By now we have all seen Avengers: Endgame. Some of us more times that we can probably recite each line from the film.
Avengers: Endgame probably set up the biggest top-secret storyline in the MCU by doing one small thing, letting the massive time jump from 2018 to 2023 happen without any information on what happened during thoes five years.
During Avengers Endgame we simply cut to the chase, get the stones back and reverse what Thanos did. The film avoided showing more of what the world looked like after the snap. We jump to five years later where things have improved and seem more in control by the Avenger’s efforts.
When you see a massive time jump like that in cinema you wonder what could have possibly happened during all those missing years.
I believe this was strategically set up for future films or TV shows that will or are already being developed by Marvel Studios. These films or movies could show what it was like to live in a world were people you knew simply vanished.
There are so many untold stories about the post “Snap” world, like did some of the prisoners on the RAFT escape? Who protected the innocent people? What happened to the children who lost their parents? Is the world like post-apocalyptic? What about the government? There are so many unanswered questions about this world we havent fully seen yet in the MCU. I’m sure many people would like to know.
We’ve seen stories from watching shows like the walking dead where a lawless world can be dangerous, people will start abusing the absence of law enforcement. It would be interesting to see what that world was like. Five years is a long time for people to live in a world like that. The unfortunate situation can have an adverse effect on the people who remained un-dusted.
What do you think? Do you think there is a plan to fill in the gap in the MCU? Share your thoughts.
