Avengers 5 can provide a way for Gamora to return to her own timeline through the introduction of incursions. The upcoming movie will likely feature incursions caused by Kang and his variants, giving Gamora the chance to leave universe 616. Gamora should have an alternate timeline to return to where Thanos died fighting the Avengers, making it safer and allowing for the exploration of a universe where the Snap never happened.

One of the many opportunities the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty movie has is the ability to return a beloved MCU hero to her rightful home. As the first MCU film to explore how time travel operates in the franchise, Avengers: Endgame spent the majority of its runtime dealing with the timeline, with many returning to their original point, some dying in the past, and a select few traveling to a new point in time and staying. One of these select few is Gamora, who was pulled into the future by 2014’s Thanos to fight the Avengers.

Not only do the Avengers succeed in killing this variant of Thanos, they also take down his massive army; Gamora is the only surviving member of 2014 Thanos’s army.This Gamora, who never even met Star-Lord or became a Guardians of the Galaxy founding member, quietly disappears and is not seen again until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, where it is revealed that she has become a Ravager. And while this version of Gamora seems to be happy with her new life, it would also be completely understandable for her to want to return to her own timeline, and the next Avengers movie is the opportunity to make that happen.

Avengers 5 promises to bring an unprecedented war to the MCU, with thousands of Kang variants set to face a New Avengers team.

Avengers 5 Can Give Gamora A Way Home

The Kang Dynasty provides the perfect opportunity for the MCU to expand on one significant consequence of time travel and the multiverse, and it is this consequence that can provide Gamora with a way to return home. Since Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the MCU has been setting up incursions, which are cataclysmic events involving the crashing of two universes into one another.While they can be completely destructive if left uncontained, The Marvels demonstrated that new incursions are essentially tears in space and time, allowing objects from one universe to easily traverse into another, which happens to Monica Rambeau. The Kang Dynasty can introduce more incursions, giving Gamora the chance to leave universe 616.

Since Kang is the main villain of the next Avengers movie, and he and his variants are known to travel to countless timelines and cause mass death and destruction, it’s safe to assume that they have left many incursions in their wake that the Avengers will need to stop. If incursions are a major factor in the plot of The Kang Dynasty, then the MCU has the chance to send Gamora back to the universe she belongs to. This Gamora variant lives in the shadow of 616’s deceased Gamora, so granting her the opportunity to return to her own timeline would be significant for her character.

While the rules of how alternate timelines and universes work in the MCU are still a bit murky, Gamora should have a timeline to return to.Her Thanos was on 616 Thanos’s path until he learned of the Avengers’ time heist. Knowing that the path he was on not only led to his gruesome death, but the reversal of everything he worked so hard to accomplish, Thanos decided to change his course of action, instead following the Avengers back to the present to stop them and kill all life in the universe. This major decision should have created a new branch, one in which Thanos never succeeds in collecting the Infinity Stones.

This alternate timeline, in which there is no Thanos because he died fighting 616’s Avengers and the Snap never happened, should be Gamora’s home. It should be a lot safer than Earth 616’s timeline because Thanos is dead, the catastrophic effects of his Snap and the subsequent Blip never happened, and heroes who died in Infinity War and Endgame would still be alive. It would be very interesting for the MCU to explore an alternate universe in which the Snap never happened, and in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, it can do not just that, as well as return a beloved hero to her rightful home after seven long cinematic years.
