By now, most fans know the particulars in Avengers: Endgame. At the end of the film, Cap had the task of returning the Infinity Stones to their rightful places in time. This includes the stone that people were dying to retrieve, the Soul Stone. It has been many fan’s contention that to return the Soul Stone, he would have had to face the Red Skull, or whatever that is guarding it. How that transaction would have taken place is anyone’s guess, including the directors of End Game, the Russos. They did however confirm that Steve would have had to go through the Skull. The question would be how to proceed. In an interview with CinemaBlend, they explained it like this
He would have to encounter Red Skull. And nobody knows what the rules are when you return the Soul Stone. (As far as whether the Skull would even want the stone) Nobody knows. But knowing Red Skull, he probably has a no-money-back policy.
It is kind of strange that the Russo’s didn’t have an explanation prepared for how Steve was able to return the stone. Another fan theory that has been presented shares a completely different tale entirely. In that theory, Steve exchanges the stone back and retrieves Natasha. While he goes back to Peggy to get his dance, he goes no further with their relationship because he didn’t want to change her history. Instead, he eventually married Natasha and they lived together until her death and that is when he returned to Sam to give him his Shield. In that theory, THAT is why he didn’t want to talk about his ring. It is just a theory but it shows how creative fans are with the interpretations of events.
Myself, I prefer the Steve and Peggy, happily ever after storyline. How do you think Steve returned the Soul Stone? Maybe you have an even better scenario? Share your theories with us at GVNation.
