Captain America has been played by actor Chris Evans in the MCU for over 8 years now, so naturally, fans have come to love the character. If you’re one of those fans, you’re going to find the actor’s latest social media post very sad, as he’s just said goodbye to Cap now that he’s officially wrapped filming for Avengers 4.
Fans naturally reacted the way you’d expect them to:
While some may be surprised, Evans has actually been hinting at this for a while now. Back in March, he revealed his reasoning for leaving the role when talking about Marvel:
“You want to get off the train before they push you off.”
In the same month, he also revealed what he will miss most about playing the character:
“[I’ll miss] everything [about Captain America]. I mean, it’s not just the character, it’s the people — the experience, such good movies, such wonderful memories. I’ll miss a lot.”
I’m sure he’s not the only one who will miss it a lot. Here’s hoping the character gets the happy ending he deserves.
Avengers 4 hits theaters everywhere next May.
