Old Captain America’s appearance at the end of Avengers: Endgame brought Chris Evans’ mother to tears because he looked so much like his grandfather.
Seeing Old Captain America in Avengers: Endgame made Chris Evans’ mother cry. In the lead up to Endgame, fans were wondering exactly how the MCU film would wrap up Steve Rogers’ journey, since Evans’ contract was up and the mega-franchise was looking to move beyond its original heroes. A large portion of fans predicted that Steve would die in the final battle against Thanos (Josh Brolin), but the Star-Spangled Man With a Plan once again defied expectations and lived to the end. The final moments of Endgame reveal Steve opted to travel back to the 1940’s to live out his dream life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Now an old man, Steve returned to the present day to pass his shield on to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).
Fans might be sad to lose him, but Evans’ post-MCU career looks bright. He most recently appeared in the crowd-pleasing whodunit Knives Out as the spoiled Ransom Drysdale and will next be seen in Apple TV+’s miniseries Defending Jacob. Beyond that, Evans is in talks to star in Little Shop of Horrors alongside Taron Egerton and fellow MCU co-star Scarlett Johansson, and is also attached to director Scott Derrickson’s next project.
