Caution: Spoilers ahead, if you haven’t watched Avengers Endgame yet, please continue at your own risk.
Avengers Endgame left a lot of plot holes and people have been wondering ever since as to what is going to happen. One such plot hole was during the time travel wherein Cap and Stark go back to the setting of the first Avengers movie and try to steal the Tesseract.
They fail their mission but also, in turn, help Loki get a hold of the Tesseract and in turn, help him escape.
Avengers Endgame: What the Russo’s have to say?
The Russo brothers have given confirmation as to Loki creating a divergent timeline after he takes the space stone.
The brothers were asked whether if Captain America was able to fix up all the stones in the messed up timeline before the film ended. The Russo’s went on to explain the presence of multiverses in the Marvel Comics Universe.
“The intent was that he was going to correct the past timelines at the point that the stones left,”
“Loki, when he teleports away with the Time Stone, would create his own timeline. It gets very complicated, but it would be impossible for [Cap] to rectify the timeline unless he found Loki.
The minute that Loki does something as dramatic as take the Space Stone, he creates a branched reality.”
“We’re dealing with this idea of multiverses and branched realities, so there are many realities,”
Captain America also did the same?
Joe explained with an example of Captain America. He created his own timeline while he was putting the stones back in their original timelines. Joe said that Cap needed to come back to the present timeline because he had to give his shield to Sam Wilson who is also known as Falcon.
“There’s a question of, how did this separate timeline Cap come to reappear in this timeline and why?”
