We finally have the answer to the question we’ve been asking ever since the Hulk Blipped everyone back to existence. Avengers: Endgame & Spider-Man: Far From Home revealed that everyone that was blipped back to existence after 5 years appeared at the same spot they were dusted from. But logically, the decimation event would have taken people out from different places throughout the Universe. People could have been disintegrated from planes, ships, submarines, spaceships, and so many other inconvenient places. So, did they come back just to die?
Imagine the Hulk bringing everyone back to the places where people were taken from – all of a sudden, they wake up from their 5-year sleep and end up underwater, midair on roads, or even in deep space. So many people would have fallen from the skies if that were to be the case. Did they all die? Kevin Feige finally has the answer to this question:
“If people were in an airplane when they were dusted, they didn’t return at 35,000 feet. They didn’t fall to their deaths because Smart Hulk is smart, and when he snapped… You can wish for whatever you want and you can wish for everyone to come back safely. Done.”
Now, this is a very precise and obviously the correct answer. Smart Hulk also tried to bring Natasha Back, but that death was permanent. So if he could think about the safe return of Natasha to 2023, then he could also think about the safe return of the rest of the people throughout the Universe. Hence, the problem was solved just by a snap of fingers!
Even the director of Spider-Man: Far From Home had a similar opinion on Hulk’s blip. He assumed that Hulk would have brought everyone back safely. All those who would have reappeared at convenient places, while those who would have face inconvenience would have come somewhere safer. He told HuffPost:
“What would happen to people in motion, if you’re in a car or in an airplane? Obviously, they didn’t blip back in the middle of the sky and fall to the Earth because so many people would die. There are so many questions, but we just stuck with the ones that made sense in our story.”
For such technicalities, Watts jokingly suggested that
“I was like, you know what, I’m not going to touch that one.” He continued:
“That’s the thing. Everyone arrived back safely somehow. I don’t think suddenly people were raptured back to Earth and plummeted into the ocean. That would not be the happy ending that [Tony Stark] was planning.”
The Snap & the blip turned out to be the two finale events that the entire Infinity Saga were building towards. There were so many things that the director and Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely took into consideration with regards to the whole Snap situation. He said:
“There are so many ideas we had. I was talking to [Markus and McFeely] about twins. We were talking about what would happen if one twin blipped out. It’d still be twins, but one of them would be five years older, which would be really strange.
Thanos said all living entities, all living beings, half of all of them, so does that include bacteria? Did half of the stomach bacteria inside of you disappear and people get really sick?”
At the end of the day, this was a comic book movie because people can’t just snap out of existence and then suddenly reappear. Marvel should be given credit for what they managed to achieve with a concept so over-bloated. We should also let go of this blip situation and the logic behind it now because Kevin Feige has already solved the problem.
