Endgame Directors Explain Captain America Time Travel Mystery
The Avengers: Endgame is back on theaters and the Russo brothers are promoting it. Although the directors have not been able to discuss too much during the first promotional tour, they can now talk everything. One of the issues that keeps coming back is what happened when Captain America went back in time to make Infinity Stones. We finally finally have an answer to this question, thanks to the Russos.
At the end of Endgame Captain America decides to go back in time to restore the Infinity Stones. However, he also decides to go back further and live the rest of his life with the love of his life, Peggy Carter. Cape then comes back as an old man put his shield back to Falcon. Anthony Russo asked the following question about the specifics of the situation.
"It would work in such a way that, when Captain America came back, he would create a branch reality – the reality of the branch with a second Captain America that was frozen in the ice."
As to how far away Captain America has come back, that's another question. There are now technically two versions of Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline according to Anthony Russo's explanation. Joe Russo said: "Peggy understood that he was dead at this stage of the narration" and that's because "Cape returned at a time when no one knew that he was still in life, frozen in the ice ". All of this seems quite practical, although some hardcore fans of the MCU still do not agree with the realities of the branch.
Ok, we now know what Captain America did at the conclusion of Endgame but how does he return to the current chronology? Anthony Russo said: "If he created a branch reality, then he would have to use Pym Particles to get back to that reality and put that shield back on." Although these explanations make sense, they may pose a problem for the future of the MCU and its calendar, which Endgame has been slightly modified. That being said, Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, will shed further light on the situation this summer at the San Diego Comic-Con and the D23 show.
