'Avengers 4' will 'wrap everything up' says Chris Evans

There's been grapevine rumblings that Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark aka Iron Man, and Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, may be at the end of their contracts as well after Infinity War.

"There's something refreshing about that intimate exchange with the other people involved in a smaller film", Evans tells The Wrap in a new interview.

Sure, he gets to be a movie star, and no one's saying we should feel bad for him about that.

Though Evans has expressed interest over the past six years in moving on from Cap and the Avengers team to focus on smaller projects and, even, directing gigs, it seems he's willing to be pulled back in one more time for the sake of storytelling. "That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing".

In the land of Hollywood, signing onto a franchise like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is an out-of-the-norm moment.

Yet that didn't stop Evans from taking on the iconic role beyond the films he was contractually obligated to star in. Both films were met with mixed reviews and had lackluster performances at the box office. Recent set photos suggest that we'll see at least the first three in the film, and it looks like the whole group may be brought to the big screen now. Will Part 2 be the actor's last Marvel movie?

Another outside-the-box possibility would allow Marvel Studios to recast the role of Captain America. As such, it isn't too much of a surprise when Evans revealed that the cast and crew usually only get "through two pages per day" on a film like Captain America. This is several movies later than what we all expected anyway, right? Chris Evans enjoys acting in films such as Gifted.

He said, "Because it made sense". In fact, Evans has done well not to have fallen victim to typecasting.

It was earlier speculated that "Avengers: Infinity War" would feature the death of Captain America.

Chris Evans says he could have walked away from playing Captain America at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and that he was convinced to come back for Avengers 4, to satisfyingly tie up the MCU's existing story arcs. Everyone can guess the two options if this were to occur: either Captain America dies in the final battle against the Mad Titan Thanos, or Steve Rogers heads off into retirement and hands the red-white-and-blue shield and suit over to the Winter Soldier or Falcon.
