With Marvel Studios looking to bring back the original six Avengers for Avengers: Secret Wars ahead of its 2027 release, another actor is said to have signed up for the Multiverse Saga’s grand finale...

Marvel Studios may be reevaluating its future plans for the Multiverse Saga, but another big casting rumour is doing the rounds on social media this weekend. 

Yes, we're talking about Avengers: Secret Wars again and another of those original Avengers that Marvel Studios is supposedly so keen on enlisting for its grand finale to this current era of storytelling. Earlier this week, we told you that Robert Downey Jr. has reportedly signed on the dotted line to play Iron Man again, and now Chris Evans is said to be on board to return as Captain America.

Once again, we have no idea whether he will star as a Variant or the original Steve Rogers (heck, for all we know, he might suit up as the Human Torch). What we can say, though, is that this is very good news. 

The last time Evans played Cap was in Avengers: Endgame; in the movie's closing moments, he returned to the present day after travelling back in time - presumably to a branched timeline - as an old man and gifted Sam Wilson his shield, passing the mantle of Captain America to his friend in the process. 

However, Steve was absent from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and all we know is the former Avenger is "gone." The Statue of Liberty has since been redesigned in Cap's honour, suggesting the world believes he's dead (and he very well may be). 

As for Avengers: Secret Wars, a role for the original Captain America is a must. As far as we're aware, only Scarlett Johannson is left to be enlisted for an MCU return, so here's hoping Kevin Feige has fully smoothed things over with the actress after former Disney CEO Bob Chapek decided to take her to task for wanting what she was owed after Black Widow largely bypassed theaters for Disney+'s short-lived Premier Access platform. 

Some fans are thrilled at the possibility of the original six Avengers assembling again, while others feel it's a misstep on Marvel Studios' part. After all, we've already bid farewell to the Infinity Saga's take on Earth's Mightiest Heroes, so do we need to do so again? It will come down to story and, with the Multiverse at play, there's likely fun to be had here. 

What role do you think Captain America should play in Avengers: Secret Wars

Make him the fantastic four human torch to help wrap up all those stories. I really think that's the most interesting angle to take secret wars.
LogansRazor - 11/5/2023, 1:29 PM
@Origame - or as HT in Deadpool 3 and gets killed off 🤔
LogansRazor - 11/5/2023, 1:30 PM
@LogansRazor - or Foxverse is 1 of the Battleworlds!!
Origame - 11/5/2023, 1:41 PM
@LogansRazor - that too.

Maybe secret wars is ditching Kang for a team of multiversal bad guys.

Think about it. Green goblin, deacon frost, magneto, and Dr doom all team up in battle world and it's up to a multiversal avengers team to beat them.

And it ends with a reboot of the mcu.

@Origame - that would be pretty funny. Everybody expecting him to return as Cap, while he has signed on as Human Torch instead.
Origame - 11/5/2023, 2:58 PM
@bkmeijer1 - exactly
LogansRazor - 11/5/2023, 4:00 PM
@Origame - I could totally mess with that!! Add Leiv Sabertooth but more animalistic, 70s show Venom,....liking your proposal!!
AlexGSpeaks - 11/5/2023, 1:26 PM
There is an actors strike going on right now. Nobody is signing on to anything at the moment. No one is in discussions with anyone at the moment.
LogansRazor - 11/5/2023, 1:28 PM
@AlexGSpeaks - off the record, officially, lol.
StSteven - 11/5/2023, 1:28 PM
Just give me Old Man Rogers sitting on his porch waving his cane around trying to shoo away the flerkins running around on his lawn. Seriously, if they ever wanted to bring Coulson back into the actual MCU "A:SW" would be the place to do it. Especially now that Hill is "gone", Fury needs a buddy up on his big old lonely space station.
DeadpooI - 11/5/2023, 2:18 PM
@StSteven - He sure does. Him and...

StSteven - 11/5/2023, 5:39 PM
@DeadpooI - Sure. I mean, if Marvel is ever going to bring in any other characters from any of the previous shows or whatever, now is the time to do it because (1) they can use the Multiverse to explain pretty much anything right now, and (2) I highly doubt that fans (as well as the GA) are going to be in the mood for any more Multiversal shenanigans after the Multiverse Saga is over. So it's pretty much now or never(ish).

Can't you guys just tell how confident the MCU is in its appeal after the original saga ended?

UncleHarm1 - 11/5/2023, 3:15 PM
@URCOMMENTSUCKS - Your comment sucks
DocSpock - 11/5/2023, 1:31 PM

Bad idea from creationally bankrupt Disney story telling stooges.

Bringing back the original Avengers is like admitting they don't have enough faith in their current multiverse/variant/Kang era of MCU movies to succeed without this lame regression.

Alien, Star Wars, Terminator, etc, etc. If they go in this direction, they will just run the whole thing into the ground.

braunermegda - 11/5/2023, 1:50 PM
@DocSpock - they ain't coming back, friend, this is just another rumor from this asshole Josh and this unbearable profile my time to shine hello, this dumbass acts like this is a reliable source all the time
DocSpock - 11/5/2023, 2:49 PM
@braunermegda -

I truly hope you are right.

SauronthePower - 11/5/2023, 3:27 PM
@braunermegda - I actually think (irregardless of Josh) that they will/are but I am most definitely NOT subscribing to the theory that they negotiated/signed during the strike

I think keeping Downey and Evans away from the MCU for an eventual nostalgia/reunion tour was ALWAYS Feige’s macro, long-play strategy for Phases 4-6

That all being said…MTtSH should hardly be taken as a bellwhether of anything
FlopWatchers5 - 11/5/2023, 1:34 PM
MCU just got whack as f uck lol
Saga - 11/5/2023, 1:44 PM
In the middle of the strike?? Sure...
JobinJ - 11/5/2023, 1:44 PM
Is this set it the past?

AmazingFILMporg - 11/5/2023, 2:04 PM
Nobody is surprised. It's secret wars💁
LordHarryLatts - 11/5/2023, 2:14 PM
I'm more interested to see how much Renner will participate in Secret Wars...if he does at all.
Timerider - 11/5/2023, 2:22 PM
@LordHarryLatts - Kate Bishop will be doing his job, and he will be sitting at a command center at Avengers headquarters sitting down at a computer helping his teammates on the battlefield. His injuries will be addressed in the movie as Kingpin broke him.
Taonrey - 11/5/2023, 3:20 PM
@Timerider - Renner never fought kingpin, I'm guessing you mean off screen
Timerider - 11/5/2023, 5:34 PM
@Taonrey - yes, off screen. Otherwise, people will wonder what happened to his character. I say after the events of Hawkeye, he decided to face Kingpin and lost. He could say Kingpin threw him in front of a garbage truck and it crushed him.
Taonrey - 11/5/2023, 8:58 PM
@Timerider - ahh okay yeah I'm cool with that, it gives kingpin a boost, and if they want they could always film a flashback with a stunt double.
bkmeijer1 - 11/5/2023, 2:24 PM
Just use me as a source, because I'm saying every original Avenger is returning.
KennKathleen - 11/5/2023, 4:07 PM
@bkmeijer1 -
bkmeijer1 - 11/5/2023, 4:50 PM
@KennKathleen - oh, but I do. And with Secret Wars being probably three years away from shooting, I'd even sare say Renner is returning
S8R8M - 11/5/2023, 2:37 PM
Sorry guys. Matt Salinger is coming back as Captain America. Lou Ferringo is in talks.
EgoEgor - 11/5/2023, 2:37 PM
Why are people acting like this was never the plan? That's the beauty of Secrets Wars and the multiverse. It'll be a variant versions of the characters.
