The fourth Avengers film is the last one in which Chris Evans can be seen as Captain America. The actor announced this Thursday on Twitter.
“It was an emotional day to say the least”, the actor tweeted after his last shooting day for Avengers 4 . “It was an honor to play this role for eight years, to everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera and in the audience: thanks for all the memories, I am eternally grateful.”
Many fans, but also other Hollywood stars responded to the message. “I’m not crying, I whine, there’s a difference,” Ryan Reynolds joked. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson told Evans: “What a series you have put down, you have given an iconic character a new lease of life.”
The 37-year-old actor played the soldier with superpowers for the first time in Captain America: The First Avenger from 2011. Then followed two more films around the character: The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Evans was also seen as ‘Cap’ in The Avengers and successors Age of Ultron and Infinity War. In other Marvel films he also regularly popped up with his iconic shield.
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.
