Chris Evans, who played the character of Captain America, just broke millions of hearts worldwide last Thursday when he bid his final goodbye to the Avengers and the Marvel universe after playing Captain America for the last time in Avengers 4. No doubt the farewell note was drenched in the tears of his fans and even his colleagues in Hollywood.
In response to Evans farewell message, Robert Downey Jr shared a personalized message for Chris. The actor posted a picture of Toy Story’s Buzz Light-year and Sheriff Woody dressed as Iron Man and Captain America, captioning it: “We all know who the real sheriff in town is @ChrisEvans,”.

While fans are sad everywhere with the news of Evans is moving on from Steve Rogers/Captain America and the MCU, Evans has been up front about his time in the franchise having an expiration date for some time. Even back in 2014, the actor reminded BuzzFeed while filming Avengers: Age of Ultron that his contract had a specific expiration date and that he’d miss it when it was over. Who knew the expiration date would come this soon?
When bidding farewell to his fans and on-screen Avengers family, Evans said. “I mean, I’m going to miss these when they’re done. I really will. This has been a lot of fun, and they’re only getting more fun. Especially because there’s a trust in Marvel that you’re going to make something good. It would be really lousy to be stuck in a contract knowing that you’re making sh-t. And I just don’t feel that way. It’s really a blessing that this kind of fell in my lap. Sometimes you don’t really feel deserving of it. But I’ll take it.”
While it seems that Avengers 4 truly does mark the end of Evans’ time in the movie series, how Steve Rogers’ story will wrap up remains a mystery. Until then stay tuned for more!
