Fans have been on edge about the what’s going to happen to the longest running here in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since even before “Avengers: Infinity War” came out. And after seeing Thanos’ cosmic finger snap wipe so many heroes from existence that worrying has ramped up quite a bit as we all wait in great anticipation for “Avengers 4” to land next April.
And now a tweet from Captain America himself, Chris Evans, has fans even more freaked out. In the tweet, Evans announced that he has wrapped up filming on “Avengers 4” and continued on with a message that makes it very much sound like he’s completely done with the MCU now. With the subtext being that Captain America may very well not survive the upcoming climax of the MCU’s first decade.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least,” Evans tweeted. “Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
Evans has hinted at his desire to move on from the MCU before, most recently back in march in a New York Times profile which declared that he “expects that planned reshoots [for “Avengers 4”] in the fall will mark the end of his tenure in the familiar red, white and blue super suit.”
But there has never been any sort of official declaration that Evans actually is exiting the franchise — his contract is up after “Avengers 4,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean he wouldn’t re-up. But this tweet might be that declaration, though it’s certainly vague enough that he could keep the door open for more forays into in the MCU even if he were to take a backseat after whatever universe-altering events happen in “Avengers 4.”
For now, though, fans are taking Evans’ tweet as indicating that Captain America is going to die next year.
Whatever is actually going on with Captain America, we’ll find out for sure on May 3, when “Avengers 4” hits theaters everywhere.
