Last night, I watched Avengers: Endgame for the third time. I really love rewatching the final 15 minutes when Sam “Falcon” Wilson assumes the mantel of Captain America from Steve Rogers. It’s a beautiful scene and then we get the bonus of receiving closure on the Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter love story.
My question is what happens next? If the military discovers that Steve is alive back in the 1940s, they will want him back. He’s an expensive strategic asset.
So that means that Peggy must keep him secret.
To that end, does this mean Peggy leaves S.H.I.E.L.D.? If she continues working there and maintaining the long hours and work ethic she’s known for, wouldn’t she risk revealing her secret? You’d think it would slip out somehow.
And then, if she does leave her employer, that means that the show Agent Carter is no longer canon and she wouldn’t appear in Avengers: Endgame.
It stands that the final scene of Endgame could screw up a large chunk of MCU continuity, wouldn’t you think?
