Sorry this took so long. I’ve been working nonstop for the past week. Anyway…
Mark Ruffalo said the same thing during the AoU press before the movie came out. He said everyone dies, and it in fact was half true, half false (so I don’t trust him). For this one, I doubt they’ll die to create another universe when there’s still another Avengers movie in the works that is a direct sequel to the third Avengers movie.
Captain Marvel could have been away from Earth, that’s why she wasn’t there. Japan mission for Clint and Natasha isn’t far off, or hard to reference since that was in the comics. If they were going to reboot the franchise, that would be really weird and confusing for the ones who have been following the series already.
While I’m not saying this can’t happen, it’s going to be really… hard to pull off because they’ve culminated everything already. But if it does happen, then, I guess they’re wanting to be more true to the comics?? (I hope so). If a reboot does happen, I think they’ll make Nat and Bucky know each other. They should be hearing the commotion that is the buckynat tag asking for them.
Just looking at my blog alone is a commotion for them.
With e.g. the only changes in the up-to-and-including-The-Avengers phase being that Ant-Man and Wasp are also Avengers (and however whoever’s in charge has to finagle the plot to make that happen, it would be cool if Wasp had something to do with their being called The Avengers like she did in the original comics canon).

Tony: I showered.
