Chris Evans, mega-famous for playing Captain America, tweeted a fond farewell to the country last week. He recently finished shooting Avengers 4, and let fans know about his “emotional day” and “eternal gratitude.”
Here’s Captain America signing off, perhaps for the last time:
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.

After eight years of reprising the role, Evans won’t continue as Captain America following the upcoming sequel to Avengers: Infinity War.
It’s unclear what’ll happen to the character after he faces-off with Thanos next summer, but Evans seems ready to move on from Marvel’s cinematic universe.
His emotional tweet received an outpouring of love from fans (and Ryan Reynolds).

Cheer up, everyone!
We’ve still got another HUGE movie starring Evans as Captain America on the way, and maybe he will be good for a cameo in the future. Hopefully, he will teach Thanos a lesson or two on his way out the door.
Thanks for your service, Captain!
