Marvel is reportedly trying to convince Chris Evans to bring Captain America back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Chris Evans and Marvel reportedly had early talks to bring Captain America back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The report came via We Got This Covered. According to the website, a reliable source of theirs said that the early talks involve cameo roles for Chris Evans in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s second season.
The final moments of Avengers: Endgame showed us Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) retiring as Captain America at over 100 years old. He passed on his iconic shield to Falcon slash Sam Wilson, whose journey we will follow on the first season of Disney Plus’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
According to the same source, the current plan is to show Sam struggling as Captain America in the second season. With no one else to guide him, he turns to Chris Evans for advice.
Now, this might be a win-win situation. Fans get to see Chris Evans while the emotional scenes on the Avengers: Endgame remains relevant. It just makes sense, and it is a logical way to do it!
However, nothing is official yet, and based on past interviews, Marvel needs to come up with valuable reasons if they want to convince Chris Evans to return.
In a 2019 interview with IGN Southeast Asia, Chris Evans already expressed his thoughts about returning the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When asked if he wants to come back, the 38-year-old actor answered, “It’s not a hard no, but it’s not an eager yes either,”
The actor is clear that he needs a good reason to return.
"I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together.” Evans added in the same interview.
Indeed that was a beautiful ending, and it's commendable how Chris Evans pays more respect to the story than the money. Would being a mentor be interesting enough for him?
We'll have to wait and see if Marvel manages to persuade Chris Evans.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier starring Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) is set to release in August 2020 on the Disney plus channel.
How about you? Do you think Chris Evans should return to Marvel Cinematic Universe through The Falcon and the Winter Soldier? Would it be better if we just leave everything as it is in the Avengers: Endgame?
