Bucky Knew About Captain America's Fate In Endgame The Whole Time So The Conspiracies Are Confirmed

And now we're crying.

At the end of Avengers: Endgame Captain America surprised everyone when he went back in time to return the Infinity Stones and stayed in the past with the love of his life Peggy Carter, appearing at the end of the film as ‘Old Steve’.

In the scene we see Cap leave to return the stones and, as we saw earlier on in the film, he should return from the time travel sequence basically straight away. But he doesn’t.

Sam Wilson AKA Falcon is clearly very concerned and demands that Bruce Banner brings him back.

However, Bucky, Steve’s lifelong bestie, is calm and doesn’t seem at all worried that his friend hasn’t returned. This led many fans to believe that Steve had told Bucky his plan to be with Peggy before he left.

Now, we finally have confirmation, because according to, the film’s DVD and Blu-ray commentary reveal Bucky knew all along.

As Bucky and Steve hug goodbye, co-director Joe Russo says, “Now clearly Bucky knows something here, right?” I’m not going to lie, it seems weird for the director to be asking this question about his own film, but anyway…

Writer Stephen McFeely responds, “Yeah, I think it’s clear from Sebastian’s performance here. He’s been clued into Steve’s decision.”

“Why [else] would Bucky say, ‘I’m gonna miss you.’ Especially if it’s only going to be five seconds?”

Russo agrees, “Yeah, he knows,” adding, “Now, we don’t know the extent of what Steve told him, but clearly he told him something.”

McFeely continues, “Yeah, I don’t think he said, ‘I’ll go sit on the bench over there.'”

“I think he’s certainly surprised to see that [part].”

So, while he might not have expected to see his friend looking like a grandpa, he certainly knew his plans.

And now we, and probably a lot of Stucky fans, are crying all over again.

Endgame Directors Reveal Why It Was Important That Black Panther Was The First Dusted Hero To Return

A lot of thought went into it.

While promoting the release of Avengers: Endgame on DVD and Blu-ray, the film’s directors Anthony and Joe Russo participated in a Reddit AMA and answered a lot of fan questions.

One of the topics that came up was the reasoning behind why Black Panther was the first dusted hero to return to the fight at the end of the movie and there was a specific reason behind that order.

Joe Russo explained, “We spent a lot of time in the edit room playing around with the sequencing of the portals. We probably didn’t lock that section of the movie until about a month before the film was in theaters.

“We always wanted [Sam Wilson] to be the first one to communicate with [Captain America] via his comm and Sam was last in Wakanda, so logically the first portal that would open would the Wakandan portal.

“And the first person that would logically walk through a portal from Wakanda would be the king himself, bringing his army once again to the defense of Cap and the world.”

So, T’Challa’s entrance was really just due to the fact he was near Sam, plus a whole lot of other heroes were dusted in Wakanda so it made sense that they were the first to appear through the portals.

In the scene, Cap is facing Thanos alone and is getting beaten down, but he then gets the communication from Wilson repeating his iconic line, “On your left,” and the rest is (heartbreaking) history.

The directors also revealed why the cut the scene with all of the Avengers taking a knee following Tony Stark’s death.

“We found the Avengers kneeling scene incredibly emotional as well, but when played in the run of the film, it felt incredibly similar to the moment when all of the heroes stood on the shore at Tony’s funeral, paying their respects to him outside his home,” they wrote.

“The two scenes, when in the film together, seemed to fight one another, and created a repetitious ending.”

They also explained to fans that Captain America was always worthy of picking up Mjolnir and made a conscious decision in Avengers: Age of Ultron to not lift it.

“He always could. Our interpretation of the famous scene in Ultron was that when he realized he could pick up Mjolnir he quickly chose not to, because he didn’t want to embarrass Thor.”

This will likely come as little surprise, but the directors also told fans that the hardest scene to shoot was Tony’s death, which was shot on the last day of production.

This Honest Avengers: Endgame Trailer Might Just Be The Best Part Of The Whole Movie

It brings up a lot of good points!

Avengers: Endgame may have come out a few months ago now, but it seems like almost every day there’s something new about the film that’s coming out.

Screen Junkies has created Honest trailers for all of the MCU movies leading up to Endgame and now they’ve finally created one for the record-breaking film. And it is amazing.

The Honest trailer pokes fun at the movie’s constant attempts to explain time travel as a setup for upcoming MCU Phase 4 films as well as the TV shows that will appear on Disney+.

It also criticises the way Thor is made fun of in the movie for gaining weight when it’s obviously a result of his PTSD.

Unsurprisingly, it also points out the fact Black Widow was seemingly killed off as a way to spur on the male characters of the film.

Despite those things, the trailer does acknowledge the fact that the movie is a pretty damn satisfying end to a very popular series – and even pokes fun at Game of Thrones for being unable to do the same.

Watch the video here:

Marvel’s Phase 4 movie lineup which will include Black Widow (May 1, 2020), Eternals (November 6, 2020), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings (February 21, 2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021) and Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021).

The movies will also connect with the new TV shows in a way they’ve never done before. Some of the TV shows include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and the Hawkeye series.

Phase 5 will likely include Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Captain Marvel 2 and Fantastic Four.
