Trivia: One of the time-travel movies referenced by Ant-Man is "Hot Tub Time Machine", which featured Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky in the MCU. In fact several of the films or franchises mentioned during the scene feature MCU stars. "Star Trek" had Chris Hemsworth in a small role in the 2009 film (If Inhumans still counts as MCU, then Anson Mount has been on Star Trek Discovery). Scott mentions 'Die Hard, ' which had Samuel L. Jackson in the third film. Interestingly, they don't mention Doctor Who, which has featured myriad MCU actors over the years, including Karen Gillan (Nebula), Christopher Eccleston (Malaketh the Dark Elf), and David Tenant (The Purple Man).

Trivia: Near the start, Okoye submits a report about an earthquake in the Atlantic, saying they should leave it alone. This is a potential tease for Namor the Sub-Mariner, ruler of Atlantis. This has been hinted at before, with a map in Iron Man 2 showing a point of interest in the Atlantic - the same map which flagged up Wakanda long before the official introduction of Black Panther.

Trivia: Ken Jeong and Yvette Nicole Brown have cameos in the film. The two co-starred in the TV sitcom "Community," which "Endgame" directors Joe and Anthony Russo both worked on.

Trivia: Spoilers: Captain America being worthy of lifting Thor's hammer Mjölnir is something that is pulled from the pages of the comics directly, most notably in this context the Civil War comics. He'd previously been able to move it fractionally in Age of Ultron - Joss Whedon has implied he was able to lift it the whole time, just pretended he couldn't so as to spare Thor's feelings.

Trivia: Spoiler! After Tony snaps his fingers at the end, a scene was filmed with him having a vision of his daughter Morgan, now grown up, played by 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford. Much like Thanos' conversation with a young Gamora in Infinity War, Tony and Morgan would discuss what he'd just done and she'd forgive him, putting him at peace. The scene was ultimately scrapped because there wasn't the emotional connection with an adult version of his daughter, and the Russos dismissed it as "too many ideas in an overly complicated movie."

Continuity mistake: When Thanos is being questioned about where the stones are, Captain Marvel has her arm wrapped around his neck in a headlock and War Machine is holding onto his right arm. Just as Bruce goes to push Thanos over, both Captain Marvel and War Machine suddenly do not have their hands on him. There is no reason that they would have let go of him. Nor would there have been enough time for them to let go of him in between shots. (00:18:10)

More quotes from Avengers: Endgame

Question: If Captain America had to go back to return the infinity stones to balance the timeline, would he not have to go back to before Black Widow died to return the Soul Stone?

Answer: Well since he wouldn't know the exact moment she sacrificed herself, he might have shown up before then and then just had to wait for everything to play itself out before returning the stone.

Answer: No before Black Widow died the soul stone was still there, he had to get it back after it was taken, so after Black Widow died.

I think the poster meant he would go back to the time he knew Black Widow and Hawkeye were aiming for, or a bit before for safety, then go there and wait until Black Widow died and Hawkeye got the stone, and then return it. It would be hard for him to watch, but then he would know when the right time was.

Right. But you also have to think that, having witnessed the events, and then seeing that the Red Skull is the guardian, that would have been a damn interesting scene to watch. Does Cap try bargaining with the Red Skull to return Black Widow to life after giving the stone back? On the other hand, the Ancient One's explanation was that the flow of time occurs simply because the stones are in the universe. I don't think it mattered where they are. She only wanted the time stone back because of how it was tied to the Sanctum. So really, Cap probably could have just thrown the stone in a ditch somewhere and been done with it. It also raises a question about the nature of Vormir as the home of the stone. We see the other stones were more or less fashioned into artifacts and out and about. This implies that they too were in some sort of temple in their raw stone form before being found, seized and manipulated into a real-world application. So does Vormir even have a mechanism for receiving the stone back once it's been claimed? And what is the soul stone's solo power, anyway? Reading people's fates like a crystal ball?

I don't think the red skull is really the red skull anymore, just some kind of ghost of whats left of him. However the stone gets returned is irrelevant, yes he could even just leave it in a ditch somewhere. He didn't return other stones in their original form either, except the time stone. These timelines don't continue on as the original one. According to the comics the soul stone is sentient and everyone sacrificed to obtain is has their soul trapped inside the gem. Cap and the others of course don't know that (although Hulk must theoretically know having used it) or in the MCU this does not apply. When possessing it you can control any life and read their souls (their feelings and desires). One can also revert living things back their original state (like Nebula for example).
