Questions we have about Captain America after the new Endgame trailer


The new Avengers: Endgame television spot zeroed in on Captain America, and we have a lot of questions about what the film has in store for him.

The Super Bowl graced us with a new TV spot for Avengers: Endgame, and it’s no surprise that fans are freaking out.

Just like the first trailer for the film, this TV spot didn’t offer too much information or reveal any answers to big questions. However, that has not stopped fans from speculating. It was extremely somber and opened with images of a half-ruined Manhattan, and all of the characters looking like they’ve really been going through it.

Also similar to the first trailer, this one was heavily Captain America focused, which has Steve Rogers fans both worried and excited. Of course, fans do want to see more of this favorite character, but a heavy focus on him in multiple trailers worries us that he’ll meet his maker in Endgame.

There have been rumors and speculation about this for a while now, even before Infinity War, and with Endgame being Chris Evans’ last MCU film as far as we know, fans are right to be concerned. The quick moments shown in the Super Bowl spot were gut-wrenching to say the least. See what we mean below.

Now that we’ve seen this new spot, here are some of the biggest questions we have about Captain America in Avengers: Endgame.

Is Steve Rogers in therapy?

The TV spot opens with aerial shots of a cold, dark, and somehow quiet Manhattan. We’re then shown what looks like a group therapy session, with Steve Rogers in attendance. A sign hanging outside the door of the room reads, “Where do we go, now that they’re gone?” First of all, ouch! That is a big punch to the gut.

We honestly do hope that Endgame shows Steve getting therapy for all that he has lost. With all that he’s been through, he likely needs help dealing with that trauma. We’re not sure though whether he is more sad or angry, as a close-up of his face shows a very pained expression.

Is he angry about being asked to move on? That would seem pretty consistent with him as a character as he’s never one to back down from a fight or to stop trying to save people.

Is Cap assembling the Avengers himself? Does he know anything about where Iron Man is?

In the last shot of the TV spot, we see Cap, with his original shield which we will address in a second, leading some of the Avengers including Black Widow, Thor, and Rocket, through what looks like the Avengers compound in upstate New York.

It looks like Steve will return to what he knows best — leading a team into battle. This is great to see, but it also makes fans wonder when Tony Stark reunite with the rest of the Avengers. Do Steve and the others know were Iron Man is?

Fans speculate that one shot of Cap and Co. looking up to the sky is them witnessing Tony finally crash landing on Earth. Then again, it could be Captain Marvel making her grand entrance.


A scene from the new Endgame TV spot that has worried fans (and us) the most is a close-up shot of Captain America tightening up a strap on his arm for his iconic shield. If you look carefully, you’ll notice his hand is shaking a bit before he tightens the strap and his other hand appears to be bleeding. While seeing Steve with his original shield again is symbolic, fans are concerned this could be the last time he wields it.

Marvel does like to mess with fans sometimes, and it feels like they’re trying to scare us a little. Note to Marvel — it’s definitely working. This scene gives us flashbacks to when Infinity War trailers were first coming out. Seeing Cap’s face scrunched up in pain as Thanos took him down was too much to handle.

Thankfully, Cap survived Infinity War.

Will he make it through Endgame though? We’ll have to wait and see.

Someone very close to Thor could return in Avengers: Endgame. light. Related Story
