Russo's comments have fans wondering if Evans will continue to play Cap in other movies or if the character will survive but will be played by someone else.
After Evans' October tweet, he tried to clarify he was referring to his time playing Steve Rogers, not the fate of the character.
Evans joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2005, playing Johnny Storm in "Fantastic Four." It's been his portrayal of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, that has left its mark on fans' hearts, however.
The actor suggested last year that his time wielding the vibranium shield would be ending after the latest “Avengers” movie, which is slated to open next year.
"My contract is up," he said during a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
