The closing moments of Avengers: Endgame would seem to make it abundantly clear that Steve Rogers’ arc in the main Marvel Cinematic Universe was drawn to a suitably fitting close, and most of the speculation surrounding Chris Evans’ impending return to the fold has focused on the multiversal possibilities.
Of course, that’s because it would be real slap in the face for the fans who took the actor’s portrayal of Captain America to their hearts over the course of a decade if Marvel simply scrubbed his happy ending from continuity and brought him back as though nothing happened. Inevitably, Evans has already found himself linked to at least half a dozen different projects, but until we get official confirmation about where we can expect to see him next, nothing can be definitively ruled out.

On that note, insider Daniel Richtman is now claiming that the original Captain America will fight his successor, leading to an epic showdown between Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson. The tipster doesn’t offer any further details as to how, when, where or why it’ll happen, but he does note that it would be an “evil” version of Evans’ Cap.
Of course, the rivalry between Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie has already extended to the title of ‘America’s Ass,’ and a good old fashioned bout of fisticuffs between the two would no doubt go down a storm with fans, even though some of them are already worried that the franchise’s latest Captain America could end up being overshadowed. In any case, it’ll be nice to see the original Avenger back on screen again and we’ll be patiently waiting to learn just what exactly Marvel has in mind for his return.
