Plot


Clint Barton's family disintegrates along with half of all life across the universe when Thanos activates the Infinity Gauntlet. Carol Danvers rescues Nebula and Tony Stark, who are stranded in space following their defeat by Thanos. She reunites them on Earth with Natasha Romanoff, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Rocket, Thor, Pepper Potts and James Rhodes. The team tries to steal the Infinity Stones from Thanos and use them to reverse his actions, but find he has destroyed them to prevent their further use. An angry Thor decapitates Thanos.

Five years later, Banner has merged with his Hulk side and Thor has become the drunken ruler of Asgard's refugees in Tønsberg, Norway. Scott Lang escapes from the quantum realm and finds Romanoff and Rogers at the Avengers' compound. He explains that for him only five hours had passed and theorizes the quantum realm can allow time travel. The three propose to Stark - now raising a daughter, Morgan, with wife Pepper Potts - that they travel back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones before Thanos can collect them. Stark rejects this, concerned over what altering history will mean for Morgan, but after reflecting upon the loss of Peter Parker, designs a working time machine.

The reunited Avengers split into groups for their mission. Banner, Rogers, Lang, and Stark travel to the Battle of New York to retrieve the Time, Mind, and Space Stones. Banner visits the Sanctum Sanctorum and convinces the Ancient One to give him the Time Stone, promising to return it. Rogers steals the Mind Stone from undercover Hydra agents, and stumbles across and fights his past self. Lang and Stark's attempt to steal the Space Stone fails when the distraction they cause enables Loki to escape with it. While Lang and Banner return to the present, Rogers and Stark travel further back to the U.S. Army's Fort Leigh in 1970, to steal both an earlier version of the Space Stone and vials of Hank Pym's size-altering Pym Particles in order to return home. Rogers sees Peggy Carter, Stark meets his father Howard, and the pair succeed.

In Asgard, Rocket and Thor retrieve the Reality Stone from Jane Foster. Thor has a chance encounter with his mother Frigga, whose counsel restores his conviction. He obtains a past version of his hammer, Mjolnir. Barton and Romanoff arrive on Vormir for the Soul Stone. They learn from its keeper, Red Skull, that it can only be retrieved by sacrificing someone they love. Ultimately, Romanoff sacrifices herself.

On Morag, Nebula and Rhodes steal the Power Stone before Peter Quill does. Rhodes returns it to the present, but Nebula malfunctions and remains behind as her cybernetic implants interface with those of her past self. Thanos learns of his future success and the Avengers' attempt to thwart him through the Nebulas' link. He sends the past incarnation of Nebula to the present in Nebula's place.

Banner uses the Infinity Stones to resurrect everyone killed by Thanos as Nebula's past self uses the time machine to transport Thanos and his army from the past to the Avengers' facility. They reduce it to rubble, and in the chaos, Barton recovers the Infinity Stones. The past Nebula is killed by her present-day self when she attempts to take them from him. Rogers, Thor, and Stark confront Thanos, now planning to use the Infinity Stones to destroy the universe and create a new one with no memory of the original. Rogers proves able to lift Thor's hammer, but even it is not enough to defeat Thanos. Doctor Strange and Wong arrive and teleport all of the revived Avengers and others, including the armies of Wakanda and Asgard, to battle Thanos. Stark eventually rips the Infinity Stones from Thanos' hand and uses them to turn him and his entire army into dust, finally killing Thanos once and for all. The energy released by the Stones fatally wounds Stark.

Following a funeral for Stark, Thor appoints Valkyrie queen of Asgard and joins the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rogers returns the Infinity Stones and Thor's hammer to their original timelines, then lives out his life in the past with Carter instead of returning to the present. As an elderly man, he arrives to pass on his shield to Sam Wilson.

Music

Alan Silvestri, who composed the The Avengers song, was revealed to be returning to score both Infinity War and Endgame.
