After wrapping AVENGERS 4, Chris Evans is saying goodbye to the biggest role of his career!
Chris Evans made his first appearance as Captain America in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and he’s made several appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since, from starring in spin-offs to brief cameos. His portrayal of the character has shaped the image of Steve Rogers for a new generation and has been critically praised, to boot.
But the time has come for Evans to step out of the suit.
Evans has said for a long time that Avengers 4 will be his last turn as Captain America, and it seems he’s true to his word. The actor wrapped filming on the upcoming film on Wednesday, sharing a heartfelt message with fans as he says goodbye to the character:
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.

Many people take this to mean that Steve Rogers will die in Avengers 4, but it feels so blatantly obvious that perhaps Marvel is finding another way to take the character out of the mix.
The still untitled fourth Avengers movie is due to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
