After ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ Marvel seems to have proceeded with its Phase 4 projects and unveiled a few new superheroes. However, MCU fans are still waiting for Chris Evans to reprise his role as Captain America on the big screen. Regardless of the fact that Anthony Mackie’s role as Sam Wilson was introduced as the new Captain America in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,’ rumors of Evans coming back to the MCU have been circulating for quite some time. Our original captain, on the other hand, has weighed in on Sam Wilson’s portrayal as Captain America. The details are as follows:
How Sam Wilson became Captain America:
Since his debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the Falcon, Sam has been a crucial recurring character in the MCU. Unfortunately, his narrative was always subordinate to Steve Rogers’, and when Steve got his big exit as Captain America in Avengers: Endgame, the path was unlocked for someone else to fill his shoes. Steve passed the shield to Sam in the last seconds of Endgame, but it wasn’t a simple exchange. Sam spends the entire six-episode span of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier debating what it entails to wield the Captain America shield. Everything comes to a climax in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s last episode when Sam finally accepts the position of Captain America.
What Chris Evans said about Sam Wilson’s Captain America:
Now, Sam Wilson, played by Anthony Mackie, is sporting the stars and stripes, and Chris Evans is eager to see more narratives with his replacement. In an interview with Yahoo!, the Marvel veteran claims that Mackie is the ideal choice for the project. “There’s no one better to do it. I mean, he honest does it justice,” Evans told the outlet. “I’m so proud of him. I can’t wait to see what they do in the future with it. But if there’s any tear shed [about the role], it’s just for the sweet memories I had”.
Will Evans ever come back as Captain America?
During the promotions of his forthcoming animated film Lightyear, the 40-year-old actor was asked about the rumors that have been going viral on social media. And, much to everyone’s delight, Evans said he would be interested in returning to the beloved Marvel role. Talking to Comicbook, he said, “I don’t want to disappoint anybody but it’s tough to. It was such a good run and I’m so happy with it. It’s so precious to me. It would have to be perfect. It just would be scary to rattle something that is, again, so, so, dear to me. That role means so much to me. So, to revisit it would be a tall order”.
Marvel Studios has yet to announce an official release date for Captain America 4. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available to watch on Disney+.
