The Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it will soon come to a close, as Avengers: Endgame is just one month away from theaters. 21 movies and ten years of filmmaking will collide in the final blockbuster in Phase Three, so the stakes are sky high. What's more, Endgame will likely mark the final bow for many of the OG Avengers, including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans. The latter has spent many years as Steve Rogers/Captain America, and therefore has a few things he'd like as a memento for his tenure in the MCU.
Appearing in seven Marvel blockbusters (in addition to a handful of cameos), Chris Evans' Captain America has been one of the most significant characters in the entirety of the shared universe. As such, he's worn a ton of different suits throughout various adventures. And the 37 year-old actor wants to take a Cap costume home. As he recently revealed:
I'm going to ask for the full suit I never asked for the full suit. Hemsworth got the full suit. I want the full suit.
While they've worked together for years, it appears that The Avengers still have some healthy rivalry. And if Chris Hemsworth got to take home a Thor suit, then Chris Evans wants to follow suit for Captain America. He spent long enough in the costume, after all.
Chris Evans' comments to THR revealed that he's already managed to take home a prop of Captain America's signature shield. The vibranium weapon is Cap's signature accessory during his onscreen appearances, and he's used it in a variety of ways in during Evans' impressive run in the MCU. But while he's managed to take home a shield, he still needs to get his hands on a full costume.
If Marvel Studios ends up coming through for Chris Evans and granting him a Captain America costume, one had to wonder which suit will be selected. There have been a ton of very different suits over the years, so will Evans get to pick? And will it be a classic Phase 1 costume, or the more gritty versions from Phase Three?
Captain America's suits very closely resembled the comics during his early appearances in Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. They were bright and colorful, and even featured his iconic little wings on his headpiece. But as the MCU began growing, Cap's suits got more tactical and armored. And when we eventually saw him in Infinity War, the suit was badly damaged from his years on the run.
The surviving heroes including Cap will be getting fancy matching suits in Avengers: Endgame, as seen in the final trailer. But his classic costume is also shown, so it should be interesting to see where The Russo Brothers take the character for his final outing.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive in theaters on April 26th. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
