Feige and Johnston said that Peggy's still alive...she's 88.

They will have that dance...

One of the classiest romances I've seen in recent memory on the big screen. No over the top melodramatic BS, just good honest old fashioned romance. What I liked most about their final interaction was that it was born out of people with strong feelings for each other, but who were ultimately only at the start of their journey. They didn't say "I Love You" as it would have been out of place. Rather, they just beautifully conveyed the massive regret in the moment. Perfection.

If you're following me that is.

That'd actually be a pretty cool thing to have near the end of "The Avengers,".

Perhaps after they save the world and all the crazyness dies down, Sharon takes him to see her for the first time in 70+ years.

And they finally have that dance...

Because they are smart enough not to waste a character like Peggy

Same. I cried at the beginning of Up, so I can't even begin to imagine how I'm going to react to that if it happens.

That would be one hell of a bittersweet moment, if Cap gets that dance.....Specially if she passes shortly after

That would make it even more sad, and beautiful, at the same time.

I know.... and seeing how they weren't scared to end Cap on a horribly sad note....i can see them possibly holding it off till Cap 2 (If it's set modern day instead of a flashback)....

I think using him dancing with Peggy as the end image of his journey in Avengers would be a perfect way of ending Steve's arc in that film.

Agreed. That would be a very touching way to end his arc with Peggy.

Leading into the sequel, which will than more than likely have Sharon become his new love interest.

Because when it comes down to it, this thread is basically asking you:

"Did anyone else find the sad part of the movie...sad?"
We all get the sarcasm of his response to the thread. I find it rude not clever! What the thread is really about is the sharing of a common sorrow amongst fans of the movie and the way it ended. It's not uncommon at a time of real personal tragedy or sorrow for people/family to share their feelings. While this is just a movie/make believe it was still a very moving ending that touched the heart of most who watched it. Credit goes to JJ for directing a great movie. So please don't feed into his lack of feeling for the fans that care :-)

I have to agree with you 100%. I really hope Whedon does that. I didn't tear up during the Cap & Peggy's final scene together, but I just might if they did that.

Plus since he likes killing off major characters that'd be a nice way to do it without sacrificing the Son of Coul.

Seeing Steve dance with a elderly Peggy would be almost as bittersweet as it was for the moment in Christopher Reeve's "Somewhere in time", where at the beginning of the film, he's visited by the elderly version of his romantic partner telling him cryptically to "come back to her".

Though yeah, it would definitely provide closure in some format; and lord knows a lot of people will be crying at that scene, and like someone else said, just imagine if Peggy died not long after their first and only dance.

It just hit me hard emotionally and I even recall getting more than a little misty-eyed during that entire moment.
you've never red the comic book
from what i recalled peggy is still alive ,she's and old woman but still alive
and cap will go out with her younger sister sharon
even though after senventy years her younger sister might even be too old for cap
maybe she wil be her grand daughter this time or perhaps the'll do an entire new scenario for the movie.

For the biggest hero in the MCU world, Steve sure has the worst luck when it comes to his love life.

Seriously, I'm going to be rooting for this guy to find some sort of happiness by the end of his franchise.

I don't care what happened in the comics, I'll find it a bit disturbing if Cap gets with Peggy's granddaughter.

I thought Sharon was her "niece". Be that as it may, if they really want to, they could tweak the relationship shared between Sharon and Peggy like they did with Mystique and Nightcrawler/Scott and Alex Summers/Professor X and Juggernaut in the X Men films.

Niece, granddaughter, whatever. I don't think it works.

It is ironic that given on how clean cut of a hero Captain America is portrayed as, that when it comes to the interpretation/handling of his love life, that the writer chose to give him one that would raise a good amount of eyebrows.lol

But like I said, if Marvel Studios really feel that that relationship shared between Sharon and Peggy may make it too weird for a majority of the audience for when Sharon and Steve get together, then they could easily change the familial bonds between them.

I'd love it if he said, "Sorry, I'm late" followed by a bittersweet smile form her.

Yes it can be weird if they keep referring back to it. I mean she should mention it once but not focus on it. If Sharon keeps going...Aunt Peggy this and Aunt Peggy that...Cap falls for her that way than yes it would seem weird.

But if they show Sharon being kick ass woman like Peggy was then we could easily see why it could happen. Because she would exude the same presence as her Aunt.
