(Spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame” under)
The key to any lengthy film, together with “Avengers: Endgame,” is its second act. Unless you’re speaking about one thing like “Gods and Generals,” which is tremendously boring the complete approach by way of, most lengthy films are likely to have essentially the most slack within the center half, and that’s the place they lose audiences and decide whether or not audiences are going to return out the opposite facet pondering “that didn’t feel like three hours” or “that felt like MUCH longer than three hours.”
“Endgame” is not any exception to this rule — its second act could be very a lot the rationale why it by no means feels exhausting to observe. There’s simply no slack on this factor, and undoubtedly not in its zippy center half.
And that’s as a result of the midsection of “Endgame” accommodates the a part of the movie the place the Avengers enact their large plan to undo the injury Thanos did on the finish of “Avengers: Infinity War.” That plan? A “time heist,” through which the Avengers return in time and steal the Infinity Stones earlier than Thanos destroyed them.
Our heroes revisit main previous occasions, just like the fast aftermath of the Battle of New York from the unique “Avengers” movie, the place they should snag the Tesseract and Loki’s scepter earlier than they are often taken again to SHIELD. But issues don’t go as deliberate and the entire scenario will get extraordinarily uncontrolled, and so they make one very large mistake that ought to theoretically have main penalties.
That flub comes when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), disguised as safety, will get the Tesseract knocked out of his hand proper as he’s making an attempt to flee. It lands on the toes of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who’s at the moment Thor’s prisoner simply moments after the top of the battle, and Loki grabs it and makes use of it to teleport away.
The film kinda treats this improvement as a minor hiccup — Tony and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) merely go additional again in time to steal the Tesseract in 1970 as an alternative, and that entire Loki scenario isn’t talked about once more.
But it is a drawback, in response to the principles of time journey set by the movie. Unless Steve someway prevents that entire factor from taking place when he returns the stones, then the incident would have sparked a branching alternate timeline the place Loki is operating round with the Tesseract after the Battle of New York.
According to the “Avengers: Endgame” time journey guidelines, the one strategy to preserve that from taking place can be to actually preserve that from taking place within the second — both by stopping the Avengers from doing their time heist within the first place or by interfering in that second. Going again to 1970 to steal the Tesseract then additionally doesn’t assist as a result of allegedly Steve returned the stone to that second.
And regardless, as Hulk says, altering the previous simply creates a brand new, alternate timeline. Doing one thing to the Tesseract in 1970 wouldn’t have an effect on Loki’s means to grab it in 2012. According to the principles set by this film.
So except Captain America went again to 2012 and particularly prevented Loki from taking the Tesseract, then there’s an alternate timeline the place Loki simply ran unfastened after the Battle of New York and did who is aware of what unhealthy issues. And there isn’t any indication that Steve did something about that scenario — Hulk duties him merely with returning the stones, and Old Steve solely says he returned the stones earlier than deciding to retire prior to now. And he would have returned the Space Stone to 1970, not 2o12.
So what does this imply for Loki? It’s anybody’s guess, since Loki isn’t even talked about once more after that scene. It could possibly be, and that is purely hypothesis, that Loki’s escape is the start of the Loki TV present that Marvel is producing…
