Chris Evans Wasn’t Originally Supposed to Play an Old Man in ‘Endgame’

In a recent interview with The Jess Cagle Show, Anthony Mackie said that Chris Evans was originally not supposed to play an old man Steve Rogers in Avengers: Endgame.

Here’s the comment from Mackie:

Well, it’s funny they actually wanted to cast an old dude to play Chris Evans. So they brought in like three actors. They’re like, none of these, like this, isn’t how Chris will look when he’s old. Like, he’s gonna look like George Clooney. He’s going to be 95 and still like handsome, you know? So they, they brought in a makeup team and prosthetics and makeup and made them into an old man. And how good of an actor Chris is it actually worked like he, he pulled it off with his voice and everything. He did a great job.

Also in the interview, Mackie talks about Falcon and the Winter Soldier:

The show, the idea of the show is basically, you know, at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Cap decided he was going into retirement and he asked me if I would take up the shield, but at no point in time, did I agree to or say that I would be Captain America. So the show walks the line of who is going to take up the shield and who’s going to be Captain America if Steve isn’t coming back.

That was some fun info. Can you imagine if old man Steve was played by a different actor? It’s hard to even think of anyone else to play an old Chris Evans. Also, it never came to mind that Sam didn’t accept the mantle of Captain America. I truly thought Sam agreed he was going to be next in line right at that moment, so I guess we’ll see at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
