanos to take Nebula to his ship and read her memory. Its not as you say that he simply feels the need to read her mind. THANOS (2014): Ronan's located the Power Stone. I'm ...

He doesn't 'just decide' to read her her mind... When 2014 (past) Nebula first hears from Thanos that he has the location of the Power Stone (Orb), she is suddenly incapacitated from the first burst of 'interference' from the 2023 (future) Nebula who has recently travelled back to 2014, resulting in her inadvertently projecting a portion of the (future) ...

In the MCU, it's established that you need to be a very powerful being to wield the Infinity Gems. If you remember in Guardians of the Galaxy, all of them had to hold hands to try and harness the energy of the Power Stone. If it was just Quill, he'd have died. That applies to Jane in Thor too, the Aether was killing her. In Endgame, for a short moment ...

In theory, I suppose he could, in an ideal world. Recall though that it's not just using the Stones that caused the damage but rather the first power surge from taking control. SmartHulk is damaged just by wearing the Gauntlet (as is Tony) and that damage is, apparently, permanent....he's not primarily damaged by snapping...the damage has already happened ...

Of course it still happens. If it hadn't the whole movie wouldn't exist! Everything makes sense if you look at it from the way they explained it from the movie. Going back into the past and changing things creates new timelines... sometimes. The rest of the times, it doesn't. That's because it already happened that way. Captain America didn't change ...

No. Bruce Banner: Changing the past doesn't change the future. Scott Lang: Look, we go back, we get the stones before Thanos gets them. Thanos doesn't have the stones. Problem solved. Nebula: That's not how it works. ... Bruce Banner: If you travel to the past, that past becomes your future and your former present becomes the ...

The plan was to get the Infinity Stones to Scott who would then take them through the tunnel, this is made somewhat clear during the initial "plan". "Steve: Get it started. We'll get the stones to you. Avengers: Endgame Scott presumably knew of more than just the Infinity Stones in New York because he was present when they came up with the plan. It ...

The other possibility is that Hulk didn't bust through the stairwell in the original timeline. Perhaps a butterfly effect happened between the Avengers arriving in 2012 and when the Avengers get in the elevator. In the first Avengers movie, we can see Bruce Banner eating shawarma in the end credits scene with the rest of the Avengers. So in the original ...

There's another element that the other answers haven't addressed: Not half an hour before the Hulk's stairway-induced rampage, Tony had flown through the Chitauri wormhole and detonated a nuclear bomb. This very nearly killed him and/or trapped him on the wrong side of the wormhole, and Iron Man 3 firmly establishes that the whole ordeal left him with post-...

There's much evidence that when they travelled to the past, they created an alternate timeline: This scene with Hulk and the stairs Loki escapes right away with the Tesseract The whole Captain America vs Captain America fight All of these scenes are incompatible with what we know happened in the first Avengers film. Also, there's another point in the film,...

In 2012 Tony took the elevator and ended up in an argument about who should keep the Tesseract. At that time hulk busted out of the stairway and exited the building. Tony's mind was involved in more important things, like the Tesseract. He had gotten used to Hulk busting things up now and then, so it was one more of such things. Tony had lost so many people ...

Right before the scene, the event happening is a jurisdictional dispute between a God of Thunder and the director of SHIELD, which we know eventually results in the Tesseract going to Asgard. And this dispute had started heating up in the scene we witnessed. It only got interrupted, and allowed for the heist, because past-Tony was given a cardiac arrest, and ...

Because they brought it with them. Before going on the Time Heist, they shrunk it down and we see it in Hawkeye's hand As the Power Stone and Soul Stone were off Earth, the Benatar traveled back to 2014, first dropping off Nebula and War Machine on Morag before Hawkeye and Black Widow used it to travel to Vormir. Source: Benatar > History > Used by the ...

I think you're taking it too literally when they said Dr. Strange has to physically live and die in those timelines. I agree with a previous post that he doesn't actually travel to those timelines. I think what the directors meant was that he wasn't just observing the possibilities; he actually had to go through and experience each and every scenario. So ...

You misunderstood one important thing: Dr. Strange did not travel through time. He just looked into 14mil different possible futures to see the one scenario where they could win. His body stayed in the present all the time, as you can clearly see during this whole scene. And even if he would have been able to really travel there: this future would not be ...

I may stand to be corrected as I have only seen Endgame twice back in May, but it seems, especially towards the very climax, that he slightly shepherds the last few moments towards the win, such as his words to Tony - "If I tell you how it ends it may not happen that way" (or something similar) and right at the very end, it seems that both Tony are on the ...

This was primarily achieved with a 60-70 lb fat suit to add on the additional bulk and get the actor to walk and move about with the weight that would look natural on camera. Hair and makeup also did a convincing job of making his face looked puffed for the fat Thor role, and I assume they touched it up with CGI afterward to blend it all together(unsourced). ...
