Chris Evans Rumored To Return As Captain America To Fight Wolverine

Chris Evans is returning to the MCU as Captain America. The news arrived via Deadline last week that the actor was in talks to reprise the Sentinel of Liberty for at least one new Marvel project, something that shocked fans as Avengers: Endgame perfectly wrapped up the character’s hero’s journey. Evans himself has played dumb about the report on social media, but it seems there’s something to the story.

In fact, a new rumor has emerged which may reveal how Marvel plans to bring Cap back. According to insider Daniel Richtman, Evans will be returning for three separate productions if discussions go well, all of which would get him back in the fold in different ways. The most eyebrow-raising of them is that the hero might face off against Wolverine.

As per Richtman’s Patreon page, one unknown project will see Evans play Steve Rogers encountering the MCU’s Logan in the past. This would be taking place after Endgame, from Steve’s point of view, following on from his decision to travel back to the 1940s to be with Peggy Carter. It’s unclear which period his fight with Wolverine would be in, but he’d have to be of fighting age, so maybe the 60s or 70s at the latest.

Of course, there’s been much speculation about how the X-Men leader could be introduced into this universe. Obviously, though, the first thing fans would want to see is Logan rubbing shoulders with other heroes, like when Spider-Man was dropped into Captain America: Civil War. So, having Wolvie show up and fight Cap – adamantium vs. vibranium – would certainly be an epic way of bringing him aboard the franchise.

The other project would apparently involve Evans playing an alt-universe Steve who works for HYDRA and the details of the third are not known yet. If Captain America really is coming back, though, then it sounds like Marvel is going to make it worth Evans’ while.
