'Phase 4 is a failure': Fans divided as Chris Evans opens up about potential Marvel comeback
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: There have been persistent rumors in the air that point toward Chris Evans' Captain American aka Steve Rogers making a comeback, but the actor hasn't shown enthusiasm about picking up the shield again. Chris Evans visited Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo earlier and fans asked the burning question about his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The 'The Gray Man' star revealed that, although he thinks that there are many "stories to tell" about Steve Rogers, he is clearly still unsure about revisiting the character after bringing Steve's story to such a satisfying and sorrowful close in 'Avengers: Endgame.'
With Robert Downey Jr not returning to the franchise anymore, and Chris Evans thinking about never returning as Steve Rogers seems like two of our favorite superheroes have already put in the papers and are done and dusted with the superhero portrayal.

'I was a part of something that was so special'
Chris Evans shared a brief explanation of his reasons behind not reprising the role of Captain America. It seems valid as he explained that playing a Marvel superhero changed his life and got him to experience some beautiful memories and shared, "It's tough, because look, I love that role deeply," he said. "He means so much to me, and I really do think there's more Steve Rogers stories tell, sure. But at the same time, I'm very, very precious with it. I'd become, you know, it's like this little shiny thing that I have that I love so much, and I just don't want to mess up in any way, and I was a part of something that was so special for the period of time and in a way, it really landed so well. As much as I'm connected to that role and love telling those stories and working with those people. It doesn't quite feel right right now," Evans said according to The Wrap.
Chris Evans is seen exploring new roles and new characters. He’s starring opposite Ana de Armas once more in the Apple TV+ action rom-com film 'Ghosted' this month, and later this year will appear in the Prime Video Christmas movie 'Red One' opposite Dwayne Johnson.
