There is a lot of time travel involved in Avengers: Endgame and with it brings

Gamora back into the fold.

We know what happened to the character in Avengers: Infinity War but in Endgame

A past version is brought to the present in the fight against Thanos.

This character helps out but is last seen

with all the other female Avengers assisting Captain Marvel in getting the gauntlet to the quantum tunnel.

As the character is then missing at the end of the movie do we know what happened to them?

FWIW I think finding Gamora will probably play a part in GotG3 with the setup at the end of Endgame so I’m specifically asking for any evidence we currently know of for what happened to her.

    You should re-watch the movie. Gamora actually meets with Star Lord where they have a face to face conversation, with her asking Nebula if "this is the man". – Lefteris008 Apr 25 at 3:56

    @Lefteris008 Ah true it was 4am and I'd just got home after seeing it so had a brain fart. However, she is missing later on at the final events of the film so it's not clear what happened to her after the battle and Tony's actions. – TheLethalCarrot Apr 25 at 8:06
  • Tony actually snapped Gamora out of existence. Because he didn't know Gamora was in their side. – I Love You 3000 May 6 at 4:48

I think it's a little unclear, although it seems that the character continues to exist in the present. I base this on the character's last appearance (which occurs after that which you cited) and what followed:

We last see past-Gamora as Quill encounters her near the finish, I think, of the big climactic battle, after she and present-Nebula have killed past-Nebula. (I've seen it once so I'm relying on imperfect memory here.) As he touches her cheek, past-Gamora kicks Quill in the nether regions (twice). Then she asks Nebula, "This one, really?" Nebula answers, "It was either him or a tree." This gives the impression that Nebula has, off screen, already told Gamora about her relationship with Quill. Having now met Quill, past-Gamora is not impressed. I also had the impression that past-Gamora survived the battle, although we don't see this on-screen. The moment where we see Quill searching for her, immediately before bantering with Thor, suggests to me that past-Gamora has stayed in the present but slipped away rather than joining the Guardians. However, that's merely an interpretation. I do agree it potentially sets up "Guardians of the Galaxy 3: The Search for Gamora."

  • Hmmm it is a potential idea that she just didn't want to stay with the GotG but I get the feeling she would have stayed with Nebula if not for Quill. Still +1 though seems like some decent reasoning. – TheLethalCarrot Apr 25 at 8:09

    @TheLethalCarrot Agreed. I was a bit surprised to see Nebula with the GotG, but not Gamora. The "why" of her decision not to stay with Nebula, despite Quill, gets into speculation about her motivations, and what the writers were thinking. It would have been nice to have seen a moment explaining it. – Rob Apr 25 at 14:11

    “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3: How is Gamora?” (Spoiler: she’s fine.) – Paul D. Waite Apr 25 at 14:27
  • @Rob bear in mind it’s 2014 Gamora. Although she allied with Nebula to stop Thanos, there’s still a lot of animosity between them at this point. – Paul D. Waite Apr 25 at 14:29

    @PaulD.Waite That's how I interpreted it, too: she wouldn't have been ready to be a sister to Nebula, not having lived those four years' worth of experiences with the GotG as well has her. Although this makes the most sense to me, I suppose her motivation to leave could also have included a desire to take a gap year to see the universe, grief for the loss of her dad Thanos, or an unrequited lust for Rocket. – Rob Apr 25 at 14:51

My take on it is that there's a possibility that they'd take a page from the Infinity Wars comic.

In the comics Gamora looked for her other counterpart trapped in soul world. Well it was really part of her but maybe in the MCU they might make it so that Gamora from the past wants to meet the other Gamora. It might be an interesting take given how the Infinity Stones work there. It also makes it possible to play with the other alternate dimensions such as having Loki back

  • Also worth noting that in the Infinity Gauntlet series, Gamora and Adam Warlock both start as being trapped in the soul gem and manage to escape. The GotG 2 hinted at the possibility Adam Warlock, and he's always been linked to the soul gem, so I think there is a lot of comics precedent for them going down this path. Still speculation though. – Jack May 14 at 1:35
