Captain America actor, Chris Evans, is coming back to reprise the role of the star spangled Avenger in a future MCU project.
Deadline reports the details are vague but it’s believed Evans is going to return as Steve Rogers aka Captain America in at least one Marvel property with the door open for a second film. Sources add it’s unlikely to be a new Captain America installment and more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Man 3,appearing in films like Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Evans had been very public that he would be hanging up the shield after Avengers: Endgamewith Marvel going as far as having the character hand the shield to Anthony Mackie’s character at the end of the film in a passing of the torch type of moment. Things had changed in recent months as the idea was floated of Evans returning to the MCU as Rogers to see if there was any interest and as the weeks went by, Evans became more game to the idea with the two sides coming to agreement at the top of the year.
Now as stated earlier, it’s not clear if Evans is coming back for cameos, sequels, or prequels at the moment. But Captain America/Steve Rogers will be returning to the MCU at some point…
