Avengers: Endgame

In order to reverse the Decimation, the surviving Avengers went back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones. Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Scott Lang traveled back in time to the Battle of New York in 2012 to retrieve the Space, Mind and Time Stones.

While the others went after the Mind and Space Stones at Stark Tower, Banner travelled to the Sanctum Sanctorum in search of Stephen Strange and the Time Stone. Instead, he found the Ancient One, using her powers to defend the Sanctum from the Chitauri invasion. The Ancient One revealed that Strange was still a doctor and she currently held the Eye of Agamotto and the Time Stone. When Banner tried to forcefully take the Stone from her, she removed his astral form from his body so she could converse with Banner without danger. Though the Ancient One understood the predicament that the Avengers were in, she revealed that removing the Infinity Stones from her reality could doom it without their power to help fight the evil ahead and demonstrated the multitude of alternate timelines that could cause. Banner suggested that they could return the Stones to the times they were taken to prevent this, but the Ancient One was unconvinced until Banner revealed that Strange willingly handed over the Time Stone. The Ancient One returned Banner to his body, admitting that she may have made a mistake while Banner suggested that Strange may have known something they didn't to hand the Stone over. The Ancient One gave Banner the Time Stone willingly though she warned that the Stones needed to be returned to their original times when the Avengers were done with them.

After Thanos' defeat, Banner kept his promise to the Ancient One by sending Steve Rogers to return the Stones to their original points in time.
