Chris Evans has officially bid goodbye to Captain America, a character he has played for nearly a decade, The actor made the announcement on Twitter after he wrapped up the shoot of Avengers 4, which will feature him one last time as Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America.
Evans first stepped into the shoes of Captain America in 2011 in Captain America: The First Avenger. This was followed by The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
It introduced a whole new audience to Steve Rogers, a small, scrawny but honorable man who more than anything wants to join the US Army to fight the Nazis during World War II.
He’s given an injection of serum that turns him into a super soldier: Captain America.
The rest is (fictional) history. As Cap, Chris has fought Nazis, aliens, evil robots and even his own best friend.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.

I’m not crying. I’m weeping. There’s a difference.
