Wrath of God:

By all account sentiment not shared by majority of fandom - so it went nowhere near "go broke" area. Most of watchers rated Endgame high.

  Not sure I got the full vibe of that from endgame.  I was a bit miffed that Thor was a fat ass and professor hulk was a pussy, but I can honestly take that as crude attempts at comedy.  Though, since Thor has ALWAYS eaten and drank as if there were no tomorrow, it makes no sense he suddenly gets fat. Or Captain America would go back in time and let his best friend be a mind controlled terminator for bad guys for decades.  But I am also not always as certain people are wrecking characters from any point of view past incompetence.   Or is there some other idea you have around endgame (to me using time travel was a really cheap out and something I think they did to make other movies) and how it was presented?

If the contract specifically stated Disney wasn't supposed to release in both theatres and streaming platforms and they did it anyway, ScarJo wins (short of Disney buying off everyone involved).

Latest news is that Disney is seeking to settle this out of court.

But, reading this article makes it seem like ScarJo's contract didn't explicitly mention an "exclusive" release which makes Disney's reaction more reasonable (just a bit more reasonable since the money involved isn't all that great). I think this will signal a bunch of other actors to make similar claims.

Well probably he didn't but then nice guys from TVA appeared and explained to him he has to lay low and do not disturb The Sacred Timeline or something.
If he did branch alternate reality it would had no bearing on ending of Endgame anyway - you cannot re-wrote the past just branch it.

Till the last scene with Steve's return... I think it was quite neat due to restrictions stopping re-writing of the past I must say.
