One of the Infinity Stones was “Time”, so I don’t think it matters.
I would also not be surprised if Thor’s sister reappears somewhere down the line, since Thanos is supposed to have a thing for Death.
Recall that Dr. Strange only saw one timeline where the Avengers would succeed. A “Lose to Win” twist is a tradition in these movies. e.g. the fall of Asgard in Ragnarok, the disbanding of the Avengers in Civil War, or even abandoning the original plan to defeat the invaders in the original Avengers.


I fully expect that Dr. Strange's deal to give Thanos the stone in exchange for Tony's life will be shown to be a part of the one timeline where they end up succeeding.

I also have a feeling Avengers 4 will bring back most of, if not all, the characters who died in Infinity War while killing of some of the remaining survivors - for real this time. (Tony Stark and Captain America are the most likely casualties - as both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans's Marvel contracts are over after Avengers 4).

What will happen to the upcoming slate of 9 films?

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok - July 28, 2017

Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 - May 3, 2019


Just to review the original post, the first three films were big hits. Spider Man rejoined the Cinematic Universe and bumped Ragnarok to the fall and Black Panther to February where it set all kinds of records. Captain Marvel moved to 2019. Inhumans debuted on ABC where it crashed big time.

Captain America: Civil War BV $1,153.3
Doctor Strange BV $677.7

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 BV $863.8
Spider-Man: Homecoming Sony $880.2

Captain Marvel started screening for film critics last night and the early word is (no surprise) quite positive. Can Marvel do any wrong?!

But of course, the trolls are out again and already trying to tank the movie's user score on Rotten Tomatoes. Seems like they hate any movie that doesn't star a white man in the lead role (they also targeted Black Panther's user score on Rotten Tomatoes - that didn't quite work out for them, did it?).

But BP sucked, that's why. I made it 40 min
in, felt like 2 hours. Horrible acting, ridiculous
storyline. A bunch of advance green tinted
Black people carrying spears, some of
them with dinner plates in their earlobes
or lower lips. Did I mention the acting
was beyond atrocious?
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Until last year, the five billion-dollar Marvel Cinematic Universe Films were the three Avengers films, and the third Iron Man, and third Captain America film.




Last year Black Panther surprised the world because a new character produced a billion dollar movie.
This year Captain Marvel is also a new character and the film is also becoming a billion dollar movie.

Black Panther $700.1 domestic +$646.9 foreign (final revenue)
Captain Marvel $353.8 domestic +$636.8 foreign (24 days)

The foreign boxoffice is about the same, but domestically this one has earned roughly half as much. Why?

It’s not a film that connects with the core Marvel Universe demographic, teen boys. The movie panders to tween aged girls with a retread of the “girl-power” storyline already done by “Wonder Woman”. Everyone of the male characters is over 50, so there’s no one for the straight ladies to swoon over, and the filmmakers deliberately avoided sexy costumes for the ladies, which is a deal breaker for repeat attendance by the teen boy core.

One and done: Many in the audience were mainly there to see the bonus bits in the credits setting up the next Avengers release.

Look for the next Avengers film to shatter opening week records, including fastest to $1B. But then, I expect business to fall off, unless a new hero can restart the franchise with the current crop of 8 - 12 year olds.

That analysis makes sense, but I don't see why it doesn't apply equally to the foreign box office. I suppose both Black Panther and Captain Marvel had bigger overseas box office than the other non-Avengers movies in the last two years.

Foreign Box Office
$406.0 Ant-Man and the Wasp 2018

$546.0 Spider-Man: Homecoming 2017
$538.9 Thor: Ragnarok 2017
$473.9 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 2017

Avengers: Endgame is 3 hours 2 minutes long. The longest Marvel movie by about a half an hour.

I'm sure it's going to be a box office smash, but that long runtime does mean less show times per day.

Tickets still haven't gone on sale yet. The rumor is that tomorrow is the big day. I've been waiting to snatch my tickets to the first showing for weeks.

Endgame tickets went on sale this morning at 8 am.

I purchased 4 tickets for the first showing at about 8:02 and the theatre was already mostly sold out. And shortly after that all the various theater and ticketing websites crashed due to the high demand.
