Captain America once promised to be there until the end of the line, and for Chris Evans, that end appears to have arrived.
Evans tweeted Thursday that he has just finished filming his last scenes for Avengers 4, seeming to confirm that he is officially done portraying the iconic superhero. "Playing this role over the last eight years has been an honor," he writes, also thanking fans for the memories. This comes after Evans previously suggested he might be finished with the Marvel film franchise in a Marchinterview with The New York Times, saying, "You want to get off the train before they push you off."
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.
At the time of that interview, Evans said he expected his last hurrah to be the Avengers 4 reshoots, which he is done with now. Evans previously signed a contract with Marvel that expires with Avengers 4, the mysterious (and still untitled) sequel to Avengers: Infinity War that opens next summer. It remains to be seen whether Captain America might die or retire in that film, but Evans' tweet sure makes it sound like he gets a definitive ending.
