End of an era

After taking us on an emotional journey with his Steve Rogers, Chris Evans is seemingly hanging up his shield for good after Avengers 4.

The 37-year-old actor said his supposed goodbyes in an heartfelt tweet where he showed his gratitude for his iconic role, and that ‘the last 8 years have been an honor.’

Evans has always hinted at leaving Marvel, as an interview with the New York Times had him quoted saying ‘You want to get off the train before they push you off.’

Fans, including fellow celebs, reacted to the news

While the news IS sad (he’s my fave Avenger after all), several Marvel characters HAVE taken up the mantle of Captain America in the comics before, including Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).

See you around Cap! Thanks for everything!
