Chris Evans bids farewell to Captain America

To that latter point: this chart definitely seems to ignore certain realities of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that have come to light: for example, this fan is still pulling for the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, which is now on indefinite hold; and there seems to be some decision that the original Avengers solo franchises won't be continuing on in any fashion. It was an emotional day to say the least. Chris Evans announces he's hanging up his suit as Captain America after 8 years. He also thanked everyone who helped in making these memories. And with the still-untitled "Avengers 4" film set for May release, we don't have much time left with Cap.

Avengers 4 arrives in theaters on May 3, 2019.

The fourth Avengers movie will be the actor's 10th one as Cap, which seems as good a number as any to go out on. He has played the character in three "Captain America" movies and four "Avengers" films, including the upcoming "Avengers 4". Eternally grateful. - Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 4, 2018 Since then, the tweet received more than 1.1 million likes and close to 300,000 retweets.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War are both among the best films Marvel has put since this whole superhero revival started with Iron Man in 2008. Another possibility is that Steve Rogers will finally retire from the team, like Batman did in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. He was dead to everyone else.

While Dark Avengers may or may not happen, we are starting to get a clearer picture of what the MCU will look like after the conclusion of the events that began in Avengers: Infinity War. But we all hope Thanos will be defeated, and his actions will be undone.

It has been said that the Marvel Studios Phase 4 plans are going cosmic in a big way, and I did previously tease Marvel's true end game for Avengers 4 is what comes next, so perhaps Avengers: Annihilation fits? And now, the above missive leaves little doubt that he's done saving the world alongside Robert Downey Jr.
