After the time travel why doesn't Steve Rogers land in the same place(the time portal), rather he seems to be sitting on a bench near the lake! How's this possible?

Because he didn't time travel to get there.

Steve travelled back to an undetermined point in the past to be with Peggy Carter and stays there.

He then lives out his life in normal time and then goes to the lake when it's time for him to show up.

Now, granted we don't see him walk to the lake, but that's for dramatic effect. It has nothing to do with travelling through time to reach the present.

  • This contradicts the time travel theory as presented in the movie though. All time travel leads to a new independent parallel universe, such that there can be no changes to the reality you originally come from. Steve lived out his life in an alternate timeline which is also where he acquired the new shield he gifted to Falcon in the end. Therefore he had to use a time machine to return to the original reality at the end of the movie. Of course it also answers the question: he wanted to make an appearance that makes clear he spent a lifetime away and is just paying a visit. – S. Move Nov 13 '19 at 10:21
  • @S.Move: “he had to use a time machine to return to the original reality at the end of the movie” — or he found another way. – Paul D. Waite Nov 13 '19 at 12:47
  • Of course it's possible that he used magic or something else to travel between timelines. Point being, he couldn't get there just by living out his life. – S. Move Nov 15 '19 at 10:19
