Steve Rogers' future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains a huge mystery to a lot of fans and despite the fact that Phase Four has already produced several spinoff series that all take place post-Avengers: Endgame, it almost feels like we're still being kept in the dark regarding the true status of the former Captain America. Heck, even The Falcon and the Winter Soldier only made a few references about Rogers but never directly addressed the matter.
Interestingly, we may actually get answers about Steve's status in the upcoming Hawkeye series. The show's first official trailer which dropped today includes an unexpected Steve Rogers "appearance" as it offers us a glimpse of a musical tribute to the former Captain America titled Rogers: The Musical. The Broadway presentation based on the life of one of the founding members of the Avengers even features a depiction of the Battle of New York from 2012.

Sure, it's technically not an actual appearance from the real Cap himself but instead, just an "actor" portraying the role of Steve Rogers in the said musical but still, the Broadway tribute for Cap seemingly gives fans a major hint about his true status in the MCU. I mean, tributes are normally held for people who are no longer with us physically so this could mean that Steve is actually dead in the current timeline.
However, it's worth mentioning that Chris Evans reportedly signed a new deal with Marvel Studios that will see him return in an undisclosed project so yeah, I guess Rogers' status in the franchise will remain shrouded by intrigue for now.
