Chris Evans eyeing MCU return as Captain America
More than a year after his last appearance as Captain America in Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans is apparently considering a return to the MCU.
Deadline reports that the actor, one of the foundational stars of the Marvel Studios juggernaut, is headed toward a deal to “reprise the role in the MCU in some form,” which means we perhaps haven’t seen the last of Captain Steve Rogers after all.
Details on exactly how Evans would return and when are vague, but Deadline’s report also notes that his return would be for “at least” one project, with “the door open” for a second if things work out. It’s also unlikely this return would generate another solo Captain America film and would instead be more in line with something like what Evans’ co-star Robert Downey Jr. did in his later MCU years, making substantial supporting appearances in films like Spider-Man: Homecoming.
