Despite being arguably the most critical component of Avengers: Endgame, the time travel rule has left fans with a lot of questions put forward in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Even now, months after the theatrical debut of the film, fans are still not completely clear on what is and the don’ts of time travel are in the Endgame, and now, directors Joe and Anthony Russo are clear about a particular detail Are doing how it all works.
In a recent video from Wired, fans answered questions from co-director Twitter and, in one, a fan knows why it was okay for Smart Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to reveal the future for the ancient one (Tilda Swinton) Wants if the Avengers were not going to talk about the future, I The Past. It turns out, the description is very straightforward and makes a lot of sense in terms of the enormous scope of the story.
[“It is a return to future rules that do not apply in our universe,” which Russo said in direct answer to the question. [“We are playing by a different set of rules.”]
However, even with the film playing by a different set of rules, Anthony Russo explained that there are some essential reasons why talking about the future in the past can be problematic – and knowing why the ancient one was okay.
[“You might be thinking about the fact that Doctor Strange doesn’t want to tell Tony about what time they’re in as they’re going into a climactic fight with Thanos,” Anthony explained. “The differences between these two situations are when the Smart Hulk is talking to the ancient one; the ancient one is now no longer alive during the events that they are discussing while Tony is talking too much about the events he and Strange There is a little bit of a difference there.]
[“And he’s just really talking to someone about this before his death,” Joe said, taking it a bit further. [“You don’t want to emotionally confuse them or create a situation where they now want to go through with what they are supposed to go through with.”
[“Especially when their opportunities are one in 1.4 million,” added Anthony. [“You have to be very, very careful about not messing it up.]
This specific breakdown makes a lot of sense, especially if you go back and look at Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) time travel within the Endgame. Tony quickly establishes on him that his patronage [“Happy Ever After]” as it were – his life with Pepper and his daughter Morgan – is of the utmost importance to him. While the possibility that he will not survive the time Heist is something that he clearly understands intellectually, it is also not something he sees as a real possibility – or, at the very least, not allowing himself to be considered Can. It is entirely possible that if Tony knew the things that he was going to die for the team to eventually succeed and save the universe, he opted out and thus one of the 1.4 million prospects Successful results will be wasted.
The legend, there is also something that will be part of it, can be said to prevent the story value from withholding information about the future. One of Endgame’s deeply emotional moments for fans is getting to see Tony realize that they are the only successful result – as well as what it takes for him to Means attainment. It makes him [“I’m Iron Man” picture) moving, even more, his sacrifice all the more heroic.
“What’s so incredible about Robert Downey and his performance – and we think it’s an award-caliber performance – is when he looks at Benedict at that moment, do you see what’s on his face and the way he just Drops his eyes and receives information, it’s because he knows he is the solution and the solution involves snapping his fingers – he’s going to die, “Joe Russo explained to Backstory magazine . “The thing he wanted to preserve two hours earlier in the film is his relationship with his daughter, and he would have to sacrifice that to save everyone.”
