Hawkeye’s post-credits scene has been the subject of many conversations. Is this the end of the post-credits spoiler scenes? Why haven’t we seen Contessa Valentina like in other Phase 4 post-credits scenes?
But the question we don’t ask is the most important “Save the City” left unanswered: How on earth do the fictional writers of Rogers: the musical do you know exactly what happened during the battle for new york? Unlike us, they can’t sit and watch The Avengers. So how did these quotes come out? Here are three theories.
3. Tony Stark gave up
Quotes like “I could do this all day” are kind of secret slogans. Steve Rogers says it a few times, but each time it’s during a close combat, not a situation that is recorded. A theory from Redditor hockeytalkie suggests that the bully he faced in his pre-serum days came up with the phrase, or even that Baron Zemo filmed his fight with Iron Man.
These theories explain Steve’s quote, but none explain how Iron Man’s post-battle shawarma craving crept into the lyrics (“and get the shawarma when we’re done”). Who stayed around to hear this as everyone fled during the Battle of New York?
The obvious answer is that a great personality like Tony Stark approached the press after the battle and gave an oral account of what happened, including Steve’s tagline and Tony’s dinner. It’s not hard to imagine him telling the story to a magazine or a late-night show.
2. Rogers: the musical has been a long time coming
The second theory on how the creators of Rogers: the musical could know all these secrets relies on the real-world counterpart of the musical, Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda started working on Hamilton years before her studio debut in 2009. Prior to production, Miranda did extensive research to include textual quotes from Hamilton’s life. What if the spirits behind Rogers: the musical taken the same measures?
May be Rogers: the musical was researched years before the events of End of Game. During those hazy years of Blip, Steve and the other Avengers could have been questioned at length about his role in the Battle of New York City, making the musical an oral history as much as a work of theater (although not very precise. ).
1. Avengers (2012) is a dramatization in the universe
This one’s a little over there, but follow it. What if the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe were nothing but biopics of the real Avengers, which are nothing like the ones we see onscreen? For the folks in the MCU, the Marvel movies don’t exist just as blockbusters, but as historical pieces. We make countless movies about recent historical events less important than battles against aliens, so why wouldn’t the Hollywood of the MCU pump them up?
If this is true, it does Rogers: the musical the theatrical adaptation of a megahit docudrama film franchise. All quotes from the movie are literally quotes from the movie. This would change the reality of the entire MCU, but it would also explain how fantastic and “unrealistic” movies can be.
Regardless of how you explain it, the best moments from the first big MCU team-up movie are now part of an earworm, and it’s worth it no matter what the plot hole is.
