Marvel Cinematic Universe fans said goodbye to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) back in 2019 when the Avengers: Endgame blockbuster hit the screens.
Cap chose to stay in the past to live a long and happy life with his beloved Peggy Carter, and the audience agreed that the hero deserved it after everything he did to save the world.
But last week, a rumour spread across the network that Evans was actively negotiating to return to the cinematic universe. It turned out that Anthony Mackie (Falcon) more than supported his colleague’s decision. With Endgame ending with a scene where Captain America handed his shield over to Sam Wilson, you might have thought Macy would be upset if he were not perceived as the next Cap, but this is not the case. Commenting on the rumours in an interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the actor stated:
“I heard it, saw it. And listen: Chris is my friend, so if they recruit him again, I will be very happy about that. “
Despite the disappointment fans experienced at Rogers’ departure, his emotional explanation smoothed all corners as the yearning for Peggy has been the driving force behind Cap’s adventures since his debut in Captain America: The First Avenger. Of course, if Evans returns to the cinematic universe, it is unlikely that there will be a significant role, but cameos in a film or TV series are quite possible.
