Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) 4 de octubre de 2018
With this emotional farewell, Chris Evans has shaken the press and fans of the Marvel universe. In March of this year, the actor had already given clues to this matter in an interview with The New York Times, but so far, the sad news is confirmed.
Other Captain America
The superhero was invented in the comics of the 1940s and was conceived as a patriotic super soldier who fought in World War II. It was even a great influence for young people who enlisted in the army in search of the adventures of the hero of the comics.
His first appearance was in 1941 in the comic series Captain America Comics # 1. After the war, the hero lost some popularity, but in the 1960s, perhaps due to the emergence of another war, that of Vietnam, the patriotic super hero returned to be fashionable.
In addition to seeing it drawn in the pages of comics, in 1944 Captain America appeared in his own film series that featured 15 chapters. This was the first appearance of a comic book superhero in other media besides print.
Then in 1966, this beloved character made a second appearance, this time on the small screen, in the animated series The Marvel Superheroes, where he shared protagonism with other heroes such as Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk. From then on, Captain America did not abandon the screens anymore.
The trajectory of Chris Evans
The actor was called 8 years ago to play the iconic American superhero. Since 2010, Evans has worked on the interpretation of this character. From this moment on, Chris Evans became the only live action actor to have played Captain America, as he is the only one who has played this role in a real-life, non-animated film. This actor is officially the human face that we have given to Captain America.
In these 8 years, the actor has already participated in 9 productions playing the character that has given him fame. If you want to follow the trajectory of the actor like Captain America, these are the movies you should see:

What will come for Captain America?
For now, his colleague Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man, his colleague and rival in the films that share their characters, has made a heartfelt tribute and has dismissed him in a very emotional way. The actors had cultivated a friendship in all these years of filming and were also known for making jokes on Twitter. This was also the way in which Robert Downey Jr. has says goodbye to his friend, warning that "we all know who the real boss is":
The departure of Chris Evans as Captain America has raised many doubts about the future of the character. There are those who suspect that he will die in Avengers 4. We will have to wait for the premiere of the film, which has not yet an official name. It is scheduled to be released to the public in May of next year. This film will complete the 10 productions in which Chris Evans was Captain America and with it we will say goodbye to Evans, we still do not know if the character.
