Marvel, the current hot property is known for its juicy contracts and ambitious superhero movies shot on extraordinary scales. The studio that is moving towards its third phase already has about a dozen movies that they will be releasing. Since many of the actors who have been a part of the movies released earlier playing varied superheroes, it is quite certain that their contracts are soon up for renewal.
According to Cinema Blend, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige does not expect the actors to terminate their contract soon. He, however, will not hesitate to find a replacement for the actors if he thinks it’s necessary.
With the studio’s willingness to replace actors (if there are any who wants out of their contracts), it certainly looks like some characters could also coming to an end of their story.
Top in the possibilities of being replaced and adding more fuel to this rumor is Steve Rogers aka Chris Evans making an exit from his contract. He has been playing the coveted role since 2011 and will be completing his fifth film as the character; there are chances that Chris might not want to play the role anymore. Reasons for that is his desire to focus on other roles and a career in direction.
Other reasons too show his exit could be possible because in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War,” Steve is killed by Crossbones aka Frank Rumlow and the responsibility of wielding the shield is passed on to his best friend and colleague Bucky Barnes who was brainwashed to become the Winter Soldier. If the studio were to follow the comic line then Sam Wilson aka Falcon could also take on the role of Captain America as he did in the comic book after Steve Rogers died.
One could also retire the way Hawkeye and Iron Man did in the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” but that does not mean they will vanish off because they could make their presence felt in the movies now and then. Whatever the case be, only time will tell if fans get to see the old breed of actors or the more newer ones on screen playing their favorite characters.
