Now, the writers of the film have come out to explain Captain America’s story a bit more, and offer a shocking bit of information.
Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely shared the news when speaking to the Hollywood Reporter. They discussed the scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier where viewers find out that Captain America’s love interest, Peggy Carter, is married with two children.
The writers have now explained that the man she was married to was Captain America himself and the kids are his. The idea is that she married Captain America from the main MCU timeline prior to him going `back in time at the end of the movie.
Although future plans are not set-in-stone, McFeely says that it was their “intention that he was always the father of those two children.”
“There is some conversation to be had on this,” he continued. “Quantum physics works in interesting ways, and what Marvel chooses to do is not up to us but … it was our intention that he was always the father of those two children. But again, there are time travel loopholes for that.”
The idea that the children belong to the character brings up the idea that “there are two children who have somewhat super soldier DNA,” Markus said.
We’ll just have to wait and see when Marvel addresses this again in a film.
Other Avengers: Endgame news
The Russo brothers opened up to fans on the Happy Sad Confused podcast about why a scene with 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford was cut from the film. But be warned — there are a lot of spoilers there too.
On the same podcast, the brothers also revealed they almost had a totally different name for the film.
Also, Avengers: Endgame is now the most-tweeted about film ever, beating out Black Panther.. Endgame has been included in more than 50 million tweets. In those tweets, many people used the amazing Endgame emojis.
Outside of the worldwide record, it also beat Titanic domestically with $619.7 million.
The highest-grossing movie ever was Avatar at $2.788 billion worldwide, so we’ll have to wait to see if the Avengers can beat that.
Avengers: Endgame has beaten many records since even before its debut. For one, it sold five times as many tickets as Infinity War during its first week of presales. This should come as no surprise with the demand of tickets being crazy enough for fans to spend upward of $15,000 for a pair.
Also, the film broke the record for Atom Tickets’ best-selling movie of all time in only 10 days.
Once it premiered, the records only kept coming. It officially had the biggest box office weekend in film history.
It completely shattered records, with the previous film at the No. 1 spot being Avengers: Infinity War which made $640 million its opening weekend.
As far as domestic records go, the film came out on top as well. It made an estimated $350 million this weekend, passing Infinity War which made $258 million.
It was projected to make between $230 and $283 million domestically, which it far surpassed.
Also, it had a worldwide projection of $800 million, which The Hollywood Reporter estimated it would surpass.
Even though the film has been out for almost two weeks, people are still attempting to avoid spoilers. A little over a week before Avengers: Endgame hit theaters, footage was reportedly leaked online. Then, when the film came out, one man even got attacked for revealing the end outside of a theater. The Russo brothers have now said that after two full weekends, its OK for people to ruin the ending.
In other news, It was previously announced that Endgame would close out Phase 3 of the MCU. However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed he now has other plans.
Avengers: Endgame is monumental for so many ways. For one, it features the final cameo by Marvel legend Stan Lee, who passed away last year at age 95.
