So there has been a lot of talk about how Chris Evans' Marvel Contract is going to expire after three more movies (not including the Winter Soldier).
It is most likely that those movies are going to be [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) ( aka. Avengers 2), [Captain America 3](movie:994409) (which was recently confirmed), and [The Avengers 3](movie:738027) . The topic up for debate is if they do decide to do a Phase 4 and an Avengers 4, what will be the fate of Captain America? I think the most probable outcome will probably be in Avengers 3, Captain America will either die or pass on his role to his former sidekick Bucky aka the Winter Soldier. So if Chris Evans really decides not to renew his contract for more movies, and he does really retire from acting, Marvel's only options for continuing their use of Captain America is to 1) recast him, or 2) (more likely) pass on the Captain America role, which has been done in the comics FYI. I don't know about everyone else, but I would be perfectly fine if the role of Captain America was passed on because after a third Avengers movie I don't think we could ask for much more from Chris Evans. He has done a fantastic job and if he wants to take a break he has every right to do so. Marvel has done a great job at being very creative with their storylines so far and if they do go on to a Phase 4, I imagine they will still be able to keep us entertained.
Now in regards to the Avengers movies in general, its looking like Avengers 3 will involve the Avengers and the [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) going up against Thanos, I'm not completely sure where they will go with Avengers 4. In my opinion there are not many villains that are as big as Thanos in the Marvel Universe that are not owned by other companies. Dr Doom and probably Galactus are owned by Fox. Apocalypse is being used in the next X-Men movie after [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942) and other huge villains like Ultron and Loki are already being used. If I had to take a guess however, I would say they may try to do an Avengers version of the Masters of Evil. I don't have any evidence to support this but besides the fact that I think it is one of the few possibilities, I think it would make a pretty cool movie.
So feel free to comments on what you think regarding the Captain America and Avengers situations, as always keep in mind that most of what I have said is my opinion. What are possibilities for both Captain America and the Avengers after Avengers 3? Is there anything I may have missed? Looking forward to hearing from you guys.
