Chris Evans is hanging up his shield for good.
The Captain America actor has just wrapped shooting on Avengers 4, and in the process, said goodbye to the role he’s played for the last eight years.
Evans contract as Cap is up in 2019, and while there was always a chance he could sign a new deal, it appears his days of playing Cap are at an end. Let’s all shed a tear.
“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,” Evans tweeted.
Some of his celebrity friends weighed in on this end of an era.
The actor previously suggested he would soon depart the role. Earlier this year, Evans told The New York Times that wanted to “get off the train before they push you off.”
Avengers 4 is slated to open in May next year.
