Evans Has Yet to seen ‘Wandavision’ Yet

Captain America is too busy saving the world to be watching Disney+. During a recent stop at a virtual ACE Comic Con, Chris Evans made the substantial reveal he has yet to see a single episode of WandaVision. Appearing in a Zoom call alongside his brother Scott, Evans mentioned he’s simply hasn’t had a chance to sit down and binge through the Jac Schaeffer and Matt Shakman-led series.

“Marvel’s really moving into the streaming world pretty seamlessly and pretty dominantly,” the Captain America star said. “I’ve yet to see any WandaVision episodes, but every single day it’s trending, you know what I mean? People are loving it and Kevin Feige is king.”

Even though Evans himself was supposed to hang the shield up after his character’s arc wrapped up in Avengers: Endgame, the actor has been in the news again after reportedly inking a deal to come back as Steve Rogers. Evans has since denied any claims of a potential return.

A potential Captain America return gained so much steam on social media, Feige himself opted to shut the rumors down. “I rarely answer no to anything anymore because things are always surprising me with what happens, but that rumor, I think, was dispelled rather quickly by the man himself,” the producer said to Entertainment Weekly earlier this year.

In the present MCU timeline, there’s technically a new Captain America. Though Wyatt Russell is playing John Walker — a character often known as US Agent in the source material — he’s being called Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

“What I thought was interesting about John is that Steve was a soldier from a different era. They’re both soldiers from different eras, and the era of John is very different than the era of Steve,” Russell told EW about his controversial new character. “The type of military men who are going to Iraq and Afghanistan was different because the time was different, and the grey area now, you see everything. Everything’s filmed. There’s a much different way of fighting now. You go in guns blazing first and ask questions later.”

WandaVision is now streaming in its entirety on Disney+.

Marvel Reportedly Planning Captain America 4 With Chris Evans

Marvel Reportedly Planning Captain America 4 With Chris Evans

Despite bringing what can only be described as a fitting end to his career at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, it would seem that Marvel isn’t quite done with Chris Evans’ Captain America just yet. That’s what a new report published by Giant Freakin Robot earlier today claims, at least, citing inside sources – the same ones that have accurately leaked miscellaneous information pertaining to the MCU previously – as having informed them of the studio’s unannounced plans for Captain America 4.

So, you’re probably wondering, then, just how a new story featuring Steve Rogers would play out in a post-Endgame world? After all, the First Avenger isn’t exactly in peak physical condition any longer thanks to his one-way trip to the past and considering that he explicitly passed the Cap mantle to Falcon before officially entering retirement, we’re not so sure what, if any, place he’d have in the realms of fighting crime in the present day.

Coincidentally, GFR’s source notes that Sam Wilson (AKA Falcon) will actually be the central focus of the fourth Captain America movie, with Steve Rogers – portrayed once again by Evans – presumably being a supporting player or mentor figure to him as well as the Winter Soldier.

This, of course, is far, far from being confirmed in any capacity, and were Marvel to truly pursue an indirect sequel to Civil War, there are multiple narrative angles from which to approach it. What with time travel being an established trope within the movies and the upcoming Spider-Man 3 proving that no aversions to exploring the multiverse on the big screen exist, there’s every opportunity for an alternate reality Rogers to appear or, conversely, a story that takes place between two timelines (i.e. the character’s life back in 1940s America as well as modern times).

What ultimately transpires, we’ll just have to wait and see, but suffice it to say, we’ll be keeping close tabs on this as it develops. In the meantime, let us know what themes you’d like to see explored in Captain America 4 down below!
