Chris Evans had Twitter all in an uproar when he appeared to be bidding farewell to his iconic role as Captain America.
Evans tweeted Thursday about his final day on the “Avengers 4” set.
This origin story about a less than sympathetic anti-hero is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding superhero movie canon. It started off a bit slow, but when it picked up the pace, the train was an unstoppable thrill ride with lots of witty banter and comedic moments.
Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office faster than any film in history.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the superhero mashup achieved the milestone on Saturday, its 11th day in release. That supplants the 12 days it took for fellow Disney title Star Wars: The Force Awakens to join the billion-dollar club. (The clock begins on the day a film opens overseas, which, in the case of Infinity War, was April 25.)
Captain America: Civil War opened in North America this weekend to an estimated $181.8 million, the fifth biggest domestic opening in history. As a result, Marvel now holds four of the six largest domestic openings of all time.
It’s official: The Punisher is getting his own TV series.
