Say it ain’t so, Cap!
Chris Evans announced on Twitter last week that he has wrapped on Avengers 4, leaving fans and colleagues an emotional message that certainly sounds like a goodbye to his iconic role as Steve Rogers/Captain America.
It has been rumored for some time now that the still-untitled Avengers 4 would be the final appearance of Evans as the massively popular character, and now it feels a little too real. While we don’t know for sure what the ultimate fate of the character will be, the biggest theory among fans is that the beloved All-American hero will be killed off. Either way, I think it’s safe to say that next year’s Avengers will be super depressing.
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.

While Evans prepares for his next role starring alongside Daniel Craig in The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s upcoming murder mystery, Knives Out, Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson summed up everyone’s reactions nicely:
I’m not crying. I’m weeping. There’s a difference.

I felt I just wanted to post one of my all time favourite reviews of Chris. It was by Mark Hughes of Forbes for ‘The First Avenger’. It brought tears to my eyes then – and it still does today. #ThankYouChrisEvans @ChrisEvans @thescottevans https://t.co/0jzxMKviOX pic.twitter.com/G2PUMOVuiK

I totally believe that #Avengers4 wrap is a MILESTONE for @ChrisEvans as #CaptainAmerica, but I simply don’t believe he won’t be back – too popular a character. I suspect we’ll be getting a lot of these types of tweets from the cast, maybe even to throw us off re story… https://t.co/Lo6Xy9fBh6
