22. What Did Cap Do With Mjolnir?
Cap took Thor’s hammer with him again in time. Presumably, he returned it to Asgard in 2013 together with the Aether, however the place in Asgard did he return it to? Even Thor did not know the place the hammer was when he summoned it (and it took some time to reach in his hand).
21. How Did Cap Return The Aether?
One other query is how Cap truly returned the Aether. As Thor made clear, it isn’t technically a stone, it is a sludge-like entity that Rocket pulled out of an unsuspecting Jane Foster‘s physique (and we had been by no means proven how Rocket achieved this). Did Cap someway re-inject the Aether into Jane?
20. What Occurred When Cap Tried To Return The Soul Stone And Noticed Pink Cranium?
To return the Soul Stone, Cap would possible should encounter the Pink Cranium, which might be the primary time they’ve seen one another since 1945.

So how did Cap return the Soul Stone and did he attempt to do something to deliver Nat again?
19. The place Did Cap Get The Defend He Gave To Falcon?
Outdated Man Steve passes the Captain America mantle to Sam Wilson however the place did the protect come from once we noticed it smashed by Thanos? It might be a completely new protect, maybe from the alternate timeline, however that also means there is a Captain America strolling round with out it.
18. Did Steve Rogers Actually By no means Go Into Motion As Captain America Once more?
It is not solely clear whether or not Outdated Man Cap got here from an alternate timeline or from the previous of the primary MCU timeline, however it’s inferred that Steve and Peggy lived fortunately collectively. However did Steve actually by no means really feel the necessity to return into motion? In spite of everything, Peggy was one of many heads of S.H.I.E.L.D. – who Cap knew had been infiltrated by Hydra – so it is laborious to think about Steve did not become involved in MCU occasions, even clandestinely.
17. Does Sharon Carter Ever Discover Out That Steve Went Again To Be With Peggy?
It was by no means confirmed both method if Sharon Carter was a sufferer of Thanos’ snap, however regardless, Sharon and Steve had been on the cusp of a relationship in Captain America: Civil War.

16. So Half The Universe Returned To Life 5 Years Later However At The Similar Ages They Have been When They Died?
Hulk’s Infinity Gauntlet snap restored the half of all life within the universe Thanos killed in Avengers: Infinity War however all of them return to existence in a world 5 years after they died. This wasn’t handled explicitly in Avengers: Endgame however it’s probably the most intriguing facets of the MCU going ahead: half of all life within the universe is now 5 years older than the opposite half. The five-year hole would possible wreak havoc with households, colleges, companies, politics, and each facet of life.
Avengers: Endgame skirted this problem in its epilogue.

As it is a sequel, that means Peter and his complete group of associates had been snapped out of existence and restored by the Hulk.

Captain Marvel revealed that Nick Fury’s unique title of his proposed group of exceptional folks to battle the battles he by no means might was “The Protectors”, however that the superspy modified it to “The Avengers” after he discovered Carol Danvers’ USAF callsign was “Avenger”.

Was she honored? And the way did the heroes who’d emerged since her departure take it?
14. Will Thor Ever Get Again Into Form?
Thor drank gallons of beer for 5 years and was off form in Avengers: Endgame. Many followers anticipated Thor to magically be reworked again into his muscular self when he known as down his lightning earlier than combating Thanos however that did not occur. Ultimately, Thor jetted off into area with the Guardians of the Galaxy however he is nonetheless in slovenly form. Will Thor ever get again to his outdated combating trim?
Thor forming the “Asgardians of the Galaxy” did have a touch of irony: in Avengers: Infinity Conflict, the Guardians made enjoyable of Star-Lord for seemingly gaining weight earlier than they met Thor, the “pirate angel” who impressed Drax a lot. However now it is Thor who’s off form as he takes his place aboard the Benatar.
13. The place Did Loki Go With The Tesseract?
An enormous wrinkle within the MCU timeline in Avengers: Endgame was created when Loki escaped 2012 New York with the Tesseract. Loki was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity Conflict, who then promised “no resurrections”, so it looks like that model of Loki is certainly useless. Nonetheless, the 2012 Loki stays a scheming villain who by no means posed as Odin to rule Asgard and by no means settled his points with Thor, and there isn’t any indication the place the God of Mischief disappeared to. These questions will possible be answered in Loki’s upcoming Disney+ series, however Loki free with the House Stone is unquestionably a harmful proposition.

It wasn’t clear that Wong even met Carol Danvers and Physician Unusual undoubtedly did not.
11. Have been The Sokovia Accords Ever Rescinded?
The Sokovia Accords haven’t been formally handled within the MCU. The superhero laws was an inciting incident for Marvel Phase 3 and was the reason for the Avengers’ Civil Conflict. Have been the Accords rescinded in the course of the five-year span when the world’s governments had been in shambles? In spite of everything, Steve Rogers was main assist teams and transferring round in public so it looks like the Avengers had been now not fugitives. However what about now that everybody is alive once more? It was by no means clear whether or not Secretary Ross was killed by Thanos’ snap and, whereas he was current at Tony Stark’s funeral, that does not essentially get rid of his laws.
10. What Occurred To 2014 Gamora?
The destiny of 2014 Gamora, who turned towards Thanos and joined with 2023 Nebula to kill the 2014 model of Nebula, can also be not clear. The final time Gamora was seen was within the A-Pressure feminine Avengers crew up sequence; within the aftermath of Tony Stark’s Infinity Gauntlet snap, Gamora disappeared. It is attainable that she was among the many aliens dusted together with Thanos, however that does not fairly synch with the arrange for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with Star-Lord trying to find Gamora. But when Gamora is alive, how did she escape Earth? All of Thanos’ spaceships had been dusted by Tony’s snap and the Guardians took again the Benatar. If Nebula is aware of the solutions, she is not sharing them.
9. Why Was 2012 Hulk Performing Like Thor: Ragnarok Hulk?
The Hulk was performing surprisingly within the aftermath of Loki’s defeat in The Avengers.

Within the third Thor movie, Hulk’s intelligence had grown to change into extra like a toddler’s after remaining as Hulk for two years on Sakaar. However he should not even be that good in 2012; he was a raging savage who stalked and tried to homicide Black Widow on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier earlier in that movie. And in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hulk was nonetheless a senseless brute who did not speak and needed to be calmed into turning into Banner once more by a lullaby. The portrayal of 2012 Hulk in Avengers: Endgame does not actually make sense.
8. How Did Thanos’ Spaceship Have Sufficient Pym Particles To Time Journey To The Future?
After 2014 Nebula tortured her future self, she eliminated and swapped the crimson plates on her head to modify locations and return to 2023 with the remainder of the Avengers. Previous to that, she knelt earlier than Thanos and supplied him the vial of Pym Particles she took from future Nebula. However how did Thanos use these Pym Particles? A giant deal was made that the Avengers solely had sufficient Particles for one spherical journey and 2014 Nebula arrived sooner or later with the Avengers so she used hers. So how did Thanos then have sufficient to shrink his complete spaceship to make the journey through the Quantum Realm via the Avengers’ time portal into 2023? Maybe he developed his personal from the tech, however that is not said.
7. How Many (If Any) Alternate Timelines Have been Made In Avengers: Endgame?
Avengers: Endgame‘s use of time journey is somewhat unclear, with it steered that the heroes can and might’t change the previous at completely different factors. It is implied by the ending that Steve Rogers returned the Infinity Stones to their rightful place and so all the things was constant (which means he at all times lived prior to now), though that also leaves some occasions unexplained. Because the Infinity Stones are necessary for this (per the Historical One), Loki taking the Tesseract possible modified issues. And, clearly, there’s Thanos, who comes from 2014 and is killed sooner or later, whereas Nebula kills her previous self with out impression; this might recommend that an alternate timeline, though his disappearance care of Tony might have reverted all the things again to regular.
6. The place Did Valkyrie’s Winged Horse Come From?

Then Thanos worn out half of the Asgardians when he took the House Stone. There have been additionally none sighted on New Asgard in Avengers: Endgame, so it is unknown how Valkyrie all of the sudden had a winged steed to trip into battle.
5. Why Was Harley At Iron Man’s Funeral?
Tony Stark’s lakeside funeral was well-attended by his fellow Avengers and his household however one character who was standing alone behind Scarlet Witch, Falcon, and Bucky wasn’t instantly recognizable and confused many followers. This lone mourner was Harley, the boy from Tennessee Tony befriended in Iron Man 3. Actor Ty Simpkins returned to painting Harley however the character is now ten years older than he was in Iron Man 3 so it is comprehensible followers did not register who he was. In-universe, although, the query of why he – and no different individual Tony interacted with over the previous decade-and-a-half – turned up is a bit complicated.
4. The place Was Katherine Langford’s Rumored Character?
In October 2018, 13 Reasons Why actor Katherine Langford was reported to have been cast in Avengers: Endgame, so many had been confused when she was nowhere to be discovered within the film. It was by no means introduced who Langford was speculated to play – hypothesis pegged her to possible painting the grown model of Tony’s daughter Morgan Stark or presumably Kate Bishop, the longer term second Hawkeye (who’s now anticipated to headline the introduced Hawkeye Disney+ series). Nonetheless, Langford was undoubtedly MIA in Avengers: Endgame and Marvel have not given followers even one cause why.
3. How Will Physician Unusual Defend Earth With out The Time Stone?
Because the Historical One warned the Hulk in 2012, the destruction of the Time Stone leaves the Masters of the Mystic Arts with out their biggest weapon, the Eye of Agamotto, and susceptible to be overrun by magical threats. The Historical One finally trusted Physician Unusual’s determination to give up the Time Stone to Thanos in Avengers: Infinity Conflict and the elimination of the Infinity Stones appears to be a part of Physician Unusual’s one attainable future the place the Avengers win ultimately. Nonetheless, what occurs subsequent to the realm of magic is unknown (there’s nonetheless the specter of Baron Mordo teased in Doctor Strange) and this can possible be the focus of Doctor Strange 2.
2. Did Bucky Know What Steve Rogers Was Doing?
Bucky’s habits on the finish of Avengers: Endgame is curious; he yielded the ultimate second to Sam Wilson, who spoke to Outdated Man Cap and obtained his protect. Bucky even urged Falcon to have that last dialog with Steve. It wasn’t spelled out however it looks like in some unspecified time in the future earlier than his time journey, Steve let Bucky in on his intention to move the Captain America protect (and presumably, the mantle) to Sam and never him. Whether or not Bucky objected in any respect can also be open to hypothesis, however ultimately, the previous Winter Soldier regarded on approvingly as Sam accepted the protect. There’s positive to be no main laborious emotions as the pair’s adventures shall be proven within the Falcon and The Winter Soldier collection on Disney+.
1. Is There Nonetheless An Avengers Crew At The Finish of Endgame?
One of many largest questions popping out of Avengers: Endgame is whether or not the Avengers team still exists. With Iron Man and Black Widow useless, Captain America an outdated man, Thor off in area, Hawkeye retired, and Hulk’s proper arm severely injured, the Unique Six are out of fee. Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Conflict Machine, and Spider-Man are the final “official” Avengers standing – although it looks like Captain Marvel turned a part of the crew in the course of the 5 12 months hole – however the crew’s compound was fully destroyed. What occurs subsequent for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the way does the superhero crew proceed?
