Joe Russo recently explained that Captain America came from a different timeline to deliver Sam Wilson his shield at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers: Endgame might’ve come out two years ago, but Marvel fans are still discussing the film’s time travel rules, especially with what happened to Captain America at the end. Some fans now believe that two Captain Americas are running around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

During a recent appearance on Lights Camera Barstool, Joe Russo addressed all the speculation by giving his answer to whether Captain America lived through the same timeline or a different one by the time we reach the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame:

“Cap would’ve had to have traveled back to the main timeline. That’s something that yes, he would’ve been in a branch reality and would’ve traveled back to the main timeline to give that shield to Sam. In our internal logic that we defined in the room, that was the choice that we made based on everything that happened. He would’ve been in a branch reality and then had to have shifted over to this. So jumped one to the other, right? Then handed the shield off.”
