Not everybody who loves the Marvel Cinematic Universe thinks that Avengers: Endgame is an ideal film, as a lot because it exceeded all expectations in field workplace totals. The greatest issues nonetheless happen in fan opinion of the time-travel heist and what number of plot holes exist therein.
No one can do time-travel just like the Russos tried with out having just a few issues not fairly stand as much as scrutiny. While some nonetheless argue time-travel guidelines set forth in Endgame made sense for the Marvel universe, others assume it created further and unnecessary confusion.
Who is absolutely proper right here? The place to start out is with fan opinion on social media the place attempting to determine the time-travel issues is like dissecting a sophisticated physics equation.
What was the unique intention of the MCU time-travel guidelines?
As somebody reminded in a thread on Reddit just lately, the Russos initially meant to have all time-travel not have an effect on the current or the longer term. The plot gap is Captain America going again to the previous and altering the current and future timeline, or the official model of the latter.
In some minds, this refrains from retaining the time-travel guidelines constant because the Russos promised. On the opposite hand, it additionally connects with their concept that journey to the previous additionally creates various timelines.
Are each taking place without delay, or was there actually a constant timeline happening after the time-travel heist occurred? Based on some additional explanations, Steve Rogers may need completed barely extra time-travel to meet up with the current time when on the well-known park bench.
All of that is defined by way of slightly logic: No means might Steve/Cap be the age he’s if he stayed in the principle timeline from the 1940s onward.
The age of Steve Rogers/Cap is off the charts

Radio Times went to the difficulty final yr to calculate how outdated Steve actually is on the finish of Endgame. Some contend he could be 117 on the level the place he exhibits up in 2023. Another calculation would have him technically older (183 to be precise) if going by how lengthy he was within the 2010s after being resurrected out of the ice, then residing out his life beginning again within the ’40s.
All of this means Steve did slightly extra time-traveling past merely residing out his life in linear time. The thought is he lived linearly with Peggy Carter up till the time she died. Then he jumped forward to 2023, if not already leaping forward earlier.
More realistically, he would have needed to do one thing to delay his time with Peggy since he possible wouldn’t reside past 100. Well, until the Super Soldier Serum Cap took made him reside longer than the typical individual.
Much of this can be a thriller, and possibly defined later. If so, it makes the time-travel guidelines the Russos utilized have two divergent timelines.
The multiverse will widen all time-travel ideas
From all indications, the time-travel seen in Endgame won’t be its final use. Through the brand new Disney+ sequence, Loki, audiences can have an opportunity to see the title character time-traveling to key occasions.
Also, the multiverse will now be tapped, creating situations the place quite a few alternate universes play out. Upcoming sequence What If…? delves deep into this area of interest, if being an animated sequence.
Perhaps the whiteboard the Russos used to map out their total time-travel saga continues to be a bit incomplete. No doubt followers solely noticed one-half of what comes later, not together with Doctor Strange’s proclamation of seeing 14,000,605 futures.
By merely introducing the multiverse, any sort of time-travel plot gap may be simply defined away as a go to to the previous creating a brand new timeline. Cap, although, was a lone exception and stayed with primary time-travel theories most physicists and the general public can perceive in primary phrases.
