Now, Chris Evans has taken to his official Twitter account to announce that he has wrapped on Avengers 4 and his message certainly sounds as though he's bidding farewell to the role, which has fans anxious that the rematch between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Thanos will conclude with Captain America's death. Evans first played Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.
He continued: "Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. It was an emotional day to say the least", Evans wrote.

Sure, Evans could simply be saying a heartfelt thank you to everyone on set, but we doubt it.
The news of Evans hanging up his shield isn't shocking, as he voiced in an interview with The New York Times back in March that he would likely not be renewing his contract with Marvel Studios after Avengers 4.
