Chris Evans Grows Reflective as Avengers: Endgame Nears

Despite denials that Avengers: Endgame will be Chris Evans’ final turn as Steve Rogers, he still sounds like he’s on the Captain America farewell tour.

The MCU star has been having a tough time coming to terms with the final showdown against Thanos. He seems to be more broken up by the coming of the latest installment than his fellow castmates. There have been rumors that Endgame will mark Evans’ final bow as one of the original Avengers and an interview with The Hollywood Reporter doesn’t do much to squash that suspicion.

Evans drew questions from a bowl and the first one struck a nerve. Asked what his last memory of filming Endgame was, Evans responded, “Getting emotional on the last day of filming. It was surprisingly emotional.”

The actor could mean that something particularly moving happens in the plot, but we have our money that his feelings were linked to saying goodbye to the role. Still, that has not been confirmed and we would be surprised if Captain America was the only fatality when all is said and done.

However, taking down the First Avenger will be no easy task. Captain America has put up a good fight through several films, including a particularly memorable one. It is possible to take on several attackers when you have time to maneuver and evade, but when they’re all on top of you in a restricted space, it is even more impressive. Evans was asked about his favorite scene in a Marvel film and it is certainly a popular one.

“I’m partial to that fight scene in the elevator,” Evans replied referring to a sequence in The Winter Soldier. “That was the first scene we shot in the second Captain America movie. It was my first time working with the Russos, it was the first time where it felt like Cap was kind of on his own. In the first Cap movie you know, you really felt like everyone was holding my hand, and the first Avengers movie I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one that I really kind of felt, I suppose, pressure, and that first elevator fight scene came out really great in my opinion.”

Evans may be waxing nostalgic, but the fight isn’t over yet. All of the remaining members will need to combine their effort to bring Thanos down.

Avengers: Endgame unfolds in theaters April 26.
