Avengers: Endgame Star Sebastian Stan Weighs in on Hot Tub Time Machine Paradox
ComicBook - 05-17
Avengers: Endgame paid off one major fan theory, which is that time travel would be necessary to defeat Thanos. With there being a number of films that have explored time travel in a variety of ways, one scene in the film used multiple references to such movies in hopes of making the concept clearer to both the characters and the audience. One of the films referenced was Hot Tub Time Machine, which is a film Sebastian Stan starred in back in 2010, presenting a paradox as it confirmed that an actor named "Sebastian Stan" existed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while the Winter Soldier looked exactly like said actor. During a recent convention appearance, Stan weighed in on what would happen if the two identities collided.
