Steve Rogers been the cornerstone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since his first movie in 2011’s The First Avenger. The Voice of the voiceless and the righteous man have been nicknames associated with Steve for being exactly that during the movies. Although he isn’t perfect, Captain America truly stands up for what is right in the movies. Anyone doubting that should re-watch Civil War, a movie essentially about Captain America distrusting the government and standing up for his friend when the weight of the world was against him.
It’s been well-known and speculated that Chris Evan’s contract is a trending topic over at the House of Ideas these days. This, combined with Sebastian Stan’s massive contract with Marvel, has led many to believe that Steve Rogers will suffer his demise sooner than later with Bucky Barnes taking his place. Considering Thanos is not one to by trifled with, Captain America has been nominated as the one most likely to perish during the Infinity War. That might not be the case as of late according to these comments from Evans himself:
“It’s really not up to me. My contract is up. I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘No more.’ I think Hugh Jackman has made 47 Wolverine movies, and they somehow keep getting better. It’s a character I love, and it’s a factory that really knows what they’re doing. The system is sound, over there. They make great movies. If they weren’t kicking out quality, I’d have a different opinion. But, everything Marvel does seems to be cinema gold. And like I said, I love the character. The only reason it would end is ‘cause my contract is up. After Avengers 4, my contract is done. Talk to Marvel. If we engage further, I’d be open to it. I love the character. It’s almost like high school. You certainly always look to senior year, and then, all of a sudden, senior year happens and you’re like, “I don’t know if I’m ready to go.” It’s tough thinking about not playing the guy.”
A similar situation happened when Robert Downey Jr’s contract ended after Iron Man 3 and many thought he’d also suffer the same fate at the conclusion of that movie. He went on to re-sign for a few more movies and will be showing up in the next 2 Avengers movies, plus Spider-Man’s solo debut this summer.
Here’s to hoping Chris Evans extends his contract with Marvel and continues being the First Avenger for years to come.
The Drop will provide more updates as it receives them.
