Chris Evans Won’t Be Returning As Captain America

had Twitter all in an uproar when he was apparently bidding a farewell to his major role as .

Officially wrapped on 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.

However, it IS important to note that Evans has discussed exiting the role after Avengers 4 for a while now:

Ah yes, the infamous contract. After the release of Age of Ultron, Evans is set to return to the fold three more times, in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, and in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and 2019. And then that’s it. “So halfway through!” he says, throwing up his arms in his trailer with an enormous grin. “I mean, I’m going to miss these when they’re done. I really will. This has been a lot of fun, and they’re only getting more fun. Especially because there’s a trust in that you’re going to make something good. It would really be lousy to be stuck in a contract knowing that you’re making shit. And I just don’t feel that way. It’s really a blessing that this kind of fell in my lap. Sometimes you don’t really feel deserving of it. But I’ll take it.”

I guess we’ll just have to wait until the summer of 2019 to find out the truth. Until then, catch me subtweeting Evans’ like:
