Captain America"s Secret Wars Return Explained In Epic MCU Theory

  • Steve Rogers could return in Avengers: Secret Wars through a theory involving the Time Variance Authority.
  • The theory solves Captain America's MCU ending debate and aligns with fan requests for a specific Steve Rogers adventure.
  • Despite not ruling out returning, Chris Evans is unsure about coming back as Captain America.
A new Marvel Cinematic Universe theory presents the perfect way for Chris Evans to return as Captain America in Avengers: Secret Wars. Evans is one of the most popular actors in the MCU, with the star accomplishing a rare feat within the franchise. From his MCU debut in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger to his latest appearance in 2019's Avengers: Endgame, Evans managed to show up in at least one MCU project every year. Steve Rogers became one of the MCU's most important and beloved characters, being part of some of the MCU's best movies.
After a solid Captain America trilogy and many other appearances, Evans decided to leave the MCU behind, and the franchise has struggled in recent years due to the actor and Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. departing the shared universe. With the MCU being in the middle of its Multiverse Saga, there are many ways for actors who left the franchise to return, and there have even been conflicting reports about Evans coming back as Captain America. A new MCU theory gives the perfect explanation for how Captain America could be back in Avengers: Secret Wars.

Captain America Theory: Steve Rogers Has Already Lived Through Secret Wars The Theory Connects To Avengers: Endgame Close On Reddit, user yoyofro25 shared a theory that claims old Steve Rogers in Avengers: Endgame had already lived through the events of Avengers: Secret Wars. According to the MCU theory, when Captain America went back in time to return the Infinity Stones, he was recruited by Loki's Time Variance Authority. With TVA now going after Kang the Conqueror variants and the organization recruiting Deadpool — as revealed by Deadpool & Wolverine's trailers — it would make sense if the TVA brought in one of the MCU's best heroes to help save the multiverse.
One of the biggest complaints about Captain America's MCU ending was that he would just leave his friends behind and go live in the past with Peggy Carter, abandoning his superhero ways. However, by deciding to help the TVA and join the MCU's heroes in Avengers: Secret Wars, that problem goes away. Steve Rogers would have helped save the multiverse and been there in the MCU's time of need yet again, adding new context to Avengers: Endgame's old Steve scene. This would allow the MCU to bring back Evans as his original, young Captain America in Avengers: Secret Wars.

The MCU Theory Ties To A Requested Captain America Story Fans Have Wanted A Specific Steve Rogers Project For Years Close The Avengers: Secret Wars theory would be the perfect way to not only bring back Evans as Captain America but also give MCU fans the story they have been wanting to see for years. After the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel fans started to ask for a Captain America series on Disney+ to happen. With the studio being allowed to experiment with the arrival of the streaming service, there was a demand for Marvel to show Steve Rogers' journey as he returned each of the six Infinity Stones, which could have fit under the MCU's 6-episode series model.
With the TVA recruiting Deadpool out of all people to save the multiverse, there is no reason not to believe that the organization could do the same with Evans' Captain America. Avengers: Secret Wars could then start by showing the end of Steve Rogers' journey of returning the Infinity Stones, perhaps with him putting the final one in place just before the TVA recruits him and the movie starts in earnest. Marvel would be bringing back Evans as his beloved version of Captain America rather than a new multiverse variant and pleasing fans twice with the Infinity Stones' journey.

What Chris Evans Has Said About Returning As Captain America The Actor Has Not Closed The Door Close Since Avengers: Endgame seemed to put an end to the actor's time in the MCU, Evans has commented multiple times about coming back as Captain America. The consensus of his answers is that the actor does not rule out a return in the future, but Evans is currently not thinking about it and would only consider it if it was special. However, Evans has made comments that hint at a possible return in the future, such as saying, "I think there's more Steve Rogers stories to tell, sure." He just wants to wait for the right time.
While he is protective of Captain America, and it would take quite a bit to convince him to come back as Steve Rogers, there is another Marvel hero Evans would be game to play. Before the MCU, Evans gave life to Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, in two Fantastic Four movies. Evans says it would be "an easier sell" to bring him back as the Human Torch through the multiverse. With the MCU theory presenting the perfect return for Captain America in Avengers: Secret Wars, it remains to be seen if Evans and Marvel will ever team up again.
Avengers: Secret Wars Avengers: Secret Wars is the sixth Avengers film and takes place during phase six of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. The film will see several heroes from the prior phases return and battle against a cosmic threat to rival Thanos, and borrows elements of the Marvel Comics event of the same name.
