Avenger 4 would be the last movie of Avenger franchisee and the fans have been quite sad about it. However, another shock for the Marvel fans lands on the heels of the previous news, stating that Chris Evans would don Captain America for the last time in Avenger 4.
We know it is heartbreaking but the development also comes with few questions as to who would play Captain America now.
Who will it be?
Fans also believe that maybe the change of Actor would bring the gender or ethnicity of the character. According to Frank Grillo, the actor who played Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War believes so. In his interview with Larry King, Grillo stated, “I don’t know, but there’ve been rumors that (the next) Captain America could be African-American. It could be a woman. You know? So they’re looking.”
Evans, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful
On his role of Captain America, Chris Evans stated that “Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor,” Evans told his fans on social media. “To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
If you go by the comics, then Captain America legacy passes from one hero to another. There has been the instance where both Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson put themselves in the shoes of Captain America. Sam Wilson even became the leader of the Avengers.
Crossbones will be Back
While the speculations would not leave the side of the filmmakers unless fans are introduced with Captain America, Frank Grillo gives has given some interesting details about the upcoming Avengers movie.
Grillo confirms that Avengers 4 will have flashbacks sequences and he will reprise his role as Crossbones. Talking on the sidelines of UFC unfiltered podcasts, Grillo stated that he would appear in the last of the franchise as Brock Rumlow, a Hydra Agent and terrorist Crossbones.
To the uninitiated, Crossbones dies in Captain America: Civil War. About his role, Grillo stated that “He makes an appearance in the next Avengers movie.” He further added that “But it’s a flashback … I’m allowed to say whatever I want because I’m never doing another Marvel movie.” (The reason why not, he revealed, had less to do with Rumlow’s death and more to do with his age; “I’m 117 years old,” he said on a lighter note.
Well, we are sure for one thing that the final one from the franchise is going to be action-packed and engaging like every other Avenger.
