Today was Chris Evans last day on the Avengers 4 set. And his last day suiting up as Captain America. Fans knew this day was coming. And even though we expected it, it’s so hard to say goodbye. (Yes, I’m singing to you Chris!)
Evans began his journey in the MCU as Steve Rogers in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. He signed on to play the character in The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and many cameos in a number of other Marvel films. Throughout the Avengers series, he has always been a beacon of hope for the MCU. Alas, Evans expressed his desire to move on from the character a few years ago, telling the New York Times, “You want to get off the train before they push you off.”
Evan’s departure has sparked panic on the Twitter-verse. Fans are expressing their gratitude, sadness, and fear that Steve Rogers will not survive Avengers 4. Evan some celebrities are expressing their emotions. Ryan Reynolds tweeted “I’m not crying. I’m weeping. There’s a difference.”
There is talk of another Captain America rising in his place, but…come on…no one compares to Chris Evans! And from all of us at Geek Girl Authority, Thank You!
Read his farewell below. Avengers 4 opens May 3, 2019.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. 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.
