Chris Evans gives some hope regarding his ‘goodbye Captain America’ post PLUS the Russos post cryptic image to mark end of filming

October 14th, 2018 by Marc Comments

You all may recall last week that Chris Evans seemingly said goodbye to the Captain America role via Instagram.

But now the actor is saying to relax, it may not be what you think.

The original story can be found here, but the gist is that the actor had just wrapped on Avengers 4 and had this to say:

“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. 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.”

And, in fairness, it does sound pretty final

But Evans, addressing the post had this to say this week: “I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in someway a spoiler.

“I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.

“You feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel. And I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming or denying anything.”

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

If we had to guess, we’d imagine Evans/Cap will be killed off in the MCU. However, there is a chance that he goes down the Robert Downey Jnr route and appear in cameos in future movies.

But whatever happens, we thing the Avengers will be forever changed after Thanos is defeated. It’s just how that we’re not sure about.

Oh, and before we go…

The Russo brothers shared this cryptic image to mark the end of filming on Avengers 4.

But what is it?

Thoughts?

Avengers 4 arrives on May 3rd, 2019.

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….
