Avengers: Endgame Moments Impact Future Movies:
After a long-running storyline, Avengers: Endgame finale gave a satisfactory end to the first phases of MCU. It not only saved everyone and killed the big bad Thanos, but also allowed the mighty heroes to retire and added moments that would change the direction Marvel Cinematic Universe. It opened the gates for young faces and promoted the current heroes with great potentials. Though we are still not completely over our old Avengers; Captain America, Black Widow, and Iron Man, MCU ensured that we got complete closure in the final chapter. Let us recall the first steps taken by MCU to move on to the next phase.
1. New Leader For New Asgard
After Asgard was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok, the Asgardians were brought on Earth and a new Asgard was created on our planet. But in Endgame, we see their leader and God of Thunder, Thor, step down from his position and pass over the throne to Valkyrie. We are going to get an unprecedented story as Thor joins the Guardians of the Galaxy and Valkyrie becomes the new leader of Asgard.
2. New Captain America
Captain America’s retirement and his getting to spend his life with Peggy Carter was one of the biggest surprises of Avengers: Endgame. Until then, no one knew about Captain’s fate. But a bigger bombshell was dropped by Steve Rogers when he passed on his shield to Sam Wilson indicating that the latter would be the next Captain America. It was unexpected for fans on many levels as they were hoping for Cap’s best friend Bucky to carry on the mantle. Now that Cap has left Bucky & Sam by themselves, we’ll see what become of them in the upcoming Disney + series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
3. Loki Creating New Timeline
Time travel is a dangerous game where every step must be taken carefully, for an uncalculated step can create new timelines. Loki’s death in Infinity War came not only as a shock to us but it was unbelievable as he faked his death many times. But this death in the hands of Thanos was real. We did see him again in Endgame during time traveling in New York though that was the past and an evil version of Thor’s brother. This Loki changed his fate by escaping with the scepter. It created a new timeline of Loki that we’ll get to watch in his upcoming series on Disney +.
4. New Members Introduced
There have been several theories on New Avengers after a grownup up Cassie Lang, Ant-man’s daughter, and Lila Barton, Hawkeye’s daughter appeared in the movie. And their curiosity, support, and interest in their father’s work so far have only cemented that theory. To top it all, the cameo of Harley Keener in Endgame, the boy whom Tony Stark met in Iron Man 3, raised the speculation of a new Iron Man.
5. New Gamora
Avengers: Endgame may have answered the previous questions and saved the world. But it also raised some new questions and speculations. Unlike other heroes, Gamora died in the Infinity War before the snap, thus killing all hopes of her return. But the time travel in Endgame created new timelines and revived the dead characters like Gamora. But her return is doubtful good news as she is not the Gamora who had a history with the Guardians of the Galaxy. A younger version of Gamora has traveled from the past to the present day. She is the only hero whose fate is unknown to us after the Endgame. We do know that she is alive, but no one knows where she went next and if she’ll ever join the Guardians of the Galaxy.
6. No More Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man was the face of MCU Avengers. His death as he sacrificed his life to save the world meant an end of an era. We can’t think of an Avengers team without Tony Stark. He formed a team of mighty heroes and brought life to it. And by letting him go, MCU has ripped off the band-aid and is ready for a new phase. It has also raised many questions on who will carry forward his legacy. Will, there be a new Iron Man to carry the mantle or a new Superhero will become the face of MCU.
