Captain America is one of the most popular and incredibly strong Avenger in the MCU. He is a man of principle, values, character, and integrity. For him, the country comes first, then his own team and finally his own life. He has always led ‘The Avengers’ from the front, from Battle of New York to Wakandan siege in the Infinity War.
He survived the big snap orchestrated by Thanos, but he may not be lucky the next time. Chris Evans, the actor who plays Steve Rogers, has confirmed that Avengers 4 will be his last outing as Cap. He said:
“Well, the contracts done. A lot of our contracts are through. Myself, [Robert] Downey, [Chris] Hemsworth, we all kind of started roughly at the same time. I mean, I think we all through Avengers 4 kind of wrap it up. But at this point I don’t know what’s next, but yeah by 2019 that’s it… Well, we’ll see.”
He added: “You want to get off the train before they push you off.” Infact, a huge MCU fan took to twitter and imagined a fictional account of Captain America’s death. It said:
“WHAT IF STEVE DIES IN AVENGERS 4 AND THE POST CREDIT SCENE IS HIM WALKING INTO AN OLD EMPTY DANCE HALL (the one in the aou vision) AND YOU HEAR PEGGY’S VOICE SAYING “youre late…”
A Reddit user “clever798” has shared a post claiming it’s a new Captain America’s costume for Avengers 4. There has been a host of costumes that Rogers has donned in the MCU from campy (Captain America: The First Avengers) to tactical (Winter Soldier and Civil War) to hardboiled (Infinity War). Well, upon closer examination, this costume has a scale armor that Cap wears in the comics.
Could this be the costume that Captain America will wear in Avengers 4? Only time will tell.
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
The movie’s ensemble cast is totally mind-blowing as some of the biggest stars have been brought by Marvel including Josh Brolin (Thanos), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Vin Diesel (Groot), Jeremy Reiner (Hawkeye), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Tom Holland (Spiderman), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), Karen Gillian (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Paul Bettany (Vision).

The official movie synopsis reads:
