Captain America might be hanging his shield up for good.
According to a profile in the New York Times, Chris Evans might be retiring his role as the first Avenger after Avengers 4. He reportedly has no plans to return to the franchise once Avengers 4 hits theaters in May 2019. “You want to get off the train before they push you off,” Evans said.
Evans has played Captain America since 2011, when Captain America: The First Avenger hit the screens, and has become one of the franchise’s most revered heroes. In 2017, Downey also hinted at the possibility of retiring his superhero suit.
Fans have speculated Captain America might die in Avengers: Infinity War or the as yet untitled Avengers 4, but viewers will just have to wait and see whether or not Evans really does retire for good.
