Avengers: Endgame Theory –
Avengers: Infinity War marked the arrival of Thanos into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie acted as an anchor for the stage the villain to enter this iteration of the Marvel universe to begin the end of the decade-long series arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The wrath of Thanos was unparalleled, the death and destruction wrought by him unto the earth’s mightiest heroes was nothing short of pure carnage. It was truly horrific what we witnessed at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. The snap of Thanos’ fingers utilising all of the six known infinity stones devasted entirety of creation to its core. The mere idea of this genocide was earth breaking but the actual execution of it baffled our little minds.
The Titan actually did it. He acted on his misguided and half baked motivations of ‘balancing life’ and eradicated half of all life in existence. The entire population cried out in horror as their loved ones disappeared into nothingness. Some were shocked and devasted, others like Hawkeye lost their minds and took up other destructive measures (like fighting the Yakuza with swords in the middle of Japan for no apparent reason).
But the question remains, even after the premiere of Avengers: Endgame trailer, how will the remnant of Avengers begin to correct the situation that the tyrant of the dark quadrant has created in his frenzy. How will the heroes ‘save’ the universe from a force such as this?
This powerful mad creature with the power of reality at his fingertips. How will we redeem ourselves from it? Especially when the earth’s mightiest heroes are dissipated, and not just across the earth but across the wide spectrum of our known universe.
If you don’t know what I am talking about then I suggest that you take a look at the Avengers: Endgame trailer once more. The trailer begins with, what we at QuirkyByte had predicted a long time ago. It begins with the sad truth that Iron Man is stranded in space without any semblance of rescue whatsoever.
And with Hank Pym dusted and Erik Selvig MIA, the earth cannot wage a war against the Mad Titan (powered with the infinity stones) without a hyper-intelligent scientist on their side. I mean, if not Stark then who will forge the Startek Gauntlet that harnesses the power of infinity stones collected from the past. But that is all just part of Fan theories.
More importantly, the immediate concern of the Avengers come Avengers: Endgame should be to rescue Tony Stark rather than defeating Thanos. Stark’s prior knowledge and impeccable scientific mind will be imperative in winning this fight. But how will this man escape the clutches of space when he is riding a semi-destroyed Milano with no food, no water, and barely any oxygen.
Well, the prevailing theory is that the super powered heroine named Captain Marvel will be his salvation. What, you say? Why and how will Carol Danvers know to save Tony Stark, you ask? Well, I have a theory just for you.
Imagine this, (although this theory is subject to change as per the ending of Captain Marvel) Carol Danvers is either patrolling deep space or managing the remnants of Skrulls and the Kree and preventing any more infighting when she receives the page from Nick Fury.
The paging signal could not have come at a more opportune moment because she just saw a couple of her enemies dissipate in front of her. Understanding the severity of the situation Carol wraps up the stragglers in the combat zone and sets out for the earth. During this long journey, she comes across a ship adrift in space housing a very peculiar looking Terran.
She is struck by curiosity and being the kind hero that she is she decides to rescue this Terran who seems to be on the brink of death. Who is this Terran? Well, it is none other than Tony Stark himself, but Carol doesn’t know that and of course, Tony has no clue he has been saved, he is still passed out. Carol brings him to earth and Tony becomes the bridge between Carol and the other Avengers. Or rather Carol becomes his crutch at a time where he has lost all of his former allies (that he did not alienate during the events of Civil War) to the might of the Mad Titan.
