While we're still lucky to get to see Chris Evans as Captain America on the big screen one more time, the actor has officially retired from playing this iconic character. It was a sad day for all of us when he tweeted an emotional tribute to Cap.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 4, 2018
Now, Chris has also opened up about what his last day on set was like, so yeah, it's final, he really will be gone after 'Avengers 4'.
Talking about his last day on set, he said, “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.”
He has played this amazing character for years but turns out, his final scene as Cap was nothing special. It was a reshoot, some minor scene that needed fixing. That's a little disappointing but it's okay; I'm sure he has so many more memories playing the character that will stay with him always.
He even went on to say his last line was not that proud of a moment. He said, “It was something really stupid, it was something really dumb. Which I also probably can't give away. Well, you know, it was reshoots, so you're doing these little picks and pops, and it's just little things that they need. It might have been a line to Paul Rudd. He wasn't there, but it was a stupid line. The line wasn't memorable to me [laughs]. The day was more memorable than the line.”
Well, it still sounds exciting to me! We should all try to figure out which line it was when the movie is finally out next year.
Also, I'm just going to leave this here.

Coming back to Chris' tweet, he promised everyone he did not, in any way, give away any spoilers. Yes people, he's not Mark Ruffalo or Tom Holland, he's a part of the small group of actors who get the entire script beforehand.
Let's all begin preparing for Captain America making his last appearance in MCU now.
Goodbye Cap, we'll miss you!
