A new rumor has hit the net suggesting Chris Evans may be getting replaced as Captain America.
It’s stated that Evans could be killed off in either Captain America 2 or The Avengers 2 with the reason being the actor is hard to get along with.
The rumor comes from the gossip site Celebitchy who states that the rumor could just be a public relations move for more publicity, but acknowledges that there may be trouble on the set and that Evans has even described himself as a “whiny little b-tch.”
According to the report, Captain America 2 is headed for reshoots, which is sited as possible further evidence.
While Chris Evans being replaced might be a stretch, the replacement of Captain America might not be so far off as in the comic books The Winter Soldier does replace Captain America for a time after Cap’s apparent assassination.
