While this actor had said goodbye to his character in the MCU, he is not closing the door to a potential return. But one thing is certain, it won’t happen right away.
A return to the MCU for Captain America?
In 2019, Chris Evans said goodbye to the character of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in Avengers: Endgame, the epic conclusion to the first MCU saga. After years of fighting in the modern world, the soldier decides to return to the 1940s, to experience his love with Peggy Carter. Back in our time, the now elderly man entrusts the shield to Sam Wilson, the Falcon, to become the new Captain America, which is the whole point of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier series. While this ending was a more than perfect conclusion for the superhero, his interpreter raised the possibility of playing him on the big screen once again.
In an interview with GQ, Chris Evans returned to the hypothesis of playing Captain America again in the MCU. If he does not close the door to the opportunity, he nevertheless clarifies that it is not in his imminent plans:
I will never say never, simply because it was a wonderful experience. But it’s also very valuable to me. It’s something I’m very proud of. And like I said, sometimes I can’t believe it happened. And I wouldn’t want to come out on top if I had the impression that it was all about money, that the film didn’t live up to expectations, or that it wasn’t related to the work of ‘origin. So, it’s not for now. – Chris Evans

A busy career for Chris Evans
Since hanging up the Captain America costume, Chris Evans has not been idle in recent years. The same year as Endgame, we remember seeing him in Knives Out, the police thriller by Rian Johnson (Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi) in which Daniel Craig (James Bond) searches for a murderer in a film that looks like Cluedo. In the process, he continued to film with the Russo brothers, directors to whom we owe the last two Captain America and Avengers, in The Gray Man, an action film produced by Netflix in which he faces Ryan Gosling. Finally, the actor has also launched into dubbing since he lends his voice to the character of Buzz Lightyear in the eponymous Pixar film. At the end of the year, we can’t wait to see him in Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, the animated adaptation of the comic book of the same name, in which all the members of the cast of Edgar Wright’s film reprise their roles. Enough to discover Chris Evans again in the guise of Lucas Lee.
