We Finally Know Why Black Panther Returned First After The Snap


In Avengers: Endgame, the dusted heroes arrive
just in time to assist the surviving Avengers in taking down Thanos. Just as Captain America thought he’d have
to go it alone, portals begin opening across the sky. The very first hero to step through is Black
Panther, and we finally know why. Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo recently
revealed during a Reddit Ask Me Anything session that the King of Wakanda wasn’t technically
the top choice to return first, Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon, was. Joe and his filmmaking brother Anthony Russo
wanted Sam to be the first person to communicate with Captain America during the battle with
Thanos. “Cap, it’s Sam. Can you hear me? On your left.” Since Sam was fighting in Wakanda when he
disintegrated in Avengers: Infinity War, the directors knew that they needed to have the
Wakandan portal be the first one to open up after Professor Hulk’s Snap. Given that Sam isn’t the most important person
in Wakanda, T’Challa wound up being the first hero to emerge. In Endgame, Sam is the hero who is heard first,
telling Cap through his communications device that the heroes are arriving to his left,
but Black Panther is the first one seen. Russo added that: “We spent a lot of time in the edit room playing
around with the sequencing of the portals. We probably didn’t lock that section of the
movie until about a month before the film was in theaters. We always wanted Sam to be the first one to
communicate with Cap via his comm and Sam was last in Wakanda, so logically the first
portal that would open would be the Wakandan portal…the first person that would logically
walk through a portal from Wakanda would be the king himself, bringing his army once again
to the defense of Cap and the world.” Joe added on the audio commentary track included
on the digital release of Avengers: Endgame: “Who else would you want to have your back
in this moment other than T’Challa and Wakanda?” Sam letting Cap know that he’s got someone
coming in on his left is also a reference to a fan-favorite moment in Captain America:
The Winter Soldier, in which the Star-Spangled Avenger keeps lapping Sam on their run. “Don’t you say it, don’t you say it.” “On your left.” “Come on!” In the end, Black Panther being chosen as
the first hero to return after Professor Hulk’s Snap wasn’t down to some big, emotional reason. It wasn’t even due to T’Challa and Wakanda
being some of the Avengers’ most loyal allies. The real explanation has a lot more to do
with logistics. They wanted Sam to communicate with Cap first,
Sam was in Wakanda when he was snapped away into the ether, and Black Panther is the king
of the nation, so he showed up first. Easy breezy. The issue of which hero would return first
after the Snap in Avengers: Endgame wasn’t the only logistical issue the film’s team
had to tackle. Endgame co-writer Stephen McFeely revealed
on the Endgame commentary track that he and his writing partner Christopher Markus wrote
a version of the script in which the heroes came back and were shown immediately: “Just on an act-construction level, we were
faced with a strange problem where we needed two snaps of the Gauntlet and asked ourselves
often, ‘What does it mean to bring everybody back?’…We certainly tried a version where
everyone came back and you knew it immediately, and there they were…Doing that prevented
us from a really heroic reveal.” And what a heroic reveal it wound up being. Black Panther entering alongside Shuri and
Okoye, then giving Captain America a knowing nod as Sam flies overhead? We’re getting chills just thinking about it. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about the MCU

  1. Spider-Man’s return got the most cheers in the theater. As much as I personally don’t like Sam, or their choice to give him the shield, I like how they did this.

  2. Here the real question. If the blip bring people from dust where exactly they dusted. Where people in the avengers base were snap in infinity war? There are people in the avengers base when thanos snap decimation right?

  3. Feel like you repeated the same thing three times about Sam. I’m more interested in ‘why did they want Sam to be the first thorough?’

  4. Channel name makes sense now, same revelation looped three times in the same video. It’s like you said it three times. The point was made three times! This comment is like this video.

  5. But how did he open a portal from wakanda first when Doctor strange was on Titan? That part was never explained. Plus Doctor strange dosent know about wakanda. MCU has some explaining to do.

  6. He didnt come back first.. or at least its not shown that he did. He only came through the portal Strange created first.

  7. I saw the title and I was like "hmmm…I dont know maybe the same exact reason everyone else came back ya genius"

  8. What makes you think Black Panther came back first? The entire fight before caps shield broke, they were back and gathering their respective armies, Strange had to jump between all the different and scattered Avengers to group them up

  9. They wanted Falcon to talk first



    They wanted Falcon to talk first



    They wanted Falcon to talk first




  10. So in Endgame…Hawkeye’s wife calls him seconds after the hulk snap. From her phone. That she found. Charged. Did hawkeye keep paying the electric bill while he was on his murder spree and keep her service on and phone plugged in? Did the phone get snapped with her and if so why didnt bucky get to keep his weapon. AND did they just leave bucky’s weapon loaded where it dropped so when he picked it up he just stepped through the portal? Did someone open a random portal in San Francisco on the roof of a building for Wasp? Suspension of disbelief was strong in this moment lol

  11. Ya talk about making a video out of nothing at all. There is a lot of content to cover around, stop wasting people’s time. You never know your next video will be why we don’t see all the stars going to shit in Avengers – oh because there isn’t enough screen time left!

  12. I actually never gave it a thought. It doesnt matter to me. I enjoy and love the MCU and marvel itself as a whole as well.

  13. He did because the portal to wakanda opened first and he was king so he led them through. This is doodle content.

  14. Ghost rider is a marvel character.. By no one is remembering him.. N why he wasn't in the Avengers… N why theres no news about him or any of his movie??

  15. We finally know who..
    We finally know what..
    We finally know when..
    We finally know how..
    We finally know.. NO, just stfu Looper. We getting sick of yo shit, smh..

  16. It still should have been Bucky first. Sam says the thing, Bucky steps through. Cuz even when Steve had nothing he had Bucky. Then everyone else comes through. FFS Steve and Bucky, who fought a war together, didn't get a single moment between them during the battle while every other character part of a team did.

  17. These guys are brilliant! 👍👍👍👍👍 their imagination is incredible! They keep me on edge for the next project. MCU FOREVER!✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️

  18. Question? Was that Okoya next to T'Challa? She did not die in the Snap. Why did she portal in with him and Shuri?
