‘Avengers: Endgame’ Directors & Writers Disagree on Captain America’s MCU Timeline

     May 7, 2019

Welcome back for a brand new episode of our flagship show, Collider Movie Talk! Today Perri Nemiroff is joined by Coy Jandreau and Scott Mantz to talk about some of the hottest movie news stories of the day.

First up we’re digging into some Avengers: Endgame spoilers, particularly a question regarding the time travel in the film. At the end of the movie, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) opts to stay in the past to be with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). That raises some questions! Does it mean that Steve has been Peggy’s husband in the main MCU timeline all along or did he create an alternate reality? Oddly enough, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have different opinions on the matter so on today’s show, Perri, Coy and Scott assess their quotes and offer their thoughts on the matter!

On top of that, we got a major announcement from Walt Disney Studios today; they unveiled their post-merger release calendar. The line-up includes a whole bunch of expected upcoming releases from Disney like a few new Star Wars movies and a whole batch of slots carved out for new Marvel Cinematic Universe installments, but now The Mouse is also making room for James Cameron‘s Avatar and many other projects that once called Fox home. There’s also been a very interesting development with New Mutants. Disney pushed that movie’s release from August 2019 to April 2020. Could that actually be a good sign for a chance? A sign that Disney has faith in the film? Maybe even enough to put some resources into reshoots? Catch the panelists’ thoughts in today’s episode!
