Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd were filming Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and this film at the same time.
Even though Captain Marvel (2019) was released one month before this film, Brie Larson shot her scenes for this movie first.
As they did with the previous film, the Russo Brothers wrote a letter to fans, asking them not to spoil anything about the movie, as part of a viral campaign on the internet. The hashtags were #DontSpoilTheEndgame and #ThanosDemandsYourSilence.
Avengers: Endgame (2019) became the biggest pre-sale title ever on Fandango and Atom Tickets sites, causing them to crash minutes after the sales were announced. It accomplished this feat in only six hours. Some theaters across the world had so many sold-out showtimes on the opening weekend that Cinemark, Regal, and AMC theaters chose to add new overnight screenings so that they would be working around the clock to accommodate extra shows.
Since his introduction in the Marvel Cinematic universe, Chris Evans has appeared as Steve Rogers/Captain America in one film a year, except for 2015, where he appears twice, totaling eleven times. He has starred in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), an uncredited cameo in Thor: The Dark World (2013) (though here he plays Loki disguised as Captain America), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), an uncredited cameo in Ant-Man (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), a special cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), an uncredited cameo in Captain Marvel (2019), and Avengers: Endgame (2019). In October 2018, Evans officially announced via Twitter that he expressed great satisfaction in being involved in the franchise for almost a decade.
Robert Downey Jr. officially surpassed Hugh Jackman's record for most appearances in film as the same superhero, with ten. He set this record in only 11 years, whereas Jackman did it in 17.

In the early Avengers comics, Clint Barton sheds his Hawkeye identity to become the original Goliath. As Goliath, he used Pym Particles to grow in size. In "Endgame", he is the first Avenger to test the Pym Particles - a nod to his comics history. Bill Foster (featured in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)) later became the second Goliath.

(In fact, the film's subtitle, "Endgame," can be made out by the shapes and layout of the objects in the image.)

The North American release date was moved up a week earlier, from May 3rd to April 26, 2019, after the first trailer and title released on December 7, 2018. There was much speculation that Marvel Studios would do this, as they moved Avengers: Infinity War (2018)'s release up a week as well, in order to reduce the possibility of major plot leaks from countries that released the film earlier.

This is the fourth time the MCU movies visit Norway, and the third time visiting the Norwegian city of Tønsberg. Tønsberg appears in Thor (2011), and is the place where the Tessaract is found in the beginning of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). In Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Tony Stark visits Oslo, the capital of Norway. Tønsberg is the oldest city in Norway, dating back to 871, and has roots the Norse era.

In Marvel Comics, there was a period of time where Bruce Banner's consciousness embodied the Hulk's physical body. This however, was achieved through a joint effort of Doctor Strange and Bruce's longtime friend, Dr. Leonard Samson (who was also irradiated by gamma rays). The result, however, was different than what's seen in the film. Instead of a balanced Bruce Banner/Hulk as we see in "Endgame", Samson and Strange managed to merge the three consciousnesses of Hulk (Green), Joe Fixit (Grey), and Bruce Banner so that whenever Bruce was in control, the Hulk's body would surface. But if he lost his temper and the Savage Hulk persona came out, he would transform into the diminutive body of Bruce Banner.

Following the Time Skip, Thor has established a "New Asgard" for the surviving Asgardian refugees in Norway. This is similar to the plot of J. Michael Straczynski's Thor run, which saw Thor rebuilding Asgard in Oklahoma after the events of Ragnarok. Thor having become a drunken, disheveled wreck with long, messy hair was inspired by Jason Aaron's Thor (2014) run. In addition, New Asgard is located in Tønsberg, Norway, a location previously seen in the prologue sequences of both Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).

The subtitle "Endgame" had been speculated due to the phrase "We're in the Endgame now" by Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). This theory seemed to be confirmed after someone looked up cinematographer Trent Opaloch's profile and noticed "Avengers: Endgame" in his list of projects; however, that was automatically changed and the Russos denied the title. Later on, the first trailer officially confirmed Endgame to be the title.

When the Russo Brothers tweeted out a photo of the re-shoot cast, Yvette Nicole Brown from Community (2009) was in that photo, making her at least the fourth cast member from "Community" to appear in a Russo Bros. MCU film, following Danny Pudi and D.C. Pierson in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Jim Rash in Captain America: Civil War (2016). (Fellow "Community" star Ken Jeong also appears in this film, as does Brie Larson, who guest-starred in a few episodes of the show.) Before their work with Marvel Studios, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo were known for their work producing and directing TV comedies, including "Community", where they served as executive producers during the first three seasons. (Elsewhere in the MCU, "Community" star Donald Glover appears in the non-Russo Bros. film Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), as the criminal Spider-Man tries to interrogate.)

Carol's new look after the time skip is inspired by the comics on two counts. Her short hair has been carried over from her modern design, as has the red sash she wears as a belt. Her new red costume with black shoulder-pads is lifted directly from Captain Mar-Vell's, Carol's predecessor. Additionally, it's subtle, but Carol showing concern for Rhodey and telling him to be safe is a reference to their recent romantic relationship in the comics.

Larson played the rock star Envy Adams (Scott's (Michael Cera's) ex-girlfriend), and Evans played the action movie star Lucas Lee (one of Ramona's (Mary Elizabeth Winstead's) Seven Evil Exes). In addition, that movie was directed and co-written by Edgar Wright, who wrote the original screenplay for Ant-Man (2015) (a character who also appears in this movie), but dropped out as director for that movie due to his creative clashes with Marvel Studios.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

At Tony Stark's funeral, a teenage boy is seen standing behind Scarlet Witch and Bucky. This is Harley Keener (Ty Simpkins), the boy from Iron Man 3 (2013) who let Tony use his shed when he needed to repair his Iron Man suit.
In The Avengers (2012), Captain America tells Iron Man, "You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play," and Iron Man tells Captain America, "Everything special about you came out of a bottle." In this movie, each proves the other wrong. Iron Man sacrifices himself to defeat Thanos, while Captain America proves himself worthy by being able to wield Thor's hammer, Mjolnir.

Captain America wielding Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, comes from the comics, where Steve Rogers has proven himself worthy by the enchantment cast on the hammer. This also marks the second film where Steve Rogers makes an attempt to wield Mjolnir. The first was in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), though in that film he was only able to move the hammer slightly off the table. That subtle movement was noticed by Thor. Director Joss Whedon hinted in an interview that Rogers had been able to lift the hammer the whole time, but didn't, so as to not hurt his friend Thor's feelings.
The iconic comic book line "Avengers Assemble!" is finally said on screen by Captain America prior to the final battle. This was teased at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), but the film cuts to the credits before the line is fully spoken.

In the final battle, Thanos breaks Captain America's shield in half, fulfilling the prophecy in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Also shown in the vision is Hulk injured and unable to fight, similar to Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Black Widow dead in the same position as she dies in "Endgame", and Thor appearing to be dead in the same position as when Thanos wounds him with Stormbreaker in the final battle.
Edwin Jarvis, played by James D'Arcy, becomes the first character in the MCU to be introduced in a Marvel TV series and make an appearance in a movie. The character was first introduced in Agent Carter: Now Is Not the End (2015) and was a regular cast member on Agent Carter (2015). This also marks the first time the original Jarvis is seen in a film, as he had been replaced by the computer program J.A.R.V.I.S. (voiced by Paul Bettany) in previous films.

In the funeral scene, Morgan asks for a cheeseburger and Happy smirks and says that her father loved cheeseburgers. This is a reference to Tony Stark requesting "an American cheeseburger" upon arrival at the press conference, after escaping from the cave in Iron Man (2008).
Similar to what was done with Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg in Captain Marvel (2019), digital de-aging was also applied in this film to make Stan Lee look younger for his cameo appearance, which would take place in 1970. Digital de-aging was also applied to Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) for his 1970 appearance, and has been used in several Marvel Studios films to create noticeably younger versions of characters for certain scenes (such as Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War (2016), Douglas's Pym in Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), and Michelle Pfeiffer's Janet Van Dyne in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)).

In a lighthearted scene toward the end of the film, Thor joins Star-Lord and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy and calls the team the "Asgardians of the Galaxy". Thor: Ragnarok (2017) was frequently and humorously referred to as "Asgardians of the Galaxy", due to the film's tonal similarities with Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). A Marvel comic titled "Asgardians of the Galaxy" debuted in September 2018, featuring a team of Asgard-related characters including Angela, Valkyrie, Kevin Masterson, Throg, Skurge, and the Destroyer.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Peter mistakes Tony's reaching for the car door as an attempt to hug him. When Peter returns the gesture with a hug, Tony responds, "That's not a hug; I'm just grabbing the door for you. We're not, we're not there yet." In "Endgame" (2019), when Peter and Tony are reunited, Tony immediately pulls him in for a hug.

Steve Rogers dupes the Hydra agents into believing he's an undercover Hydra agent himself. This comes from the "Secret Empire" comic storyline, where Rogers is revealed to have been a member of Hydra. (It was later revealed to have been an alternate version of Steve Rogers whose history had been rewritten by the personified Cosmic Cube, Kobik.)

Anthony Mackie was surprised to learn about his character's ending as Falcon was and, as if by fate, he learned this info from none other than, Chris Evans himself. He stated in an interview: "We were at his house and Chris goes, 'You excited?' And I go, 'What are you talking about?'" Mackie told IMDB in a recent interview. "He goes, 'You don't know?!' And he jumps up, runs out of the room, and comes back in with the script, We cried. We drank. We laughed," Mackie said. "I am very happy I got that moment with Chris, for him to not only pass me the shield, but to tell me it was happening."

"New Asgard" is actually a village in the southern borders region of Scotland, called St Abbs. Thor can be seen drinking Innis and Gunn, a beer brewed in Scotland. Other hints to Scotland in this scene are the bottle of Irn Bru on the windowsill, and the golf club behind Thor's head. (In the comics, after its Ragnarok destruction, Asgard was rebuilt on Earth, outside of Broxton, Oklahoma.)

The somber ending to Avengers: Infinity War (2018) was going to be this film's beginning; had that been the case, "Infinity War" would have ended with Thanos completing the Infinity Gauntlet, before actually using it in this movie. However, the creative teams working on the two films decided that it best suited the story to have the actual cliffhanger follow the finger snap itself and to show its fallout before, making viewers wait a year to see how the story would be resolved.

Clint Barton appears in Japan with the identity of Ronin in this film. This is based on the comics, where, in the aftermath of the "Civil War" event, he took up the Ronin identity during a mission to Japan with the New Avengers to save Echo (Maya Lopez), who had been the previous Ronin. Barton has a tattoo of a ronin on his arm, as a further homage.

When Captain America is going to the Quantum Realm to return the Infinity Stones, he asks Bucky not to do anything stupid. Bucky replies by saying, "How can I? You are taking all the stupid with you." This is the exact dialogue between the characters from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). The only change is that, in that movie, Bucky is going to war and asks Steve not to do anything stupid. Steve gives the same reply.

With this film, along with Captain America: Civil War (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Tom Holland breaks Tobey Maguire's record for playing Spider-Man in live-action movies the most times.
Set photos leaked showing Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston wearing outfits and costumes from the first Avengers film, as well as the rubble-filled New York set where the final battle of The Avengers (2012) is set. This led many to believe that either a flashback sequence or time travel would play a major role in this film. The fact that Ant-Man was seen among these characters created speculation that he would be the one to travel back in time by means of the Quantum Realm; this theory seemed all the more likely after the mid-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), where he becomes trapped in the Quantum Realm after receiving the warning to avoid the time vortex. This hypothesis was indeed confirmed to be the case as the Avengers build their own quantum tunnel designed for time travel so that they can retrieve the Infinity stones from the past after Thanos destroyed them in the present.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson's character, Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff, was seen in set pics of this film, hinting that he might return or just briefly make an appearance in a flashback scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). In the final cut of the movie, he is missing.

This pays tribute to Rhodes being the first one to find Tony in the desert and the beginning of him being Iron man. Rhodes is also the first one to find him at the end of him being Iron Man. Also, it reverses Tony being the first to find the severely injured Rhodey after the airport battle in Civil War.

The 2012 version of Thor using Mjolnir as a magical defibrillator is straight out of the comics, where he has done this several times in the past, sometimes even summoning entire bolts of lightning for more sturdy patients. Of course, in the comics Thor actually has extensive medical knowledge from his time living as Dr. Donald Blake, so he actually knows what he's doing.

When asked how Cap was worthy to lift Mjolnir, according to Anthony Russo, he's always been worthy, and during that moment in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), he stopped himself from lifting the hammer fully out of deference to Thor: "In our heads he was able to wield it, and he didn't know that until that moment in 'Ultron' when he tried to pick it up. But Cap's sense of character and his sense of humility, sort of out of deference to Thor's ego, you know Cap in that moment, realizing he can move the hammer, decides not to."

Anthony Mackie went on to discuss just how much being the new Captain America means to him, and the general vibe on-set when he shot the scene. "It means a lot to me for my sons to see Captain America as a black dude, and for me to be that dude for my sons," Mackie said. "So that moment was not just, 'Hey, we're acting.' It was more, and then they cut and I cried. And Chris cried. And the Russos cried. And everyone cried. It was an emotional day." So uh, yeah just when I thought I was emotionally stable again after seeing this movie, I'm now sobbing profusely at my work desk. I think I speak for everyone when I say we salute you, Captain America, forever and always.

It shows that Steve Rogers wishes he had never been frozen or famous, just returned to Brooklyn after the war to grow old in anonymity. This is exactly what Steve does when he goes back in time and rekindles his life with Peggy.

In Captain America: Civil War (2016), when Hawkeye and Black Panther first meet and fight, Clint pauses and says, "We haven't met yet. I'm Clint," to which T'Challa replies, "I don't care." That is the first and only time they meet before T'Challa disappears at the end of Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

The next time they meet is in this movie, during the final battle scene. When Ronin/Clint surfaces with the new Gauntlet, T'Challa comes to his aid and finally calls him by his name, indicating the evolution of their relationship from adversaries to allies.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was supposed to confront his 2012 self, but the idea was ultimately scrapped, as revealed by directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo. While it was Captain America (Chris Evans) who had a direct entanglement with himself from the events of The Avengers (2012)'s Battle of New York from 2012, and Nebula (Karen Gillan) with her evil counterpart from 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), apparently Thor was supposed to have his own similar moment in "Endgame". Speaking with MTV's podcast, the Russos said that the initial plan was to have a Thor vs. Thor confrontation in Asgard. However, they felt like "it overly complicated [the plot]", adding that they also liked the "Cap vs. Cap better", so they gave up the bit. Instead, they gave Thor a different experience when he went back in time - another chance to talk to his mom and properly say goodbye to her, commenting, "I think there, we also deferred to the storyline between Thor and his mother. [It] was so resonant, that we really wanted to run... That was really more a part of Thor's journey and repair than confronting his former self. So that's really what happened there, why we went with that."

Co-director Joe Russo was asked about the injury sustained by the Hulk when using the makeshift Iron Gauntlet to snap everyone back to life, his arm in a sling during Tony Stark's funeral, and it appears this isn't something he'll be able to heal from. Joe Russo explained: "He's lost an arm. He lost Natasha. That's not coming back. He's damaged himself. I don't know. It's interesting. That's permanent damage, the same way that it was permanent damage with Thanos. It's irreversible damage. His arm, if you noticed, is a lot skinnier. It's blackened. So, he loses a lot of strength there."

This is a callback to Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), where Hope admits she was angry with Scott for not asking her to help during the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016). Also, she calls him Cap instead of the full "Captain America". In Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), she had made fun of Scott for doing the same. Back then, he had replied that it's what Cap's friends call him.

When Red Skull meets Clint, he calls him "son of Edith", despite having called Thanos, Gamora, and Natasha the child of their respective father. In the comics, Harold Barton was abusive and an alcoholic. Clint and Nat's "fight" for the Soul Stone (requiring the death of someone you love) recalls their turbulent relationship in the comics. Nat sacrificing herself for Clint to obtain the Soul Stone (which eventually revives his family) is the direct opposite of the Ultimates where Black Widow is the one who killed Clint's family.

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 (2017) star Katherine Langford. Much like Thanos's conversation with a young Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), 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."

When Bruce asked Tony for what purpose the Hulk would have saved him, Tony said they will find out. "Endgame" gives the answer to the question, as Bruce (now fused with the Hulk) is the only one capable of using the Gauntlet to bring everyone back.

Captain America is shown going through the miniaturized time heist machine to deliver all six Infinity Stones and Mjolnir to their respective locations in the past from where the Avengers borrowed them earlier in the movie. It's interesting to note that the Soul Stone which Clint brought from Vormir, after Natasha sacrificed herself for it, is guarded by Johann Schmidt a.k.a. Red Skull, who is the main nemesis of Captain America from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Captain returning in the end, delivering all the Stones to their respective places, indicates that he interacted with Red Skull, which isn't mentioned or shown in the movie.

Red roots with blonde tips tell us she deemed it unnecessary to keep dying her hair blonde after the events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), but also didn't dye her blonde hair back to red because she was too busy trying to do her best as the de facto director of the Avengers.

While he does not say it, Captain America being the last man standing and being ready to fight Thanos and his army, even though the odds are against him, calls back to the moment in the "Infinity Gauntlet" comic where Cap tells Thanos that as long one man is left standing, he has not won yet. Additionally, Thanos destroys Cap's shield during their battle, which is something that also happens in the original comic. During the final battle, Thanos spins his double-bladed sword in front of him like the rotor blade of a helicopter, referencing his "Thanoscopter" from the comics.

Hawkeye has become the darker and edgier vigilante Ronin after losing his family when Thanos wiped out half of the universe's population. This mirrors the events of The Ultimates 3, where Hawkeye donned a new costume and adopted a more violent, suicidal attitude after his family was murdered in The Ultimates 2. It also refers to the 616 version taking on the Ronin identity post "Civil War". As the vigilante Ronin, Clint's take-no-prisoners attitude against criminals after the death of his family makes him similar to the Punisher, another character who frequently partners with Black Widow.

Despite rampant rumors that it may happen, due to Fox being acquired by Disney, no non-MCU characters appear in the film (X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, etc.). There is also no indication as to how these characters may be incorporated in the future.

At one point, Tony Stark calls a more "casual" version of Thor "Lebowski". In the first Iron Man (2008) movie, the character of Obadiah Stane, who is Tony Stark/Iron Man's mentor/friend/nemesis, was played by Jeff Bridges, who is very well-known for playing Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, the main character of the movie The Big Lebowski (1998).

During the "Five Years Later" sequence, there is a shot of Citi Field, the stadium of the New York Mets baseball team. Later, the grieving man in Captain America's support group says he misses the Mets. The movie references the Mets because the team did promotional tie-ins with Marvel based on pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who was nicknamed "Thor" for his resemblance to the character. The Mets had done giveaway days of such items as Syndergaard Thor bobblehead dolls and T-shirts.

When Thanos attacks the Avengers HQ and the entire building collapses, the Hulk holds up the rubble, saving War Machine and Rocket Raccoon until Ant-Man comes to the rescue. This is a reference to the comic book miniseries "Secret Wars", in which the Beyonder takes a number of villains and heroes from Earth and puts them on a planet to fight each other. During one of the early battles, Molecule Man drops a 150-billion-ton mountain on the heroes and the Hulk is able to hold up the entire mountain by himself until they figure out how to get out.

Pepper's Rescue armor is purple, which is what it was colored in the Iron Man: Armored Adventures (2008) cartoon rather than the comics. The female heroes joining together to help Captain Marvel get to the quantum tunnel serves as a nod to the comics' A-Force, first introduced in "Secret Wars" (2015).

Thanos's Infinity Gauntlet was worn on the left hand. When Tony Stark creates a new gauntlet, it is worn on the right hand. Swapping hands symbolizes the reversal of Thanos's snap, for which the new gauntlet was created.

When Thor decapitates Thanos at the start of the movie, Rocket asks him what he did. Thor sadly tells him, "I went for the head," to echo Thanos's taunt from the previous movie. It shows how Thor is still reeling from his previous mistake.

Steve tells his support group that they need to move on after the Snap, and make something of what they have left. Otherwise, Thanos might as well have killed all of them. When the Avengers demonstrate their complete inability to do just that, Thanos comes to this exact conclusion, changing his plans from "50%" to "100%".

Even though this is the fourth Avengers film, this is the first film that contains all members of the original lineup that appeared in Avengers #1 (1963). Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Giant-Man/Ant-Man, and the Wasp were the founding members. Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne were Ant-Man & Wasp in the comic at the time, not Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne. Hank and Janet do appear, though, in this film. Loki was the main antagonist in the first issue, and also makes an appearance in the film. Captain America didn't join the team until Issue 4; however, he was later given founding member status.

The finale has Thor dual-wielding Mjolnir and Stormbreaker, similar to the climax of Jason Aaron's "The God Butcher/Godbomb" story where Thor dual-wields the hammers of his present and future selves at the same time. It also recalls the scene from Jonathan Hickman's Avengers where the Unworthy Thor uses both his axe and an alternate Mjölnir that previously belonged to a Mirror Universe version of Thor during the battle against the Beyonders.

In the final battle when all the MCU heroes show up, Ant-Man emerges as Giant-Man and carries the Hulk in his palm. This was a reference to the Super Bowl Coke commercial from 2016, when the two were reversed in size. In the ad, Ant-Man stole a mini Coke can from the Hulk, then had to help him open it.

One of the shapes that Tony Stark tries when he is running simulations of his time travel 'GPS' - and eventually, the successful one - is a Möbius strip. This is a object that it loops back on itself. This is a bit of foreshadowing of his death at the end of the movie, since this part of the MCU began with Iron Man (2008), and it ends with his sacrifice.

The concept of Captain America permanently going back to his time in the 1940s to be with Peggy Carter after the final battle, and his later appearance as an old man in the present, is similar to Bucky Barnes's Ultimate Marvel counterpart. In that version, Bucky survived WWII and married Cap's ex-girlfriend Gail Richards, and later appeared in the present as an old man after Cap was thawed out, as seen in the first issue of the Ultimates (the Ultimate Marvel version of the Avengers) and its later animated film adaption, Ultimate Avengers (2006).

Nebula's significant screentime in this movie is true to the comics on how she was instrumental in Thanos's downfall in "Infinity Gauntlet". 2014-Nebula being Thanos's lackey who sets up the final battle is the closest the MCU has to Terraxia, Thanos's Distaff Counterpart created via the Infinity Gauntlet.

Thanos in both Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and "Endgame" has a left-handed gauntlet that carries the Infinity Stones, whereas Hulk/Bruce Banner and Iron Man/Tony Stark both use a right-handed gauntlet with the Infinity Stones, perhaps symbolizing their different ideologies.

The security guard at the storage facility where Scott Lang returns from the Quantum Realm is seen reading a book named "Terminal Beach", by J.G. Ballard. It was published in 1964 as a compilation of twelve sci-fi short-tales: "Terminal Beach" (hence the name), "A Question of Re-entry", "The Drowned Giant", "The Illuminated Man", "The Reptile Enclosure", "The Delta at Sunset", "Deep End", "The Volcano Dances", "Billennium", "The Gioconda of the Twilight Noon", "The Lost Leonardo", and finally "End-Game".

In the film's epilogue, Ned is shown wearing a t-shirt featuring the titular character from The Iron Giant (1999). That film was very loosely based on Ted Hughes' 1968 novel coincidentally entitled "The Iron Man". The film features a giant metallic man who ultimately sacrifices himself to save the world, vaguely referencing Iron Man's ultimate fate here. Vin Diesel (Groot) provided the voice of the Iron Giant.

In the 1970 sequence, a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent describes Tony Stark as having a "Mungo Jerry" beard. Mungo Jerry were a British skiffle revival band who had a massive international hit in 1970 with "In The Summertime," and whose members indeed sported well-sculpted facial hair. Ironically, lead singer Ray Dorset had what can only be described as the opposite of Tony Stark - the extremely long sideburns not unlike those later made famous by Wolverine from the X-Men.

Several elements are adapted from the comics for what happens to Captain America at the end of the film in regards to his decision to return to the 1940s and later appearance as an old man where he passes his shield and title to Sam Wilson.

-"Ultimates" (2002): Adapts several elements of Bucky's Ultimate Marvel counterpart of living over several decades after World War II and later appearing in the present as an old man.

-"House of M" (2005): Steve Rogers living the quiet life with Peggy Carter rather than being a superhero.

-"The Tomorrow Soldier" (2014): After Steve Rogers becomes an old man, he passes on his shield and title as Captain America to Sam Wilson (Falcon).

It is the third Avengers movie to be released in the same year as a Quentin Tarantino movie: The Avengers (2012) and Django Unchained (2012) were both released in 2012, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and The Hateful Eight (2015) were both released in 2015, and "Avengers: Endgame" and Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood (2019) are both being released in 2019. Actor Samuel L. Jackson had a role in at least the first five of these six films (although rumors have circulated that he will also have an appearance in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"), being a frequent Tarantino collaborator and playing Nick Fury in the MCU.
The Stark Gauntlet is analogous to the Odinsword/Odin-weapons as the Avengers' Infinity +1 Sword.

Thor travels back to the events portrayed in Thor: The Dark World (2013). That film also featured Alice Krige, who appeared in the final episode of Star Trek: Voyager (1995) - also called "Star Trek: Voyager: Endgame (2001)" - as the Borg Queen. The story of that episode is an acknowledged influence on this film, and her own role strongly paralleled that of Thanos.

Just after the time skip to five years later, we see Steve Rogers leading a support group for people who have lost loved ones following Thanos' attack, attempting to help people move on. This seems to mirror Sam Wilson's appearance in The Winter Soldier, in which he leads a support group for veterans at the local VA. This seems to foreshadow the idea that both Sam and Steve have similar roles for people in times of crisis, which helps explain why Steve passes his mantle on to Sam at the end of the film.
