The MCU's Darkest Easter Egg Everyone Missed In Endgame
Marvel's epic superhero crossover film Avengers: Endgame is officially the gift that keeps on giving – even when its presents are pretty bleak.
The latest find came when a particularly sharp-eyed Endgame viewer noticed that at a certain point in the film, Steve Rogers can be spotted wearing an Army uniform with the name "Roscoe" on the chest. This occurs when Steve and Tony Stark travel back to the 1970s in hopes of getting their hands on the Space Stone that's needed to make their Infinity Gauntlet work. To find the Stone and help reverse Thanos' fateful "snap," Cap and Iron Man infiltrate an Army base, where Cap eventually lays eyes on his beloved Peggy Carter and Tony shares a moment with his late father, Howard.
It seems that in their effort to conceal their identities at the base, Cap ended up stealing a uniform from a grunt by the name of Roscoe.
For a brief period in the Marvel comics' run, a brave soul called Roscoe Simons carried the Captain America mantle, after Steve Rogers abandoned the persona to become the Nomad.
Per Roscoe's backstory, the character was actually a lifelong fan of Steve Rogers' Captain America. After Steve dropped the title, Roscoe stepped up to become the next version of the first Avenger. Surprisingly, Roscoe proved a more than capable fighter, eventually winning the approval of Steve and his pal the Falcon, and even earning the right to wield Captain America's near-indestructible shield.
Unfortunately, Roscoe's time as Captain America was brief, as the character was eventually captured and brutally murdered by Red Skull. Upon discovering that Roscoe wasn't the real Captain America after he killed him, Red Skull left a cautionary message that the same fate awaited any other "fake" Captain Americas. As tragic as Roscoe's death was, it proved the catalyst for Steve to again pick up the shield and bring down Red Skull once and for all.
It appears that the Russo brothers may have been so moved by Roscoe's story that they felt compelled to acknowledge him in Avengers: Endgame, using his first name for the surname on Steve's suit. Plus, since Roscoe's time as Captain America occurred during a run published in the 1970s, seeing the character referenced in a '70s-set moment in Endgame is sort of a double Easter egg.
As for the odds that we'll ever get to see Roscoe Simons on any kind of screen? The answer lies in what the future holds for the Captain America moniker. Keep watching the video to see the MCU's darkest Easter egg everyone missed in Endgame.
