Following Tony Stark’s death, Marvel fans also had conclusions for Thor and Captain America in Avengers Endgame. The latter decided to return the Infinity Stones and Mjolnir to their points in the timeline. However, Steve never returned, instead deciding to have the life with Peggy he never had in the 1940s. But when old Cap appeared and gave his shield to Falcon, some fans were wondering how he could be there.
After all, Avengers Endgame introduced a more scientifically accurate theory of time travel than movie fans are used to in sci-fi films like Back to the Future.
Surely when Steve went back in time to live with Peggy he created an alternate timeline, so how could old Cap be there?
Well according to directors The Russo Brothers: “The old Cap at the end movie, he lived his married life in a different universe from the main one.
“He had to make another jump back to the main universe at the end to give the shield to Sam.”
