Reports are doing the rounds that Chris Evans, who plays Steve Rogers aka Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will don the superhero costume once again in a future project/s from the Marvel Studios.
Deadline reported insiders saying that Chris' talks with the studios is headed in that direction to return as Captain America in at least one Marvel property, with the door open for a second film. Sources add it’s unlikely to be a new Captain America installment and more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr did after Iron Man 3, appearing in such films as Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
As the news spread, many Marvel fans rejoiced on social media.
