Joe Russo answers your Endgame questions (SPOILERS)
Reddit Q&A

quote:

Q: What about those people who got dusted? What did those five years mean to them? Why didn't they grow older when undusted?

A: Yes, those people whom was lucky to survive the snap are 5 years older than the people who just got back. The reason Spider Man saw his friend again in high school at the end was simply because his friends was unfortunately also dusted like Spider Man was. Of course, there are people in his grade whom didn't die and they are probably already in colleges by now. To those dusted people, they had no conscious in these past 5 years. They didn't know what happened. It's as if they had just woke up from a long sleep. The only one who was aware about how many years has passed was Doctor Strange, because he has already seen that when he was time mediating on Titan. Parker's reunion with Ned was a touching moment. There are also people whom indeed moved on but suddenly was reunited with their lost ones. Yeah it's kind a complicated world now.
quote:

Q: How would Cap react when he encounter Red Skull when he returned the stone?

A: Red Skull would probably put the soul stone back to its location, and wait for the next unfortunate stone seeker to make sacrifice. Cap and Red Skull probably won't fight. It's because it's his mission to return the stone to its original place. The Red Skull is also no longer the same Red Skull from FA. He is more like a ghost, you could almost say he's a completely different entity now. He only exists to guard the stone, his past conscious may or may not exist anymore.

Is that just poorly transcribed or is Joe Russo a retarded person?

Jesus, the grammar is brutal in the first one.

frick me.

His answers suck, fwiw.

quote:


Q: How did Thanos bring his army to the future?
A: There is a guy called Maw in his army, he was a great wizard. Thanos himself was a brilliant genius as well. Those two easily reverse engineered and mass produced Pym Particles.



But...

quote:


Q: Can you get the soul your sacrificed for the Soul Stone back when you return it?
A: No, the process is irreversible. Even if you have returned it to its original location, you wouldn't be able to get the person back. In fact, it's not really returning the stone, more like put it back properly. The tribute soul for the soul stone will forever be sealed in that place, therefore Black Widow is gone forever.




frick it, still was very entertaining.

Cap came back to being the shield, but couldn't take Black Widow with him?

quote:


Q: EG's plot, is it a parallel universe or a closed time loop?
A: Nope, not a time loop. Both Ancient One and Hulk were right. You can't change the future by simply going back to past. But it's possible to create a different alternate future. It's not butterfly effect. Every decision you made in the past could potentially create a new timeline. For example, the old Cap at the end movie, he lived his married life in a different universe from the main one. He had to make another jump back to the main universe at the end to give the shield to Sam.




Priorities.

Yeah, never had any problems with the time stuff since they clearly just created alternate realities.

the only issue is how was old cap there. He should have been in an alternate reality.

I just (correctly) figured he used Pym Particles to come back to this reality and give Sam the shield.

He was. Russo explains that he lived his life in the parallel reality then came back to the original to say goodbye. Kinda stupid but it made for a nice shot with him on the bench

I’m the worst procrastinator in the world, but Cap really put off that return trip to Sam till the last minute.

Well Red Skull mentioned his quest for an infinity stone in IW...so why don’t you just say “ehh I guess we didn’t really think about that when we had cap return the stones “

right but people are forgetting you need a portal. As you see Scott was stuck until the rat flipped the switch in the van.

They could have set up the portal the night before and he portalled back. He had plenty to do it having to go to 5 different locations in the least.

I'm not understanding. He didn't need a portal in the places he was going. But would need one to get to the place of origin. See Scott coming back, then the test runs, then the whole gang after getting the stones, then Thanos and army. He needed one to get back to this reality. And there are 2 we know of. The van and the one they had just sent him back in.

I thought the idea of a bunch of kids returning to high school while some of their friends were currently in college or working to be really interesting. The Russos show Peter's reunion at school as a quick beat, but it turned into a thought-provoking encounter for me.

I expect we weren't supposed to think too hard about the ramifications of bringing half the population 5 years into the future.

Q: What if the mouse didn't press the button to turn on the quantum machine, wouldn't that stop EG from happening? Isn't this a bit too much of a coincidence?

A: Yes, the MOUSE SAVED THE UNIVERSE. Among the many realities in those 14 millions possible futures Doctor Strange foresee, the mouse failed to press button and thus the heroes failed in those futures.

So when Cap travels back in the end to return the stones, he doesn’t run into himself like he did when they did the time heist?
