Chris Evans to Return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as CAPTAIN AMERICA

Two words: The Multiverse. 

This is opening up in a big way for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Marvel Studios plots the course to open up endless possibilities. Starting with the Disney+ series WANDAVISION, then continuing their path into the Multiverse with DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS as well as with the next untiled SPIDER-MAN movie, where Doctor Strange will appear.

So it makes perfect sense when Deadline is reporting how actor Chris Evans is ready to reprise his role as Captain America even though fans saw Steve Rogers go into retirement after the events of AVENGERS: ENDGAME.

Deadline writes:

"In a move that is sure to rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sources tell Deadline that Chris Evans is cleaning the dust off his Captain America attire as he expected reprise the role in the MCU in some form. Still vague if deal as completely closed but insiders say its headed in that direction for Evans to return as Steve Rogers aka Captain America in at least one Marvel property with the door open for a second film. Sources add it’s unlikely to be a new Captain America installment and more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Man 3, appearing in films like Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming... 

"Evans had been very public that he would be hanging up the shield after Avengers: Endgame with Marvel going as far as having the character hand the shield to Anthony Mackie’s character at the end of the film in a passing of the torch type of moment. Things had changed in recent months as the idea was floated of Evans returning to the MCU as Rogers to see if there was any interest and as the weeks went by, Evans became more game to the idea with the two sides coming to agreement at the top of the year."

As I said at the top of this post, the Multiverse brings endless possibilities to the MCU and Evans wants to be a part of that.
