Avengers: Infinity War marks the beginning of the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it.

Fans of the franchise know that come April, some of our faves will be permanently dead. Others know that come next May, we’ll be closing some long-running stories in the MCU with the untitled Avengers 4.

It’s an emotional time for us fans. None more emotional than the fans of Chris Evans’ Captain America. Today, in an interview with the New York Times, the actor confirmed his exit from the MCU following Avengers 4.

No more Evans Cap.

Still, it sounds like he’s leaving on his own terms. As he puts it, “You want to get off the train before they push you off.”

You know what? That’s fair. He’s done seven movies, extended his contract to include Avengers 4. He deserves the chance to get a proper send-off for his character and do whatever he likes.

All we’re hoping is that he gets a happy ending where he doesn’t die. Poor guy’s been through enough, just let him live happily somewhere.

Give him the farm. Let him have a farm somewhere. Then make either Bucky (Sebastian Stan) or Sam (Anthony Mackie) Captain America.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theatres April 27th. Avengers 4 will hit theatres May 3rd, 2019.
