Avengers: Endgame has the mightiest heroes bring back those lost in Infinity War’s snap to defeat the big bad Thanos. This victory, however, has left fans with a lot of questions. One common question involves the logistics of how Thanos managed to his spaceship and army through the Quantum Realm, especially with the extremely limited supply of Pym Particles. Now, we have a definitive answer: Thanos pretty much reverse-engineers them.
Commentary track to the rescue
On the commentary track of Avengers: Endgame, the film’s creative team addresses the issue. Fans might recall that Past Nebula steals the Pym Particles from Future Nebula and hands them off to Thanos. But while there’s enough to get Past Nebula into the future posing as the “good” version of herself, there’s not enough for Thanos to stage a time travel-facilitated assault, but according to Joe Russo, that’s where Thanos comes in.
Joe Russo clears the air
“Now, the obvious assumption being that, Thanos who has a spaceship that can carry his army throughout the galaxy and conquer planets can also figure out how…” Russo said.
“Science up a little…” writer Stephen McFeely suggested.
“Add some Pym Particles… with his magician who can move matter,” Russo said, with McFeely nothing it was probably best not to dwell on it.
It’s an explanation is acceptable. Thanos is very intelligent of his own accord, but if you add Ebony Maw into the equation, it makes a good deal of sense that the two could fairly quickly replicate Pym Particles on a large scale. After all, Thanos’ is very technologically advanced.
The second Infinity Gauntlet
Midway through the film, like Rocket, Iron Man, and Hulk attempt to make the second Infinity Gauntlet, Russo gave Rocket a big appreciation.
“It takes Eitri, you know… and a legendary forge to make the first glove,” Russo said. “And it takes Banner, Tony, and Rocket to make the second one. Three of the scientific geniuses of the Marvel Universe.”
