    The story of superhero Captain America in the Marvel cinematic universe has come to an end in the iconic final Avengers movie, "Endgame", bringing fans all over the world to tears. Or has it?

    Shortly after reports emerged on Thursday suggesting that American actor Chris Evans might reprise his role as Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, social media exploded with delight and frustration.

    According to Deadline, citing insider sources, Evans might once again be suiting up as the iconic superhero in one or potentially two new Marvel movies. The reported comeback, however, is said to not be centered around the fictional Steve Rogers character, with sources suggesting that it is "more likely to be like what Robert Downey Jr. did after Iron Man 3, appearing in films like Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming."

    The news comes although Evans had been vocal about hanging up his role as Captain America after "Avengers: Engdame" had Steve Rogers transferring the iconic shield to his friend Falcom, portrayed by Anthony Mackie.

    Marvel fans appear to be divided over the reports, with a significant group noting that, despite their love for both Evans and his character, it might be time to pass the torch.

    ​Some suggested that Evans could return in a "multiverse" alternative scenario, which would not conflict with his original arc from "Endgame".

    ​Others could not care less about scenarios, but are instead simply delighted about the possibility of their favourite hero's comeback.

    ​Several users suggested that the recent political turmoil in the US was what prompted the need for Captain America to return.
