Although he didn't specifically say it in his tweet, Chris Evans appeared to be giving the nod that his time as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was coming to an end.
Evans posted a somewhat cryptic tweet a few months ago where he all but announced his time was up as Captain America, but now it appears that's no longer the case. In an interview with AP, Joe Russo - one-half of the Russo Brothers, the directors behind 'Infinity War' and 'Captain America: Civil War' - said that Evans may not necessarily be hanging up his shield just yet.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. 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.

"I think it was more emotional for him than us," he said of the actor’s tweet. "Only because he’s not done yet. I won’t explain what that means, but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about."
Russo also spoke about the editing for the as-yet untitled sequel to 'Infinity War', and described how the current edit for the movie has a whopping three-hour runtime. "It’s a very complicated movie. It has a lot of characters in it. We’re putting in the work, so we’ll see where it ends up, but it definitely has a lot of story in it," said Russo.
The rumour mill, however, has been working in overdrive over the past couple of days with regards to a potential trailer and title reveal for the the sequel. As of 1.04PM on November 30th, there hasn't been any word on a trailer.
Our guess? They're probably gonna attach it to screenings of 'Mary Poppins Returns', which is due out before the end of the year. Either that or they'll push the whole thing to the new year.
