In the tweet, Chris Evans says that it “has been an honor” to play the role of the walking Star-Spangled Banner for the past 8 years after he made his debut in the titular role in Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011. Since then, he has carried the Shield as Cap with him in other MCU films such as: The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and the most recent Avengers: Infinity War.

In an article by The New York Times back in March, Evans stated that he will move on from his role as Captain America and out of the Marvel/Disney franchise and take a shot at Broadway instead. Although this announcement is still heartbreaking to many after his contract ends following the fourth Avengers installment, there is still a heart and attachment that is left behind with the fans seeing Chris Evans leave the Shield behind.
