Look, I consider myself to be a big MCU fan because I’ve seen all the movies and shows a bunch and I love all the characters, but I also enjoy the events of the MCU the way Scott Lang does: with a lot of enthusiasm and also a lot of confusion.
And even though I’ve religiously watched each installment, there is still so much I still have questions about.
For example, did just, like…no one tell Scott what was going on in Infinity War?
Second question — Rhodey and Scott appear to have seen Hot Tub Time Machine, but…Sebastian Stan is in that movie. Did they not notice that Bucky was just casually in a movie?
How come Doctor Strange holds the Time Stone and not, you know…the Reality Stone?
How old is Wanda?? Steve calls her “just a kid” in Civil War, but two years later she’s holing up with Vision, and then from her timeline (skipping the five years of the Snap), it’s only a few weeks later that she goes to Westview, right? So…is she like 19?
And why does Vision manifest himself into an old dude (sorry, Paul Bettany) if he’s technically only a few years old and can look however he wants?
Who is the fake Pietro? Just an actor Agnes found? Then why is he played by Evan Peters?
Why did Jane and Thor break up?
Why don’t the Avengers use the Time Stone against Thanos? Doctor Strange made a big deal about not destroying it and using it against Thanos, then they never did.
Why didn’t Fury ever call Carol before the very end of Infinity War?
How did Captain Marvel find Tony at the beginning of Endgame?
Did Bruce and Thor ever figure out what happened in Civil War?
How did the rest of the world react to Wakanda revealing their stores of vibranium?
Where the heck was Nakia when everything went down in Infinity War and Endgame?
How can Star-Lord breathe on so many planets?
If Steve went back to be with Peggy, it was in a different part of the multiverse (and thus a different Peggy). So how the hell did he end up back in Bucky and Sam’s universe at the end of Endgame without using the machine?
Also, if Steve went to some other universe, that means there were two Steve Rogers. The other one was in the iceberg, sure, but…what happened to him when he came out? Did the two Steves meet?
And in that timeline/universe, did Steve go back to save Bucky and reveal that S.H.I.E.L.D. was actually Hydra?? Did he stop Bucky from killing Tony’s parents? Did Iron Man even exist then??
And what the hell happened to him after he gave Sam the shield?
How did Hope’s mom not go insane (or starve) with that many years in the quantum realm?
What is Valkyrie’s name, and why do they just call her Valkyrie?
How come no one tried to find Bruce after Age of Ultron?
How do people not recognize Bucky?
How does Bucky make money?
How did Loki fake his own death so convincingly in The Dark World? And, like…why? So he could just cause high jinks and watch theater?
If Gamora’s sticking around in this timeline/universe, what happens to Peter/the Guardians in her original timeline?
Also, how did Gamora stick around?
What happened to people who snapped in airplanes or places that were no longer there when they returned?
Were plants snapped?
Why did Heimdall send Hulk to Earth and not Thor?
How were there, like, any Asgardians left after the Snap?
Could Steve just, like…put the Soul Stone back and bring Natasha back to life?
What happened to Cap’s new shield?
How are these two the same person???
What the heck happened in Iron Man 2? Did Tony let Rhodey steal the suit or no?
What happened to the Sokovia Accords after the Snap?
And finally, the Avengers do a ridiculous amount of property damage. Who pays for all that?? Even Tony Stark isn’t that rich.
Okay, so this is by no means comprehensive, but I feel much better to have gotten these off my chest. Do you have any answers for me, or are you as lost as I am? Let me know in the comments below!
