With my dystopia hat on, one thing they glossed over is that they suddenly doubled the population of the planet when the economy and supply chain would have been reducing down over the last 5 years to meet demand. So everyone starves to death and there's a massive war over resources

Not to mention everyone coming back 5 years later who were previously thought dead.
People would have started just getting used to losing their loved ones. Maybe starting new relationships. Then, poof! All of a sudden their wife reappears looking no different than when she disappeared half a decade ago.

Yeah I really do feel that the Russo's were trying too hard to be clever with this whole time-travel lark and wrote themselves into a scenario that is just completely inpractical and nonsensical. I really don't think Endgame is a very well written film at all and for me the whole film fell flat as a result.

They should have just had the time travel reset the original snap at the time of the snap and just get on with things. This 5yrs of complete cosmological post-apocalyptic decent malarkey just begs about a billion more questions than it answers. The whole film is excessively maudlin and drab and dull imo.

Plus I presume people got put back exactly where they left off - bit of a bummer if you happened to be on a plane at the time

This is probably why we should just enjoy films for what they are, rather than analysing the practicalities

Better still Captain Marvel returning IM to earth they find Thanos' location - all the remaining avengers go to fight him Captain Marvel gets killed in the process; but they get the gauntlet. This time they undo the snap and are back on earth just before the original snap happens back in their old bodies but still remembering losing before (plot hole i know but attribute it to the mindstone and they all held hands or something when the reverse snap occured) and its just as well cos Thanos shows up with his army. Cue another battle but this time all the avengers working and and youknowwho still dies when he and thanos punch it out with the gauntlets

They had the MacGuffin of all MacGuffins no need for the time travel tech stuff and keyboard literate rats.

The quantum realm stuff from Ant man and the wasp could be used as the home of the next threat and all the messing about with the gauntlets causes something from the quantum realm to escape.

Apparently an updated version of Avengers:Endgame is going into cinemas with some 'new footage' added... but not so much deleted scenes, but end credit scenes and 'a tribute'.

Seems they are desperate to beat the Avatar B.O. Record.

That's the only reason I can see for them doing it.

It does seem a bit cynical, but my son and I wanted to go see it again anyway. We didn't get the chance before because he was busy with A' levels, but we'll go this time.

Me thinks with some good planning you could just sneak into the back of the cinema to watch the end credits again having just finished watching a film you hadn't seen before You'd have to be a real fan boy to watch all 3 hours again just for different/extra end credits.

It is also getting a very limited re-release because they don't want it to impact Far From Home's takings.
