The comment was about his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since he stated that his agreement would run out after Avengers: Endgame.
In the due course, Chris did retire as Captain America in the Endgame. Since 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger he has impersonated this character.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day, to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.” The tweet was interpreted by many as official confirmation that Evans was done with the role. Nearly two years later, it has over 1.35 million ‘likes’. Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds had tweeted in reaction, “I’m not crying. I’m weeping. There’s a difference,” Evans commented on October 4, 2018 on Twitter, after the shooting for Avengers 4 as it was popularly known back then terminated.
His comment turned out to be controversial which made him to clarify his statement. “I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler. I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry,” he said at ACE Comic-Con.
“You feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel. And I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming or denying anything,” he further added.
