Marvel Wasn’t So Sure About Avengers: Endgame 5-Year Time Jump
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely always knew that the five-year jump was The Avengers: Finale was a bet. When they launched the idea in front of Marvel Studios, we wished them good luck in trying to achieve such an ambitious goal. That said, they have apparently managed to achieve the impossible and make a film that satisfies the studio with millions of fans around the world. Markus and McFeely recently sat down to discuss why they wanted Endgame to take place five years after the events of Infinity War .
In the end, the The Jump in Time was dubbed at the end of the War of the Infinite according to Christopher Markus. Thanos won and he succeeded. He decimated half of the universe and the writers wanted the audience to feel the anguish experienced by the characters. Markus explains.

"
Even Marvel Studios was not sure what Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wanted to do it in the beginning.In the end, they played with the chronology of the entire Marvel film universe, not just Endgame . wanted to do and Marvel Studios trusted them to change everything.Markus had this to say about the launch of the film in the studio.
"It was already controversial, not controversial, but everyone in Marvel was there really? Because you know that this is tera this film, this film, this movie, this movie … "good luck?" "
Another reason behind this five-year jump in Endgame was to give the characters a chance to do something else. Stephen McFeely knows Marvel Comics very well. He therefore opted for a thorough reference, which is pretty cool for fans of comics. McFeely had this to say about why he wanted the film to take place after a time jump.
