Wrapping 'Avengers 4,' Chris Evans hangs up Cap's shield

Wrapping 'Avengers 4,' Chris Evans hangs up Cap's shield

"Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honour".

Sure, Evans could simply be saying a heartfelt thank you to everyone on set, but we doubt it.

Although we knew Avengers 4 would be Evans' last - his contract is now up - and that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now moving into a phase that does not include numerous original heroes including Iron Man and hulk, many fans continued to hold out hope that Cap would return.

Now, after announcing last March that Avengers 4 would be his last run at Captain America, Chris Evans took to Twitter to make it official.

Senators view Federal Bureau of Investigation report on Kavanaugh
In an interview, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Dick Durbin of IL said McConnell was "hell-bent on getting this done" this week. The scope of the investigation has become the latest political battle in the larger war over Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court.


It certainly sounds like a goodbye to Evans' iconic role as Steve Rogers/Captain America, and while we don't know the ultimate fate of the character, the biggest theory among fans is that Cap might actually die in next year's highly-anticipated follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War. There have been a few of those kinds of references that many fans have noticed in recent weeks, especially with people getting excited over the impending release of Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

Avengers 4 will conclude this iteration of the series, with Marvel chief Kevin Feige hinting that the new roster would be more diverse and have at least 50% women.

Given the particular high stakes of Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled follow-up, it seems that Rogers might meet his demise while trying to save the universe from Thanos, played by Josh Brolin. Since then he has gone on to appear in five movies as Cap. "We're not just doing reshoots, we're going to finish the movie, which we really didn't get to finish totally when we left it a year ago".
