Chris Evans to End Run as Captain America After 'Avengers 4' (Report)

Chris Evans to End Run as Captain America After 'Avengers 4' (Report)

It appears as if Chris Evans is done playing Captain America.

In a new profile in the New York Times, the 36-year-old actor seemingly made it clear that he won’t be returning in the fan favorite role.

“You want to get off the train before they push you off,” he told the publication. The New York Times added, “For now, he has no plans to return to the franchise.”

Chris will appear in next month’s Avengers: Infinity War, as well as the untitled Avengers 4 due in theaters in 2019. Chris first began appearing in Marvel films as Steve Rogers/Captain America back in 2011. He’s been in standalone movies as well as had cameos in other Marvel films.

    good for him. I quite the fan of the franchise, but i want it to end on a highnote. if they drag it out too much for money reasons, the quality will surely drop.

    lets see.. how chris leaving will affect the franchise.

    Considering some superhero’s are slated to die in infinity war – he is probably one of them

    How is this news? He had a six movie contract, the three Cap movies and three avengers. after the third avenger movie was split into two parts, he’s technically in seven, but contract wise its the six he was contracted for. this has been known for years

  • Reilly

    I think most know this is going to be his last film along with at least one other but in Steve’s case, hopefully he won’t be killed. It could go the way of the comics and have him give up being Captain America and walking away. That way a few years down the line if the films are still going, he could come back.

    How can you say that when the article says he’s in A4?

    There’s a little thing called contract negotiation. It’ll come out eventually that they asked him to do the other three movies he turned down, but he’s had enough. You can see he’s had enough.

  • Casey C

    I’m aware, but he has stated repeatedly over the years that six was his limit, that was his contract and that he was done after that. therefore it’s been known for years that he was done after six. it’s been repeated, by him and Marvel, for years. yes, they could try to renegotiate, but he’s been vocal for years of that not happening.

    Please, that boy changes his mind with the tides. One day he’s sick and tired, the next he’s wistful. Of course Marvel have tried to keep him and I’m sure he considered it at times while at others adamantly refusing. Sadly we all know which side won.
