Avengers Endgame: How Much Time Has Passed Since Infinity War? Here's The Answer
What a time to be alive.
Update: Disney has released part of the footage referenced in this article online. You can watch it for yourself here. This is not the clip where Tony discusses how long he and Nebula have been stranded, but this subsequent footage featuring Captain Marvel was also shown to press on the same day. For more takeaways from that new footage we saw, check out the 10 things we learned about Endgame.
Given how many different haircuts and facial hair styles various characters have sported throughout the Avengers: Endgame trailers we've seen so far, there's been lots of speculation about how much time will have passed between the end of Infinity War and the start of Endgame. Disney recently screened around 10 minutes of footage for select press on the company's studio lot in California, and given how much we still actually don't know about Endgame, even in those scant minutes of footage, we learned quite a bit--including exactly how much time has passed between the end of Avengers: Infinity War and the beginning of Avengers: Endgame.
In this footage, we got a specific answer: When Tony records his extremely sad message for Pepper, which appears to be more or less the movie's opening scene, he mentions specifically that he and Nebula have been stranded in space for 22 days. That's just over three weeks between Tony and co.'s ill-fated battle with Thanos, and Endgame's early scene of Tony and Nebula stranded out in space.
Tony also mentions that their oxygen will run out by the following morning. Given that both he and Nebula will eventually make it back to Earth--judging by other glimpses we've seen, at least--we can assume their situation is about to change. That potentially places several scenes we've glimpsed in trailers around the same time frame, though others appear to be further in the future--or maybe even in the past. For example, we know from the trailers that Paul Rudd's Ant-Man will team up with the Avengers again in Endgame, but we didn't glimpse his arrival yet in the most recent footage screened to press.
That's not the only thing we learned from the latest screening. Click here for nine more things the footage revealed--from the Avengers' new secret weapon against Thanos to what the remaining heroes plan to do.
Avengers: Endgame hits theatres on April 26. Tickets went on sale last week, and unsurprisingly, pre-sales are setting records and crashed ticket-selling websites.
