Chris Evans reportedly close to deal to return to MCU as Captain America

Evans could reprise role for one or two Marvel projects

Actor Chris Evans seemingly hung up his shield as Captain America at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, but it appears he could be near a deal to reprise the role in a future Marvel project.

Deadline reports that Evans could be close to a deal to return as Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in a new Marvel property. Details are sparse at the moment, but Deadline sources indicate that it’s unlikely to be another instalment in the Captain America film franchise.

Evans appeared in a total of 11 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios has a history of inserting character’s into other properties following the end of their own film franchises.

It remains to be seen where Evans may pick up the shield again.
