And if he does, what will become of Captain America?
Unlike some of the other actors working with Marvel, whose contracts have been renegotiated and extended, Chris Evans is only contracted for one more movie. That means after Civil War 2, he's no longer obligated to appear as Captain America. Via ET Online:
“It’s almost terrifying to think about these being done,” says Evans. “It always feels so good to kind of wrap and just say, ‘Alright, one more down.’ But it's also kind of like high school in a sense. You keep looking to when you're going to be done, and we're almost done now, and you're not quite ready for it to be over.”
And in the comics, Captain America dies at the end of Civil War.
Do you think Marvel will take it that far?
After all, they're owned by Disney. Do we think that the notoriously kid-friendly behemoth would allow millions of young fans to be traumatized by the death of their favorite hero? Do you think another actor will take up the mantle instead? (There's precedent for it in the comics: both Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson have wielded the famous vibranium shield in the past).
Chris Evans has done an amazing job bringing the character to life.
If he does decide to part ways, I'll be sorry to see him go (let's face it, I'd be bawling for days), but at the same time I think it's really awesome that we've all grown so attached to his portrayal of the character. What do you think?
