Chris Evans may not be done with his role as Captain America after all… or is he? Back in October Chris said his goodbye to the shield in an emotional tweet and all of us died a little inside. Chris has brought the role to life and after eight years as Cap we can’t imagine another replacing him! We have word that he may actually not be done with the franchise…
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.

Joseph Russo, who along with brother Anthony wrote and directed this year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and next year’s sequel, and directed Evans as Captain America in two previous films, told The Associated Press: “I think it was more emotional for him than us. Only because he’s not done yet. And I don’t want (to) explain what that means but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about.”
“We killed half the Marvel universe so for us it really is about, in what ways can we surprise the audience and tell a very challenging story,” Russo said.
He would confirm that at least at this point the movie, which is in post-production, is the longest Marvel film ever. “We’re about halfway through the editorial process and it’s standing about three hours right now. It’s a very complicated movie,” noted Russo. “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.”
