well Whedon was also the writer as well as director so discussions that would get bounced around between Joe and Anthony Russo as well as Markus and McFeely (with advisement from other directors like Gunn, Cooglar, Waititi, etc.), would have to be discussions Whedon would have to have with himself, not to mention the involvement of the now defunct Creative Committee made up of people who weren't involved with making the movies like Ike Perlmutter and various comic book writers.
Uh, didn't know that girl was played by one of the Russo's kids.
If the time stone was the only one that really mattered then Thanos is an idiot. And the movie completely fails in its narrative. So I will assume having the time gem would not allow Thanos to go all the way back to prevent the destruction of any one stone. In my head cannon the mind stone exploding seconds before was probably an easy thing for Thanos to sidestep.Well, even when they got to the point where the heroes decided to make the sacrifice to save others, Thanos essentially nullified that sacrifice at every turn, the most blatant being Vision's death which Thanos just reversed time to get the stone and killed him anyways so his sacrifice was meaningless.
So while the heroes grappled with the idea of trading lives for the greater good, it's wasn't just that Thanos was willing to make the sacrifice where the heroes weren't, they were up against someone that took away their ability to even choose. Thanos went beyond the natural laws to bend the universe to his will, to force it into submission.
They were going up against someone that doesn't even play by the rules, but just because they lost, they can't give up.
It's the same issue with Cercei's daughter Mycella and Gilly's baby in Game of Thrones. At the beginning of season 3 Mycella is a little girl and the baby was just born. By season 5 Mycella is a grown teenager ready to wed the prince of Dorne and the baby hasn't grown a bit.
Eh, it stands to reason if Veronica could take on the Hulk and ultimately subdued him (Banner himself said it kicked the crap out of him), then a nanotech armour capable of withstanding blasts from the Power Gem would be much more advanced and similarly more powerful than Veronica was.
As for how Hulk is going to get a power up, I'd argue what he lacks is control and more importantly anger. His heart just doesn't seem to be in it since Sakaar and the Russos seemed to imply he had no will to fight and was tired of Banner using him as a weapon. So he needs that motivation to get angry again because his whole gimmick is he gets bigger and stronger the angrier he becomes.
Maybe we'll actually get to see Hulk getting angrier and growing a few feet taller while trading blows with Thanos until he has to look up at Hulk and realises he can't keep up.
Ah, that's definitely a possibility.It's the same issue with Cercei's daughter Mycella and Gilly's baby in Game of Thrones. At the beginning of season 3 Mycella is a little girl and the baby was just born. By season 5 Mycella is a grown teenager ready to wed the prince of Dorne and the baby hasn't grown a bit.
The writers changed their ages to fit the story, and if that story is good and/ or entertaining enough, most people won't care or notice.
what do they mean by "same shot different sequence"Don't forget that it's 99% given that parts of this trailer are fake, audio is different, etc. So that final shot of everybody in quantum suits, who knows whose present and isn't.
The only thing I'm believing right now is the end credits scene from Captain Marvel. Who knows how much of this footage will change in the final film.
