The filming of the upcoming Marvel series, "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" is underway, and there are strong hints that Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, is going to be killed off once and for all. Prior to Endgame, Chris Evans's contract with Marvel looked like it was coming to a close, so a Captain America death seemed inevitable. Although Steve got a hero's happy ending in Endgame, it's still hard to say goodbye. Beware of spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame.
It Makes Sense
It would make sense for Cap to meet his final end at last. In Avengers: Endgame, Steve traveled back to the past for the last time in order to ensure the stability of the new present-day after the battle with Thanos. Ultimately, Steve made the last-minute decision to return to his own time period and chooses to live his life with his true love, Peggy Carter. When we last see him, Steve is now an old man in his 90s, implied to have lived a full and happy life. He then presents the Captain America shield to Sam Wilson, a.k.a, the Falcon.
Chris Evans's Time With Marvel Is Kaput
Further evidence of Cap's probable offscreen death is indicated by the show's IMDB page. Chris Evans is not listed anywhere as part of the cast. That doesn't necessarily mean we won't see Steve in a flashback, but it seems highly unlikely that Evans will be participating. Evans himself has confirmed that his time with Marvel as Captain America is over., so if we do see Steve, it'll probably only be restricted to clips pulled from the films to be used as a flashback.
It's Probably for the Best
For the context of the show, it might actually be better to have Steve completely out of the picture. Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes were Steve's best friends. Steve's memory will likely serve as a point of bonding for the two of them. It doesn't look like we'll see Steve training Sam in his Captain America ways, but Bucky has some relatable experience and wisdom that he can impart to Sam while he's adjusting to his new role. Likewise, Sam can be a grounding force for Bucky and present-day guide, similar to how he was for Steve.
It's Going to Be a Wild Ride
While it sounds like we've seen the last of the original Captain America, it probably is for the best just to let him pass on while the MCU moves forward. Cap has received a hero's reward, and now we have a new dynamic team with characters we've grown to love. Fans already admire the characters of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, as well as their actors, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. Even without the beloved Steve Rogers, these two should have a compelling story ahead of them.
