It will be the end of an era for Chris Evans fans, as the actor has finally hinted that his journey as Captain America is coming to an end.
With the end of production for Avengers 4, Evans took to Twitter to pay his gratitude to his fans and how this role changed his life. Global star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has also expressed his support, congratulating him for his iconic role in the MCU.
What a run you had brother. Congrats on breathing life into such an iconic character. Keep on keepin’ on ?? https://t.co/yg38AcXNUi

Meanwhile, Johnson will be playing Black Adam in the DCEU, but is always keen to express his support to those on the other side.
This news came as a shock to fans when Evans posted a touching tweet, suggesting that he could be done with his role as Steve Rogers post his contractual end with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4,” Evans posted on Twitter. “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.”
Many fans are anticipating the sequel to Infinity War next year, but as revealed by Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, the end scenes of the film were filmed during the reshoots.
“Well we’re doing reshoots starting in September,” Ruffalo said to the Marvelists podcast a few months back. “And then we’ll go back into the international tour, we’ll go on tour. Then you guys will get the second installment. Which we don’t even know what it’s gonna be yet. 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 last year.”
Avengers 4 hits the theatres on May 3, 2019.
