Just a year and a half ago, Chris Evans suggested that he was super done with the Captain America role. Now, Evans is reportedly getting ready to possibly wield the shield once again. Reports are that Evans is coming back to the MCU as Steve Rogers, although in exactly what capacity remains to be seen. The original report suggests it is not for another solo
In Marvel Comics, the Invaders were the team that Steve Rogers and Bucky were a part of during World War II. Alongside him were the original Human Torch (who was actually an android), and Namor, the Sub-Mariner.
An Invaders movie could pay off the cameo we see of the original Human Torch in
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Not only is this second outing for Stephen Strange going to include Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, but rumors abound that we are going to see many Marvel characters from alternate Earths (hence the title). There are even reports of Marvel characters from pre-MCU films like the Fox
And speaking of Multiversal shenanigans. It seems likely at this point, that the third MCU Spidey movie is going to involve the Multiverse in some capacity. If that’s the case, maybe we could get an alternate Earth’s Steve Rogers to show up too. I mean, at this point, just kitchen sink it, we say. Peter Parker and Steve Rogers don’t have more than a few moments of screentime together so far. However, the playful banter of “Brooklyn” (Cap) and “Queens” (Peter) was always a delight.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: Season Two
It’s probably too late for Evans to return as Cap for the upcoming
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
The title for this third
It’s pretty clear that Marvel Studios are setting up the characters for an eventual Young Avengers project. Whether that’s as a movie or a Disney+ series is up in the air, but all signs point to Marvel’s teen heroes getting the spotlight. But they will probably need a mentor figure to guide them when they do. Who better than Steve Rogers? He knows what it’s like being a (relatively) young superhero, and being part of a team. “Old Man Cap” could be for the Young Avengers what Professor X is to the X-Men. We would especially love to Steve’s interactions with the Young Avenger known as Patriot, who carries on his legacy.
