Avengers 4: Endgame: Only one Avenger knew about Captain America s decision
In the DVD commentary on "Avengers 4: Endgame," the film's directors and authors revealed that Steve Rogers, before his trip, dedicates a fellow campaigner to his plan to stay in the past.
At the end of "Avengers: Endgame", Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans) takes on the task of bringing the Infinity Stones and Thor's stolen Hammer back to their original timelines. Actually, he should be back from this mission in a few seconds, but then everything comes differently: Instead of returning to his timeline after work, Rogers makes a detour in the past to pay a visit to his great love Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) , Only as an old man does he then return to the spot in the storyline to pass on his shield and title to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).
As the authors Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus (who, by the way, do not agree with this theory of time travel) as well as the directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo in the audio commentary on the film (via ComicBook), Caps's decision to stay with Peggy in the past Not a surprise for each of his comrades.
THIS AVENGER DID KNOW OF THE MYSTERY
Steve Rogers has inaugurated his longtime companion Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) in advance in his plan. And this is also evident in the film: Whoever listens, notices that Cap says goodbye to Bucky, which he comments with the words "I'll miss you". A strange statement, he would assume that the two see each other in a few seconds. According to McFeely, in the end, Bucky is more likely to be surprised that Captain America comes back again, instead of disappearing forever into another timeline.
That it is just Bucky that Steve betrays his decision makes sense. After all, he is not only his longest and perhaps a best friend, but also the only person who can understand him as a retired veteran of the Second World War one hundred percent. Leaving him in the dark and just disappearing as his only real contact would be downright cruel.
Looking at "Endgame" next time, it's worth paying close attention to the reactions of Bucky, Falcon, and Co. in this scene. You can do this as often as you like at the latest from 5 September 2019. Then "Avengers 4: Endgame" will appear on Blu-ray and DVD.
