I guess it was only a matter of time for Chris Evans to return as Captain America, but I didn’t know it was going to be this soon. Deadline has reported that Chris Evans in talks to reprise his role as Cap in the MCU.
Here’s what Deadline said:
It’s still vague whether the deal is closed, but insiders say it’s headed in that direction for Evans to return as Steve Rogers aka Captain America in at least one Marvel property, with the door open for a second film. Sources add it’s unlikely to be a new Captain America installment and more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Man 3, appearing in such films as Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Honestly, I’m not surprised. Chris Evans did say in an interview a while back that if he returns to the character it has to make sense and not for nothing, and I guess the story is good. Chris Evans was quick to shut down the news on Twitter today.
Here’s what he tweeted:
Even though Chis Evans shut down the rumors, it doesn’t mean it isn’t true. Plus, it’s not the first time an actor from the MCU has to deny rumors, hell even Jamie Foxx had to backtrack on his return as Electro in Homecoming 3. Regardless, I’m excited about the news, and I’m curious when he’ll appear.
