* Meta-Fridge: The earliest posters for ''Endgame'' depicted an Avengers "A" with its left edge broken into particles. Everyone assumed this was a reference to half of life disintegrating into dust in ''Infinity War'', but it's actually the dust ''coming together to re-make'' the "A" symbol. Those posters '''showed''' us precisely what Banner's Snap would do, months before the movie came out!

Added DiffLines:

** Moreover, Steve has never been one to show off, or to rob his comrades of their pride. He doesn't want to make Tony, Bruce, or anyone else who'd just ''failed'' to lift the hammer feel diminished or embarrassed by their lack of worthiness, so he lets them believe that ''nobody'' who isn't Asgardian royalty could have done so.


*** For one, in Doctor Strange it was shown that reversing the flow of time reverses it at just a bit faster than normal speed, at most double the normal speed of time. Which would have meant that it would require someone constantly rolling back time for 2 and a half years. Therefore whoever would wear the infinity gauntlet would need to survive that for a long time, which as far as anyone can tell would not be possible.
*** Also, just jumping back would most likely, similar to the quantum-time-trivel only create a separate timeline, not fixing the current one.

* Tony snaps away Thanos, his army and the wreck of the ''Sanctuary II''. He's learned from [[{{Film/SpiderManHomecoming}} Toomes and his gang]]. There was nothing for anyone like Toomes or Hydra to scavenge after the battle.

*** Furthermore, it is not protagonist-centered-morality. It is pretty much impossible that Tony was the only one who had children since the Snap. Thereby wiping out the last five years would have wiped out hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of small children who would not have been born without the Snap simply on virtue of their parents only meeting afterwards, only deciding to start a family after the snap, and so on.
*** Lastly, even assuming that it was actually possible to roll things back 5 years, Strange looked through millions of possibly timelines with the one depicted in Endgame being the only one that actually resulted in Thanos being defeated. Therefore any timeline where they did roll things back ended up with Thanos still being victorious, thereby either achieving nothing or making things even worse.

Added DiffLines:

** It appears the Snap took out family lines, since Clint's family (wife, sons, daughter) were dusted/T'Challa & Shuri were dusted (not Okoye), so most likely Ardian or his wife would have been dusted as well.


** Unless Steve decided to stay in 1970, when he replaced the Tessaract. Just because an old car drove by, we are to assume it was the 1940s?


** Presumably, one of the 14 Million+ timelines that ''didn't'' work out is one in which Strange told Tony what he had to do earlier than the last one.

* How brilliant was it that ''[[Creator/KarenGillan Nebula]]'' was one of the people who knew the real way time-travel worked?


* Across many of his comic book counterparts, one thing that remains consistent with Hawkeye’s origin is abusive parents. Keeping this in mind creates some disturbing possibilities when Red Skull decides to refer to him as the son of his mother, rather than his father as he does for everyone else. This includes those like Natasha who don’t know their fathers at all. How bad was his father that even the Red Skull didn’t think he should be mentioned?

Added DiffLines:

** For all we know, in some of the timelines, the rat could’ve been a victim of the Snap.

Added DiffLines:

** One Reddit poster (cannot find original post) claims that Steve, who was sober at the party due to his inability to be drunk, realized that Thor had just told Tony that he could rule over Asgard if he can lift the hammer. The hammer then budges when Steve tries to lift it because he actually can lift it but he doesn’t lift it all the way because he doesn’t want to take Asgard away over a drunken bet. This would also explain his incredibly lame reaction after he fails: Cap is a bad liar, and is trying to claim that he can’t lift it.

Added DiffLines:

** She was also introduced undercover spying on Tony, who'd created a new form of power.


* In the five years since billions of people disappeared, food production probably went down significantly. Same with other products. While Tony's Snap will also bring back cattle, crops, and farmers, it won't bring back all the working infrastructure that has been dismantled or unused for 5 years, particularly tractors and other farming machines as well of container ships, harbours, trucks, airplanes, and other logistics. It will probably take substantial emergency measures of governments, [=NGOs=], and the UN on an international scale to harvest and transport more food to all of the returned people and prevent a famine.

to:

* It has been pointed that none of the TV series were affected by the snap. Not even ''Agents of SHIELD'', who has always been all about exploring the fallout of the events of the films. And yet, it made perfect sense that they didn't. Adding the snap into a TV series would have been in bad taste: it means erasing half of the cast by an unknown OutsideContextProblem, and whatever they had achieved would have been AllForNothing. And, unlike ''Film/AntManAndTheWasp'', we wouldn't see one of the survivors having a part in turning things back to normal: the cast would re-appear some years later by an "Outside Context Solution", also beyond the control of the heroes of the series. And that will not do. Spectators can understand that, say, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist do not get drafted for the war in Wakanda or summoned for the final fight fight against Thanos because reasons (as they take place in unrelated films), but will expect that they ''are'' allowed to solve the problems that show up in their own series.
