It Appears Chris Evans Is Done With Captain America and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Evans is hanging up his shield

Actor Chris Evans just wrapped reshoots on the yet-to-be-titled fourth Avengers film, which it appears will be his last turn as Captain America. Evans has long intimated that he was approaching the end of his run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a Thursday tweet would confirm as much.

Evans tweeted his appreciation to the cast, crew, and fans of the films, saying it has been an honor to play Captain America/Steve Rogers over the past eight years. The 37-year-old made his MCU debut in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and will have appeared in 10 MCU films by the time the fourth Avengers movie hits theatres in the spring of 2019.

In what’s perhaps his greatest crossover performance yet, Evans joined Lana Del Rey this week in taking aim at Kanye West’s pro-Donald Trump rhetoric.

Evans has played a key role in Marvel and Disney’s multi-billion dollar franchise. Avengers 4 is set to arrive in theatres on May 3, 2019.
