In Avengers: Endgame when Captain America goes back in time to place Infinity stones.
He returns as an older man with no power left with him. We all know that it was the end of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s journey for Chris Evans aka Steve Rogers.
Avengers: Endgame didn’t explain how Captain America been able to fix his broken shield before handling it to Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
The Return Of Captain America Is Mysterious
When Captain America returns to present as old Steve Rogers with no superpowers, as we know that during an intense battle with Thanos, the shield has been totally destroyed.
However when he gives his shield to Falcon it is in good state with not even a single scratch.
Marvel never showed it being fixed by the time he re-emerged at the end of the movie, he miraculously had it in one piece again. But could this be enough proof that Steve Rogers marked a different timeline.
As after falling out with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) In Captain America: Civil War, the superhero was forced to leave his weapon behind.
It was a five-year leap in Endgame that Steve reunites with his shield, which was broken during the final battle with Thanos when he returned to Primary MCU timeline he was much older.
He revealed that he lived a full life with Peggy (Hayley Atwell) after returning all the gems and only came back to hand off the shield. The issue is that no one knows how he was able to fix his shield.
Question Revolving Around Captain America
Captain America ended up with a series of questions.
When Directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked about the specific query which many fans raised, the Russo Brother answer was conflicting with that of film’s writer Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
They said that Steve had made a new timeline where he decides to stay with Peggy. The writer said that its all part of continuity.
Not only this, The writers’ argument there have always been two Steve Rogers in the MCU all this time.
However, when Steve decided to return to the 1940s and stay with Peggy would have created a new reality for himself. Similar to how Loki escaping with the Tesseract during the Battle of New York also created a different reality.
All About Shield You Want To Know
Reports say that Steven doesn’t have a broken shield when he traveled, only taking the six Infinity Stones and the Mjolnir with him to return to their original settings.
Moreover, there was no way to fix his shield. The shield which Roger gave to Falcon looks precisely to the original one but seems to be a different one.
Sam’s version has a thin stripe in the middle and also star cutouts, which Cap’s shield didn’t have. There is no physical sign that a broken shield is repaired.
It means, Steve either asked Howard Stark or T’Challa to create this new shield specifically for Sam aka Falcon when he went back in time. This proves that he did change the timeline by meeting either of them.
