Several days ago, Avengers 4 actor Chris Evans sent out a tweet that shook the core of fanboy nation…kinda. If you’ll recall, the actor celebrated his wrap on the film after eight or so years of playing the character Captain America over the course of several films, bringing a bittersweet end to an amazing chapter in filmmaking.
However, many outlets (like ours), couldn’t help but wonder what exactly his tweet meant. In it, he highlighted the emotions he was feeling and thanked many people both in front of and behind the camera. The conclusion some came to was simple: Evans confirmed that Captain America would be kicking the bucket by the end of the film. I, of course, threw out that possibility but also pointed out that his tweet could very well just be referring to the current phase in MCU history.

The actor since clarified to THR at ACE Comic Con that it was the latter explanation:
“That last day of filming really was a very emotional day. It was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies — this unbelievable tapestry — and you feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel, and I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect, but I am neither confirming nor denying anything.”
So we have a very real case of Schrodinger’s Cap. At this point, the Cap is both alive and dead within the box that is Avengers 4, and we’ll just have to wait and see how things ultimately play out.
Do you think Cap is on his last legs? If not, who else do you think will meet their maker by the end of the film? Sound off down below!
