Civil War Will Mark the End of a Finite Captain America Movie Trilogy
You might say Civil War puts a cap on it.
Marvel president Kevin Feige considers Civil War to be a conclusive end to a trilogy of Captain America films (starting with The First Avenger, leaving Winter Soldier as the middle child). Rumors have already begun to fly that Civil War might end with Cap’s death, since there’s a comic book precedent for that—but before we get that idea spinning, let’s recall that Chris Evans’ contract stipulates that he gets to play this role in six Marvel movies … and Civil War marks number five.
Speaking at an event in L.A. about the home release of Age of Ultron, Feige told MTV News,
It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy. I think one day you’ll look back and watch Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War, and it’ll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character.
Plus, Evans has said he’d really like to keep on playing Captain America for even longer, if possible, which seems like a weird thing for him to say if he knows his character is about to die.
Chris Evans’ sixth appearance as Captain America will probably happen in Avengers: Infinity War, I guess—and some have speculated that the final Avengers film(s) may actually be where the “Death of Cap” storyline is included. I like Evans’ portrayal of this character and all, but two more movies sounds like enough to me. Then again, maybe I’m getting a case of the ol’ superhero fatigue. What do you think?
