Chris Evans might come back as Captain America.

Actor Chris Evans may come back as Captain America. Deadline reports this on the basis of initiates, who tell us that the 39-year-old hunk is about to sign a new contract.

It would be one or two films. Given the course of the Marvel series, it seems small that Captain America will have another film of his own. It seems more likely that the hero will return in an ensemble film, or as a supporting role in a story of another hero from the Marvel universe.

Evans appeared in seven films between 2011 and 2019. He 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 best-paid actors on the planet.
