While Anthony Mackie is set to star in the film as the new Captain America, the publication expressed doubts that Evans’ would not be involved at all. 

‘It is unclear whether Chris Evans would reprise his role of Steve Rogers, AKA the first Captain America (although if the question of who is entitled to carry shield continues to be posed, all bets are off. Plus, having stacked casts in solo movie outings is a main Marvel ingredient at this point.),’ the article read. 

After THR tweeted out its article, the Knives Out actor emphatically responded, ‘Sam Wilson is Captain America.’
