The Real Reason These Avengers Survived Endgame

  • Published: 26 May 2019
  • Avengers: Endgame's relatively light body count surprised a lot of fans. Shocked by its predecessor's carnage, audiences braced themselves for loss. Thankfully, the majority of Earth's heroes survived the latest encounter with Thanos, which raises a new question: why? It doesn't really seem like there's one right answer. Endgame gave us a ton of heroes, and the filmmakers likely had different reasons for keeping each survivor off the chopping block. Here's why we think the following Avengers survived Endgame.

    Everyone's favorite trash panda came out of Avengers: Endgame relatively unscathed. The easiest and most likely answer to the question of Rocket's survival is Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. At Hasbro HASCON 2017, Guardians writer/director James Gunn told fans he had an origin story for Rocket that he planned to tell. He also warned Rocket' s life story would likely be more "horrible" than it was in the source material.

    By March 2019, Gunn was confirmed as directing the movie using his screenplay, so all things considered, it looks like we might be learning more about Rocket's past in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. It would be a pretty big bummer if we only got to see that story after Thanos turned him into a small rug.

    Unfortunately we didn't see a lot of Okoye in Avengers: Endgame. She's in the final battle and briefly speaks to Black Widow in the beginning of the film. Beyond that, she's absent. Fortunately, that also seemed to increase her overall chances of surviving through the movie's end.

    In Infinity War, T'Challa's last interaction with Okoye is pretty memorable:

    "Up. This is no place to die."

    In a way, this moment is also the answer to her survival in Endgame. Okoye is part of the MCU as a whole, but she's particularly important to the Black Panther franchise. If she were to ever make the ultimate sacrifice, it should be in a Black Panther film.

    Not only that, but the aftermath of Infinity War and Endgame leaves us with a lot of questions about Wakanda and we're probably going to need Okoye to get some of those answers. After all, while the people who were snapped were brought back to life, they still did disappear, which means T'Challa was effectively dead for five years. The king of Wakanda died without an heir and his sister Shuri was dead as well. What happened in Wakanda during those five years? Who is T'Challa going to find on the throne?

          Pay attention to the dialog and body language of Bucky at the end of End Game and it becomes very clear that Cap told Bucky of his plan.

            Valkarie is a king. There's a difference in authority and regard. Sade is the king of sorrow not the queen. It's not a gender bend. It's a job acknowledgement.

                      I think every roll in the marvel universe should be reprised as a female roll moving forward. Not just one two or three rolls but all of them; we need a female spider women, female Capt America, female iron woman etc, etc. and we need it to happen asap.

                                They should have killed Captain Marvel off and bring her back with a different actress. She is a horrible actress and made on of the worst movie I have ever seen.

                                        Hawkeye was given a lot of material in Age of Ultron and they showed his family, his wife being pregnant... it was the perfect kind of way to kill of a guy. Joss has done this several times before. He's had a long standing tradition of killing of the most likeable characters on his shows in the past. He killed Fred and then Wesley on Angel, he killed Anya on Buffy, Book and Wash on Serenity and not to mention Phill Coulson.

                                        He set up Hawkeye for the exact same thing in AoU. Any fan of Joss was 100% convinced that he would die in AoU. Especially when we saw that little kid he went after.

                                              The MCU replacing real Thor with female thor. This means Thor's story will end on a bad note.

                                                  I disagree that Bucky has "too much red in his ledger". The fact is, America has a lot of red in ITS ledger since WWII. Hell, the entire war against terror is only necessary and our immigration crisis only a problem because we can't keep our nose out of other people's shit. I think a Captain America trying to redeem himself and a country he once believed in and fought for would be genius.
