Chris Evans has officially wrapped all his filming on the fourth “Avengers” film and posted a message to fans and colleagues which seems to reinforce the talk that this will be his final outing as Steve Rogers/Captain America.
Deadline adds that Evans is already moving on and has signed on to co-star in Rian Johnson’s upcoming film “Knives Out” alongside Daniel Craig. That project is a modern-day whodunnit murder mystery with an Agatha Christie style. Of his wrap on the next “Avengers,” Evans says:
“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.”
Reshoots started last month for the film to capture new footage and finalise the ending. “Avengers 4,” which has yet to reveal its true title, stars Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olson, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd, Jon Favreau, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Evangeline Lilly and Josh Brolin. It is set to hit theaters on May 3rd 2019.
