Captain America: Civil War
Chris Evans as Captain America in Marvel movies Marvel

Chris Evans is no longer Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Steve Rogers had a difficult time in Captain America Civil War — from choosing Winter Soldier over Iron Man even after learning that Bucky killed Tony Stark's parents.

By the end of the movie Chris Evans's character puts down his shield and walks away from his heroic mantle. When the American hero reappears at the end of the movie, to help his allies break out from The Raft — the superhero prison in the middle of the ocean — he is seen without Captain America's iconic stars and stripes suit. Marvel fans are still wondering if Steve Rogers dropping his shield is a hint that he is going to quit being Captain America, and we finally have an answer.

Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo in an interview with Huffington Post confirmed that Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America. Joe said, "I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity. [It's] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making."

However, it is confirmed that Chris Evans's character will appear in Avengers: Infinity War. Writer Christopher Markus revealed that the reason Cap was not killed in Civil War was because the Avengers will need his help to defeat Thanos in Infinity Wars. "There's a big purple guy coming. He could be very helpful," said Markus.

Captain America: Civil War arrives on Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on 2 September and on Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on 13 September. Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theatres on 4 May 2018.
