  • Published on May 6, 2019
  • Avengers Endgame Final Scene Explained! What did Cap do in his final time travel mission to return the Infinity Stones? What changes did Avengers Endgame make to the MCU Timeline? Erik Voss explains the Endgame ending, why Cap appears as an old man, and why Cap gave Falcon his shield - not Bucky. How many new branch timelines were created in the events of Avengers Endgame?

    Erik here! Our trailer breakdown for Spider-Man Far From Home is in the pipeline and should be released in the next couple days! Our process takes time, and we don't want to rush out a crappy video just to say we're "first." Thank you for your patience!

      Not exactly you we see antman running test runs and he turned old and a baby but it seems it didn’t have any affect on the timeline but perhaps that’s what cal did he stayed there too long and got old when he came back but he what he did do was took the sheild so maybe him taking the shield me did something. The far from home trailer explained about multiverse portal opened so there you go.

    ENDGAME was trash for so many reasons. The worst: formulating this idea that Steve Rogers would sit on his ass for 70 years and not once try to prevent Hydra from taking over SHIELD is implausible character assassination.

    the whole point is he couldn't make any changes. If he made any changes he would have created a branch universe by knowing the effects of the future, spinning it off from the main timeline, which wouldn't have actually stopped anything happening because it still would have happened in another timeline. The only way to minimise the branching would have been to cause as few changes as possible.
    If it's already been written he couldn't change it. It's that simple, so he lived a full life and waited until time caught up.
    basically, DONT BLAME CAP FOR 9.11!

  • Arnab Paul Joy

    so, the time branch in which Cap is dancing with Peggy, shouldn't that time line contains another Cap who's sleeping in the ice? there might be 2 Caps in that timeline, i think. don't you people think that it's messed up???

  • Trey Gavino

    I thought he used the time stone when he came back to his time line off screen to possibly rewind his point in time so he could enjoy his time in the pass so he and live in secret trying to to alter anything that he has knowledge about
    Note we barely saw the time stone's full power we only saw a reset loop and 2 rewinds.

    I think how captain bring the infinity stones is meet the ancient one first to give the time stone, then ancient one help captain to restore another stone with time stone of agamoto. Remember the apple in doctor strange, its change the rotten apple to fresh apple. So the space stone back to tesseract, so yeah it same for the other infinity stones
    I mean its possible

    This video might be digging a bit too deep with the maybes. I figured he just stuck around during his time when he was still on ice and laid low to enjoy the life he lost and just came back after his 70 year mission to finish the job, now a couple decades older.

    • Jason Shores
      Jason Shores 3 days ago

      Diyanira TBM-Gaming this whole movie is impossible anyways based on rudimentary time theory. If we use the same rules for time travel as Cap did at the end; then when past (2014) thanos was killed then infinity war wouldn’t have happened and this timeline would have been obliterated based on a cosmic imbalance of thanos not being where he needed to be during a critical moment in the timeline, much like how it was explained that the infinity stones needed to be in their proper place in time

    maybe if thanos did not exist tony stark in 2015 wouldnt have had the feeling of a protective shield around the world and that would have caused ultron and vision never being created which would have resulted in civil war never happening because that guy"s family never died (sorry I forgot his name)

    technically, young cap and old cap were in the same earth when he went back, hed screw up the mc timeline if he went back and never crashed the airplane in the ocean ( which is also an important event in the universe cause this kinda led to the avengers) . he kept himself hidden so no he didnt screw anything up.

  • Josh Blount
    Josh Blount 9 days ago

    It was obvious once you saw him sitting on the bench. He put every infinity stone back into place, including Mjolnir, dropping off the tesseract last. Then, he just stayed at that point in time. Lived a normal life with Sharon after that point while his past self remained in the glacier to be found decades later. This way, he wasn't doing anything to change his past and thus create a separate timeline. A well deserved retirement. With any luck, he had some kids that maybe, just maybe, inherit some of that super soldier serum for Phase 4 of the Avengers.

  • Alexander Family

    If Hank Pym was actually mad at Tony's dad thinking he stole his pym particles & his research while it was actually Cap, then that would mean Antman was in a whole different timeline and branch reality, meaning the same thing with Antman 2 and all the others movie after Antman

  • Jerry McCalister

    Many scientists on the web have weighed in on the nonsense with the time travel scenario that the Russo brothers used for End Game. Real Quantum Mechanics and what was theorized using the Quantum Realm have nothing to do with one-another. This piece was a pure piece of Sci-Fi and has no bearing on real world potential. One thing that can be agreed on however is that in all probability Time is linear so chances are if you go back in time and kill your father before you are conceived, you will not be born. Different realms are pure nonsense so in reality the outcomes from Back to the Future and Time Cop are much closer to reality than End Game was. Sorry for anyone that thinks otherwise but you can't have your cake and eat it to.

    Where it never happened. So Tony would still be alive.

  • Jessie Jones
    Jessie Jones 10 days ago

    It’s quite simple. Cap set it up so he never went into the ice. Let’s not forget, the super soldier serum doesn’t mean that he doesn’t age at all, it means that he ages slower, but still ages. Him being frozen in the ice put him in a state of suspended animation. We’re talking about 70 years he slept. So if he never went into the ice, then he would age at his normal pace, or what was normal for a super soldier anyway. So once the timeline emerges, you have him sitting on the bench, having a history including, but not limited to, never getting frozen, and having that dance with Peggy.

    I would prefer the civil war branch without Thanos BUT it’s also kind of scary bc if you think about it IF marvel rewrote and said that Thanos never existed, those contracts would still have to end so the avengers would probably end up killing each other, break up, or find the ultimate villain (again) and die..

    • Kay Zihle
      Kay Zihle 10 days ago

      Because technically he was dead? You don't age in death... kind of like when Cap was frozen - he didn't age but he did age when he went back and lived his life. Death "froze" them & now that they're back they'll age again (as usual)

    I think cap did something to Tony before he was even ironman. When Tony was going to the presentation, cap could have saved him from that moment causing Tony to never have the arc reactor nor creating the mark 1. Therefore Tony could still be alive, but not ironman. But if he was alive has tony, thanos would have won the battle on earth
