Part of the journey is the end… but not yet for Steve Rogers! According to a recent report, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not ready to let go of the charismatic leader of the Avengers, and the corresponding paperwork is already being carried out in order to reintegrate him through one or more future installments of the franchise. Of course, it is the famous Chris Evans whom the House of Ideas would have summoned to once again assume the role of Captain America, by him incarnated within the MCU for almost ten years.
Deadline announced Thursday that Chris Evans will resume his film version of Captain America for the multi-million dollar Marvel Studios franchise, according to anonymous sources. While there is still no certainty regarding a final agreement between the actor and the company, the plan would be for Evans to intervene “in at least one Marvel property with the door open for a second film.”
However, the above would not mean a fourth installment of the Captain America saga, since it is more likely (according to the original report) that Steve Rogers appears as a secondary character in future projects and not as the owner of another solo film.
The last time we saw “Cap” inside the MCU was in Avengers: Endgame, as an old man inheriting his Vibranium shield from Sam Wilson / Falcon; A climactic flashback revealed that beloved Avenger – having traveled to the past to return the Infinity Stones – chose to stay in the ’70s with his beloved Peggy Carter.
Another temporary trip seems like a narrative possibility to include Captain America in the coming of the Marvel Universe. However, it is impossible to ignore that the multiverse is what the franchise glimpses on the horizon, so that way the return of Chris Evans could be justice, perhaps in a very different interpretation of Steve Rogers, corresponding to an alternate dimension.
Following this logic, the hypothesis has already emerged on Twitter that it will be in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness where we will witness the 39-year-old histrion as part of the cast, in the company of Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen. Do you like the idea?
The sequel to the Supreme Sorcerer (currently dragging a filming suspended by COVID-19 in England) is expected to hit theaters on March 25, 2022.

Toño Guzmán I have a very bad memory. Out of solidarity with my memories, I choose to lose myself too. Preferably in a movie theater.
