Right now the production of the as-yet untitled 'Avengers 4' has more security than certain politicians. If a leak comes from the set, it's either intentionally let out by the directing Russo brothers, or is secreted away like a threat to homeland security. But apparently nobody told that to star Chris Evans, because he doesn't seem to care if he unintentionally shares huge secrets.
Just this morning, Evans tweeted out: "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." To just about anyone reading it, this tweet sounds like a blatant announcement that Evans is done with his current highest-paying gig.
Evans has played the character of Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011. His solo standalone films are often credited as the best of the franchise, and Evans in particular has been hailed as one of the best casting choices in the series. Despite this, Evans has been less than subtle about his desire to leave the role for more serious ones.
And now, it looks like 'Avengers 4' will give him the way out he's been looking for, likely by killing off good ol' Cap. After the mass murder that took place at the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War,' it's become apparent that no character is too big to kill off, and Evans may even have suggested to the Russo brothers that he doesn't intend to renew his contract with Disney.
Either way, thanks for letting us know beforehand, Chris, and thanks for the memories.
