"Maybe there’s a story there"
Avengers: Endgame directors the Russo brothers have responded to a fan theory regarding alternate dimensions.
Following the release of the latest Endgame movie, fans have been eagerly unpicking scenes for hints of what could happen next. With many keen-eyed viewers sharing multiple theories about the latest offering, some called into question Steve Rogers’ (aka Captain America) jump back into the Quantum Realm, before returning shortly after.
Although it had been five seconds on screen, Chris Evans’ character emerged as an elderly man – having found Peggy and deciding to stay in the ’40s. This prompted fans to question if he had been living in the past or if an alternate dimension was involved.
Now, the Russo Brothers have said that a new dimension was created – opening the door for multiple MCU spin-offs.
‘If Cap were to go back into the past and live there, he would create a branched reality,’ Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly. “The question then becomes, how is he back in this reality to give the shield away?”
He added: “Interesting question, right? Maybe there’s a story there. There’s a lot of layers built into this movie and we spent three years thinking through it, so it’s fun to talk about it and hopefully fill in holes for people so they understand what we’re thinking.”
Meanwhile, another fan has claimed to have discovered a clue pointing to the future of the MCU. Elsewhere, a connection between Endgame and Dr Who has been discussed online.
In a five-star review, NME said of Avengers: Endgame: “It is an astonishing action movie, with a final hour that keeps ratcheting up the crowd-pleasing sequences in a mega-battle filled with so many characters that we should probably take a moment to give thanks to the poor people who had to coordinate the schedules of countless A-listers.”
