During an interview with Scarlett Johansson on Variety called Actors on Actors, one of the questions that were brought up was if Chris will ever return as Captain America one day, and here is what Chris had to say :
You never say never. I love the character. I don’t know. It’s not a hard no, but it’s not an eager yes either. There are other things that I’m working on right now. I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together.
Chris then goes on to say:
It’d be a shame to sour that. I’m very protective of it. It was such a precious time, and jumping onto the movie was a terrifying prospect to me. I said no a bunch of times, and there’s a million and one ways it could have gone wrong. It almost feels like maybe we should let this one sit.
I agree with Chris 100%. To me, Cap has a perfect ending, and for him to return would pretty much tarnish it. The only way I would accept Captain America coming back if it’s for a flashback regarding the Invaders, a scene where Sam Wilson needs some guidance on a difficult decision/task, or Secret Wars. Marvel Studios should definitely let this one sit, but a return is inevitable. I just know when Chris Evans does return, it’ll be a special moment.
