Home / Entertainment / Viral / Chris Evan's to Retire from Captain America Role


After playing the role of Captain America for eight years, Chris Evans is retiring.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, also known as MCU, began its first filming in 2008 with the very first Iron Man. After the filming of Avengers: Infinity War, the MCU has now been rolling forward for 10 years.

Our introduction to the Captain, in Captain America: The First Avenger, was the fifth MCU movie instalment and Evans was the very first to play Steve Rogers. The scene was set in 1941 where the world is in the throes of war and Rogers, a skinny non-muscular man, wants to do his part and join America's armed forces but the military rejects him because of his small stature. Finally, Steve gets his chance when he is accepted into an experimental program that turns him into a supersoldier called Captain America.

Chris tweeted about his retirement after wrapping up his last Captain America role in Avengers 4, Marvels 22nd film.

Onscreen superheroes, as well as Marvel fans, have taken to social media to express their emotion over the end of an era.
