‘Avengers: Endgame’ Writers On Their Scientific Explanation For Time-Travel

Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely discussed how they handled the time travel in Avengers: Endgame during an interview with Fandango.

Avengers: Endgame followed our heroes as they traveled back in time to collects the Infinity Stones so they could use them to reverse Thanos’ decimation. Of course, fans have since raised many questions about the mechanics and logic of our heroes’ journey through time and Stephen McFeely explained they turned to real physicists when developing the script, eventually landing on the idea of alternate timelines being created:

“We brought in a couple of physicists who, to a man, said, “I’m glad you brought me in, because I’ve always wanted to talk to people from Hollywood to say that you know I love Back to the Future as much as the next person, but we don’t think that’s how it would work.” Which was also helpful for us because as you can imagine, every time we went back to one of … you know we have six different time heists in three or four different periods … if every time you went back you created a new Biff’s Casino, for want of a better term, right? Another crack in the version of your timeline? We would never get out of the second act.

So for us the strongest thing we could do, and the most helpful thing we could do, is to operate under some kind of branch reality, so that the things that have already happened … which is what … again, it’s time travel which is humanly impossible, but a number of physicists had told us it’s much more likely we would operate in a branch reality than a singular timeline. So that’s the floor for the time travel conversation.”

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it, which have now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, before Marvel kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.

While plot details still remain under wraps, Earth's Mightiest Heroes are expected to team up with Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and utilize the Quantum Realm in their efforts to undo the decimation from Thanos' snap and bring back half of the universe's population, who were turned to dust by the Mad Titan.
