After The Hollywood Reporter shared that “Captain America 4” is in the works, the outlet announced that Anthony Mackie will be reprising his role as Sam Wilson and the film’s lead has not been cast.
There has been speculation on whether Evans would return to the role, and he set the record straight on Twitter on Saturday.
“Sam Wilson is Captain America,” he wrote back to The Hollywood Reporter’s tweet. It appears that Evans, who starred as Steve Rogers, will not be reprising his role and announced Mackie’s role in the film.
Evans starred as Captain America since the first Marvel movie about the superhero was released. “Captain America: The First Avenger” hit the box office in 2011.
The outlet shared that the film recently found its producer, Nigerian-American filmmaker Julius Onah.
Nel 2020, Evans spoke on the Hollywood Reporter’s “Awards Chatter” podcast and shared he almost didn’t take on the role as Captain America due to anxiety.
“All of a sudden your hobby becomes your job,” Lui ha spiegato. “Anxiety comes with that.”
Evans said the inability to wrangle his anxiety forced him to turn down the opportunity to audition for the leader of the Vendicatori known as Steve Rogers and his alter ego Captain America multiple times in the series’ installment of “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
