Chris Evans appears to have corrected reports that he is set to reprise his role of Captain America in a future Marvel movie.

On Thursday, the 39-year-old actor simply tweeted 'News to me' just hours after it was reported by Deadline that he was nearing a deal to once again play Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The online entertainment publication had revealed that it remains vague whether or not the deal has been closed but it is heading to the star returning in at least one Marvel project with the possibility of there being a second - so it seems Evans would beg to differ.

No doubt the news can be perplexing to many fans as Steve traveled back in time and became an old man at the very end of Avengers: Endgame. 

However fans of The First Avenger should not get their hopes up for another Captain America film as insiders claim that is unlikely to be another installment of that franchise. 

Apparently it will likely be closer to what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Man 3 as he appeared in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The publication reported that things had changed in recent months and the idea of returning had been floated to Evans to see if there was interest and the two sides had came to an agreement at the beginning of this year.

Marvel did not respond to Deadline's report.

The news may come as a surprise to many as he very publicly said goodbye to the character after wrapping Avengers: Endgame in October 2018.

At the time he took to Twitter to write: 'Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor.

To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.'

Elderly Steve Rogers also gave Anthony Mackie's character Sam Wilson AKA The Falcon the famous shield at the end of the 2019 film which was seen as a symbolic passing of the torch moment.

Evans apparently was not in the original plans for that scene as Mackie recently appeared on The Jess Cagle show on SiriusXM and made the revelation.

He said:  'Well, it's funny they actually wanted to cast an old dude to play Chris Evans. So they brought in like three actors. They're like, none of these, like this, isn't how Chris will look when he's old. Like, he's gonna, he's like George Clooney. He's going to be 95 and still like handsome, you know? 

'So they, they brought in a makeup team and prosthetics and makeup and made them into an old man. And how good of an actor Chris is it actually worked like he, he pulled it off with his voice and everything. He did a great job.'

Meanwhile, Evans has been keeping busy as he was recently announced to voice iconic Disney character Buzz Lightyear in an origin story film titled Lightyear set for release sometime next year.
