Evans took on the jerky grandson of a murdered thriller author in Rian Johnson’s newest movie. Additionally, Endgame gave a nod to the comics when 2023 Cap says, “Hail Hydra” within the elevator scene. So MCU Cosmic founder Jeremy Conrad says that the introduction of a multiverse can be the right option to convey Evans again to the MCU with out erasing his former position.

When requested about the potential of a movie or TV collection that may present what occurred when he returned the Stones, Evans mentioned, “You know, I’m not sure I can give you those answers. That’s weak as s***, but ask the writers.” Speaking of them, Endgame and Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely aren’t eager to convey him again.

“I love writing for Cap, I love Evans. But I really feel, much like [with] Tony [Stark], we got them to a place where they don’t need to do it anymore,” mentioned Markus.
