With the release of Avengers 4 next year, it seems like the end of an era for fans. The film will end the phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and may also see some veteran MCU actors like Chris Evans leaving the MCU post his contract end. The actor took to Twitter last week that had many speculating as the end of Evans’ journey as Cap in the MCU.
However, that might not be the case, as the actor recently spoke about his tweet during an appearance at ACE Comic Con in Chicago.
“I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler,” Evans said. “I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.
“You feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel. And I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming or denying anything.”
So this sounds like good news for all Evans/Captain America fans. Evans may not be done with playing Steve Rogers on the big screen. That’s surprising, keeping in mind the nature of Evans’ tweet.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4,” Evans wrote. “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.”
This tweet gave many fans the idea that he might be leaving the franchise, but it seems like Evans is walking that back although that could be for spoiler reasons.
The filming for Avengers 4 has finally wrapped up, with the Russo Brothers celebrating the end of filming with a mysterious photo on Twitter.
Evans has always looked forward to this moment, as he knew that he cannot play the role forever.
“You want to get off the train before they push you off … I used to have thoughts of wanting to climb to the top of something, or wanting to be somebody,” Evans said to the New York Times before the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War. “But when you get the thing that you think you want and then you wake up and realize that you still have pockets of sadness and that your struggle will reinvent itself, you stop chasing after those things and it is liberating, because you realize that right here, right now, is exactly all I need.”
