He said: "I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing". That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of nearly 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry'. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming nor denying anything'.
'Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honour.
'To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories!
Much has been made of Avengers 4 potentially being Chris' last film, as his contract with Disney is thought to now be up; the Marvel Cinematic Universe is also now moving into a phase that does not include numerous original heroes including Iron Man and Hulk.
Evans' tweet led to speculation he'll be turning in his shield and parting ways with Captain America, whom he's portrayed in numerous Marvel movies since 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger"; some fans even felt the tweet was a spoiler indicating the character would be killed off. "Which I also probably can't give away", he quipped.
He added: "It might have been a line to Paul Rudd". According to ComicBook.com, the actor was asked about his last line at a panel and his response was that the line "was something really stupid".
Although he previously teased his final line of dialogue during reshoots was pretty "stupid", Evans had nothing but praise for both Marvel Studios and those involved with bringing Avengers 4 to life.
'But when you get the thing that you think you want and then you wake up and realize that you still have pockets of sadness, and that your struggle will reinvent itself, you stop chasing after those things and it is liberating, because you realize that right here, right now, is exactly all I need'. The line wasn't memorable to Evans, but the day was. "The day was more memorable than the line", he added, and them mimed using a shovel to dig himself into a hole.
Well, at least it won't be the last line fans see, when they remember Captain America.
Avengers 4 releases on May 3, 2019.
