Even though the saga of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already over, the 2020 storyline will be about evil Captain Americas. The latest Marvel film Avengers: Endgame may have given a poignant ending to the Star-Spangled Avenger’s adventures, but the MCU is not done exploring the impact and influence of Captain America. In fact, Black Widow and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will involve different, evil versions of Cap next year.
In Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Steve Rogers was enhanced by the Super-Soldier Serum, turning him into the greatest soldier in America history. Back then, he was frozen in ice in the waning days of World War II and resurrected right before the Avengers assembled in 2021. Since then, Steve Rogers has become the leader of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, but still a fugitive from the law. His refusal to sign the Sokovia Accords in the Civil War made him a wanted international criminal to the point when Peter Parker’s gym teacher assumed Cap was a “war criminal.” However, his pure heart and desire to do the right thing has always rung true, and this, the Super Soldier Serum, is what truly made Steve Rogers both a hero and a good man.
Although the original Captain America is now out of the picture, and while Steve Rogers passed his Vibranium shield to Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie), his specter continues to loom large over the MCU. Here is how the Disney+ series and Black Widow will be toying with an evil version of Cap as well as the varying ways that would impact the MCU.
1. JOHN WALKER/U.S. AGENT IN THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER
Bucky Barnes as known as The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) could already be considered as the evil Russian alternative of Captain America, but now it looks like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will introduce another anti-Cap equivalent: Wyatt Russell as John Walker in the series streaming on Disney+. In Marvel Comics, John F. Walker was first introduced as Super-Patriot. Later he took over the Cap role from Steve Rogers before going on to become the U.S. Agent. While John Walker had similar abilities to Cap, he was also the opposite in temperament and personality – a stark contrast to the noble Steve.
It is unclear if John Walker will take on any of his comic book personae in that series. Since the U.S. Government already becomes uneasy about Sam Wilson inheriting Cap’s shield, plus he previously pals around with a former Russian assassin, the version of John Walker in The Falcon The Winter Soldier could show a third and even darker version of Captain America, that gives three different POVs on the meaning of Steve’s heroic legacy.
2. RED GUARDIAN IN BLACK WIDOW
Naturally, Russia craved their own version of Cap, and he’ll be introduced in Black Widow: David Harbour (Stranger Things) is playing Alexei Shostakov a.k.a. Red Guardian. In the comics, Red Guardian does not have superpowers, but he is a highly-trained hand-to-hand combatant – probably a graduate of the Red Room along with Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Red Guardian carries a shield similar to Captain America, that means he will be a different spin on the Star-Spangled Avenger. Furthermore, Red Guardian’s mysterious connection to Black Widow could shed light on why Natasha found it so easy to grow close to Steve when they were Avengers together.
3. ZOMBIE CAPTAIN AMERICA IN MARVEL’S WHAT IF…?
Even though What If…? does not release next year, the series will feature an evil Captain America when it debuts. What If…? will portray several twisted scenarios drawn from the 23 MCU films, and one of them will involve a zombie Cap fighting the Winter Soldier. While Marvel Zombies is something comic book fans have been clamoring Marvel to do, and they did get a taste in Spider-Man: Far From Home when Spidey (Tom Holland) had to face a zombified Iron Man in one of the illusions from Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). And while Zombie Captain America is a straight-up horror take on one of the most beloved characters in the MCU, it will be interesting (and even creepy) to see an undead Steve Rogers portrayed as an outright monster.

Anthony Mackie Says He Won’t Be the New Captain America
On the last Thursday, Marvel Studios had the entire D23 crow in a lather during the Disney+ panel. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series is a hot topic of conversation all day, and it seems like the star Anthony Mackie has just added some fuel to the fire, giving comments about what name his character will be called in this new show. Variety caught up with both Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, clarifying why the series is called The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
— Variety (@Variety) August 24, 2019
Anthony Mackie, in true Sam Wilson fashion, tried to play down any ideas that he would be dressed up as Captain America. During the presentation, one fan even yelled out the character’s name while they were on stage. The actor just called her kind and did not really dwell on it. It looks like the Falcon is here to stay even with his brand-new shiny shield.
“I’m The Falcon. I’ll always be The Falcon. The moniker will stay the same,” Anthony Mackie confirmed.
That seems pretty cut and dry like Anthony Mackie won’t become the “new” Captain America. Instead, this would probably signal a sort of addition to his character as The Falcon rather than outright replacing Steve Rogers. His words are sure to raise some eyebrows, but fans might have a reason to be skeptical of both stars and how they would deflect these kinds of questions about the new shield bearer.
After all, as some has suspected in the wake of the world without Steve Rogers, it looks like the upcoming Disney+ series will introduce one John Walker, probably more commonly known as U.S. Agent. John Walker will be played by Wyatt Russell, of J.J. Abrams’ Overlord. Alongside Russell, both Daniel Brühl and Emily VanCamp will be joining the cast. They have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Baron Helmut Zemo and Agent Sharon Carter, respectively.
As the name suggests, John Walker/U.S. Agent was turned into a pseudo-Captain America experiment, working solely on behalf of the United States government. However, he did make his comics debut as the supervillain Super-Patriot so it has yet to be revealed if Russel’s take will be friend or foe to Cap’s closest buddies. As with most things at this stage already in development, Marvel Studios is still pretty hush on the storyline, though Sebastian Stan has offered up the first bits of insight.
While appearing at a Comic Convention, the Bucky Barners actor fielded all sorts of questions from fans for about 30 minutes. By the end of the panel, Sebastian Stan had unveiled his expectations for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
“I think it is time for Bucky [Barners] to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we have met him through,” said Stan. “So, I don’t know. He might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. The scary world out there, you know? Apps, thinks like that. I don’t know what he is gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone. I think it is gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character and Anthony himself, which is always another character.”
While there are many jokes between Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie about working together, often building on their characters’ on-screen chemistry with real-life banter, Sebastian Stan has nothing but love for his co-star.
“I gave a blast working with Anthony,” said the Winter Soldier star. “It is very funny half the time. It is just gonna be a lot of that move your seat up thing. I am gonna tell him that if we are gonna be in the car, I’m gonna be in the passenger’s seat, and he is gonna be in the back, or I should be in the driver’s seat.”
So, do you think Falcon should be the new Captain America? The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t yet have a release date. The series will be streaming exclusively on Disney+, beginning filming in October.
Avengers Star Chris Evans Wants a Buddy Comedy With Chris Hemsworth
After playing the stoic pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the better part of a decade, friends and co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans are now ready to try something a little different with their careers. As for Chris Hemsworth, the actor has already started down this path, even in his later MCU movies, trading in his Asgardian sensibilities for a wild sense of humor. Between his roles in Avengers: Endgame, Ghostbusters, and the upcoming Men in Black reboot, Chris Hemsworth has made clear that he is down for more comedic roles. And it sounds like Chris Evans wants in on the action.
The duo has become good friends during their time with Marvel Studios, beginning with the first Avengers film back in 2012. In fact, they have gotten so close over the years that the God of Thunder star claims that he and Chris Evans cannot do press tours together because they would spend their time “screwing around and none of it will be on topic.”
Though it may sound like a stretch, the story Chris Hemsworth told is very true. Recently, Variety reached out to Chris Evans for a comment on the matter, and the Captain America star confirmed what his buddy had claimed. However, he did not stop there. After acknowledging the fact that the two are not allowed to do press together, Evans said that he would like to break the molds of their MCU characters and star in a buddy comedy with Hemsworth sometime in the future.
“We had too much fun together, truly like kids in school. We were separated because we could not get shit done,” Chris Evans said of his relationship with Hemsworth. Evans later added his own ideas about the next movie they should do together, “I’d love to do one of the ‘80s buddy comedies, where we could shed the characters we’re known for.”
Meanwhile, the turn for Chris Hemsworth has already started.
Even though he is still taking on serious action roles from time to time, Hemsworth is also down for a comedic turn at any time. It is this ability to be both series and hilarious in the same movie that kept the star interested in Thor when he thought he was ready to hang it up. After getting together with Taika Waititi for Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth is having more fun with the God of Thunder than ever before. And he also has made it clear that he would play the role again if given the opportunity.
So, would you like to see the Chris duo in a buddy comedy film together? Share with us in the comments!
Avengers: Endgame is now in theaters.
Marvel’s Chris Evans Played More Comic Book Characters Than You Think
With Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans has officially ended his tenure as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The end of an era has gotten Marvel fans nostalgic in such a big way, as they remember the path of Evans’ career, and how his persistent work in comic book roles led to his current iconic status.
Most people think they know Chris Evans’ comic book role off-hand. He played Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the original Fantastic Four movies (2005). He was a smarmy comedic hacker in DC’s adaptation of The Losers comic book (2010), and finally had his big breakout as Steve Rogers/Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) debut. However, some enterprising fans dug much deeper, now positing that Chris Evans has actually played over half a dozen comic book roles, in a total of 18 movies!
Here is the breakdown form a Reddit user “WhatsThisReferencing”:
1. Johnny Storm/The Human Torch – Character Based off the Fantastic Four Comic Books
Fantastic Four (2005); Fantastic Four and the Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

If you did not know it before, this should prove it beyond the shadow of a doubt: Chris Evans’ geek cred should never be questioned. This man has put more into getting us into the era of comic book movie dominance than most have (except for Djimon Hounsou). Definitely, Chris Evans made one of the biggest impacts on the genre. Here is what he recently shared about the struggle of leaving his role of Captain America behind.
“For the last month of filming, I was letting myself go to work every day and be a little overwhelming and little nostalgic and grateful. By the last day, I was bawling. I cried pretty easy, but I was definitely bawling… When you are playing a character for a long time, you start to see the parallels between what the character is going through and what you are going through,” Evans added. “And you start to look at your own conflicts and circumstances through the eyes of someone who might handle it better than you would.”
Avengers: Endgame is now in theaters.
“Avengers: Endgame:” Why Captain America Gave the Shield to Sam Wilson/Falcon Instead of Bucky Barnes
The end of Avengers: Endgame might surprise many fans, not because Captain America (starred by Chris Evans) did survive in the film, but because he decided to retire and pass his iconic shield down to the right-hand man Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie). It was an emotional scene in which might have raised more questions than answers. And one of biggest questions being, why Cap choose Falcon over his life-long friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan)?
According to Endgame screenwriters, there is a certain quality Falcon possesses that Bucky does not because in some ways he still has the risk of being mind-controlled again.
“It is pretty hard to give it to Bucky,” co-writer Christopher Markus told Variety. “As much as we love him, he’s on the dark path and is still recovering from that. And Sam is really a truly stand up guy. It was not a wildly difficult choice, certainly. I think Bucky has a lot more stories as Bucky and as someone headed on a path of atonement. And Sam has ascended into his new role.”
Also asked by Variety if Bucky’s nod of understanding was scripted, McFeely confirmed it was. “Yes,” he replied. “Our assumption is that he and Steve [Rogers] had a long conversation before Steve went back.” That means Bucky did already know about his best buddy’s decision.
McFeely went to agree with his writing partner, saying it was the story arc to dive into, especially with the series for Falcon & The Winter Soldier streaming soon on Disney+.
“The thing that gets me the most is that it is much better for both of their stories this way,” says McFeely. “Certainly, Bucky getting the shield would provide lots of stories. I do not know if it gives Sam much story. And again, there is a streaming show coming, right? I don’t know what they are doing but Sam having the mantle of Captain America, how he feels about that, and Bucky working or having some kind of relationship with HYDRA. I think that is pretty rich.”
“Again, particularly as Bucky has to confront the mind control past. Captain America has always represented the best of the idea of America, you know? And giving it to an African-America guy… it is great! Not patting ourselves on the back, I am just saying that is pointing toward a better America.”
The screenwriter also made sure to point out that he was unaware of what Marvel Studios has planned for the Disney+ show, even though he thinks Sam Wilson’s movement into the Captain America mantle should play a good part.
Avengers: Endgame is now in theaters. Spider-Man: Far From Home arrives on July 2.
Chris Evans Reveals His Favorite Captain America Scene in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
With Avengers: Endgame looming on the horizon, both fans and the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are now looking back over the last decade of the franchise, reminiscing about the good times we have had with superheroes on the big screen. There is one such star reflecting on his time with Marvel. And that is Chris Evans, who has played Captain America since The First Avenger was first released back in 2011. The actor teamed with The Hollywood Reporter to answer several questions from his beloved fans. And then it was only a matter of time before Evans was asked about his favorite scene he filmed as Captain America.
In case you’re wondering, Chris Evans did not go the route of “Oh I loved so many. I do not know how I could ever decide.” No, this guy did have his answer.
And his favorite Captain America moment is the one that many of us has shared: the elevator fight scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
“I am partial to that fight scene in the elevator,” said Chris Evans. “That ‘s the first scene in the second Captain America film. It’s my first time working with the Russos. And it was also the first time where it felt like Cap was on his own. The first Cap movie, I felt like everyone was holding my hand. The First Avenger movie I just did my best not to get in the way. Then the second Cap movie is the one where I really felt, I suppose pressure. And that first elevator fight scene came out great in my opinion.”
You can watch again this fight scene below.
That fight scene quickly became a favorite amongst Captain America fans. And it’s still regarded as one of, if not the best fight sequence in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ever since this scene debuted in 2014, other fights in Marvel films have gotten bigger and bolder, but none has been as captivating or flawlessly executed as the elevator fight. And when you mix in the personal context for Chris Evans, it is no wonder that this is still his favorite scene ever.
And when the credits finally roll on Avengers: Endgame next month, the stories of some characters that we have spent a decade watching will likely come to an end.
While nothing has been officially confirmed either way, the finale of this Infinity Saga is probably going to be the last time we’ll see Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark, and Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers.
During a Q&A with The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Evans was asked about his memories from the set of Endgame, and he was quick to bring up his last day.
“Getting emotional on the last day of filming,” the actor said. “It was surprisingly emotional.”
Still, there is no telling exactly what Chris Evans was expecting from his last day. But many of us would assume that it would be incredibly emotional to hang up his shield for the last time. Even if Evans is to come back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a cameo or something in the future, Avengers: Endgame will still mark the end of an era. And it is likely that everyone on that set had a difficult time saying goodbye.
What about you? What is your favorite Captain America scene in the MCU so far? Share with us in the comments!
We will be seeing the return of Chris Evans in Avengers: Endgame on April 26!
Robert Downey Jr. Breaks the Internet With BFFs Iron Man and Captain America Image

We all love seeing cheery posts from the Avengers: Endgame cast, especially since many fans are expecting the upcoming film will have some dark twists. Also, there has been a lot of speculation on whether Tony and Cap would survive. In fact, there was even a poll to see who fans would rather keep between the two if they only got to choose one. The final results were fairly close so far, and many folks felt so hard for their choices, though, but Iron Man won out in the end.
While this was definitely such a tough call to make, many fans theorize that Captain America lost the vote because more theories and rumors are circulating that Chris Evans won’t be returning, especially since the actor sent an ominous goodbye tweet back in October. Also, there are multiple theories about Cap floating around from tragic to bittersweet. However, the Avengers co-director even added more confusion when he said that Chris Evans would not be finished in the MCU after all, pointing toward events of the upcoming crossover film. So, it seems that Chris Evans might have a bit more left to do with his Captain America.
We will find out what happens to Cap and Iron Man when Avengers: Endgame premieres in theaters on April 26.
Other upcoming MCU film includes Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5.
In the meantime, Captain Marvel is currently playing in theaters.
Robert Downey Jr. Jokes Chris Evans as His Prince Charming with the Disney Meme
It has been years since Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have properly shared the screen in Marvel film. But now, a new meme reunites the fan-favorite pair in a pretty amusing way.
Earlier this week, Robert Downey Jr. shared a meme of photos of himself and his buddy Chris Evans. In the picture, their outfits happen to match up with the costumes for Disney’s Snow White and Prince Charming. After the meme garnered a lot of attention from Marvel fans, Chris Evans took a response rather pretty hilariously, joking that he turned the series of photos into his new screensaver and headshot.
Well I don’t know how you keep nailing these, but thank you for my new screensaver. And headshot. How do I make this my ringtone? https://t.co/eXGKmUyLiN

The characters of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) famously faced off in the Civil War, ultimately leading them still not interacting in Avengers: Infinity War. While it is unclear what is happening for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, obviously a reunion between the two would have some interesting ramifications.
“What is interesting about these characters is that they are all heroes,” co-director Joe Russo explained in the film’s commentary track. “And that, irrespective of the events of [Captain America:] Civil War and the fact that they caused physical damage to Rhodey [War Machine] when aliens show up with the intent to destroy the Earth, he doesn’t hesitate, as a superhero, to invite in other superheroes who can help him defend the planet. And I think it’ll be a much different situation if Tony [Stark] were here. If Tony and Steve [Rogers] had to see each other for the first time, it would be much more complicated.”
“Tony is too intelligent and has too big of an ego to be a stooge to the government,” noted Russo. “He’ll take whatever by-product came out of Civil War then use it to his own advantage, keeping the Avengers alive in a way that he feels like is less the compromise, the better for him. So, I think he’s not been actively pursuing bringing Steve, Natasha, Sam, and Wanda to justice. In fact, he has been turning the other way.”
In the meantime, other Marvel Cinematic Universe films will be hitting theaters.
The Fan Art Imagines the Tragic Death of Captain America in Avengers: Endgame
The writing is on the wall. And Marvel fans are still dreading the end of Captain America’s fate in Avengers: Endgame.
The star Chris Evans has sent fans into a frenzy with his statements about the future of his character Captain America, with many people dreading the potential death of Steve Rogers. Recently, artist BossLogic has riled fans up once again with his latest work. That depicts the final stand of Steve Rogers against the Mad Titan, Thanos.
You can see the fan art below.

We could hardly believe that Cap’s death will be this much tragic. Because if he’s going to go out swinging, it’ll be as the star-spangled champion fans have to come to know and love over the last decade. And even so, he might not go out at all.
Chris Evans had driven fans into a frenzy when he posted on his Twitter after finishing filming Avengers: Endgame, with many fans thinking he was saying goodbye to the character and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It’s an emotional day to say the least,” he wrote. “Playing this role over the last eight years has been my honor. To everyone in front of the cameras, behind it, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
Once the touching tweet made the rounds, Chris Evans had to clarify his statements during an appearance at ACE Comic-Con in Chicago.
“I should clarify that I know when I did tweet something that made many people think that it’s in some way a spoiler,” he said. “But I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I’d tweet the exact same thing. The last day of filming was such a very emotional day, and it’s the culmination of almost ten years of filming with 22 movies. This unbelievable tapestry.”
Shortly after that, co-director of Avengers: Endgame, Joe Russo spoke out on Chris Evans’ role in the MCU during an interview with USA Today. From there, Russo teased that Captain America’s Chris Evans might not be done after the dust settles in the upcoming crossover film.
“I think it’s more emotional for him than it was us because he has not done yet. I will not explain what that really means, but fans will soon understand what I am talking about,” Joe Russo said.
Of course, all of these comments still could not put fans’ minds at ease. Everyone wants to know what the future will lie for Captain America and even Chris Evans. We will learn the fate of Steve Rogers when Avengers: Endgame arrives on April 26th next year.
“Avengers: Endgame” New Trailer May Have Teased Captain America’s Fate
Marvel Studios has released their first trailer for Avengers: Endgame alongside its poster. And that may have included a subtle hint at Captain America’s fate in the film.
The Avengers: Endgame trailer teases a shot of a black and white photo of Cap’s old love, Peggy Carter. This is not just any photo though. It is the same photo, in the same compass, from Captain America: The First Avengers. From there, he placed his compass on the control panel of Red Skull’s aircraft while he said his tearful goodbye to Peggy over the radio.
The photo was one of the last things Captain America saw before he “died” in the crash that stopped Red Skull’s destructive plans. The presence of the compass could foreshadow his fate in the upcoming movie.
Peggy Carter passed away during the events of Captain America: Civil War. That seems to strengthen the sense of foreboding from the image. It feels like Cap is getting ready to reunite with Peggy in a place where their unnatural age difference won’t matter, and where they can finally go on that date he postponed back in the 1940s.
It also appears that Black Widow’s Scarlett Johansson is the one holding the compass in the trailer but not Captain America. This suggests that either Captain America has opened up to Black Widow about his loss, or possibly that Black Widow is just holding onto the compass after Captain America meets his fate.
While fans have been speculating that Captain America will fall in the fourth Avengers movie for some time, speculation became rampant following Chris Evans’ farewell to his character on social media after wrapping on Endgame.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4,” he wrote. “It’s an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last eight year has been my honor. To everyone in front of or behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
At a convention soon after, Chris Evans was trying to walk back that impression.
“I should clarify that I do know I tweeted something that would make many people think that it’s in some way a spoiler,” he said. “But I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I’d have tweeted the same thing. The last day of filming was such an emotional day, and it’s the culmination of almost ten years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.”
“You feel a lot more emotional than I think, even I thought I would feel. And I feel it’s appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it did have a ripple effect, but I’m neither confirming or denying anything.”
Recently, co-director Joe Russo said that Chris Evans would not be done with his Captain America yet. What will actually happen, we’ll find the answers until Avengers: Endgame arrives on April 26th, 2019.
Chris Evans “Isn’t Done” With Captain America, Said “Avengers 4” Director
When it comes to casting, few companies got it right like Marvel Studios. Since Robert Downey Jr. debuted his character Iron Man/Tony Stark, the studio has brought in just the right actors to play its superheroes. So you can see why fans felt so upset when reports said Chris Evans is done with his Captain America. However, thanks to a recent interview, it seems that the star will have a bit more left to do with the hero.
Recently, USA Today shared an interview with Joe Russo, one of the directors on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. From there, Joe Russo was asked about Chris Evan’s goodbye made teasing his exist as Captain America. And Russo had the following to say:
“I think it’s more emotional for him than it was us because he’s not done yet. I will not explain what it means, but fans will soon understand what I’m talking about.”
Although Russo refused to tell more, the tease has got fans curious as to what the director could really mean. After all, reports have twisted for some time about Chris Evans leaving the MCU once Avengers 4 wraps, but that might not a full story.
For anyone who feels unfamiliar with the tweet which sparked Steve Rogers’ stepping down, it did happen back in October. Chris Evans shared on his Twitter to confirm his work on Avengers 4 has come to an end, and the touching post seems to be his fond farewell to Captain America.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4.” Chris Evans wrote. “It’s an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last eight years has been my honor. For everyone in front of the camera or behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
The heartbreaking post made fans worldwide freak out as they had prepared to bid Chris Evans goodbye. Even so, for those of you still holding out hope, Steve might not entirely hang up his shield. The star returned to social media shortly after that. He indicated that his message didn’t mean to tease Captain America’s fate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I should clarify that I know I tweeted something that could make many people think that it’s in some way a spoiler,” he said to fans at ACE Comic-Con. “I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I’d have tweeted the same thing. My last day of filming was a very emotional day. And it was the culmination of almost ten years of filming with 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.
“You may feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel. And I feel it’s appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect. But I’m neither confirming or denying anything.”
Now, it seems that there could be more possibilities of Chris Evans’ future with MCU than expected. Russo’ statement doesn’t confirm the actor will appear in future Marvel flicks beyond Avengers 4. But the upcoming blockbuster may still leave the door open for more Steve Rogers down the line.
For now, we’ll wait to see if Cap survives in the battle with Thanos when Avengers 4 drops next summer.
