Avengers: Endgame wrapped up 21 saga movies and is running in theaters. Fans are in deep trauma of losing their favorite superheroes after watching it.
The plot of the movie which js Time Travel is a bit confusing and fans need some answers to the breaches produced after some events. Fans might feel spoiler ahead so proceed carefully.
Big Spoilers Ahead….!
Chris Evans’ Captain America seemed to get a finale for his overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline in Avengers: Endgame. The movie left some questions about the ramifications of his decisions.
The main plot of the movie was Time travel. So it was obvious that it might look somewhat complex or either director doesn’t want fans to get the clues.
Present day characters visiting the past can’t change what’s already happened – their future can’t change their own pasts. However, changes in the past can create branching, alternate timelines.
The final scenes of the Endgame establish that Captain America was given responsibility to place back infinity stones to their respective place in the past.
Then, Steve Rogers retired as Captain America instead of returning to the core timeline.
He lived a full life into old age alongside his World War 2 flame Peggy Carter – appearing as an old man to pass on his shield and mantle to Sam Wilson in the present day.
A Hidden Story?
In a new interview, Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo seemed to hint at how Chris Evans could return as Captain America. No surprise, his possible return has to do with a few Endgame Easter eggs connected to that final time heist Cap pulls off.
So, EW, like many fans, wanted to know if Captain America had been living in the past this whole time. “If Cap were to go back into the past and live there, he would create a branched reality,” Joe Russo explained to Entertainment Weekly.
“The question then becomes, how is he back in this reality to give the shield away?”
“Interesting question, right?” Russo continued. “Maybe there’s a story there. There’s a lot of layers built into this movie and we spent three years thinking through it, so it’s fun to talk about it and hopefully fill in holes for people so they understand what we’re thinking.”
The question of alternate realities and branching timelines is at the heart of one of Endgame’s biggest conundrums – how to visit the past without changing the future.
Of course, as Russo pointed out, that leaves the question – how did Steve Rogers return to the core reality to pass on his shield to Sam? And could the answer to that question relate to Joe Russo’s previous comments that Chris Evans wasn’t technically done as Captain America after Endgame?
The Russo brothers also set up a scenario where Captain America’s story could be told by his bestie Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who the Russo brothers say, did know Cap’s plan to find Peggy. “Especially when he says goodbye,” Joe said.
Not to mention, Falcon now has Captain America’s shield, which he may say feels “like it’s someone else’s,” but Cap swears isn’t. It could actually be Falcon’s shield in this other reality Steve created and was living in.
This definitely needs to be explained further, and probably will, even if the Russo brothers don’t really know how yet.
Captain America gets a sweet resolution to his story in Endgame, but it’s clearly not the end of his story.
And just like Bucky, you know we’re gonna be with Cap “till the end of the line.”
