Avengers: Endgame — Chris Evans confident Marvel will close plot-hole


Time travel was prevalent in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, but plot points sometimes went against each other throughout the film, including a situation with Captain America.

Avengers: Endgame introduced new concepts to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with time travel taking precedence. This fantasy ability to move forward or backward in time allowed Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to complete their task at hand and battle Thanos.

Early in the film, the Ancient One told Bruce Banner that altering the main timeline risks creating a new timeline. In the final scenes, Captain America not only traveled back in time to return the Infinity Stones, but chose to live his life with Peggy Carter, skipping over the incident in The First Avenger which put him in a 70-year coma.

This opened questions over the alternate timeline this potentially created, as Rogers returned to the present-day as an aged man. The Captain America actor himself, Chris Evans, questioned this at Seattle’s ACE Comic Con, per ComicBook.com.

"“You know, I’m not sure I can give you those answers. That’s weak as s–t, but ask the writers,” Evans said at ACE Comic Con Seattle earlier today. “Look, I understand there’s a lot of things you can question about the time continuity but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about working with Marvel, they don’t leave stones unturned. They really don’t.”"

Marvel covered its fair share of plot points and callbacks in Endgame from the past, so maybe there are Captain America plans down the road to answer this. Plus, with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson as the new Star-Spangled Avenger, there is an opening to provide closure to Evans’ MCU run, even though that appeared to be intended in Endgame.

With San Diego Comic-Con ahead, and Marvel Studios set to host a panel, maybe hints at answers for this and other parts of the MCU come to light. The studio has a big future ahead, and including Captain America in it seems logical, inevitable and necessary.
