Chris Evans Opens Up On His Emotional Last Day Filming Avengers: Endgame


Chris Evans recently responded to a series of fan questions in a new video from The Hollywood Reporter, and among the insights offered by the Avengers: Endgame star was a spoiler-free recollection of his final day working on the upcoming film.

When asked about his last memory from the set of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Captain America actor answered with a vague recollection of a day that really brought out his sentimental side.

“Getting emotional on the last day of filming. It was surprisingly emotional.”

As some of you may recall, Evans took to Twitter on his final day last year to post a heartfelt message thanking the cast, crew and audiences for all the memories. Many fans interpreted this post as the actor saying goodbye to the character of Steve Rogers, though neither he nor anyone else at Marvel Studios is willing to offer any confirmation on the matter.

Regardless, if Endgame really is to be Evans’ final film in the franchise, it sounds like he’ll have a few mementos to cherish from his run. When asked if he got to keep any props from the movies, Evans gave a couple of example, while suggesting that Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has been a little more ambitious with his choice of souvenirs.

“They gave me the shield. They gave me the cowl. I’m gonna ask for the full suit. I never ask for the full suit. Hemsworth got the full suit. I want the full suit.”

Evans was also asked about his favorite scene from his time in the franchise, and his answer was one that plenty of fans would probably agree on.

“I’m partial to that fight scene in the elevator [in Captain America: The Winter Soldier]. That was the first scene we shot in the second Captain America movie. That was my first time working with the Russos. It was the first time where it felt like Cap was kind of on his own. The first Cap movie, you really felt like everybody was holding my hand, and the first Avengers movie, I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one where I kind of really felt, I suppose, pressure. And that elevator fight scene came out really great in my opinion.”

With the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, Cap once more finds himself as part of a team, though fans are a little nervous about his chances of fighting his way out of this one. It’s long been assumed that the film will feature some heroic deaths, but we’ll find out if The First Avenger is among those to make the sacrifice play when the film hits theaters on April 26th.
