    Apart from other branching timelines, So the actual chain of events following Thanos' snap is like a loop or predestination, things will keep happening like that? He will snap, they'll go and take the stones back, he'll come to the future again to be defeated AGAIN? 😐

    Captain America in the main timeline is unaffected... there’s a separate timeline of he and Peggy’s life. And how do we know it was 1940s Peggy vs 1970 Peggy?

    Lol "sorry, no refunds". Returning the soul stone is one of the biggest loose ends I wished there was an explanation for. Also, in the current timeline, the infinity stones done exist anymore since Thanos' second snap snapped them out of existence, are they really destroyed since someone can just go back and get them? The avengers only returned them because of the danger of having them all in one place at one time, but some more sinister villain would not mind bringing it back. Also, Thanos apparently succeeds in snapping in 99999999 since Dr strange only saw one instance where the avengers suceed but since all the hiccups made back in time, there are now 4~5 realities where thanos may not have successfully snapped and therefore possibly the stones still exist past the second snap on one or more of the parallel multiverses.

    At the very end of Endgame - when Hulk, Falcon and Winter Soldier are sending Captain America back in time; you can spot a helicopter in the background carrying off a CRATE. There's a crane in the image as well and it looks like the helicopter is apart of the clean up operation however it's carrying a crate - not debris. This is placement. There is meaning behind this. It wouldn't be there if there wasn't significance behind it. What could possibly be stored in the crate that would need to be wisked off? I'm pretty sure this is a lead into a future plotline.

  • Leopoldo Azpurua
    Leopoldo Azpurua Month ago

    The stones had to be returned to the place where it was taken if they leave their timeline because they balance the universe, since the space stone never left the timeline because it was taken by Loki, no bad ripple (don't remember if thats the name) was created. The biggest doubt i have is how did Captain America give back the soul stone.

    How did the old cap come back. There is no evidence that he came back from the time machine. And there is no chance that he just aged up and waited at the scene of time travel since he was in a different reality that the original one.

    I have been meaning to ask ,so was *this* that one outcome ,in which they win ,I mean come on ,the final battle would not even have taken place and Tony would not have died if they didn't take Nebula with them in the past , couldn't Doctor Strange just have said to Tony that "don't take Nebula back" (he must have known about this right?) ,like as a cryptic last message ,that Tony would only remember when the Avengers actually attempt time travel

    Why would Cap need to return the Stones to the Time of Avengers 1 (2012) and the one of Guardians1? (2014)?Both times are Cronenberged anyway. 2012 is messed up as Loki has the Tesseract. 2014 is messed up even harder with Thanos and all his Troops including Gamora and Nebula Missing. Why would Red Skull need his Soul Stone back? Why Starlord? All the Events of Guardians1 will not Be set of. Maybe return the Time Stone so Doctor Strange can fight Dormammu later. But the definitely could have kept Space and Soulstone

    I think the only error is when you say, "The main timeline has now been changed so that the world saw a 20th century with Steve Rogers not him vanishing in ice." But it seems that Cap America was still frozen in ice and that the one from the future just laid low so as to not affect the main time line which means he had been there the whole time!
