According to the actor, it would be easier for him to return in the role of the Human Torch than as Captain America:
“Look, I would love to. I would love. That would actually be easier for me than coming back as Captain America. Do you understand what I mean? Cap is so precious to me. And you know, I almost don’t want to get in the way of what a beautiful experience it was. But Johnny Storm, I feel like he hasn’t had his best days yet.

Understand the rumors of Chris Evans’ return to the Avengers universe!
In 2021 it was reported that Marvel Studios is developing the movie Captain America 4! Obviously starring Anthony Mackie, our Sam and new Cap. The series will also be written by Malcolm Spellman, the lead showrunner and writer of the Disney+ series.
Marvel really liked the guy, and it all makes us curious about what other characters from the series might appear in the movie. While we speculated that, fans quickly created the biggest wish for the film: the return of Chris Evans!
As much as Steve Rogers is out of the picture, a quick cameo from the former Avenger would certainly go down well. And because of that, fans remembered an old news also from 2021, that Chris Evans was in negotiation to return to Marvel.
So just put 1+1 together and Chris’ return would obviously be in captain america 4, right? Only… no! According to Deadline, the project Chris was negotiating to participate in is not the new Cap movie. It’s another thing.
To this day, Marvel still hasn’t confirmed these rumors and what Evans’ mysterious project could be. Maybe there will be news in September, at D23, an event that has already confirmed a panel in which Marvel Studios will present news about its future.
