Steve Rogers may have permanently exited in Avengers: Endgame, but there’s no reason that Chris Evans can never return to the MCU.
We know that Chris Evans’ Marvel deal is over and he cannot do it further with MCU. Because of this, a lot of people expected Cap to be killed in Avengers: The Endgame, but he got a much happier, more unexpected ending (mostly because everyone expected him to die).
The Russo brothers have hinted that Evans is “not done yet” with the character of Steve Rogers. He may not play as important a role as he did in the past, but he could easily return.
Here are five ways Chris Evans can still play Steve Rogers in another MCU movie!
5) A Post-Credits Tease
Who says Steve Rogers should be cast in the entire movie? Fans would get real crazy with a tease after the credits. That makes it worth the wait through the entire end credit sequence. Also, it might have nothing to do with the Cap.
A scene where Sam Wilson suggests our superheroes to approach new superhuman. “They were recommended to me by someone I trust,” he would say, and then the old Steve Rogers can emerge from the shadows with a familiar smile.
4) The Adventures Of Peggy And Steve
Presumably, the timeline that led to Thanos’ defeat and the irreparable damage to the survival of humanity, Peggy was trying to hide Steve entire life from the government. Except for the last eight years, he is thought to have died throughout his entire marriage.
This was probably no problem for Peggy, who specializes in espionage, but it can make an interesting movie. They have spent their years together to expose government conspiracies and stop plotting against political figures. The adventures of Peggy and Steve undoubtedly would make an excellent movie.
3) A Vietnam Flashback Movie
At the end of the Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers goes from the prime of his life to his Clint Eastwoodian twilight years. But who says that in some cases at that time he did not implement his superpowers again. There can be a whole MCU movie that tells the story of old Steve encountering Sam or Bucky (or both) about the time Captain America took up the shield in the late ’60s and’ 70s to fight in Vietnam.
It could be the Super Power Apocalypse Now, combining Vibranium-fueled action with the Creedence Clearwater Revival sounds. The plot doesn’t have to be too political, as it may follow Steve’s first blood Part II-Esque religious war to free some American prisoners of war. Peggy can get in on the action, too.
2) Replacing Stan Lee As Cameo Guy
Now that Stan Lee has passed away sadly and no longer will he be able to guest appearances in the MCU films, perhaps he can pass the torch to senior Steve Rogers. It requires Chris Evans to spend three times a year in the make-up chair for the old Steve Rogers instant guest role, and that gives the actor plenty of time to work on other projects as well.
He could be seen guiding all the superheroes. He doesn’t join the fight, but he always gives him words of wisdom as he did with his Avengers pep talks. Without Stan Lee’s guest appearances, it would feel like something is missing from these films. Replacing his appearances with Steve Rogers’ is a great way to say they live through their superpower creations.
1) A Deathbed Scene
Since Steve Rogers left Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger and woke up in 2011, we have seen various scenes in the sequel where she was an old woman. Steve was by her side when she was executed, and he was a pallbearer at her funeral.
This can be echoed in a future film, as Sam, Bucky, Banner, Thor, and everyone who has had emotional contact with Cap over the years appear at his deathbed to say goodbye and then carry his coffin to his funeral. It may be a little closer to Peggy’s arc, but the way it plays out is entirely different.
