The snap took place (bringing them back) and then Thanos appear and blew the #$&@#% out of their HQ. They then had to dig out of the rubble and get together outside it and then fight thanos for a bit BEFORE Strange ported them to the fight. So theoretically there was a whopping hour or so between the event for them to get them together and explain everything. Still seems like a tall task in the that timeframe, but they may not have known they'd be gone much at all, so you save that bit and tell them the fight is on.

The thing I didn't get is how they all snapped back knowing exactly where to be and what to do to take down Thanos. Wouldn't they all just be disoriented? Yet they looked like they had been planning this attack while they were all in ash-ville.
I'm cool with this. Most of them we're already in mid-fight with Thanos when they were 'blipped' - so I imagine they're still ready to go at it. Most probably have no idea what happened. Plus, there probably was a quick briefing by the wizards... "Thanos is still at it, we need to get him. I'm gonna take you to him and the other Avengers - get ready to kick ass."

So what if Endgame fell just shy of the two combined theatrical releases of Avatar? Avatar’s first release was beaten by Endgame a long time ago. In fact, if we consider this simply part 2 of Infinity War, one can argue that the Endgame and IW box office numbers should be combined which puts Avatar even farther in the dust.




I don’t like James Cameron.

It's not that I don't like Cameron as much as I think Avatar's a mediocre film. Terminator 2 and Aliens are darn good movies... heck, even add the Abyss to that.
Avatar was certainly a big disappointment after a winning track record but Cameron lost me when he started publicly putting down the superhero genre and the MCU as infantile and unoriginal - all this coming from a guy who once wanted to do a Spider-Man movie. I don’t mind him having an opinion but it was as if he was irked so much he was trying to convince the general public to boycott superhero movies. He was so arrogantly and passionately against superhero films it would have been poetic to have seen his baby taken down by the MCU.

I don't like James Cameron.

In today's world of 24/7 news and a million different websites looking to make a headline, I can't really fault Cameron. 20 years ago, he might've said the same thing and it just slipped by... today? It's a different world with a different media.

I'm not saying Cameron is correct with what he said - I'm just saying that it's most likely blown out of proportion. But, he also does come off as somewhat arrogant... so who knows?

Dr. Strange saw the outcome of that end battle, so he knew where to go. He had enough time to get the wizards together, notify everyone and plan the attack.
