Trivia: The scene with Steve on the elevator with the agents of Shield (Hydra) is a callback to The Winter Soldier, with the obvious flip that this time he deceives them and avoids a fight.

Trivia: Spoiler! Falcon announces his arrival to Captain America with "on your left", the same phrase Cap taunted him with when they first met in Winter Soldier.

Trivia: The arc reactor that says "Proof that Tony Stark has a heart" is the gift Pepper made for Tony in Iron Man 1 after she removed his old reactor.

Trivia: One of the time-travel movies referenced by Ant-Man is "Hot Tub Time Machine", which featured Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky in the MCU. In fact several of the films or franchises mentioned during the scene feature MCU stars. "Star Trek" had Chris Hemsworth in a small role in the 2009 film (If Inhumans still counts as MCU, then Anson Mount has been on Star Trek Discovery). Scott mentions 'Die Hard, ' which had Samuel L. Jackson in the third film. Interestingly, they don't mention Doctor Who, which has featured myriad MCU actors over the years, including Karen Gillan (Nebula), Christopher Eccleston (Malaketh the Dark Elf), and David Tenant (The Purple Man).

Trivia: There are no inserts of any of the actors in the funeral scene at the end of the film. Everyone pictured is actually there. The Russo Brothers have called it, "The most complicated scheduling shot in the history of cinema." (Source: Film School Rejects).

Trivia: Near the start, Okoye submits a report about an earthquake in the Atlantic, saying they should leave it alone. This is a potential tease for Namor the Sub-Mariner, ruler of Atlantis. This has been hinted at before, with a map in Iron Man 2 showing a point of interest in the Atlantic - the same map which flagged up Wakanda long before the official introduction of Black Panther.

Trivia: Despite her prominent billing, Brie Larson has only 10 minutes of screen time.

Trivia: Before the last battle Steve says "Avengers Assemble," a classic line from the comics which despite a few teases hadn't yet been said in the MCU.

Trivia: The number on Scott Lang's storage unit is 616. This is the same number used to refer to Earth Prime (the primary Earth 'continuity') in Marvel comics.

Trivia: Ken Jeong and Yvette Nicole Brown have cameos in the film. The two co-starred in the TV sitcom "Community," which "Endgame" directors Joe and Anthony Russo both worked on.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Wasp and Ant-Man are in the van trying to get the quantum tunnel operational. We cut back to the fight and we can see Ant-Man there too, fighting in his giant form. (02:22:20 - 02:23:00)

Suggested correction: He needed to hot-wire the van. It's quite possible he could have left the van for parts (he's seen slamming a Leviathan to the ground) or to protect it. It also could have been an illusion by one of Dr. Strange's people.

Sorry but the suggested correction makes no sense. For one Dr Strange's people have no idea what Ant-Man looks like, and secondly Ant-Man would have no idea where to get parts from in the middle of a battlefield, let alone know if alien technology would be compatible. Also the time frame given when the scene plays out allows no time for him to leave the van, this is a legitimate mistake.

Dr. Strange's people don't know what Ant-Man looks like? He entered the battle with them long before they went to the van. Earth has had access to the same Leviathan parts since the original Avengers. If Toomes can make wings out of it in Spider-man Homecoming, it's possible he can figure something out. Clint had passed the glove to Black Panther before Ant-Man is seen in the background. There was plenty of time. He also could have been defending the van while they brought the glove.

There is plenty of time for Ant-Man to have left the van and returned to it. As the scenes play out, Ant-Man and Wasp are in the front of the van trying to hot wire it. The film then cuts to the battle for several minutes, as we see the passing off the gauntlet, which includes the brief shot of Giant-Man in the background. A few minutes later the film cuts back to the van and we see Scott opening the rear door of the van. So there's plenty of time for him to have gotten out of the van, saw potential trouble with the Leviathan, turned into Giant-Man to stop it while letting Hope finish activating the tunnel, and then returning to check the final settings. Now, all this raises another question that has to do with the apparent ease Giant-Man has in traversing the battlefield, as in why not just give Scott the gauntlet, have him turn into Giant-Man, take a few steps over to the van, and then shrink back down to take the stones back in time?

More quotes from Avengers: Endgame

Question: If Captain America had to go back to return the infinity stones to balance the timeline, would he not have to go back to before Black Widow died to return the Soul Stone?

Answer: Well since he wouldn't know the exact moment she sacrificed herself, he might have shown up before then and then just had to wait for everything to play itself out before returning the stone.

Phaneron Premium member

I think the poster meant he would go back to the time he knew Black Widow and Hawkeye were aiming for, or a bit before for safety, then go there and wait until Black Widow died and Hawkeye got the stone, and then return it. It would be hard for him to watch, but then he would know when the right time was.

Right. But you also have to think that, having witnessed the events, and then seeing that the Red Skull is the guardian, that would have been a damn interesting scene to watch. Does Cap try bargaining with the Red Skull to return Black Widow to life after giving the stone back? On the other hand, the Ancient One's explanation was that the flow of time occurs simply because the stones are in the universe. I don't think it mattered where they are. She only wanted the time stone back because of how it was tied to the Sanctum. So really, Cap probably could have just thrown the stone in a ditch somewhere and been done with it. It also raises a question about the nature of Vormir as the home of the stone. We see the other stones were more or less fashioned into artifacts and out and about. This implies that they too were in some sort of temple in their raw stone form before being found, seized and manipulated into a real-world application. So does Vormir even have a mechanism for receiving the stone back once it's been claimed? And what is the soul stone's solo power, anyway? Reading people's fates like a crystal ball?

Vader47000

I don't think the red skull is really the red skull anymore, just some kind of ghost of whats left of him. However the stone gets returned is irrelevant, yes he could even just leave it in a ditch somewhere. He didn't return other stones in their original form either, except the time stone. These timelines don't continue on as the original one. According to the comics the soul stone is sentient and everyone sacrificed to obtain is has their soul trapped inside the gem. Cap and the others of course don't know that (although Hulk must theoretically know having used it) or in the MCU this does not apply. When possessing it you can control any life and read their souls (their feelings and desires). One can also revert living things back their original state (like Nebula for example).
