Avengers: Endgame Star Chris Evans Discusses Potentially Suiting Up For The Last Time


As one of the original stars of the MCU, it’s generally assumed that Chris Evans is finishing his run in the franchise with the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. And while the actor himself is refusing to confirm either way, he certainly regards this month’s release as the end of an era in some ways.

In an interview with E! News, the Captain America actor was asked how it felt putting on his suit for potentially the last time.

“Potentially…that’s the word we’re using across the board,” Evans said. “Potentially to everything. Regardless of what happens in the movie, it still was the culmination of a 10-year experience, 22 movie tapestry, so the last day of filming on this movie was incredibly emotional.”

You may recall back in October of last year, when Evans shared a heartfelt message via Twitter on his last day of filming, in which he thanked his fans and colleagues for all the memories. While many saw his tweet as confirmation that he was hanging up the shield, the actor later claimed that he would’ve shared the same message, whether he was exiting or not.

Indeed, in the same E! News interview, Mark Ruffalo mentioned that Evans gets emotional at the end of every Marvel movie, and the star very much agreed.

“I do,” Evans admitted. “I feel very connected to this character, to this experience, to these people. It’s been a wonderful journey for me and it’s been a huge part of my life and truly…everybody says ‘on this movie we got along so well’, but we got along so well! It really is a family. We never lose contact between films and so having this kind of come to an end, and it is kind of an end of this arc, and it was emotional.”

The upcoming Avengers: Infinity War sequel is set to bring the MCU’s current era to a close, which almost certainly means a few key players dropping out of the saga. Cap in particular just might be the film’s most widely predicted departee, though the question remains of whether he makes his exit with a heroic death or a peaceful retirement.

Much to the despair of the fans, even Evans has cracked a few jokes about his character possibly kicking the bucket, though we’ll find out if the internet has been premature in mourning his demise when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
