Here is the reason why Robert Downey Jr. And Chris Evans Left The Marvel Cinematic Universe at the same time
It should not be a shock to know that Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans took an exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Avengers: Endgame.
In the most recent issue of D23 magazine, RDJ portrayed why he and Evans, who have been a part of the MCU since 2008’s Iron Man and 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, chose the time had come to leave.
“We had to get off. We opted to, and knew it was part of the job to get off the bus while it rolled on to other destinations,” he explained. “There’s something very sobering about it. I’m glad he and I will be there to welcome others as they retire their jerseys.
Downey, Jr. resumed saying that he’s “loathe” to discuss his on-screen legacy, particularly contrasted with his co-stars.
“I really don’t need to look any farther than my co-stars. Mark Ruffalo is an activist, Chris Evans is a diehard American and proponent of true democracy,” he explained.
He added, “I don’t really have the gumption, the skill set, the drive, or the humility either of those guys do.”
