Could Evans be ditching his most famous role?
In just a few short weeks, Avengers: Infinity War is set to debut in theatres and destroy multiple box office records in the process. All of the MCU's beloved superheroes are set to reappear in the upcoming film, as Tony Stark and co. must put aside their differences established in Civil War in order to take down Thanos.
However, new reports are suggesting that Chris Evans, who has brought Captain America to life in several Marvel productions, in both solo films and as a part of the Avengers, may be leaving his post after the Infinity War sequel. Evans has already finished filming his contributions to the untitled Avengers 4, which is due out in 2019.
Speaking with the New York Times, the actor has hinted at a possible departure from the MCU after this epic conclusion to Thanos' reign of terror. Evans has revealed that "you want to get off the train before they push you off," and that after reshoots for the film officially finish in the fall, he "expects" to be done.
Fans have been speculating for months that one of the main Avengers will die in the two-part cinematic epic. When reviewing the actors' contracts that are soon to expire, including Evans', it may allude to who could possibly be in danger.
