Avengers: Endgame star Chris Evans on Saturday responded to the growing fan-launched #ThankYouAvengers social media campaign.
“Some of these #ThankYouAvengers posts are incredibly touching. I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude today,” the Captain America star tweeted with the hashtag #ThankYouAvengersFans.
The movement comes with the release of Endgame, which has rolled out in almost all territories worldwide, already entering into the top ten highest-grossing movies of 2019.
Responses to Evans’ post saw Marvel fans pay tribute to the star following the expiration of his contract with Marvel Studios. Evans has dutifully filled the role since 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, appearing in a Marvel Cinematic Universe production every year since.
Evans first tweeted an emotional signoff in October when initial filming wrapped on the fourth Avengers:
“It was an emotional day to say the least,” Evans wrote in the October 4 tweet. “Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
Avengers: Endgame is now playing.
To me, personally, you've taught me that one should never EVER suffer under the hands of bullies. No matter what your size is, if you believe in what is right, no bully can force themselves on you. Be it the government or a galactic warlord.#ThankYouAvengers, for everything 💜 pic.twitter.com/Y5Eop88akV— 𝓟𝓮𝓻𝓾 ✨𝓢𝓪𝔀 𝓔𝓷𝓭𝓰𝓪𝓶𝓮 (@pretaehyungah) April 27, 2019

You are to Captain America what Christopher Reeve is to Superman. Other actors will take hold of that famous shield, but you will be the standard to which their performances will be measured. pic.twitter.com/NjkqMVqr8Y— Boudica's Heir (@dawg4life99) April 27, 2019
