One of the things I love and hate about the Marvel movies is when they interject time travel in the story line. Sometimes it can become too convoluted! What are the loop holes that you've noticed with regards to time travel in the following movies/series?:

 

1.xmen days of the future past

 

2. The flash

 

3. Avengers (spoiler alert: no time travel story line yet but they will soon have it in the infinity war story line)

 

Post your theories here time travel experts ! :)

Yes, I just finished the first season of "The Flash" and I can honestly say that the whole time-travelling thing was really confusing, especially since details about it come too late to make any sense.

 

It's a great show overall but they could've worked more on the time travel part!

I have never been a fan of super heros movies neither of comics but I love the idea to put in a cartoon something about time travel even though it could result in a total fail, I would still appreciate the effort that the comics designer would make in order to let the kids know about this fascinating topic.

Here's one of the loopholes regarding time travel i noticed in X Men : DOFP.

 

Now QuickSilver experiences time approximately 4000 times faster than a normal human being, which means QuickSilver could have got Mystique out of the whole building in 0.001 seconds, which makes the whole sequence quite pointless.

I was only able to watch the season finale episodes of The Flash series and it's interesting how it was revealed that evil Flash could time travel by running faster than the speed of light... it makes Quicksilver pale in comparison :P And speaking of Quicksilver, what's he doing in the present timeline in the Avengers movie? And why did Wolverine lost his memories of his original time line only to regain it back in the altered present timeline? These time travel story lines make my head want to explode! haha...

Oh, the original Superman movie where Superman flew so fast around the planet that he changed the direction it was spinning and allowed him to go a few minutes into the past. Of course, that had no effect on stuff like gravity, tides, satalites.. nope..

 

Personal opinion, but unless time travel is the focus of the movie or TV show, it shouldn´t be used in the movie or tv show.

The Days of Future Past movie was good, but I do find their vision of time travel challenging. They're sending the mind to the past, which on the surface seems like a more valid method of transport than sending a whole person. But on the other hand, the past and present coexisting until the traveler wakes up? It seems off to me. If they're coexisting, wouldn't that make the future change literally by the second? I don't know. It was a good movie though, and definitely worth watching if you're a fan of the Marvel movies.
