The Real Reason There Was A 5 Year Time Jump In Avengers: Endgame

    One of the biggest shocks of the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Saga during Avengers: Endgame was the movie jumping forward five years after the death of Thanos. In a movie where we were hoping that the dire stakes of Avengers: Infinity War would be undone, it solidified that they wouldn’t be doing that, not entirely. Our original heroes, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and the Hulk, all had to come to terms with what they lost and move forward before they were able to undo the snap and bring back the kinda gone. Even Ant-Man’s time machine wasn’t able to undo the consequences of Thanos’ devastation, just bring back some of the heroes we lost in the process. There is another reason, however, why the story might have jumped forward in time and that has much to do with the future of the MCU. With the original six down to a rough three, the stage is set for a new set of heroes. Not just the ones we’ve seen like Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Captian Marvel, but upcoming heroes like She-Hulk, Blade, Moon Knight, and Ms Marvel. That doesn’t even begin to address characters that have returned to Marvel Studios like the Mutants and the Fantastic Four. The time skip might also have implications for a new generation of heroes to take over from the older group and in some cases their actual parents as the MCU moves towards the Young Avengers. Given what we know about Kevin Feige and the planning that went into the first three phases of the MCU, it stands to reason that the gap between the snap and the blip is more than just a narrative device for Endgame. Let’s look at some of the possibilities.

      hulky gamma goodness added a mutagenic factor into a small percentage of those blipped back. = Mutants.
      Scarlet witch's arc during wandavision and the events of Strange/ MoM caused a time-hole to appear, bringing a 1960's space shuttle (or marvel universe equivalent) to earth 2020, = F4

      as for the young avengers... new tony might not be another time travel thing, can't see them flogging that horse too heavily so soon after Endgame, I think that there'll either be an AI tony, a clone, or... a long way down the line, a Morgan.

        Well I believe in cannon most mutants have latent powers that they haven’t discovered. So you can slowly integrate them. Unlike the Terigen mist

            Because the writers and directors are stupid hacks and they have no idea what they are doing anymore. And no, it is not part of any plan. They wanted to get our of their hole so they took the idiotic time-travel route.

                Cbr , the mutants are resent, only a generation or to old, and there powers come once they start maturing so all those kids who grew up and went to high school could be mutants meaning that mutants had always existed but are now only appearing

                    It would be so fun to have blade and Dracula in the mcu. Imagine seeing someone like Luke cage being talked down to by Dracula and him just knocking Dracula’s fangs out with a single punch.

                              I think it makes sense that some of the newly announced Marvel movies may take place within the 5 year time period.

                              If you think about it, we have dates for movies all the way to 2023, giving Marvel some time to add in movies that fill in some gaps before the actual year 2023 comes.

                              I say this because some MCU movie timelines coincide with their release dates. (Ex. Avengers Infinity Way, released 2018, and events take place 2018)

                              Before MCU release dates can coincide with the MCU timeline of events, they make take advantage of the next few years to fill in some gaps in the MCU timeline like the Black Widow movie for example.

                              This is just an assumption and I could be completely wrong.

                                    Nick Fury asks: "Who are you people?"
                                    Charles Xavier responds: "We are the X-Men. Haven't you heard of us?"

                                    Fury turns to Captain America and says: "Seems like you weren't the only one who was frozen asleep for some years. Disney is sleeping as well..." xD

                                      The real reason the movie was 5 year later was because of Tony Stark’s Daughter... and Ant Mans 5 hours.

Instead of cooperatively collaborating to give us some great Marvel stories, they are using the movie version(s) of Marvel comics as the rope in a tug-of-war, metaphorically speaking. Greedy ^ssclowsn is the problem.
