Despite the recent send-off from Chris Evans after Avengers 4 reshoots on Twitter that suggested he was saying goodbye to the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America. Many believed this tweet was a sign that Evans has ended his run as the Marvel hero and assumed the tweet was final goodbye to fans.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
That might not actually the truth of it.
In an interview with USAToday, director Joe Russo seemingly suggests that isn’t exactly the case and we could be seeing more of Evans in the role.
“I think it was more emotional for him than us, only because he’s not done yet and I won’t explain what that means. The audience will soon understand what I’m talking about “
Going by this statement and the recent announcement about that Disney+ series focusing on a Falcon/Bucky team-up from Marvel Studios, it could mean that neither Sam or Bucky are getting the shield passed down to them anytime soon.
Joe Russo and Chris Evans have worked together on an impressive four Marvel Studios films with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers 4. Will there be more in the future? Only time will tell.
Avengers 4 is set to be released on May 3rd and that’s when we are expected to learn Cap’s actual fate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
