Chris Evans Openly Jokes About Captain America’s Death in ‘Endgame’

"After I die by Tony's hand, I just said, You know what? I can't watch this."

Marvel

In a new interview, Chris Evans talked a lot about his childhood, his political activity, his friendship with Robert Downey Jr., and his future as an actor and director. But it’s his comments about what happens in Avengers: Endgame that will attract the most attention.

Marvel fans have been steeling themselves for Cap’s death since Infinity War. Evans’s Marvel contract is widely believed to be up, and he’s made several comments about wanting to pursue other projects, including directing. So while there’s certainly some evidence that Cap will make it to the next film, not many will be surprised if he doesn’t.

And if he is on his way out, he’s not above making a joke or two that could rile up the fanbase, even though he told The Hollywood Reporter that he hasn’t even seen the entire movie.

“Yeah,” he says. “I wish I could. Uh, it’s — I mean — it’s a good one. It’s a real good one. I saw, like, the first hour of it.” Why’d he stop? Evans couldn’t bear to watch Iron Man take out Captain America.

“After I die by Tony’s hand, I just said, You know what? I can’t watch this.”

Evans did offer some real information, all but confirming its three-hour-plus runtime, before joking that Cap’s funeral lasts an hour of the film. OK, Chris.

But seriously, if you are looking for real clues about what happens in Endgame, Evans did offer an accidental bit of real information.

“I can’t believe they even cut together a trailer,” he says, “because so much of it is a visual spoiler. You’ll see. A lot of the characters have”—he starts to say before covering his mouth.

It was likely a minor violation of the Marvel confidentiality rules that have been drilled into him since he took on the role of Captain America eight years ago.

The other sincere comment Evans made about the movie concerns its quality.

“This one’s really good. I choked up like three times.” Whether that’s because Captain America dies we won’t know until the film hits theaters on April 26.
