There's A New 'Avengers: Endgame' Fan Theory And People Are Convinced It Spoils Everything

Some die-hard fans just aren’t content to wait until April 26 to find out what happens in Avengers: Endgame. Now, an unverified leak on Reddit claims to have a full breakdown of Endgame, act by act.

Spoiler-phobes are freaking out because they think the leak ruined all of the film’s best surprises.

Until we actually see the film, these are just potential spoilers and theories. But without giving away too much, the breakdown does offer some hints about the film that are worth exploring.

Fair warning, there may be minor spoilers ahead!

Infinity Gauntlet

Marvel Comics

Before we get too far into Endgame, it's worth noting that this story has been told before. Jim Starlin, George Perez, and Ron Lim's Infinity Gauntlet miniseries featured Thanos' quest to wipe out half the universe by assembling the Infinity Gems/Stones.

After he succeeded, a small band of heroes came together to confront the Mad Titan and restore the universe.

The Snappening

Marvel Studios

Avengers: Infinity War took several liberties with Infinity Gauntlet's story, but it retained most of its important moments. Key among them was Thanos' moment of triumph, as he snapped his fingers and simply dusted half of the sentient beings in the universe.

While fans have dubbed this "The Snappening," the in-universe term is "The Decimation."

Calling for Backup

Marvel Studios

During Infinity War's post-credits scene, Nick Fury sent out a desperate call for help to Carol Danvers.

Fans who saw Captain Marvel last month witnessed the first meeting between Carol and Fury, as well as her return in the film's mid-credits scene, when she answered the call and met the Avengers.

From this point on, there are potential Endgame spoilers ahead!

Lost in Space

Marvel Studios

The possible script breakdown on Reddit reveals the potential solution for Tony Stark and Nebula's dilemma.

At the end of Infinity War, they were the only survivors of the battle with Thanos, and the Decimation. Tony and Nebula need each other to survive, but surviving is only part of their goal.

Now, their shared purpose is revenge on Thanos.

Little Thanos on the Prairie

Marvel Studios

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of this breakdown is that the initial battle with Thanos will occur much earlier in the film than expected.

Thanos may have retired to a farm in order to enjoy the "thanks of a grateful universe," but the Avengers are looking to live up to their name.

No Easy Solution

Marvel Studios

However, the breakdown suggests that the Decimation is a problem that the Avengers can't simply punch away.

That means they have to live in this harsh new world without their friends or loved ones.

That's going to give them time to reflect on what they lost and what they really want.

Don't Cry, Cap! It'll Be Alright!

Marvel Studios

There is evidence in the trailers to back up the claim that there will be a passage of time.

Captain America will lose the beard and shed a few tears over losing Bucky, Sam, and the rest of the fallen Avengers.

They really were his family, and he would do almost anything to get them back.

The Ant-Man Solution

Marvel Studios

At the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang/Ant-Man was lost in the Quantum Realm when Hope van Dyne/the Wasp were snapped out of existence. Even Scott was presumed dead after that.

However, the possible breakdown reveals how Scott makes his return, as well as his role in potentially undoing the Decimation.

The Battle of New York

Marvel Studios

Additionally, the script breakdown explained the apparent flashback to the Battle of New York from the first Avengers movie.

Several of the film's stars were spotted on the set wearing their costumes from the film in a recreation of those scenes. Now we may know why it was necessary to revisit those moments.

"Sweet Rabbit"

Marvel Studios

Another thing that gives credence to this breakdown is that it gives Rocket some very emotional beats.

That tracks with a recent interview with Mexican voice actor Sergio Zurita, who promised that Rocket would be getting those key moments.

After all, he lost all of his friends, and he may lose a few more.

Nebula's Fate

Marvel Studios

In the comics, Nebula is an unrepentant villain.

But in the MCU, she's a much more complex person. If the Endgame breakdown is legitimate, this film is going to bring Nebula's story full circle while giving her a satisfying emotional arc. She may even be on the Avengers alongside her former enemy, Rocket.

Who Will Die?

Marvel Studios

Perhaps the most upsetting part of the breakdown is the suggestion that some fan-favorite characters won't make it out of the story alive.

More tragically, some of the dead in the previous film simply won't be returning to life.

There are consequences for Thanos' actions that will play out long after this film, if the breakdown is legitimate.

Fan Reactions

Marvel Studios

So far, the overall response to the script breakdown has been positive on Reddit.

However, not everyone is convinced that it is legitimate. Other fans have voiced their concern that the film's twists may not be satisfying, especially if certain characters are sidelined early in the story.

This is the Endgame

Marvel Studios

You can read through the entire script breakdown on Reddit. But consider yourself warned, it is quite spoilery, if true.

Do you think that the latest script breakdown has exposed Endgame's biggest secrets?

Either way, we're going to be among the first in line to see _ Avengers: Endgame_ when it hits theaters on April 26.
