Forget all that talk of Marvel killing-off Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War, as Chris Evans seemingly confirms he’s indeed apart of Avengers: Infinity War. I’ll say that there’s even a tease to Cap’s involvement in Infinity War during the events of Age of Ultron, so stop thinking they’re going to kill Cap before then.
“You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.“
In a recent interview, Chris Hemsworth outed Chris Evans having a similar contract finishing-up his third movie then heading into Infinity War alongside him. This was missed by a lot of outlets including Collider who conducted the interview, Evans’ new statements seem to further support that.
I talked about how popular Captain America has become lately, almost on the same level as Tony Stark meaning the studio wouldn’t be that quick to get rid of the character, fans thinking either Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson would be given the mantle soon, that doesn’t seem to be the case at least at this point in the MCU.
Civil War just started production today, while Infinity War is said not to start until fall or winter in 2016. The Russo Brothers are confirmed to direct the three films, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely writing the scripts.
