Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been discussing the missing story of where (and when) Cap went after returning the infinity stones.
In a new interview with FOX5 DC (via Comic Book Movie) the directors spoke candidly about just how the logistics of his time travel adventure would work.
“The way that it would work is that when Captain America goes back, he would create a branch reality,” Joe explains. “Now he would exist in that branch reality with a second Captain America who was frozen in ice.””Peggy understood that he was dead at that point in the storytelling because Cap went back to a point in time where nobody knew he still was alive, frozen in ice,” Anthony added before Joe chimed in to hint at at one more story featuring the hero.
“Now what’s also a story for another time is, of course, if he created a branch reality, he would then have to use a Pym Particle to come back to this reality to hand that shield off.”
Whether Marvel Studios will ever explore this story on film remains to be seen. But for now we hold out hope for one more Steve Rogers adventure!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0hWalO-CL4
