Joseph Russo, who wrote and directed Avengers: Infinity War with his brother Anthony Russo, recently revealed that Chris Evans was in fact, going to be reprising his role as Marvel character Captain America, despite fan speculation.

“I think it was more emotional for him than us,” Russo explained in an interview to USA Today. “Only because he’s not done yet.”

Speculation and theories arose after Chris Evans tweeted on his official account @ChrisEvans, in October.

“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,” the tweet read, which at the time of writing has 1.43 million likes, 355,000 retweets and 62,000 comments.

“I don’t want to explain what that means but the audience will soon understand what I’m talking about,” Russo continued.

In a following interview where Russo promoted his new restaurant Simone in downtown Los Angeles, California, the director teased details of Avengers 4.

“We killed half the Marvel universe so for us it really is about, in what ways can we surprise the audience and tell a very challenging story,” he said, adding, “We’re about halfway through the editorial process and it’s standing about three hours right now. It’s a very complicated movie.”

“It has a lot of characters in it and you know we are putting in the work, so we’ll see where it ends up, but it definitely has a lot of story in it,” Russo teased. (acr/kes)
