Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. says it was time for he and Captain America actor Chris Evans, who led the Avengers team throughout the Infinity Saga, to get off the so-called “bus” after Marvel Studios concluded the epic storyline in this year’s Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame saw the end of both Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America. The two actors have yet to renew their contracts with Marvel Studios and given the events of the recent Marvel epic, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans return to their respective roles of Iron Man and Captain America.
In the new issue of Disney twenty-three, Robert Downey Jr. opened up about he and Chris Evans’ exit from the MCU, explaining that it was time for the two to retire and that they’ll be glad to be there for the rest of the team when they retire in the future:
“We had to get off. We opted to, and knew it was part of the job to get off the bus while it rolled on to other destinations. There’s something very sobering about it. I’m glad he and I will be there to welcome others as they retire their jerseys.”
