With all the flashbacks and in-universe video and all the time-travel in Avengers: Endgame, it's not difficult to think of points in time that have been depicted multiple times, such as:

  • Most of the times the heroes traveled to retrieve a Stone from the past

  • The instant of the Unsnappening, which simultaneously occurs while the main heroes are in Upstate New York and in the high school gym in Spider-Man: Far From Home

  • etc.

But, is there any point in time, which we see three, four, maybe even five or more times?


For the purpose of this question:

  • The instant must be known to be the same instant (not just likely to be the same time).

  • The instant can be still or video, part of the film or seen in-universe (diegetic or non-diegetic). However, supporting materials (posters) and parts outside the film (e.g. the Marvel splash screen or parts of the credits) are out. Post/mid-credits scenes are okay, of course.

  • Different timelines are okay, if we know it's the same instant.

  • I'm open to suggestions on the tagging (?) – ThePopMachine Jul 9 '19 at 16:19

    My money would be on the battle of New York, we see it in the Avengers, Endgame and Iron Man 3 off the top of my head, it might be shown in Ultron too. – Geneworm Jul 9 '19 at 16:54

    @JDoe: Good point!! However, do we know technically, whether they are the same time, or merely it is a sequence of time that keeps resetting its state (mostly) and occurs while no time passes in the real world? Does that question even make sense? – ThePopMachine Jul 9 '19 at 23:14

The Snap is shown at least 6 times.

  • Avengers: Infinity War - Wakanda (various scenes, could count more than once)
  • Avengers: Infinity War - Titan
  • Avengers: Infinity War - New York
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp - Los Angeles
  • Avengers: Endgame - Clint's [safe] house
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home - Midtown School of Science and Technology

We first see it in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos snaps and we see how it affects various areas across the world: Wakanda, Titan and New York.

It is then shown in the post credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

We then see this again in the prologue to Avengers: Endgame and how it affected Clint and his family.

This is then shown again in Spider-Man: Far From Home in the in memorium video which shows the band and those in the stands being snapped away.

  • I suspect three is going to be beaten. – ThePopMachine Jul 9 '19 at 16:45
  • @ThePopMachine Wouldn’t surprise me but that depends on whether it counts as 3 or 5+ because of the different scenes and locations. – TheLethalCarrot Jul 9 '19 at 17:05
  • Scenes/locations counts if they are definitely simultaneous. – ThePopMachine Jul 9 '19 at 18:50
  • @ThePopMachine if I’m understanding you right this would count as at least 5 then I believe. – TheLethalCarrot Jul 9 '19 at 18:56
  • It would, if you can enumerate the instances, and we know they are not serial. – ThePopMachine Jul 9 '19 at 19:00

The deaths of Tony's parents in a car crash are seen four times, from different perspectives, in flashback and in video.

    Could you edit in the times they are seen? And if you can find it a video clip of each would be great. – TheLethalCarrot Jul 9 '19 at 17:09
