Appearing on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, Chris Evans revealed that he believes Captain America’s time is over. The actor, who has appeared as Steve Rogers in about a dozen films at MCU, told the late-night host that he thinks returning to the role would be too risky after ending such a high note during Avengers: Endgame.
“There are other things that I’m working on right now. I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together. “It doesn’t feel, at this time, that would be a thing.”
As he said then, Evans thinks the ending of Endgame would be a difficult hurdle to overcome.
“It’d be a shame to sour that,” he said of Steve’s ending. “I’m very protective of it. It was such a precious time, and jumping onto the movie was a terrifying prospect to me. I said no a bunch of times, and there are a million and one ways it could have gone wrong. It almost feels like maybe we should let this one sit.”
Evans can be seen as Captain America in Avengers: Endgame, now streaming on Disney+.
