The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is entering phase 5 with the release of Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania, but fans are already excited for the next big project, Captain America: New World Order. While Anthony Mackie’s debut as the new Captain America was expected in the film, a new rumor suggests that Chris Evans might also be returning as Steve Rogers.
In Avengers: Endgame, we saw an aged Steve Rogers hand over his shield to Falcon, indicating that the mantle had been passed on. Later, The Falcon And The Winter Soldier explored Sam Wilson’s doubts and struggles in his new role as the new Captain America.
According to a report by Giant Freakin Robot, Chris Evans will be making an appearance in Captain America: New World Order. While he won’t have a major role, his appearance is said to be important to the film’s plot. The report suggests that Steve Rogers will be assisting Sam Wilson in some way, but no further details have been revealed.
Interestingly, Chris Evans has previously called his return to the MCU a “tall order” and expressed his reluctance to reprise his role as Captain America. He said that the character is dear to him, and he wouldn’t want to risk ruining his previous work by returning for a less-than-perfect storyline.
Fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Captain America: New World Order, and the recent rumor of Chris Evans returning as Steve Rogers has added to the excitement. While the actor himself has expressed doubts about returning to the role, the possibility of a cameo appearance has left fans wondering what part he will play in the film’s plot. Only time will tell if this rumor is true and how it will affect the future of the MCU.
