Those involved in the making of “Avengers: Infinity War” have made it quite clear that with the contracts of various cast members coming to an end, numerous characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be killed off – permanently.
Which ones, of course, is a guessing game with the likes of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor or Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man both being frequently speculated about as potentially meeting their makers. Now, if a hint from actor Chris Evans is anything to go by, it looks like Captain America has shot up on the possibility list.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Evans was asked specifically about his role in the future of the MCU to which he responded: “You want to get off the train before they push you off”. The article adds that Evans: “expects that planned reshoots in the fall will mark the end of his tenure in the familiar red, white and blue super suit.”
That doesn’t mean Cap won’t be back, but it could mean either Anthony Mackie’s Falcon or Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier take on the mantle following the loss of their friend. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens April 27th and will be followed by “Ant-Man and the Wasp” in July – that film has just released some concept art below:
