Avengers: Endgame seems to have drawn a pretty solid line between Steve Rogers and his possible return to the MCU. There have been a lot of time travel theories which speculate how he went back to Peggy or how he might return. But there’s another thing which has been speculated a lot, and that is regarding how did he spend the intervening decades.
Most Prominent Rumours Regarding Steve Roger’s Return To The MCU
The writers of Endgame have said that Steve lived a happy life with Peggy Carter while simultaneously telling us that it would be detrimental to the MCU if Evans were to return. But rumours have constantly linked the actor to a return to the franchise. One of the most prominent rumour involves Cap returning for Disney+ series Falcon and the Winter Soldier or for Loki.
Marvel Considering Exploring Captain America’s Alternate Timeline Life
New sources have come forward to say that Marvel Studios is considering exploring Captain America’s life in the alternate timeline in a future project. There is no word on when this could happen since the project is said to be in its very early stages. One way they could do this without affecting MCU’s timeline is by doing a standalone episode of Disney Plus’ animated show What If…?. After all, one episode showing how Peggy Carter became Captain America in an alternate timeline is already being done. Another way this could be done is through flashbacks in a future MCU movie. It could show us what Steve got up to.
Either way, fans would no doubt love to see how Captain America spent his life instead of being trapped in ice for 70 years. Hopefully Marvel gets to it sooner rather than later.
