It is hard to believe that Avengers 4 will be the last time that we see Chris Evans playing Captain America, especially because it has only been seven years since we were first introduced to our beloved Cap. After portraying this integral character for six (soon seven) films, and having amassed a loyal following, it is really sad to see Evans leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

It all began when we met Steve Rogers – a small, gawky man with a big heart. When he is spotted by a professor at the army enlistment office, he agrees to undergo a trial to help him become the super soldier we now know as Captain America.It would turn out that selflessness and super-human strength are a formidable combination. Coupled with a nearly-indestructible shield, he was a force to be reckoned with. Throughout the movies, we’ve seen Cap go through a lot. He has had to make great personal sacrifices, deal with the losses of loved ones, and stand up for what he believes in, even if it places him at odds with the rest of the Avengers.

As the Avenger with perhaps the greatest sense of purpose, it is hard to imagine what the MCU will be like without him. It will be difficult to say goodbye to my favourite Avenger, but I can only hope that he exits the MCU in a way that does justice to the character.

 

As we bid him farewell, may we never forget to mind our language, to learn the virtue ofpatience, and most importantly,to be selfless in our pursuit for justice. Thank you, Cap, for everything.
