Marvel exec confirms future Captain America without Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers is possible

Fans should not be surprised to hear that Chris Evans’ return to the Marvel Universe after his current contract expires is less and less likely. Evans has even hinted at retiring from acting and now Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige gives fans a place to look and see the future.

“It’s a good question and if we look back at the comic book as our inspiration and as the well from which this all springs, then the answer is ‘no,'” Feige says of a Captain America film having to star Rogers.

That said, don’t expect a change like in the comic books.

“I’m not saying we’ll do it in the movie, but I’ve read Captain America comics that don’t have Steve Rogers in them,” he added.

Evans is not alone as Chris Hemsworth will complete his contact obligation with the Infinity War films. Collider asks: Have you guys started having those conversations about some of these actors are at the end of their deals and a lot of us fans attribute these people to these characters and can’t imagine Thor without Chris Hemsworth.

FEIGE: Sure, I mean, it’s weird to say “at the end of their deals” when in some cases they have three whole movies to go. So we don’t usually think about it until necessary. I can’t remember the last time we did it but it was like with Robert, after Avengers came out, we were dealing with his next movie so we have a long way before we have to worry about that.

Sequels, new films and characters, what does Feige foresee: “I think anything is possible. I think absolutely you’ve seen our model this year last year that we like a new adventure in the ongoing stories of existing characters and then something completely new and completely different. I think next year you will see it with Guardians. Then frankly, I almost count Homecoming and Ragnarok as two almost entirely different and brand new thing— even though there’s been other Spider-Man films and two other Thor films. They’re [both] very, very, different.”

Evans will be back for Avengers: Infinity War due in theaters on May 4, 2018 and then the all out, no holds bar throwdown with Thanos in an untitled Avengers film set for May 3, 2019.
