Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely would prefer Chris Evans to stay retired from the Captain America role to keep the emotional impact of Avengers: Endgame intact.
Markus and McFeely, whom wrote the script for Avengers: Endgame among other Marvel Cinematic Universe films have nothing but love for their time writing for Chris Evans’ Captain America after all these years. But based on how Avengers: Endgame concludes with Captain America traveling back in time to start a new life with Peggy Carter to then live in present day as an elderly man, the writers believe Chris Evans returning would cheapen the film’s ending.
Here’s what the Avengers: Endgame writers had to say about a potential return of Chris Evans’ Captain America in the MCU:
Christopher Markus: I also don’t want to. I love writing for Cap, I love Evans. But I really feel, much like Tony, we got them to a place where they don’t need to do it anymore. I’d hate to gin up something hokey to get them back.
Stephen McFeely: I do worry that if they do stuff like that, it’ll ding Endgame in the rearview mirror. This is such an important and such an interesting moment in movies, because a very successful studio just put their tools down.
Chris Evans has officially passed the moniker of Captain America to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson/Falcon. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are set to star in an upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which follows the titular duo’s adventures after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Chris Evans last appeared as Captain America in Avengers: Endgame. Here is the official synopsis:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Endgame is now available to own on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. It will also be available to stream on Disney+ when it launches on November 12, 2019.
