Back in October of this year, Chris Evans tweeted something that made every single Captain America fan stop what they were doing. Even people who may not be the biggest fans of Cap couldn’t help but turn their heads at the tweet that felt like an unofficial resignation.
Between thanking everyone for the memories and talking about the role in the past tense, this tweet felt final. Almost like a goodbye. But according the directors of the untitled fourth Avengers film, it might not be what we think.
In a recent interview, Joe Russo said this about the tweet.
“I think it was more emotional for him than us. Only because he’s not done yet. And I don’t want explain what that means but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about.”
While this is relieving to hear, it’s also a little worrying. The mystery behind this comment suggests that something big is definitely happening, and while it may not be the death of Steve Rogers, SOMETHING is unquestionably coming. But that isn’t necessarily a surprise. Russo describes the film as “complicated” and if it’s going to be bigger than Infinity War, it’ll have to bring out the big guns (cough cough, Captain Marvel, cough cough). We don’t know what’s coming, but we’re as excited as we are scared.
