Chris Evans Posts Emotional Goodbye To Captain America After Wrapping 'Avengers 4'

Chris Evans has always seemed to have one foot out the door, just waiting for his Marvel contract to end. Depending on his mood or the other opportunities afforded him, he's been either exhausted of playing Captain America or in love with every moment. What we know is that Cap managed to survive Avengers: Infinity War, but his status at the end of Avengers 4 is very much up in the air. What we know for absolutely certain now, though, is that Evans has hung up his shield for good.

After wrapping all of his scenes in Avengers 4, Evans posted an emotional tweet saying goodbye to the Captain America role that has been a part of his life for nearly a decade...

This is sad but not really a surprise. Evans has badly wanted to do other things that his Marvel commitments have denied him. He did manage to find time to make his directorial debut, Before We Go, back in 2014 around the time he really started openly talking about a future outside of Marvel.  And for those who think this might be a spoiler, we still don't know how Captain America's story ends. We could see the patriotic Avenger walk off into the sunset when all is said and done.

We'll find out when Avengers 4 opens on May 3rd 2019.
