Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr will be seen in Avengers: Endgame together, perhaps for the final time.

Actors Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr are known for their bromance online and often have their fans in splits with their banter. In a new Twitter exchange, the two gave Marvel fans more reasons to root for Captain America and Iron Man’s friendship ahead of the release of Avengers: Endgame.

Downey shared a picture of Captain America and Iron Man toy figures taking refuge underneath Cap’s shield from raining fire (or a simple sparkler in this case). “BFFs let you share their umbrellas, right @ChrisEvans ?,” Downey wrote in his tweet. Evans replied, “Technically it’s YOUR umbrella. But I’m happy to hold it.”

Evans is not wrong though. The vibranium shield was made by Tony’s father many years before he was born. It was given to Steve Rogers when he became Captain America. The shield is currently at perhaps the Avengers headquarters where Tony must have put it after taking it from Steve in Captain America: Civil War.


Of course, their fans loved this social media ‘flirting’. “Iconic duo and they know it,” wrote a fan. “Super friends helping each other out makes me happy,” tweeted another. “Just get married already,” wrote another. Check out more reactions:






Chris announced last year on Twitter that he has ‘officially wrapped Avengers 4’ and also talked about his character as if he was leaving it for good. Chris had written, “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 in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.” He had said it before the release of May’s Avengers: Infinity War that Endgame will be his last movie in the MCU.

However, Chris later said at an event: “I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.”

Even Russo Brothers said that Evans is not yet done with the MCU. “I think it was more emotional for him than it was us because he’s not done yet. I won’t explain what that means but fans will soon understand what I’m talking about,” Joe Russo had said.

Whether Endgame marks the end for Captain America, we will know when the film releases on April 26. The film is expected to be 3 hours long, the longest runtime for any Marvel movie ever.
