Avengers: Endgame evaded the multiverse because the actuality of eternal Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widows (Scarlett Johansson) would have diminished the integrity of their deaths, according to screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
“It clearly exists because Doctor Strange has talked all about it, that’s part of the fabric of that,” McFeely said at San Diego Comic-Con.
Finality of the characters’ deaths
Avengers Endgame avoided the multiverse because the existence of Iron Mans and Black Widows would have lessened the finality of their deaths, according to screenwriters.
“It clearly exists because Doctor Strange has talked all about it, that’s part of the fabric of that,” said the screenwriter.
He also said that he has no idea where the Marvel Studios’ boss, Kevin Fiege, was going with the said superhero movie. He said, “I don’t know what’s happening tomorrow, I have no idea. But I’m a big believer in stakes.”
Just one of each Hero
As the outline, they mentioned that there can be only one Tony and one Natasha. Since the possibility of a multiverse ruins this condition, it had to be avoided.
Other multiverses we’ve seen
The concept of the multiverse was touched upon in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Mysterio claims to hail from a different Earth.
Feige at Comic-Con later unveiled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It a reality-spanning adventure.
“We first made reference to the multiverse in Doctor Strange. I think it’s something we’ll be playing within our own way,” Feige had told previously.
