Avengers: Endgame may have served as the official send-off for some of our favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes like Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America but a lot of fans aren't ready to let go just yet. In fact, a lot of people want to see Chris Evans back in the MCU now that the Captain America franchise is ushering in a brand new era with Anthony Mackie in the lead.

Last year, reports began circulating online that Evans inked a new deal to return as the Star-Spangled Avenger in future projects but that's something Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was quick to dismiss.

Now, Chris is finally breaking his silence regarding his potential return to the MCU — in a story that would revolve around Steve Rogers returning the Infinity stones but the star of Pixar's Lightyear admits that it would be a "tall order".

Speaking with ComicBook, Evans reveals that reprising the Captain America role isn't something he's eager to do simply because he left the MCU on a high note. He explains: "I don't want to disappoint anybody but it's tough to... It was such a good run and I'm so happy with it."

He continued: "It's so precious to me. It would have to be perfect. It just would be scary to rattle something that is, again, so, so dear to me. That role means so much to me. So, to revisit it, it would be a tall order."

I totally get Chris' inhibitions regarding a potential return as Captain America and just like he mentioned, he already had a good run with the character and tarnishing his legacy in the MCU isn't something he'd like to do.

Meanwhile, Captain America 4 is currently in development.
