Next Captain America :: Probably a Black or a Woman
MCU actor Frank Grillo leaves fans of Marvel Studios in splits by revealing that the next MCU’s Captain America could probably be a Black or a Woman after Chris Evans. Chris Evans in the fifth installment of the MCU played Steve Rogers in Captain America : The First Avenger. With two standalones and three Avengers team-ups, Chris Evans became much of a franchise as Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark aka Iron Man.
Lots of aspects of the MCU may come to an end in Avengers 4. Fans speculating original characters like Steve Rogers and Tony Stark could die as MCU contracts for both Chris Evans and Robert Downy Jr. have run out. Adding fuel to it, Chris Evans too tweeted about wrapping Avengers 4 shoot and bidding farewell to the character of Captain America for the final time.
However, he later clarified, assuring his fans, that his tweet does not mean Captain America dying in Avengers 4. It is generally believed that Steve Rogers will possibly be hanging up his superhero alter ego in the upcoming movie. Well that raises many eyebrows about who will be the next Captain America – to which one of their co-stars has some ideas. According to Frank Grillo, the Captain America character will be played by an African American or a woman.
Although fan theories have other things to say as to who will don the suit of the superhero. Marvel Comics fans assumes that characters like Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) or Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) might also adopt the superhero’s suit after Chris Evan’s departure from the MCU. Both the actors have plenty more of MCU movies in contract. Also both have picked the vibranium shield at some point or the other in Marvel Comics. Moreover, the potential female Marvel Comics character who could don the Captain America suit could be Miss America / America Chavez– which could be introduced in the upcoming MCU movies.
Enough said, although it seems to be either Bucky or Sam, fans might love to see Miss America take the reins from Steve Rogers as Captain America. Keeping most of the events of the MCU tightly under wraps, Marvel Studios revels very less about what will exactly impact the future of the MCU and Marvel Comics. So regarding the speculation of who will be the next Captain America, all we have are fan based theories and speculations from Marvel Comics releases.
