How time travel works in The Avengers: Endgame

05 March 2023
In Avengers Endgame, time travel works by using the Quantum Realm.

The team builds a machine that allows them to enter the Quantum Realm, which they use to travel back in time to different points in the past. They use this ability to retrieve the Infinity Stones before Thanos can use them to snap his fingers and wipe out half of all life in the universe.

The movie follows the Avengers as they travel back in time to various moments in the past, including the events of the first Avengers movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Thor: The Dark World. They are successful in retrieving all of the Infinity Stones and use them to reverse the effects of Thanos' snap.

One interesting aspect of the movie is the way it handles the consequences of time travel. The characters discuss the potential for creating alternate timelines by changing events in the past, and they take steps to try to prevent this from happening. However, it is eventually revealed that they have created alternate timelines anyway, and they must work to correct these timelines in order to preserve the main timeline.

Regarding Captain America and the beautiful but tough-as-nails Peggy, the movie establishes early on that he is still in love with her, despite her being long gone. After successfully returning the Infinity Stones to their proper places in time, Captain America decides to stay in the past and live out his life with Peggy. The movie then jumps forward in time to show an older Captain America, who hands over his shield to Falcon, indicating that he has lived a full life in the past before returning to the main timeline.

The movie leaves some questions unanswered, such as how Captain America was able to live out his life in the past without creating an alternate timeline, given the rules established earlier in the movie.

Some fans have speculated that he may have been living in an alternate timeline and used his knowledge of time travel to return to the main timeline at the right moment, but this is not explicitly stated in the movie.

A classic time travel paradox.

Overall, Avengers Endgame uses the concept of time travel in a clever and entertaining way, while also exploring the complexities and consequences of altering the past. The resolution of Captain America's story arc is a poignant moment that provides a satisfying conclusion to his journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

America's ass indeed.
