Avengers Endgame theory - Infinity War deaths are indeed permanent, alternate timelines will be introduced
It would hardly be any surprise to see any of the characters who perished because of the Decimation in Infinity War, in Avengers Endgame. I am talking about before the Snappening is undone.
The Directors have stood their ground over their statement that the Infinity War deaths are permanent. But who’s ready to believe them? Nobody, right? But this new theory by a Reddit user believes the Russo brothers. The new theory then introduces the concept of alternate timelines to predict how the plot of Avengers Endgame would unroll.
And according to this theory, the deaths that took place in the timeline we saw in Infinity War are indeed permanent. But remember that Doctor Strange foresaw 14 million plus future scenarios. Now this theory believes that each of these scenarios forms an alternate timeline. Now, as per Doctor Strange, the Avengers have lost in each of these timelines. So in some of these timelines, some heroes are dead. In some other timelines, the heroes who died in other timelines are alive, and in some timelines, the heroes who are alive are different personalities.
This theory suspects that both the Captain America and Hawkeye/Ronin we saw in the trailer belong to some other timeline. The Hawkeye our timeline had was dusted with the Snap. The Captain we saw in the trailer where he is discussing a plan is the Cap from some other timeline where SHIELD is still operable and didn’t fall due to HYDRA.
Now, all this timeline tampering will bring out the greater threat that was teased by a leaked toy set packaging. This theorist believes it will be The Living Tribunal who will be this greater threat. Also pointed out is that the Avengers will join hands with Thanos to take down this new threat.
The full theory is attached below.
There's 2 main theories floating around that Endgame will be either Time-Travel or Dimension-Hopping. I have a slightly different theory. from r/marvelstudios
