It’s barely been a day since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer was leaked, and already fans have gone through every inch of that 2:17 video. Upon multiple viewings (I’m at my 20th, or maybe 25th...it’s hard to keep track), the trailer seems to get better each time. Of course, half the fun of the trailer is also speculating on the movie itself going off these scenes. Why are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch hanging out with Ultron? Why is Thor choking Tony? Who is Andy Serkis playing? Ironically though, one of the most intriguing questions that the trailer poses comes from a blink-and-you-miss-it scene.

At the 1:31 mark, right after Scarlet Witch shoots an energy blast, there’s a brief shot of Steve Rogers walking through a crowded party. The USO banner and old-school suits and dresses suggest there will be a scene featuring Steve back in the World War II days. This will be the first time he has been seen in a 1940s setting since Captain America: The First Avenger, and since Haley Atwell will also appear in the movie, there’s a good chance Steve and Peggy Carter will be interacting. However, why exactly are we seeing him in the past again? Here are several reasons.

Flashback
Flashback
Captain America: The First Avenger showed audiences Captain America’s origin and how he defeated the Red Skull, but many of his World War II adventures were glossed over in a montage sequence. Since arriving in the present, Cap’s narrative has been rooted in the present, aside from brief film footage in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Avengers: Age of Ultron may flashback to the 40s to a moment from Steve’s life when he was fighting the forces of Hydra. Since this scene will take place at a party, there may not be any action involved, but something happening in the present may trigger a memory, either good or bad. Although if we’re lucky, maybe the Red Skull will send some of his Hydra grunts to break up the shindig, and we can watch Steve kick some ass wearing formal wear.
