Chris Evans denies return as Captain America

Actor Chris Evans has responded to rumors that he will return as Captain America. โ€œThis is news for me,โ€ he said in a tweet, to which he added a shrugging emoji.

Earlier in the day, Deadline wrote that the 39-year-old was about to sign a new contract for the performance of the superhero. This would involve one or two films, possibly in an ensemble film with several figures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Evans announced two years ago that he was finished with the role and that he would like to focus on other work. The immense success of the Marvel films made Evans, along with colleagues like Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth, become one of the highest paid actors on the planet.

The actor also expressed his appreciation for all gifs shared about a possible return as ‘Cap’. โ€œSome gifs are really hilarious. Good work people!โ€
