Rank #1: 20 Questions After Watching Avengers: Endgame

Podcast cover
Read more

1) 0:41 Doctor strange knew that Tony would die?? - Allen Payne 2) 4:17 Nobody ever questioned about Tony Stark's snap? The snap was supposed to wipe out the half of creatures of the universe, but his snap only killed Thanos and his army? To me, that's the biggest plot hole. Great movie, tho. - roger2126 3) 8:20 How come Spider-Man's friend is still in school if 5 years has passed? I understand why Spider-Man is still in school but the friend?? - Shanda Y 4) 12:38 So Evil-Nebula returns to Earth (using the Pym Particles) and then later on lets Thanos through the Quantum Realm, which also must have needed Pym Particles (Nebula even makes a point of showing them to Thanos), but they were all given just one lot of the PP's, did I miss something? - Spike 5) 14:45 Question, where are the Infinity stones in the main MCU timeline? - Emmanuel Lopez 6) 22:06 I THOUGHT IT TOOK A "SPECIAL KIND OF PERSON" TO TOUCH or HOLD AN INFINITY STONE ??????? - Tyrotvxxx 7) 24:41 You guys don't understand the Multiuniverse theorem in quantum mechanics. This is an actual science thing, which implies that Time Travel is impossible. Travelling in "TIME" just creates parallel universes. - Kaoru Shimitsu 8) 37:19 You remember how doc strange said out of 14 billion realities one succeeds? Well what are the chances of a rat activating a quantum portal in a minivan in the afternoon that would be the exact one needed to save the universe from Thanos? - Ex Gleipnir 9) 41:51 How did Captain Marvel know where Tony Stark and Nebula were? - The Podcast Strikes Back 10) 44:00 Wait wait, so Thor is somewhere in a timeline without a hammer. Lol - deshon ficklin 11) 48:49 What happened to Vision? Still a great movie - William Smith 12) 50:46 Guys did you see the one person in front of Maria Hill and General Ross at Tony Stark's funeral? My theory is that it was Harley from Irom Man 3 maybe his gonna be the next Iron Man? Just a theory - Joshua Balagulan 13) 54:05 1 major question is how could Captain America age if he had the anti ageing serum put in him??? - Sarah'sDalyLife 14) 56:17 Think about it:. The ending actually makes that whole timeline disappear, according to the logic of the ancient one... right? Any Marvel storyline influenced by a stone or Thanos can no longer exist, right? - fredcdobbs2 15) 1:03:21 The main thing i really need explained is how did Cap put back all the stones? - BahamianKing242 16) 1:06:36 Black Widow dies? What about the Black Widow movie? - Heather C 17) 1:08:38 How does Falcon plan on being Captain America, if he doesn't have a single drop of super-serum in his blood? He's just a regular human, who's very good with his mechanical wings and that's it. It's like painting a random guy in green and calling him a new Hulk - Роман Мавроян 18) 1:12:58 I mean where the f**k is Adam Warlock? Like they teased that ages ago. And nothing has happened with him yet. - Stale Bread 19) 1:15:09 Can somebody please explain to me how all the Infinity stones from Thanos gauntlet move to Tony's right hand? - bayu pranayudha 20) 1:16:50 Were your haircuts inspired by Captain America, Iron Man and Thanatos or are they this terrible on purpose? - malcolm adderley Thanks to everyone who sent us a question in the comments on our spoiler review.
