Did You Know?

Trivia

Marvel writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently explained how they chose who got to live and die in Endgame, and that's also the place where they said they kept Steve's fate a mystery on purpose. However, we have all the right answers for you, and it comes straight from Marvel. The revelation came at the end of the same Vanity Fair interview where the writers explained the reasoning behind the plot choices of Endgame: [Vanity Fair:] There were so many questions about the timeline and where Captain America lives with Peggy Carter, whether that's an alternate timeline, whether he's in our timeline. Is it good that people are still asking that, or do you feel like audiences are missing the obvious? McFeely: Oh, it's great! Markus: Yeah, that's fine. Those are unsatisfied questions. Those are intrigued questions. I'm delighted at people still chewing over this thing. You know, if it's, That's stupid and I don't like it and I'm talking about it because it was dumb, that's one thing. But if it's, I honestly don't know, and it's kind of cool to think about, that's great. the writers previously stated that, in their view, Steve aged in the main MCU timeline. they told Fandango back in early May: Fandango: So people are asking Does this mean an old Captain America was hanging out this whole time while another Captain America was saving the day? Christopher Markus: That is our theory. We are not experts on time travel, but the Ancient One specifically states that when you take an Infinity Stone out of a timeline, it creates a new timeline. So Steve going back and just being there would not create a new timeline. So I reject the "Steve is in an alternate reality" theory. I do believe that there is simply a period in world history from about '48 to now where there are two Steve Rogers. And anyway, for a large chunk of that one of them is frozen in ice. So it's not like they'd be running into each other. Right around the same time, Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo said in a different interview in China that Cap created his own timeline at the end of the film: QQ: Did Captain America's action at the end affect the timeline? Does that mean there was a time where two CA existed in a same universe? Anthony Russo: To me, CA's action in the end wasn't the fact he wanted to change anything, it's more like me has made a choice. He chose to go back to past and lived with the one he loved for the rest of his life. The time travel in this movie created an alternate reality. He lived a completely different life in that world. We don't know how exactly his life turned out, but I'd like to believe he still helped many others when they were needed in that world. Yes, there were two CA in that reality, it's just like what Hulk said, what happened in the past has already happened. If you go back to past, you simply created a new reality. The characters in this movie created new timeline when they went back to the past, but it had no effect to the prime universe. What happened in the past 22 movies was still canon. That's something Marvel reiterated down the road. Steve created a different timeline and that's where he spent his days until returning to the main MCU reality to bring that brand new Captain America shield to Sam -- from our previous coverage: "The way that it would work is that when Captain America goes back, he would create a branch reality," Joe [Russo] explained. "Now he would exist in that branch reality with a second Captain America who was frozen in ice." "Peggy understood that he was dead at that point in the storytelling because Cap went back to a point in time where nobody knew he still was alive, frozen in ice," Anthony [Russo] added. Since Disney+ launched, plenty of Endgame deleted scenes that helped fans understand the contradiction between the writers and directors when it comes to Steve's fate. It turns out a different version of the plot may have contained elements that would have made the writers' vision possible. In a deleted scene with Hulk and The Ancient One, we learn that simply returning the Infinity Stones to their rightful place is enough to clip all the other branches, and have all the other events fall back into the main timeline. In such a scenario, Steve would get to spend his life in the past of the main MCU timeline. But Marvel cut that scene and modified the script, so that's no longer the case. See more »

Rhodes lists several time travel themed movies in which someone changes the past and thereby changes the future. However, he mentions four movies that go against his argument:

  • He mentions Star Trek, whose time travel theory is actually very similar to this movie. When Spock Prime traveled to the past, all the changes made did nothing to affect his own timeline, however he still sought to make sure that the newly created timeline remained somewhat similar to his own.

A horribly, boring and goofy installment. Worst one yet.
15 August 2019 | by chi_town_fedSee all my reviews

This was a terrible film. I rented it and feel like I wasted my money. The movie is 3 hours long. 2 of those hours is just nonsense and jabber. Then you get about thirty minutes of the big fight, followed by another thirty minutes of boredom. The male heroes are portrayed as buffoons, which is indicative of today's masculine-man-hating society.

This was one of the worst Avengers installment ever. Writers are so busy pushing their masculine-man-hating agenda by making the two most powerful Avengers (Thor and Hulk) buffoons, they failed to capture the essence of the Avengers. If the Hulk and Thor are not smashing something or someone that is extremely powerful, Marvel isn't worth watching IMHO. They are the ultimate warriors. Yet in this installment, they are childish buffoons. The PC man-hating writers of today have devolved the franchise into an Everybody Loves Raymond-esque sitcom. However, Everybody Loves Raymond is better written.
