Actor Chris Evans has at numerous times said the untitled Avengers 4 film would be his final appearance as Captain America. However, rumor is this might not be completely true.
Joseph Russo, who along with brother Anthony wrote and directed this year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and next year’s sequel, and directed Evans as Captain America in two previous films, told The Associated Press: “I think it was more emotional for him than us. Only because he’s not done yet. And I don’t want (to) explain what that means but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about.”
Per USA Today:
As expected, he only teased details of the forthcoming film, saying audiences can expect the unexpected from the duo that left Marvel fans gasping earlier this year in a cliffhanger that saw several beloved Avengers disintegrate into oblivion.
“We killed half the Marvel universe so for us it really is about, in what ways can we surprise the audience and tell a very challenging story,” Russo said.
He would confirm that at least at this point the movie, which is in post-production, is the longest Marvel film ever.
“We’re about halfway through the editorial process and it’s standing about three hours right now. It’s a very complicated movie,” noted Russo. “It has a lot of characters in it and you know we are putting in the work, so we’ll see where it ends up, but it definitely has a lot of story in it.”
“Avengers 4” is scheduled for release May 3, 2019.
