Avengers: Endgame is going to involve a very complex plot that will pay off all the build-up that will have been done by 21 movies before Endgame. But as a matter of fact, there is still a lot of stories left to tell and before paying off every story arc in the mega finale, the Endgame will set itself up as well. Even after having seen the trailer we have not figured out many aspects of this upcoming mega-blockbuster, and there is a lot more to unravel. Thanos will be defeated this time, but we don’t know how.
Redditor Acnehommie claims that he has figured out every aspect that needs to be aligned in order for the Avengers to take down Thanos for good. His theory is based on 4 broad categories which will be united to fulfill the plot of Endgame and those include:
1. Quantum Realm
2. Iron Man’s Nanotech
3. Captain Marvel
4. Infinity Stones
Here’s how his theory about Avengers: Endgame’s plot goes:
We all know the Quantum Realm is important. It was shown in The Doctor Strange movie and Ant-Man was stuck in the Quantum Realm.
And we all sort of know Infinity War is going to be a Time Travel movie from the Avengers 4 set photos.
Since Strange sacrificed the Time Stone for Stark’s life, the only entity capable of reversing time is the Quantum Realm. That was until we got this line… (We’re in the Endgame Now)
Don’t get sucked into a Time Vortex. (Wasp)
In simple words, the Quantum Realm’s capable of time travel. It’s just nobody knows how. That’s where Tony Stark’s Nanotech comes in…”
Avengers: Endgame Till here, the Redditor seems to be stating some obvious facts, but let’s see what more he has to bring in with the Nanotech. there’s certainly some explanation required from Avengers: Endgame on the part of Nano tech, so perhaps we may get some of those details in this theory. It continues:
“Iron Man’s Nanotech
We know Stark’s new Mark 50 armor is simply awesome. His armor can now instantly change to any shape imaginable thanks to Nanotech.
That’s the type of technology the Avengers will need to study the unexplored Quantum Realm.
But there’s a problem…
Tony is nowhere to be found. Banner, Foster, and Professor Erik Selvig realize they need Stark. So, they’ll start searching for his whereabouts.
As we’ve seen from the trailer, Iron Man sends out a final ‘good bye’ message to Pepper Potts and when he thought all hope was lost — someone receives it.
I’m not sure who yet, but someone does and notifies the remaining Avengers. Cap and Black Widow use the Quinjet to go to Tony’s coordinates and save him.
That’s where we’ll get the long-awaited reunion between Cap and Iron Man everyone’s been waiting for.
So, now the Avengers find Tony, bring him back and Stark goes into his hardcore ‘work’ mode with Banner, Erik Selvig and Bill Foster trying to find a solution from the Quantum Realm.
They find one.
But there’s another problem. They can only access alternate universes from the multiverse, but not the current universe the Infinity snap occurred on.
They need to somehow temporarily bridge the universes together, so they can transfer their progress to this universe.
That’s where Captain Marvel comes in…”
This may be a cool reunion for Tony and Cap, but the Redditor cannot BE any more wrong here. The message recorded by Tony is not being sent anywhere, it is just a final goodbye in case someone finds him. No one is going to receive the message as it doesn’t make any sense for Tony’s suit to be able to send an intergalactic message. But the way the Benatar will be contacted here is through Rocket. He will probably be able to track the Guardians’ ship somehow, and Pepper may bring in her Rescue armor to save Tony.
Let’s see what the Redditor has to say about Captain Marvel:
“Captain Marvel’s Role
Does anyone remember how Time Travel worked in the Interstellar film? If you don’t, here’s a refresher.
The future Cooper somehow helps the present Cooper solve Earth’s problem through time travel.
That’s probably what’ll happen in Captain Marvel. The future Ant-Man travels back to 1995 to warn Nick Fury and Captain Marvel about the present situation and Quantum problem.
So, Captain Marvel travels the cosmos for 20 years, trying to find an answer to bridging alternate universes together. She eventually finds one.
That’s why Marvel suddenly set Captain Marvel in 1995. It’ll explain two things:
1. Captain Marvel’s 20-year disappearance
2. Nick Fury’s lack of surprise and last-second decision to contact her
Which leads us to the final showdown…”
Ant-Man as we saw in the Avengers: Endgame trailer doesn’t land in the past. He is in the present trying to getting buzzed into the Avengers facility. So this is merely just a theory. But it poses a great thought at the end bringing in an Infinity War 2.0. It Continues:
“The REAL Infinity War
Avengers 4 is the real Infinity War. Think about it. How can you have an Infinity War when only one side has all the Infinity Stones?
You can’t and Doctor Strange realized this. That’s why he gave away the Time Stone (the only stone capable of reversing time) — Strange knew the Avengers wouldn’t need it.
Instead, the Avengers will be using the Quantum Realm and the Multiverse to go back in time, reassemble the Avengers and Infinity Stones.
Captain Marvel then bridges the alternate universes together, so they can escape for one last, head-on battle with Thanos. But in the process, they create a bigger and more powerful villain than Thanos.
After all, Avengers: Endgame is the concluding film that will open up Phase 4. What better way to conclude than opening up an alternate reality?”
The Redditor seems to have put in a lot of thought trying to make an alternate reality happen, but if that ends up being the case, then we would be losing a whole lot of what the MCU has built till now. Phase 4 has to start on a new leaf but erasing all that happened in the past isn’t the right way. So, the least I could say is that this theory falls apart on its own. But still, good attempt!
Avengers: Endgame comes out on April 26.
