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 ...

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 ...

It appears difficult to use the Tesseract for these purposes without some extra mechanical agency to help control its power. The fist time we see the Tesseract open a portal (at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger) it seems to be entirely random following it getting struck during the battle on the Valkyrie, whisking the Red Skull off to Vormir or ...

Hofund was indeed broken in the battle, we see this when Heimdall sends Hulk back to Earth by summoning the Bifrost. That is the last we see of the sword and then the ship is blown up using the Power Stone by Thanos. Therefore, it is quite likely that the sword was broken up further but we don't see it again to know for sure.

It seems to be general knowledge that with the all the Infinity Stones the wielder (if he is strong enough) can do... Anything. Certainly the Asgardians seemed to be aware of it...even Odin had a fake Gauntlet made up. In addition, both Wong and Dr Strange are both aware of the Infinity Stones and their inherent nature and the power of individual stones ...

Blip and Snap are different events as per Kevin Feige: "It came pretty fast. We always referred to it as the Blip, and then the public started referring to it as the Snap," explained Feige. "We think it's funny when high school kids just call this horrific, universe-changing event the Blip. We've narrowed it down to, the Snap is when everybody disappeared ...

This may be a reference to an obscure "trend" from Scotland. The Glasgow Stonner Kebab "The Stonner", a 1,000-calorie, deep fried pork sausage kebab has been dubbed the most dangerous fast food in Britain. The connection is that Vision and Scarlet Witch are hiding in Edinburgh, Scotland and they got to make a reference to a local 10+ year old fast food ...

In the comics (Gamora Vol 1 #4), some male Zen-Whoberis/Zehoberei are shown: They are the same species as Gamora, who is shown in the middle. It's also worth mentioning that Gamora calls them her "relatives". In the movie canon, what Gamora says in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 heavily implies she has a birth father: Gamora: My father didn't stress ...

If Wong was there Karl should have been too. Just because Wong was at the New York Sanctum with Strange doesn't mean Karl would be. At the end of Doctor Strange, Karl felt disillusioned due to repeated breaking of the laws of nature after learning about how the Ancient One was siphoning power from the Dark Dimension and how Strange manipulated Time to ...

"She'll find out eventually" isn't good enough. Earth is in trouble right now. Captain Marvel needs to find out right now. It's unclear how much time has passed between the snap and her arrival back on Earth in Captain Marvel's post-credits scene, but she didn't get there immediately, so the sooner she found out, the sooner she would arrive. As for the 50% ...

It wasn't thrown...it was pulled away. At least that's the way it appears....Proxima appears to call the spear to her so she can use it as a weapon. It certainly looks, to me, as though it was pulled from Natasha's grasp rather than being thrown backwards. There is a "transcript" at a Wikia (so not official) which would seem to confirm this that I am not ...


32

There is no power in the snap. That is just a gesture that - for all we know - Thanos himself picked arbitrarily. This is all based on folklore. Magic and superpowers quite often have some kind of activation gesture, command word or other specific "on" switch. Which makes sense as you don't want to turn them on or off randomly. So there needs to be ...

Nerdist tired to analyse this based on what we know from films and interviews: Infinity War‘s VFX supervisor Dan DeLeeuw revealed to Inverse that the Power Stone was responsible for the infamous “blipping” that turned the Mad Titan’s victims into dust. When you see how that purple rock ripped apart flesh and manipulated matter in the first Guardians of ...

Yes Watching the scene where Thanos takes Gamora we see what appear to be males of her species in the background. This guy in the background appears to be one (ignore the giant watermark I couldn't find a better video easily):


31

Because Eitri's life was given to him by Thanos. Three hundred Dwarves lived on this ring. I thought if I did what he asked, they'd be safe. I made what he wanted: a device capable of harnessing the power of the Stones. And he killed everyone anyway. All except me. 'Your life is yours', he said. 'But your hands... Your hands are mine alone.' Source: ...

It just lets you know they are in Scotland. If they were in Paris they might sit in a café somewhere that had the Eiffel Tower in view. If they were in New York they might have yellow cabs going by or perhaps if they wanted to indicate that they were in New York prior to 2001 they'd be somewhere you could see the World Trade Centre. All of these things let ...

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 ...

The Infinity Gauntlet is seemingly damaged - we can assume that Thanos probably won't be able to use all the infinity stones together again due to level of damage to the gauntlet - but it is just a container. The most important thing is that Thanos still has all of the Infinity Stones, which essentially makes him the most powerful being of the Marvel ...


23

No the stones aren't damaged or destroyed, the Infinity Gauntlet is clearly damaged but the stones aren't. Thanos even uses the Space Stone to leave the area and preumably uses the Time Stone to reverse the damage to himself later on off screen. He also appears to "go into" the Soul Stone when he snaps so presumably at least those 3 work. You can see the ...


21

He should have known that a single dwarf can operate the forge by himself, should Thor appear there, Thanos is always a few steps ahead of everyone else. Eitri didn't and couldn't operate the forge all by himself, Thor did a lot of the work with the help of Rocket and Groot even helped at the end. They simply wouldn't have been able to get the forge started ...


20

The Gauntlet is clearly damaged but a freeze frame of Thanos just as he disappears and (not coincidentally) healing his mortal wound from Stormbreaker shows that he is using multiple Infinity Stones at the same time. Source Therefore it's probably (if not necessary) that all of the Infinity Stones are intact and the Gauntlet still functional.

All those "space-craft"s carrying Thanos armies landed over Wakanda much earlier. Actually, no...they land about an hour earlier. The whole "Battle of Wakanda" from seeing the delivery vehicles descending from orbit to the "snap" is only one hour. Now, we don't know the relative times but since Wakanda and NY (I assume) are both in daylight, it's not ...

We never saw Nick Fury with the pager before. That doesn't mean he didn't have it. Clearly, this time he feels that the issue is disastrous enough, widespread enough and urgent enough to call Captain Marvel as a last resort. Recall that he has seconds to react and the only thing he has time to do is use the pager. None of the other events that took place ...


19

Well, we don't know exactly, but it seems they don't know what happened. They seem to think they were passed out during that period. When Peter hugged Tony Stark, we can see him mentioning that last time he was dusted he must have been passed out. Peter: Do you remember when we were in space? And I got all dusty? I must've passed out, 'cause I woke up, ...


18

Yes We all know that Doctor Strange saw 14,000,605 futures including the one where they win. Near the end of Infinity War, he gave the time stone to Thanos when he was about to kill Tony. He must have seen that Tony will be the one who will invent the time travel formula and build a second Infinity Gauntlet (of course with help of Professor Hulk) and will ...


17

Unclear. The whole battle was left off screen so we can't be certain but there are several things that turn the tides to Thanos' side. He was defeated by Thanos, wielding the Power Stone, and Thanos’s children. This whole battle is left offscreen, so we’re left to extrapolate from what we are shown. All we know is that they were defeated severely ...


17

My father is many things. A liar is not one of them. Apparently, this is true. I can't find a single instance of Thanos lying about anything. Certainly, his motivations and reasoning are flawed but he holds his beliefs honestly and he's ruthless and powerful enough to follow through without the need to lie about it,. As for the example you gave, Thanos ...


15

What it comes down to is different meanings of the world reality. In this exchange between Tony and Dr. Strange Tony: What is your job exactly? Besides making balloon animals. Dr. Strange: Protecting your reality, douchebag. But Dr. Strange isn't referring to reality as the sum total of all of existence. He is only referring to the dimension ...

Thanos is strong, even without the stones. Thanos was indeed very strong that he managed to beat Hulk in Infinity War without using any Stones. They barely managed to hurt Thanos in Infinity War (all this, for a single drop of blood). But at the end of this battle in End Game, Thanos looks pretty much injured. Some of the key differences between the ...


14

Because that's the only possibility out of 14,000,605 where they can win. Peter Parker: Hey, what was that? Doctor Strange: [panting] I went forward in time to view alternate futures. To see all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict. Peter Quill: How many did you see? Doctor Strange: 14,000,605. Tony Stark: How many did we win? ...
