Nah, Evans is still on contract for one more Cap sequel, and one more Avengers film (though, whether that covers one film being split into two is another matter). It's probably safe to say he's on borrowed time, though.Nooners said:I'm placing money on Cap dying. Bucky's out there, and him taking over would serve as both redemption for him and tension for everyone else (particularly Black Widow). Besides, there have been all those money shots of Cap's shield shattered, and in that brief second of him fighting Ultron, it look like Ultron's overpowering him a bit.
And out-of-universe, I think I've read that Chris Evans wants to work behind the scenes rather than on-camera these days.
From what I've been hearing, "Civil War" is going to be less about the world at large and more about infighting among the heroes roster. The feelings might be echoed among the general population, but to pull it all off in only ~2 hours it is all but guaranteed to be a "Avengers piss each other off and break up the band" type gig. MCU and comics are indeed pretty different, but there's plenty of ways the same flashy events can happen for completely different reasons.hermes200 said:Are we sure Civil Wars in the MCU is going to be Cap vs Ironman?
I know they would want to keep it close to the source, but I don't see many scenarios were Tony "lets leave an investigative hearing blowing kisses" Stark would be an advocate of more governmental control of superheroes. Besides, both Evans and Downey seems to be harder to keep under the Marvel umbrella, to the point that is assumed to be the last movie of at least one of them...
so the "war" could just be stark gunning for bucky and cap trying to save him?Darth_Payn said:Hmmm, what could Cap and Iron Man fight about in Civil War? OH, IDK, but how about the fact that Bucky, while brainwashed as the Winter Soldier for HYDRA, killed Tony Stark's parents?!
Maybe so, but it's the kind of promotion the movie would kill to prevent. "You have to watch some random episode in the middle of the second series of a mediocre TV show that you haven't been following before you can watch the blockbuster film you've been looking forward to for the past year" is not something anyone in charge of said blockbuster would ever allow to be said. While they may both be Marvel, for some reason I suspect the films would be given rather more weight if such a possibility were ever raised at all.MovieBob said:"You HAVE to watch this episode if you want to know what's going on in the biggest movie of the summer!" is the kind of promotion any TV series would kill for
