Avengers: Endgame ended on a bittersweet note for Captain America fans. On one hand, fans rejoiced that Steve Rogers decided to travel back in time and grew old with Peggy Carter. On the other, an older version of Steve was introduced to the world who handed over his Captain America shield to Samuel Thomas "Sam" Wilson aka The Falcon. While the events unfolded on the screen, several questions crossed past everyone's mind. Was the older Steve present at Peggy's funeral? What was the older Steve's age after the events of Endgame? and more. 

While we learned from the Avengers: Endgame that the older Steve was probably present at the funeral, a new theory has answered the question about his age as well. A new video shared by WIRED which elaborates about the special effects used in Avengers: Endgame confirms old Steve's age. 

The video confirms that Steve is 106 when he meets Sam and Bucky at the bench at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Given the serum injected in his during the World War, he became a superhuman, giving him an edge on others growing old with him. Following the video, a Reddit user has narrowed down the timeline of the events in Steve's life. The user, who goes by the handle u/Thanksredditformemes, wrote: 

"Cap is born in 1920. He goes in the ice in 1945 (25 years old)

He is found in 2011 and lives on till 2023. (12 years)

This makes Cap (before he returned the stones) 37 years old.

This means he spends 69 years with Peggy. (106 - 37)

Assuming he returned to Peggy in 1947, a good 2 years after the war ended, he would live till 2016 in alternate timeline. (2016 - 1947 = 69).

2016 is when Peggy died (in Captain America: Civil War)

This also proves that Cap returned to main timeline shortly before he time travelled for his dramatic entrance.

In summary, after returning the stones, Cap went to 1947 in alternate timeline to live with Peggy till 2014, when she died. He then returned to the main timeline shortly before he time travelled (or in between) for a dramatic entrance."
