With Avengers: Endgame reaching its first anniversary; it’s hard not to look back on the series and characters that defined the last decade of pop-culture. Chris Evans played the role of Captain America from 2011 to 2019. And his character changed radically over the course of the films.
Evolving from an idealist whose beliefs in the government he serves is unshaken to a rebel who starts questioning the orders he’s told to follow; Steve Rogers’ character arc was incredibly refreshing; culminating in him choosing a life of peace and solidarity with the love of his life.
Fans were concerned that Cap would wind up dying in order to save the universe. But in the end, it was ultimately Tony Stark who made the ultimate sacrifice. Cap’s happily ever after was certainly a satisfying finish. Not to mention him passing down the shield to Sam Wilson, the Falcon.
A year after Avengers: Endgame hit theatres the screenwriters and directors of the movie celebrated the anniversary of its release with a fan watch party; also sharing new set videos and photos. On Twitter, directors Anthony and Joe Russo shared a new Avengers: Endgame set video showing Evans being cheered on by the cast and crew of the movie on his last day on set.
