With Avengers 4 having officially wrapped on October 12th the reality of a Chris Evans-less MCU is becoming more apparent (especially since the actor previously indicated he planned to retire from the role following the movie). But did Chris Evans actually give away the ending to Steve Rogers’ story on twitter?
The answer to that question is yes and no. And he definitely didn’t mean to let anything slip even if he did.
The actor says regardless of the film’s ending, he would have shared the same message that led people to believe his character dies.
Speaking to fans during the Q&A panel at Chicago’s ACE Comic Con this past weekend Evans said, “I should clarify that, I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler, and I should clarify that, regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would’ve tweeted the exact same thing.”
“That last day of filming really was a very emotional day,” he explained. “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.”
When asked about his final day of filming Evans told the audience that his last line as Captain America wasn’t all that meaningful.
“It was something really stupid, it was something really dumb. Which I also probably can’t give away,” he said.
The actor went on to explain that his last line on set wasn’t Cap’s last line in the movie, as scenes are often filmed out of order.
“Well, you know, it was reshoots, so you’re doing these little picks and pops, and it’s just little things that they need,” Chris Evans explained. “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.”
