We weren’t hopeful Captain America would survive Infinity War, but we definitely think he’s going to die in Avengers 4. Not only will it take some big sacrifices from the remaining members of the team to undo the Snappening, Chris Evans has already said goodbye to the franchise. However, co-director Joe Russo has now said the actor’s farewell isn’t what we thought it was, because Evans isn’t finished with Steve Rogers and the MCU.Which would be great, if not for the fact there’s no reason to listen to anything the Russo Brothers say about the franchise.

Worst of all for their credibility is how they have insisted Infinity War‘s deaths are permanent, even while sequels with dusted characters are being shot and planned. At best, a statement like that can only end up being “technically true,” which is a another way of calling it a lie.It’s likely they are bending the truth now about Chris Evans returning to the MCU in some capacity after Avengers 4, and this is an attempt to throw us off the scent so we’ll be shocked when he does die. Even if the Russos are telling the absolute, honest truth, we have no reason to believe them. They’re the directors who cried wolf, then killed the wolf and said he”d never return, only the wolf just filmed Wolf-Man: Far From Home.So we’re just ignoring them now. They can tell us Cap dies, Cap lives, Cap un-dies, Cap retires, Cap opens up a Shawarma restaurant in Brooklyn, or an other fate. Nothing they say matters; we’re going to see Avengers 4 anyway. The Russos’ comments don’t help or hurt the movie; they’re just noise. What we really want is for them to just stop saying anything about the movie… unless they’re finally going to tell us what the title is. We’d like to hear that.
