Avengers Endgame ending Earlier this month the Avengers 4 trailer was launched by Marvel Studios, one that revealed the title as Endgame.
While this is clearly linked to a line by Doctor Strange in Avengers Infinity War, it’s also a word that comes up in Avengers Age of Ultron.
And now one theorist reckons a scene from that movie has foreshadowed how Avengers Endgame will end. Reddit user dafsjgf quoted the dialogue from the second Avengers movie.

They wrote: “Tony: ‘A hostile alien army came charging through a hole in space.
“‘We’re standing 300 feet below it. We’re the Avengers.
“‘We can bust arms dealers all the livelong day but that up there, that’s… that’s the endgame. How were you guys planning on beating that?’”
They added: “Tony: ‘We’ll lose.’
“Steve: ‘Then we’ll do that together too.’”
Before predicting: “Seems like a bit of foreshadowing…these two might die at the end of Avengers: Endgame.”
It’s long been rumored that some of the surviving Avengers will have to die to resurrect those who died in Infinity War.
However, our best bet is that Tony will die, not Captain America.
After all, to obtain the Soul Stone again on Vormir someone will have to sacrifice someone they love.
How fitting would it be for Tony to offer himself for Steve to push, after everything they’ve been through since the Civil War?
Avengers Endgame will be released on April 26, 2019.
Much has been made of the fact that the Russo Brothers borrowed the title of Avengers:
Endgame from a particularly cryptic line of dialogue in Infinity War (and lied about it!), but until recently, the fact that the same word also appears in Avengers:
Age of Ultron has generally gone unnoticed. However, as a new theory points out, the connection between Endgame and Ultron could be even more important.
It might even spell the return of the robotic villain.
Here’s the dialogue from Age of Ultron where “endgame” comes up (first spotted by redditor /u/dafsjgf):
ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.: (As Tony Stark/Iron Man) Recall that? A hostile alien army came charging through a hole in space. We’re standing 300 feet below it.
We’re the Avengers. We can bust arms dealers all the live-long day, but that up there, that’s – that’s the endgame. How were you guys planning on beating that?
CHRIS EVANS: (As Steve Rogers/Captain America) Together.
DOWNEY, JR: We’ll lose.
EVANS: Then we’ll do that together too.
So, first of all, the Avengers seem to have a thing for saying the word “endgame,” which makes sense when you consider that most movies end with them saving the world from total destruction.
That said, just like Dr. Strange’s use of the word in Infinity War seemed to strongly indicate where the upcoming movie was headed, the word’s appearance in Ultron might also be a big clue.
Or not. After all, Joss Whedon was famously averse to the whole universe-building focus that Marvel pushed on him.
So unless studio execs somehow knew what Avengers 4 would be called and then forced that word into the script of this 2015 movie, it’s probably just a coincidence.
But on the very slim chance that it’s not, let’s take a closer look. Because the rabbit hole is about to go a lot deeper.
Redditor u/dafsjgf suggests that those words indicate that Iron Man and Captain America will lose (meaning they’ll die) in the fight against Thanos, which makes sense since both of their contracts are set to expire after Endgame.
Watching these two frenemy superheroes go out guns blazing side-by-side would be an epic way to end their decade-long journey with Marvel.
However, as Screen Rant points out, Tony’s “endgame” speech is part of an argument to validate his creation of Ultron in the first place.
So does that mean Iron Man plans to bring back Ultron in an effort to defeat Thanos? Maybe he even uses Ultron to survive his doomed space flight back home after the events of Infinity War. Probably not, but maybe.
Unused concept art from ‘Infinity War.’
Screen Rant further points out that one piece of concept art (above) from an Infinity War teaser video that never made it into the actual movie shows Tony Stark in front of what looks like a bunch of new Iron Legion robots.
Assuming this idea makes it into Endgame, that would be the perfect scenario for the Avengers to revive Ultron so he can command a robot army in the fight against Thanos.
Then again, we’d like to think Iron Man has grown enough in the last few movies to realize he can’t solve all his problems with a powerful robot army, but then again, knowing Tony Stark, we wouldn’t count on it.
Leaked Avengers: Endgame LEGO Minifig Shows Us A Smiling Hulk
After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, neither Bruce Banner nor his green alter ego have much reason to be cheerful, and yet if this recently leaked LEGO minifigure is anything to go by, then Hulk will be seen with a smile on his face in next year’s Avengers: Endgame.
The images come courtesy of Instagram user Therealbatman102, and while it remains to be seen whether this design is the real deal.
it will likely add fuel to the old fan theory that we could be seeing Professor Hulk in his next film, or at least a version of the character that’s a little less primal in his manner.
In any case, this smile seems pretty at odds with the gloomy tone of the first Endgame trailer, and given Hulk’s ongoing squabble with Bruce, it’s hard to say what could be making him so happy, but perhaps he’s just rediscovered the thrill of the fight.
While Bruce’s fellow Phase 1 Avenger like Captain America and Iron Man have been the subject of much speculation around the matter of whether or not Endgame will be their swan song.
the question is raised less frequently for Mark Ruffalo’s character, probably because the Marvel movies haven’t been piling on the foreshadowing so much for him.
Still, Banner’s future in the franchise is far from clear, and perhaps the character’s role in the MCU’s Phase 4 (or lack thereof) all rests with how his two sides resolve their disagreements next year.
Either way, while Hulk chose to sit out most of Infinity War after losing his fight with Thanos, it’s a safe bet that he’ll be returning to the fray when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
