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). ...

Yes (kind of) as per director, from screencrush Did Tom Holland’s Peter Parker have an Uncle Ben? This time, Watts gave me a much more concrete, much more detailed answer. “Yes. Definitely. Did you notice his initials on Peter’s suitcase?” He continued; “Yes, Uncle Ben did exist in the MCU,” he replied “Yeah. I mean, we don’t know,” and ...

Probably not. Disclaimer: This answer contains educated guesses and speculation. Dr. Strange: [You want] to murder trillions. Thanos: With all six stones, I could simply snap my fingers, and they would all cease to exist. I call that... mercy. It's not flat out said that the process is painless, but Thanos reassures Dr. Strange that the process is "...

It's unclear Certainly there are indications that some characters feel something but whether this is actual PAIN or merely a feeling of disintegration / railing against death isn't clear. Peter Parker seems to know something is wrong...also Drax but others just "dust" without comment or screams. Indeed, when Peter Parker returns he relates it to like ...


2

Not really. If we take a look at the people who were vanished didn't feel pain, but they were bewildered by seeing others getting disappeared and then seeing the world vanish before their eyes. They felt weird, but not the pain. As per my answer to another question, they felt like they were passed out, which indicate that they didn't feel pain. Spiderman ...

You're assuming that Heimdall is acting solely as a glorified doorman but he's so much more. Certainly he controls access to the Bifrost but his principal role is guardian of Asgard. This is because he can see and hear practically across the universe to detect potential threats to Asgard. Essentially, he's the main guardian and watchman for Asgard ...

Actually he calls her Maguna twice-once outside when trying to find her by the tent, and again when he tells her the “horrible story”...”Open upon a time Maguna went to bed...the end”. It seems like a pet name given to her, much the same way many fathers have pet names for their daughters. It also could’ve been how Morgan pronounced her name when she was ...

Clearly Thor's lightning powers, his ability to fly/hover and his super strength/durability are not derived from Mjolnir, because he demonstrates them in both Infinity War and Endgame while wielding Stormbreaker. Stormbreaker was forged by a dwarf and not enchanted by Odin. In which case, it seems that Mjolnir must grant some other powers to whomever is ...

No, he's not being inconsistent. Thor's powers are his, they're not granted by Mjolnir. He's capable - even if he doesn't realise/know it - of using them without Mjolnir, including after it's destroyed as he does in Thor: Ragnarok. In the first Thor movie, Odin takes Thor's powers away from him, and then places the enchantment on Mjolnir. The intention is ...

According to this site As you can see from the Google satellite view, the location above matches the original photographic background plate to a ‘T’. I can solidly proclaim that the Avengers are headquartered in Esopus, New York! For Captain America: Civil War the layout was changed slightly and the entire facility was placed into context of the Hudson ...


7

The only thing we know about the location is that it is an "abandoned Stark Industries warehouse located in Upstate New York" however, it's kind of impossible to pin down a definitive location as it was filmed in London, Norwich and Atlanta.

I found this in ScreenRant The Russo brothers have offered a simple solution. "Prior to the start of that scene, escape ships were deployed for Asgardians," Joe Russo explained, "including Valkyrie." He refused to shed any light on the ultimate fate of Korg, but at least this comment suggested Asgardians were able to launch escape pods. It's worth noting, ...

If you look closely at the opening shot on Avengers: Infinity War, the aft section of the Asgardian refugee ship is briefly visible floating away (in the far right of the middle shot of the sequence below) after the superstructure had been blown into 2 pieces... ...and if one listens to the commentary by the Russo's and writers Markus and McFeely they ...

If Captain America has to go back to return the stones, it's because they need to fix what they changed in the past. I will call this from now on 'Time Loop'. Infinity War Thanos knows this rule. He was put back to the time right after he travelled to the future by GAMORA. Let me explain this. Young Gamora (after Endgame) will acknowledge the problems of ...

How did she know that Wanda was protecting it? Proxima had not seen Wanda on the battlefield until then. Wanda makes an impression when she fights ("Why was she up there all this time?"), so Proxima wouldn't have missed her. Thus, if Wanda wasn't taking part in the fight, it stands to reason that she was somewhere else. As the situation is dire and she's ...

With the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, we now have an actor who has played a character in the MCU, and played that same character in a non-MCU movie: J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. While it takes on a different form than all of the other listed examples, J.K. Simmons still counts as an actor who was both in an MCU movie and a non-MCU Marvel movie....

Given how dire the situation of the Asgardians looks at the beginning of Infinity War, I think this is simply a matter of no time to do it, because Thanos hit them fast and he hit them hard. For starters, if you remember Ragnarok's mid-credits scene, you'll see that both Loki and Thor seemed awed by the ship they were seeing. They're surprised to see it (to ...

This question is a few months old, but I am adding an answer to point out that the Senator isn't offering Rogers a battlefield commission. US Army officer commissions are voted on in the Senate Armed Services Committee. If an important Senator offers to make you an officer, he can get that done. Senator Brandt would just have had to speak to the War ...

I think it was a mix between Steve wanting closure but also the show don't tell concept. Why have Steve talk about what happened when they were going to show that scene afterwards of the two of them dancing. From a filmmaking perspective it would have been redundant and the film would have been an extra 10 minutes for no reason.

Because we know who she is and it's a part of his life that is his and his alone. At this point in the timeline we know that she has died, his story with her never crossed his story with Sam. There is no purpose for him to delve into who she is because it's not a mystery. It's also respectful to her now that she has gone. You can view it as "don't kiss ...

They never were The Netflix-Marvel shows had its own world, and aside from a few movie mentions in some of the series, they were never really part of the MCU. Marvel is also reportedly planning on rebooting Daredevil In The MCU when their streaming app comes out: Cosmic Book News claims their source has told them that the studio plans to reboot ...

We don't get much of a good look of her, as we only see her briefly through a window with blinds. Nonetheless, she does seem to have some streaks of grey hair and is a little wrinkley-er. Also, she was born in 1921 (source). So in 1970, she would've been either 48 or 49. It's not implausible to me that the woman below is 48 or 49.

There is no direct dialogue in the film which addresses this, however there are several possibilities: This could have been an oversight in the film She did look different, it was just difficult to discern The character's use of make-up made it more difficult to discern her character's age The directors simply didn't have a good/viable/economical way to ...

My guess would be no, Stark and Stark Industries never came into direct contact with the Reality Stone until Avengers: Infinity War. In the MCU, the Reality Stone had been locked away for a very long time, since the war between the Asgards and the Dark Elves. It was only recently discovered due to the convergence (of realities? of realms? forget the term ...

No B.A.R.F was created by Quentin Beck before he knew the reality stone even existed. We know this because Tony uses this technology in Captain America: Civil War.

Tony’s glasses were not made of nanotech but as seen in Avengers: Endgame when fighting Thanos, his suit Basically the nanotechnology is able to grab things or in this case absorb anything that is metal and convert it into nanotechnology temporarily.

Your premise is flawed. Not because parallel universes don't exist - they're how time travel is achieved in the MCU - but because Thanos does change his plan. Specifically, at the same time that he learns about time travel and parallel universes, he learns that the Avengers are planning to use said time travel to undo his success in the original timeline. ...

Infinite resources mean infinite amount of being that want to deplete them. And because as Thanos know there are more and more beings who want to use them. So infinite resources but "eaters" is infinite plus 1 going to infinity. Borrowing through time is doing nothing because If you have two of things when you start using them and then go back to BEFORE you ...


5

Thanos did not find out about parallel universe, only about time travel. Time travel would not solve the problem of finite resources in the universe. Also stealing resources would make people in other parallel universes starve, so it would be against his motive to help some people while making other suffer.

An out-of-universe answer will be: to not show a bad example to the American spectators. To be clear, the movie came out in America and showing one of their characters drinking below the age of 21 will be a subversive way to disturb the audience. Even if it's only showing the difference between countries, you still need to be a good example for your own ...
