Chris Evans: Captain America is over
Captain America is history for Chris Evans (37). The actor said he completed the shooting of Avengers 4, ending his eight-year career as Captain America.
"It was an emotional day, to say the least," Evans wrote on Twitter. "Playing this role for the past eight years has been an honor, to everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera and in the audience, thanks for the memories, I'm eternally grateful."
New role is waiting
The 37-year-old Hollywood star has previously stated that he has no plans to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after shooting "Avengers 4". "They want to get off the train before they kick you out," he told The New York Times in March.
Evans made his debut as Steve Rogers in "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011). What happens to the character in "Avengers 4" is not yet known. The film will be released in the spring of 2019. Meanwhile, Evans is said to have taken a lead role in Apple's upcoming drama series Defending Jacob. In addition, "Deadline" reports that he will be starring Daniel Craig (50) in Rian Johnson's (44) new movie "Knives Out".
