Chris Evans, who plays the popular character Captain America in Marvel’s The Avengers franchise, tweeted to say goodbye to the role, writing, "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."
Rumours then began to swirl, with some fans thinking that the tweet revealed more than it let on. Soon it spread like wildfire – Captain America dies in the final movie, Avengers 4. It news got so big that it reached the star himself and he took it upon himself to clear it up. The37-year-old, who attended Comic Con, revealed that he was not insinuating the cap dies in the final film of the insanely huge franchise.
He said: "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."
So technically, the actor did not agree or deny the news, but he did say, "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 nor denying anything."
