Kevin Feige confirms Avengers: Endgame's mid-air Snap victims are OK - Tue 13 Aug 18:17 GMT

When it comes to explaining away one of the movie's biggest logic-stretches, the Marvel chief says Smart Hulk ain't so stupid…

  With Avengers: Endgame – aka the official biggest film of all time – hitting home ents in the US this week and making its way to UK living rooms soon, it seems that Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige is on a tireless one-man mission to repromo the movie.

  And by 'repromo the movie', we mean explain away every little potential plot-hole so that we can all get to sleep a little bit easier at night/enjoy the film for what it is – a great piece of blockbuster entertainment and an impressive culmination of 22 movies worth of shared-universe storytelling.

  Basically, the question on everyone's (some people's) lips was this: if you disappeared mid-air, would you reappear in the exact same place mid-air five years later, when the Hulk undid Thanos' handiwork (just as people on the ground did)?

  Thankfully, according to Feige, Smart Hulk was acutely aware of this potential 'raining people' disaster and definitely factored it into his magic wishlist when he slipped on the new Infinity Gauntlet and performed his successful anti-Snap.

  Speaking during an exclusive post-screening Empire Q&A last week, Feige reassured everyone that the aerial survivors of 'The Blip' were indeed safe and sound.

  “They didn't fall to their deaths because Smart Hulk is smart, and when he snapped...You can wish for whatever you want and you can wish for everyone to come back safely.

  Endgame hits digital download in the UK on 19 August, with a release on physical media formats following on 2 September.
