Does Avengers: endgame have too many coincidences?
Fans finally had the chance to see Avengers: Endgame over the past week and as anticipated, the film is one heck of an exhilarating, emotional rollercoaster ride that eulogizes the book on the first decade of the MCU in some style.
In addition to immense ongoing box-office performance, the film also has a fair few plot holes and as it turns out things aren’t making sense; as the story relies on far too many coincidences. Sure, even the best movies have some key moments that rely on accidents and that you just have to accept, but it feels like there are a few too many in Avengers 4 to be swallowed, and here are some of those moments that calls for attention.

We can accept the fact that Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is a cosmic hero who helps out the people of any given universe when they’re in need, and that’s fine, but the odds of her stumbling upon these dying Avengers at the exact right moment are pretty incredible and a bit too fateful.
B) How Do All of the Heroes Survive Thanos’ Air Strike on Avengers HQ?

When the purple giant arrives in the post infinity war timeline, he launches a full-scale attack on the Avengers’ compound, completely destroying it in the process.

Though, none of the characters inside are killed or even too badly injured. This makes sense for the super-humans among them, but for regular folks like Ant-Man or Hawkeye, it seems they got quite the favor from the writing members.
C) Who Is to Say the Real Hero Is; the Rat or The Avengers, themselves?

Ant-Man only gets out of the Quantum Realm because some random rodent crawls across the controls in his long-forgotten van. If Scott hadn’t escaped, the heroes wouldn’t have had the idea of time travel and therefore, they couldn’t have reversed the decimation. So, basically, this rat is the greatest Avenger the universe ever had and we all owe it a huge debt.

Now, you could argue that this is why Doctor Strange only envisioned the Avengers winning one out of 14 million possible futures because all of these blessed coincidences had to happen in one timeline. From a critical standpoint, however, you can’t help but wonder if more creative alternatives for these Endgame plot points couldn’t have been thought up by the writers.
