While Chris Evans hasn’t been shy about eventually moving on from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor has now confirmed that Avengers 4 will mark his last appearance as Captain America.
In what will come as sad, but expected news for many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, actor Chris Evans has confirmed that the reshoots for Avengers 4 will mark the end of his role as Steve Rogers/Captain America in the film franchise.
The news isn’t considerably shocking, as Evans hasn’t been shy about his wishes to pursue other avenues once his contract was up, coupled with his desire to not overstay his welcome. “You want to get off the train before they push you off,” Evans told the New York Times. Evans’ contract was supposed to be up after a third Avengers film, be he opted to extend it to see the story through until the end.
Many suspect that Cap will perish by the end of the next two Avengers films; in the comics, Captain America was “killed” after the events of Civil War, leading his best friend Bucky Barnes to take up the mantle for quite some time. Whether a similar instance will happen in the films remains to be seen, but many fans can remain satisfied with the performances Evans has delivered over the last ten years.
