Either he’s playing coy, or reports of his return were a bit premature.

Original: Spoiler Alert for those few who have not seen Avengers: Endgame, however it seemed that the sun had actually set for Chris Evans‘ Steve Rogers at the end of the film. Chris is in talks to “repeat the function in the MCU in some type,” according to a report from Deadline Our sister publication claims its experts say Chris “may return as Steve Rogers aka Captain America in at least one Marvel property with the door open for a 2nd movie.” Chris’s return would unlikely be a 3rd Captain America movie, and, per Due date, “more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Guy 3, appearing in movies like Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.“
This report made some Marvel fans lose their minds. “YES YES PLSS I SOBBED TO MUCH AT THE END OF ENDGAME JUST BC CHRIS EVANS WASNT GON NA RETURN AND NOW HE IS OMGGGGGGG IM SO HAPPY YESSS.” “CHRIS EVANS REPEATS HIS ROLE AS CAPTAIN AMERICA THATS IT THATS THE F-CKING TWEET.” “I’m hearing Chris Evans remains in talks to repeat his role as Cap ?! YES PLEASE!” “dude guy dude chris evans may reprise his function as captain america … i’m!!!!!!!”

Many believed that Endgame was the end of Chris’s period as Captain America. After beating Thanos, Chris’s chronologically-displaced Steve Rogers was provided a second chance to return to his own time and grow old with Peggy Carter Steve passed the guard and title to Sam “The Falcon Wilson ( Anthony Mackie). Robert Downey Jr. has actually had a life after Endgame, appearing in Spider-Man: Far From House ( in a piece of “archival footage”) regardless of his character perishing at the end of the last Avengers film.

Chris initially put on the red, white, and blue in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger “There was no reason that after 10 years of making motion pictures, I was freaking out the method I was,” he told Men’s Journal ahead of Endgame’s release.
When provided the gig– nine movies, no audition essential– he turned it down. He ultimately talked it down to a six-film offer (but still did 9 motion pictures.) “I got the job in a weird method from stating no,” he stated. “Much like other things in life, when you state no, they just pursue you.”
