Although Chris Evans has bid farewell to his iconic role as Steve Rogers in Avengers: Endgame, he recently teased a possible return as Captain America in the MCU’s upcoming Multiverse Saga, but with a catch.
In a recent interview at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, Evans shared that it would require a “near-perfect recipe” for him to come back as Captain America, as he believes he had a “good run” and that returning would be a “tall order.” While Evans acknowledges that there are more stories to tell with Steve, he currently doesn’t feel right about returning.
In Avengers: Endgame, fans last saw Steve Rogers going back in time to return the Infinity Stones and living a full life with Peggy Carter. In the film’s final moments, an older Steve passed on the shield to his friend Sam Wilson, played by Anthony Mackie, who is set to take up the Captain America mantle in the upcoming series, Captain America 4. Despite speculation that Evans may return in Captain America 4 or the next two Avengers movies, it remains unclear if he will reprise his role.
Although Evans is currently working on new projects, such as the Apple TV+ action rom-com “Ghosted” and the Prime Video Christmas movie Red One opposite Dwayne Johnson, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Captain America 4, set to hit theaters on May 3, 2024. With the introduction of the multiverse and the possibility of alternate versions of characters, it’s uncertain how the MCU will bring back its beloved hero. Marvel Studios keeps their plans tightly under wraps, so fans will have to wait and see what’s in store for the future of the MCU.
