In the end, the above stunt was just the tip of the iceberg for Chris Evans. He would go on to reprise his role in two sequels, as well as four Avengers films. Captain America did everything imaginable, from holding back a helicopter to wielding Mjolnir. Perhaps he needed to be humbled early on to achieve it all.

Captain America was given his happy ending in Avengers: Endgame, going back in time and growing old with Peggy. But that doesn't mean that it's last we've seen from Chris Evans in his signature role. He's currently set to voice Cap in the animated What If...? series on Disney+.

While Steve Roger's story was wrapped up with a neat bow, fans are still holding out hope that Chris Evans might once again take up the shield as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Only time will tell if these reports have any validity.

The next installment in the MCU is Black Widow on May 7th, while the franchise also continues to grow on Disney+. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your next movie experience.
