Actor Chris Evans decided to respond to rumors of his possible return to the role of Captain America.
Chris Evans has responded to rumors that he is in talks to reprise his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Yesterday (January 14) it was reported that a deal is in the works, which would see Evans return as Steve Rogers / Captain America in a new Marvel project.
Marvel did not provide a comment on what the new project might look like, although signs were pointing to Captain America making smaller appearances in other characters’ films rather than another standalone film.
However, Evans has apparently debunked the reports, responding to speculation in a Twitter post. “News to me,” he wrote, accompanying his tweet with a shrugging emoji.
Many fans took to social media to share their disappointment at his response. “This is not a game, I need Steve Rogers back,” wrote one fan. Another said, “Put on the suit.”
There were those who did not believe Chris Evans, claiming that he was being shy about the situation. “Sure, Cap… he’s never seen denial like this before. But thanks for keeping it a surprise, “tweeted a fan.
Another wrote: “He’s being shy … This should have been obvious, but I guess not for everyone.”

Some agreed that it was time for him to hang the shield on him and pass the duties on to Anthony Mackie’s character, Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon). “No f, Captain America has a name and it’s Anthony Mackie :),” wrote another netizen.
In another part of the responses, Halloween actress Jamie Lee Curtis asked Evans if she could play her mother in all the movies she makes of her. Evans replied, “He goes on x contracts.”
