Due to the subpar response to Marvel‘s Phase 4, it was reported that the studio is considering reassembling the original six Avengers actors for a new film. Amongst those six is of course Chris Evans who played the titular role of Captain America, aka Steve Rogers.

With the recent rumor mill in full force, Evans appeared on The View, addressing the potential of his return. According to TheWrap, Evans suggested that the rumors are not impossible. While it seemed that Evans bid farewell to the role in 2019 when Steve Rogers’ story appeared to have ended with Avengers: Endgame, Evans is not closing the door on a return. He claims that he has not been contacted by the studio, though he has heard of the reports, “You know, I always see those reports too, and it’s news to me. I think every couple months, someone says that they’re getting Downey, and Hemsworth, and Scarlet [Johansson], and everyone’s coming back!…[But] no one’s spoken to me about it. And look, I would never say never, but I really — I’m very protective. It’s a very precious role to me, so it would have to be just right.”

The MCU has seemingly moved away from Evans, expanding the storyline for Anthony Mackie. While a special appearance from Evans could happen, it has not yet been announced or confirmed. Evans admits that he is worried about tarnishing his run from the role, “It’s tough, because look, I love that role deeply. He means so much to me, and I really do. I think there’s more Steve Rogers stories [to] tell, sure. But at the same time, I’m very, very precious with it…it’s like this little shiny thing that I have that I love so much, and I just don’t want to mess up in any way, and I was a part of something that was so special for the special period of time and in a way, it really landed so well.”
