Director Joe Russo says Chris Evans’ role as Captain America doesn’t end after the second instalment, in an interview with Associated Press.
Unfinished business with Captain America
Without revealing any spoilers, Joe Russo described Chris Evans’ role as Captain America, saying “he’s not done yet.” He said, “I think it was more emotional for him than us only because, you know, he’s not done yet, so…”. “And I won’t explain what that means, but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about,” he added.
Chris Evans hinted his Cap days are over
Last October, the 37-year-old Hollywood star dropped a hint about retiring from the role via Twitter, after wrapping up shooting for the sequel to ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ He said “Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day, to say the least. Playing this role over the last eight years has been an honour. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
Avengers 4 releasing on 3rd May 2019
Russo revealed the sequel is under post-production. It’s likely to be the longest film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Russo said “We’re about halfway through the editorial process and it’s standing about three hours right now. It’s a very complicated movie. It has a lot of characters in it and you know we are putting in the work, so we’ll see where it ends up, but it definitely has a lot of story in it.
