Does Chris Evans' end of the contract with Marvel signify the death of Captain America is approaching? Well, according to the comic book story, Captain America certainly dies after the Avengers Civil War.
But the MCU bosses and Civil War writer Stephen McFeely, have no intention to bring a premature end to the popular Captain America character.
When asked if ever Captain America is ever going to die in the context of the movie, Stephen McFeely said "No".
"It also makes him too definitely a martyr and makes it feel like he was right. And we wanted neither side to be right or wrong. We wanted to end it kind of queasy. Both opinions are still standing at the end of the movie." Said Stephen McFeely.
Captain America Civil War director Anthony Russo also explains that though they are thinking about bringing a change in the character, they are certainly not thinking of striking the character off.
"We were saying to ourselves, the genre - and perhaps the MCU - has gotten to a point where the audience are sensing the patterns in the genre. Joe and I have always been about: how do we subvert genre?" Said Anthony Russo.
However, Russo also hinted at the fact that Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans may not return as Captain America. "Dropping the shield is a rejection of the Captain America identity and a choice to embrace the Steve Rogers identity."
