It's time to Chris Evans in honor of a classic movie star tradition: backing away from a possible movie spoiler. At the beginning of October, the actor tweeted a sincere message about the packaging. Avengers 4, emotionally saying goodbye to the franchise: "Thanks for the memories!" wrote the (a long time?) Captain America. For some, it seemed that Evans was admitting that the next film would be Steve Rogers' swan song, which eventually culminated as Cap. The tweet also triggered the melancholic hashtag "#Thanks to YouVistas de la guerra", pushing fans to cry prematurely about his career as the corpulent superhero.
But at the ACE Comic Con in Chicago over the weekend, Evans stepped back from the tweet and clarified what he was trying to say.
"I know I made a tweet that made many people think it was somehow a spoiler, and I must clarify that, regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted exactly the same, "he said, according to The Hollywood reporter. Evans said he was simply saying goodbye to this chapter of the Marvel franchise: "The last day of shooting really was a very emotional day. It was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 films, this incredible tapestry, and you feel many more emotions than I think I even thought you would feel, and I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a domino effect, but I'm not confirming or denying anything. "
So . . . Captain America may be dead and gone, but he does not say it with certainty! Evans has played the role since 2011, when he became one of the original stars who helped turn Marvel Cinematic Universe into a billion-dollar movie series. In the last couple of years, it has cooled down a bit at work, saying Variety in 2014 he wanted to retire as an actor to continue directing. In 2017, he said Don that the final Avengers The movie would close his Marvel contract. And then, in March of this year, he counted. The New York Times that he had no plans to make his way into more Marvel movies. "You want to get off the train before they push you," he said.
That's why his most recent tweet about the franchise seemed so ominous, so definite. The man has been flirting publicly with the exit door for years, and now, he can walk through. Between Avengers properties, Evans has spent the last few years introducing a variety of challenging projects into his agenda; starred From Bong Joon-ho science fiction trip Snowpiercer, He directed his first feature film, Before leaving, and he made his Broadway debut in the excellent rebirth of From Kenneth Lonergan Lobby Hero. It does not matter what he it meant by that tweet, then, it seems safe to assume that we should prepare for Captain America to rest in peace, and we look forward to whatever is found in the next Chris Evans chapter.
