In the second most shocking piece of entertainment news this year, following on from the fact that Armie Hammer might be a cannibal, Deadline are reporting that Chris Evans has signed on to play Captain America again.
Details are sparse but it seems he is contracted for one film with the option of a second. It is unlikely that it will be a new addition to the ‘Captain America’ franchise and will probably be something more akin to Downey Jr.’s involvement in the ‘Spider-Man’ franchise.
Evans had publicly stated he was finished with the role so this is a massive about face. Talks are rumoured to have taken place over a few months with the contract signed at the start of the years.
Of course, Marvel have no comment.
