Recently, in an interview with Comicbook, Chris Evans talked about his return which is focused around the Star-Spangled Avenger returning the six Infinity Stones after Avengers: Endgame.

“Seems to be something people would like to see.”

In January 2021, Deadline addressed that Chris Evans is predicted to return as Captain America in an unknown project, teasing that the actor will return as Steve Rogers. The outlet also addressed that the reported project is different from Anthony Mackie’s Captain America 4.

“In at least one Marvel property with the door open for a second film.”

Kevin Feige has also shared his thoughts on the news, telling Entertainment Weekly:

“I rarely answer no to anything anymore because things are always surprising me with what happens, but that rumor, I think, was dispelled rather quickly by the man himself.”

Meanwhile, Mackie will return as Falcon in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier on Disney+ March 19 alongside Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. Mackie said he had “no idea” about Chris Evan’s rumored return.

“I was fishing [when the report came out]. When I came back in to get some shrimp, the dude at the dock was like, ‘Hey, man! Did you see this shit?!’ I’ve been going to the same guy to get my bait for like 20 years and all of a sudden now he’s a fan. He had no idea who I was. Now he’s a fan.”

He also added:

“Marvel’s so secretive, and it’s so ridiculous about what we know and what we don’t know. I have no idea. The dude at the dock selling me shrimp knows more about what’s going on with Marvel than I do.”
