At the beginning of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the students from Peter's high school pay their respects

to the fallen Avengers during their attempt to bring back the snapped people.

In the video A Memorium to the Lost Avengers that follows, we see that Captain America is presented alongside the deceased Iron Man, Vision, and Black Widow.

So, is the general public unaware that,

Captain America is still alive (old, but still ticking)?

    He could be dead now...it's 8 months after Endgame....but I suspect he's just "officially" dead. – Paulie_D Jul 4 at 12:12

    @Paulie_D Do you have a source for the 8 months after? I've seen it quoted a few times but last I heard Amy Pascal was quoting it would start "a few minutes after". – TheLethalCarrot Jul 4 at 12:15

    It's stated in the "In memorium" video that the Blip happened 8 months ago. – Paulie_D Jul 4 at 12:17
  • @Paulie_D Ah, I should have paid more attention to that part. – TheLethalCarrot Jul 4 at 12:18
  • If Sam is taking up his mantel, then the public might not know the difference. – Chipster Jul 4 at 19:39

Probably but it doesn't matter

I would assume they don't know that he is still alive as that would seem contradictory to him wanting to keep a few things secret (for example, his wife). Per the Avengers side of things, they seem pretty fragmented in Far From Home but they too would probably want to keep it a secret out of respect for Steve.

The fact that he is in the video points to the fact that the public almost certainly don't know he is still alive and think he died in the Battle for Earth.

However, it doesn't matter if he died or became too old, he is still no longer an Avenger and the video is commemorating those Avengers that saved the world that are "no longer with us". For all intents and purposes death and being too old to be of much help are pretty synonymous in the world of being a superhero.


It's also worth pointing out that Far From Home takes places 8 months after Endgame and so Steve could have died in that time. I highly doubt he has but he's an old man so it is a possibility.

First of all, we are not sure in which timeline Cap spent his life before passing over the shield to Falcon. The screenwriters of Avengers: Endgame says he stayed in the original timeline but in the past, married Peggy, lived here all the time without intervening any evens we saw in the past film. But the directors tell us otherwise (alternate timeline).

Now, no matter which timeline he lives in. The public from original timeline wouldn't know if he's still alive. Either he would be living in another timeline or secretly living a normal life in the original timeline without revealing his identity. So he is actually MIA. That's no matter he is dead or alive why it's obvious for public to assume that he has passed.
