Chris Evans confirms he’s done with playing Captain America

June 1st, 2020 by Marc Comments

We already knew it, but Chris Evans has confirmed the worse… he will NOT play Captain America again.

On the lastest episode of The Graham Norton Show Evans said he believes he went out on a high note with Avengers: Endgame and that he feels it was the right end for the character, when asked if it was the end for Cap, he replied: “Yes, I think it is.

“It was a great run and we went out on such a high note that it would be risky to revisit it in my opinion. It was such a good experience and I think it’s better left that way.”

This is, as I said above, not exactly new news as late last year the star explained that the training is taking its toll on him and he feels the character’s arc is over: “You never say never. I love the character. I don’t know.”

He added: “It’s not a hard no, but it’s not an eager yes either.

“I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together.”

 

While I’m still excited for the future of the MCU, it just feels that having Robert Downey Jnr and Evans missing as Tony Stark and Steve Rogers will be a rather massive void to fill.

What say you all? Will we see them return down the line? Let me know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
