Although Chris Evans has recently finished additional photography for the upcoming Avengers 4, it turns out this does not mark the end of his involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even though he has spoken about his final days of shooting for the movie, co-director Joe Russo has revealed that his time with the MCU is not complete. In an interview with Associated Press, Russo explains that he is “not done yet” with playing the character in addition to providing more details about the film itself.
The most noteworthy aspect of Russo’s statement about Evans is that it is deliberately vague in regards to how Evans will be involved with the future of the MCU. It is likely that Evans has renewed his contract with Marvel, implying that Captain America will survive the events of Avengers 4. This is not the only possibility since there is also a chance that the involvement will consist of another set of additional reshoots for the film. If this turns out to be true, that will provide evidence to the film’s somewhat unconventional shooting schedule.
Fans will be delighted to know that the explanation will not be kept secret forever. In fact, Russo boasts that “audiences will soon find out what [he is] talking about” by the time Avengers 4 hits its scheduled May 2019 release. As such, it will not be long before fans find out what Russo’s statement truly suggests.
