In a recent post, Robert Downey Jr. responded to Chris Evans apparently leaving the Captain America role.
The post in question comes on the heels of Chris Evans wrapping up filming as Captain America for the Avengers 4 reshoots. In a recent Tweet, Chris Evans stressed what an honor it was to play the role for eight years. While he did not confirm that he would be leaving the role, his language in the post highly implied that his time as Captain America was coming to a close.
Earlier today, Robert Downey Jr. had what can be described as the perfect response to this τweet. In Downey Jr.’s response, he posted a picture of Woody and Buzz from Toy Story in Iron Man and Captain America gear. The picture had a caption that said “To Infinity War and Beyond.” Above the image was his tweet where he stated that we all know who the real sheriff in down is:
We all know who the real sheriff in town is @ChrisEvans
