So apparently he’s still with you ’til the end of the line? Recently, Captain America actor Chris Evans took to Twitter to announced that he had wrapped on Avengers 4 and thanked everyone from top to bottom who had made this journey dating back to 2011 possible, starting with Captain America: The First Avenger. The internet being what it is, for lack of a better word, broke, more so than it was expected to for Captain Marvel, but this led many to speculate just what did this all mean? Was Cap’s fate sealed?
Well, pump the brakes on your speculation and opinion pieces and posts, because Captain America himself has come forward to clarify. Recently, at the ACE Comic-Con in Chicago, Chris Evans was, naturally, asked about his tweet, so he discussed that this might not mean the end, as much as some might interpret it to be that way. While some could see it as a spoiler of sorts for the future- or even end- of Steve Rogers- Evans reiterated that he would have said the same regardless of what happened because of the high emotions of the day:
“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.”
He can neither confirm nor deny anything. Perhaps either Chris Evans or Steve Rogers should run for office with spin such as this. It’s not hard to see why Evans would share this gratitude with fandom and crews that have helped turn the Marvel Cinematic Universe into what it is. And sooner or later, actors will soon depart for other ventures in their careers. We know that Chris Hemsworth, for example, has already wrapped his contract and is hard at work right now with his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson on the new Men in Black film.
What the future holds for Captain America in Avengers 4 and potentially beyond remains to be seen, but between both Avengers 4 and Infinity War being the culmination of what’s been built up in the MCU so far, coupled with film contracts ending, what do you think this spells for Steve Rogers himself?

Avengers: Infinity War is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
