Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), got his happy ending at end of EndgameRetired from the Avengers. We knew that was going to happen regardless, as Evans’ contract was up. Another option was death, but Tony Stark Jr. (Robert Downey Jr.), got the honor. But we’ve been expecting Marvel to surprise fans with their return ever since.
Many rumors have circulated since 2019, suggesting that Marvel might bring back these two characters to the MCU. Steve’s old age or Tony’s death would not even matter as there are ways to make it happen. Marvel can create prequels and multiverse movies with these characters without taking anything away. Endgame.
The actors would not confirm their return. While both Evans and RDJ wouldn’t rule out more Marvel movies, they’ll still say they’re happy with how things ended in the last Avengers movie. But we’ve got a good reason to believe that Chris Evans is returning to the MCU no matter what he’s willing to say publicly. This is something you need to know You might find some spoilers below..
Already, Captain America has been added to the MCU.
We’ll never know whether Marvel intended to reveal the entire Phase 5 and three significant Phase 6 titles at Comic-Con, or if it did it because the titles of most of those movies leaked a day early. It is important to note that many of the leaked trademarks were confirmed by Marvel, including the titles. Avengers 5 Avengers 6.
Captain America 4Also has an official title, and a release date. The plans state that New World OrderThe film will be released in theaters May 3, 2024. This is true Captain AmericaThe initial wave of trademark leaks included title.
But New World Order isn’t a story about Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers. That’s because the MCU has a new Captain America, which Evans has reiterated in interviews. In accepting the shield, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie). The Falcon, and the Winter Soldier. This is the story. Captain America 4This has been mentioned in many rumors.
Also, there’s a second Captain AmericaThese trademarks were leaked. That one probably isn’t about Chris Evans’ return to the MCU either.
The trademark leaked
Let’s look at the trademark leaks that preceded the Comic-Con event, and we’re going to mark the ones that Marvel already announced:
- Secret Wars: Avengers – November 7th, 2025
- Avengers: The Kang Dynasty – May 2nd, 2025
- Captain America: New World Order – May 3rd, 2024
- Thunderbolts – July 6th, 2024
- Multiverse Saga – the title of the current saga
- Avengers: Eternity Wars – unannounced
- Captain America: Black, White, and Red – unannounced
- Celestials at the End of Time – unannounced
- Midnight Sons – unannounced
- Nomad – unannounced
- Shang-Chi & The Wreckage to Time – unannounced
- Origins of The Black Knight – unannounced
We also bolded NomadYou can find the reason in the above list. That’s a Captain AmericaMovies that are not part of the film Captain America franchise. That movie might be the MCU’s super secret MCU movie that will bring back Chris Evans to Marvel Universe.
Marvel has confirmed nearly half of all trademarks leaked prior to Comic-Con 2022, which suggests that they are also genuine. Some could be part of Phase 6 as Marvel has 8 unannounced titles. Some could be Phase 7 titles. Eternity WarsThis certainly sounds like a post Phase-6 adventure.
Also, let’s remember that the Nomad trademark has appeared before, going unexplained.
Chris Evans will most likely star as Chris Evans Nomad
But NomadIt’s possible that Phase 6 will always include you. That’s how you get back Chris Evans to the MCU in time of a massive Secret Wars film where he’ll interact with all the new Avengers, despite being retired and all.
Nomad is Captain America’s alter-ego in the comics. After he has given up the shield, he uses this one. Steve Rogers is nomad for a short period of time. Other people have been called this in the MCU.
But looking at what we have so far, NomadIt must be a Chris Evans film. It could be a prequel in which Marvel shows us Evans’ past. Civil War Infinity War. This story may be relevant to the Multiverse Saga.
Or it can be a story of Steve Rogers’ days in an alternate reality where he married Peggy. In that alternate reality, there would have been a regular Captain America. Maybe he was a different person to keep his identity secret.
Finally, it could be a Cap from the multiverse that we’ll need in Secret Wars.
Nomad is a Chris Evans role, regardless of the circumstances. That’s how he can return without ruining Steve Rogers’ arc in Endgame. There’s no real point for Marvel to introduce the other characters who became Nomad in the comics.
We will note that Marvel’s plans can always change. This is the beauty of Marvel’s plans. NomadThe trademark has yet to officially be made into a movie.
