Chris makes his final appearance as Captain America in the currently untitled Avengers 4. While his role as Captain America had a relatively small amount of screentime in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War, the writers of that movie and Avengers 4 have said there will be much more Cap in the next installment.
Avengers 4 will hit cinemas in 2019.
