Back when Avengers: Endgame released, a million theories made their way to the internet. Many were too good to be true but there were a few that spread online like wildfire. One of the most popular theory was that of old Steve Rogers being present at Peggy's funeral. Avengers: Endgame introduced us to an old Captain America. The superhero, who fought alongside Iron Man and Thor against Thanos in the epic battle of the Endgame, decided to go back into time and stay there with Peggy. The older version was later seen on a bench, handing over the shield to The Falcon. 

When the scene played out, fans were suddenly reminded of Captain America: Civil War wherein Steve attended and paid his respect to Peggy. Peggy's funeral scene took the internet by storm as fans began pointing out that the older version of Steve was present at the funeral. While the Russo Brothers haven't said anything yet about the possibility, Avengers: Endgame writers shared their thoughts on the theory. 

Speaking with Los Angeles Times, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely gave their seal of approval to the theory. “I would very much like that. There is no set explanation for Cap’s time travel,” Markus said. “I mean, we’ve had public disagreements with [directors Anthony and Joe Russo] about what it necessarily means [laughs], but I love the idea of there being two Steve Rogers in the timeline," he added. "One who lived a long life with Peggy and is in the background of that funeral scene watching his young self carry his wife’s coffin up. Not just for the time travel mumbo jumbo of it, but for the just weird, personal pain and satisfaction that would be happening between two Steve Rogers there. I kind of love it," he explained. 

When he was asked if an exact explanation would be required, McFeely answered, “It depends on what kind of stories Marvel wants to tell going forward, and I don’t know if they want to. Do they want to tell stories with characters who are gone? Do they want to do prequels? [Black Widow], is that just a straight prequel or is that in some sort of alternate timeline? Do they want to embrace the multiverse or not? And if they do, they tell one kind of story. Captain America could save [John F.] Kennedy in a story, right? Is that a story you want to tell? I don’t know. But they’re retraining the audience. My grandmother might not be able to understand multiverse, but I think a lot of audience members might be down for it. So I don’t know," he concluded.
