Forward of all of the MCU heroes who had beforehand been Snapped away returning through portals, Cap discovered himself going through Thanos alone in a very thrilling second that showcased Steve’s lack of ability to surrender on a struggle.

Endgame additionally served as Steve’s ultimate MCU journey. Followers knew he could be departing by the top of the movie and questioned precisely how his story would finish.

Thanos has confirmed to be one of the vital highly effective Marvel characters to ever seem within the MCU, which is a powerful feat when one remembers characters like Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
