Buckle the fuck up! Today we are in the car to discuss one of the most significant events in the history of cinema. The culmination of eleven years and twenty-two films’ worth of storytelling. All of it building to this movie. The crown jewel of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Drive Home Breakdown is rolling out on Avengers: Endgame!

On Black Widow. When Captain America goes back to put the soul stone back, who says that Black Widow isn’t returned to the living. As she has said in the past, she’s needs to find a new angle (as a covert operative) and being ‘dead’ would be a significant way to take her piece off the board. I doubt anyone alive has ever given back the soul stone so given that they could snap everyone back, the soul stone surely could bring back someone who had sacrificed themselves for it.
On Hulk trying to get her back, they’d know he did try, but simply jumping in time to after he tried would have allowed it not to work.
Also, if there wasn’t a significant reason for not showing it, the meeting and talk between Captain America and the Red Skull would have been in that film, and it isn’t (unless it’s on the cutting room floor). I think we’ll see that in the future in some form surely.
A fitting conclusion to the 10 year saga. They did a great job balancing the somber mood with some quips here and there and riding that wave of hope all the way through an eventful final battle and an emotional send off for some of the most cherished heroes.
All in all, a great job!
I wouldn’t mind listening to you guys talk about Endgame for two more episodes and was actually a little disappointed to see that the Captain Marvel episode was significantly longer than this one.
Loved the movie so much I’m seeing it again today! I was so scared with that intro that it underwhelmed you guys LOL!
Cheers for the shoutout (lol I’m aussie)!
