    What new details did you miss in the footage for Avengers Endgame that could point to a multi-year time loop in the MCU, lasting as far back as the events of Avengers Age of Ultron? What was Doctor Strange's cryptic plan when he told Tony Stark, "we're in the endgame now," and "this was the only way"? Erik Voss breaks down the evidence for this time loop theory, and how the events of Doctor Strange (2016) could have set up how the Avengers will reverse Thanos' snap in Endgame. Was Doctor Strange actually boobytrapping the Time Stone when he handed it off to Thanos in Avengers Infinity War? Will Endgame revisit the planet Xandar from Guardians of the Galaxy?

    If I'm not mistaken, Age of Ultron was the time where the avengers took turns to pull Thor's hammer, and the only one which moved was when Captain America held it. During Endgame, time travelling happens, and Thor will take past Thor's hammer, bringing it into the future. Which is where Captain America will be holding the hammer

    Talking about Banner saying his "I'm caught in a time loop", and the theory of Strange using the stone, what if the end game was the 1 win?
    But it also the has the drawback. Like, wouldn't all of them be familiar with each other? If it is a case of 'banner does remember' why only Banner?

  • Stephanie Amazigo
    Stephanie Amazigo 2 months ago +1

    that part when Banner says Im stuck in a time loop is in real time maybe a few days after Ultron was created meaning that if vision was never created there is no need for his sacrifice meaning wanda could destroy the stone at the beginning of infinity war

  • ForCryinOutLoud O'Neill
    ForCryinOutLoud O'Neill 2 months ago +1

    Doctor Strange: You'll find... removing a dead man's spell... troublesome.
    So he clearly put a spell on the time stone itself before he was dusted, and obviously the spell isn't going to be removed from the time stone with his dusting - so a loop seems the most logical spell to put on it. Maybe something along the lines of, until they figure out the correct way to actually stop Thanos, things will continue and once they figure it out, they'll all be looped back to just before the snap when they really need to stop him, memories intact, at which point Strange will close the loop.

    I don't see how a time loop would help. If time resets without them retaining the knowledge of what happened in the previous loop, then they'll just do the same over and over

    Now remember, when Thanos acquired the Soul Stone, it was glowing too. So was the Space Stone. I doubt the Time Stone glowing meant anything. Now the Xandar theory seems pretty legit.

  • Mayuresh Chavan
    Mayuresh Chavan 2 months ago

    My theory: Have you seen flash version of Savitar. Future Barry Alan. Now Thanos has all infinity stones so he can time travel. First plan fails because of absennce of Tony and Scott so Avengers had no clue how to time travel. Second plan, Avengers divided into teams in order to collect all infinity stones without causalities. They will face challenges in conquest but they will get the stones and defeat other version of Thanos (hulk may play vital part here). Just when we think that Avengers have won then time traveled Thanos will appear as a shocking moment of the film. Tony Stark will use his version of gauntlet to fight time travelled Thanos and wins. Why strange did not stop Peter Quill: Read other reply.

  • Raven Vinz Chow
    Raven Vinz Chow 2 months ago +1

    Ok, all focused on the time stone....
    If the time-loop theory is happening, I have some questions need someone to clear for me...
    1a.)how many spells/operations can the time stone execute at the same time?
    1b.)did the snap allow time stone to continue those spells casted before that? Or that will cancel all the operating spells?
    2.) I know doctor strange used the time-loop to come back to life or return to the start point to ‘defect’ dormamo, when he’s still exist on this known universe. But this time he is dusted.....wiped out from existence, does the spell he casted in no longer valuable or the spell is still working becoz it’s actually following the soul/energy signature, that his soul is somewhere in the unknown universe?

  • Darek Khort
    Darek Khort 2 months ago

    I think you are right about Xandar and past Thanos. However, I also believe that it won't be 'that easy'. I think the reason why in the latest trailer/TV spot it mentions about them having teams, and "no do-overs" is because they realise they all need to take and 'keep/defend' the stones all at the same time.
    Otherwise, 'present day' Thanos is going to find a way to get back in time (further behind than when the Avengers go), and just take the stones before the Avengers take the stones; ending up in an endless chain.

  • Adam Potter
    Adam Potter 2 months ago +1

    I believe time loops were in play during the Infinity War, and agree with much of the content in this video.
    In Infinity War, there are a few items that point to the fact that either the character was already in the scenario, or knew about the situation due to a time loop.
    1. The opening scene, look at Thor laying on the ground twiddling his fingers on his chest. He tells Thanos that he talks too much (because he has heard it all before), and Loki knows the Sun will shine down on them again. (Time Loop!)
    2. We never hear the call from Banner to Captain America. And they look surprised when they see Banner at the Avengers HQ. Here is why: Cap and his crew knew to go to Vision/Scarlet Witch due to the time loop scenario. They knew of the exact time and place to be to prevent the Children of Thanos from getting the stone.
    3. When Black Panther goes to Bucky Barnes and gives him his arm. He knows already that war is coming to Wakanda. How does he know this already? (Time Loop)
    4. Thor goes to Wakanda after receiving Storm Breaker, how does he know to go to Wakanda where the fight is taking place? No one told him to go there, and he had zero contact with anyone there. (Time Loop!)

    Anyways, I think time jumps have already taken place, and we may see it tie into End Game! Can't wait to see how the theory pans out.

    Especially since Thanos knew who tony was in Infinity War, but tony does not remember meeting Thanos, meaning the avengers probably lose. But I will not give up hope

  • Kenny Lee
    Kenny Lee 2 months ago

    One of the hints that really do support the time travel storyline is when Thanos first met Ironman on Titan in Avengers:Infinity War, and Thanos called out Stark's name. Tony asked Thanos whether he knows him and Thanks simply replied "I do". I feel this could be due to the fact that Tony WILL be traveling back in time and would have met and battled with Thanos before they meet "again" on Titan.

  • Vasa Jevremovic
    Vasa Jevremovic 2 months ago

    Interesting thought... if it's a time loop, consider in Infinity War when Thanos says that he knows who Stark is. Maybe that's b/c the film Infinity War that we watched last year was actually loop reset number n out of 14mil + 5. He's come across Tony before in previous loops and is aware of it.

      Spook 4113 Month ago

      @Garrett Stewart Well, no, because when Thanos and Tony fought on Titan, Thanos only had the power, space, reality and soul stone. So it couldn't have been the mind stone "cursing him with infinite knowledge". It could've been the soul stone though... I don't know. It was just a little theory that popped into my head when I watched the video

    This would make sense because I'm thinking when they go back they will create and entirely different time line by going back. Instead of going back and saving everyone they are gonna go back a fracture the time line and living in the one reality that saves everyone. But the will have a butterfly effect and will change the mcu the mcu forever

    Most likely the victory of avenger will be in xandar before thanos obtained power stone.. its the only part that was not shown in the infinty war movie. The rest 5 stone was seen and lost for them. This is the last one chance as Dr strange told out of 14million where one they win and now they have all their weapons including thor stormbreaker; stark latest suit; antman quantum technology, capt reunited his shield and his unstopable to be defeat thanos. Without power stone thanos is nothing with the avengers.

  • Juan Camilo Zapata
    Juan Camilo Zapata 2 months ago

    Hey Voss, there’s one little extra piece of the puzzle, at the end of age of Ultron, Thor says something odd something like “The mind stone is the 4th of the infinity stones that have showed up in the las years, is not a coincidence . Someone is playing an intricate game and has made pawns of us and when all this pieces are in position....what triple yatzee? (Tony Stark)” so for sure they are in a loop, they feel it, it’s the same reason why Hulk didn’t came out in infinity war, he knows it’s not time. They will re visit all interactions with the infinity stones and collect them for themselves. They will lose the first fight then Tony will come to realize the time loop with all these little hints left by strange. It maybe go far to manipulate Captain Marvel from being called by Fury, he clearly knows it was Thanos who snapped as he cursed him in the post credit scene
