Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter getting collectively within the closing scenes of Avengers: Endgame is what you name a really divisive ending. Whereas some love the romantic dance sequence between the 2 long-lost lovers, others really feel it eliminated Cap’s development over the flicks. Peggy followers, in the meantime, felt it undid her arc on Agent Carter, the place she obtained over her grief for Steve and moved on with Daniel Sousa.
However what does Sousa himself make of the ending? Enver Gjokaj provided his ideas on Endgame‘s finale scene whereas speaking to Leisure Weekly and it appears the actor – who additionally appeared in The Avengers as an NYC cop – is totally high quality with it. He even stated that the tragedy of Sousa at all times being second-best to Steve is what he loves in regards to the character.
“To be trustworthy, it’s so clear within the writing and it’s so clear in the best way Hayley performs it that [Steve] was by no means gonna get replaced,” Gjokaj defined. “I feel that was the gorgeous tragedy of his attraction to her is that he knew that and he wished to be together with her anyway. He knew he was at all times going to be second place, and I feel that’s a bit of heartbreaking about Sousa.”
Peggy and Sousa had a “will they, received’t they?” relationship throughout AC‘s two seasons, earlier than Peggy planted one on him within the season 2 finale. Sadly, ABC pulled the plug on the present after that so we by no means obtained to see the place the couple went from there. In keeping with Endgame, although, Steve wandered again into Peggy’s life and Sousa was given the boot. Robust luck, Daniel.
On the plus aspect, we’re about to see extra of Sousa within the MCU as Gjokaj is reprising his position for the primary time since Agent Carter resulted in Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 7. This could hopefully give us some closure on what occurred to him. There’s additionally an opportunity Hayley Atwell will drop by, too, to play Peggy one final time after Avengers: Endgame.
