to:

* When Wanda battles Thanos, she tells him "You took everything away from me!" He responds "I have no idea who you are." It seems like a ButForMeItWasTuesday moment until you remember this Thanos never got around to the events of ''Infinity War'' and had a brief conversation with Wanda.

Added DiffLines:

* Since the Quantum Realm's time is pretty wonky, just how ''long'' was poor Janet stranded there from her perspective to age into her early sixties? She very well felt like she could've been trapped in there for over two-hundred years or more.

Added DiffLines:

** No such thing as "non-living organism", by definition. But there are at least two different possibilities: one, that the culling only affected motile, or sentient, or even only sapient life (hence, Groot goes, since he's sapient, but regular trees aren't, so they don't). Two, the culling affected all life - but. It's ''completely random''. That is, more or less equivalent to a coin flip for each and every living being - heads, it lives, tails, it goes to dust. It's possible, however unlikely, that all the trees in that particular forest survived (all the grown trees, seeds are also alive, so some might have been dusted). But if so, somewhere in the universe there might be a planet that lost all of its forests...


Added DiffLines:

*** Also, wasn't the guy willing to sacrifice his daughter's life to get the power to do "greater good" the ''villain'' here?


** One can [[WildMadGuessing assume]] that the timeline would play out in a specific way if someone doesn't interfere.

* Banner is notably courteous to Lang when he's getting to know them, more so than most of the other Avengers. Of ''course'' he is: he's got [[Film/ThorRagnarok personal experience]] of how shocking it is to revive from what ''should'' have been a few hours' absence to find you've lost years of time and have woken up in a world you barely recognize.

to:

* Banner Professor Hulk is notably courteous nice to Scott Lang when he's getting to know them, more so than most of the other Avengers. Of ''course'' he is: he's got would sympathize with Scott: Banner has [[Film/ThorRagnarok direct personal experience]] of how shocking disorienting it is to revive from what ''should'' have been a few hours' absence absence, only to find you've lost years of time and have woken up in a world you barely recognize.

to:

* Bruce's arc has been with him not wanting to be use as weapon, or worry that he and the Hulk are hated for the destruction they cause. How ironic then, that in this movie, not only is Hulk loved by the people, but in conjunction, by donning the new gauntlet and undoing the Snap, he's now a force of creation/restoration instead.
* Bruce/Hulk are foils to Thanos in that both are giant, strong, mutations of their people. Both have elements of self loathing in their lives. However, Bruce eventually opens up, is able to connect with others, reevaluates his views on himself and finds peace, becoming a hero. Thanos fails to truly connect with others, remains obstinate in his views, even in the face of overwhelming opposition, snaps when he's not vindicated, and comes to failure.

** Being made from Stark Tech nanomachines, it would make sense that Tony could easily transfer the stones from Thanos's hand to his without Thanos knowing about it. When did this happen? If you listened closely, mechanical sounds could be heard during the brief moment Tony got his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet.

Tony also glanced at his hand while it happened to be sure that it worked before Thanos pushed him aside.



to:

* Fortnite is still running in the post-Snap universe. It wouldn't be surprising that the demand for online gaming has remained strong: seeking out other people online and playing games like Fortnite would provide them with some desperately needed human connection and a semblance of normalcy in a world that has changed for the worse in nearly everyone's case.


** Also worth considering: in what condition would those who died in the secondary wave be in? Those that were dusted from the Snap were fully restored, but people who have died of regular (non-supernatural) injuries and illnesses would likely come back still bearing their fatal injuries, only for most of them to die again. Maybe a few lucky survivors who were attended to in time would endure a long, arduous recovery at best. If Bruce did not have the presence of mind to specify that they return to the conditions they were in before the Snap, the results would be horrifying and heartbreaking for a massive number of people, and even that may not be enough to bring them back to their fully-able former selves.

* There's deep significance behind both times Tony says "I am Iron Man", especially when one considers [[{{Irony}} he's not wearing his Iron Man helmet in either scenario]]. First, they both strongly represent that Iron Man isn't defined by the mask, but by the man behind it. Second, it shows that Tony is only human (the first time he did it at the conference was done with [[{{Pride}} proud]] reluctance, as opposed to this time where he does it [[HumbleHero knowing his vulnerability to the Infinity stones will kill him]], but accepting it all the same).

Added DiffLines:

** Another heartwarming BookEnds: Tony's gift for Pepper. In "Iron Man", his birthday gift to her was for her to go buy herself something nice. After the 5 year time skip in "Endgame", his anniversary present to her is a custom-made 'Iron Woman' suit ''he made himself''. He's gone from keeping his relationship with Pepper impersonal and distant to something special.


* Tony defeats Thanos by swiping the stones off the glove while Thanos isn't looking and then responding to Thanos' boast with his own. In other words, [[Film/IronMan3 a cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner]]. [[Film/IronMan The "last act of defiance of the Great Tony Stark."]]
