Via his personal twitter account, Chris Evans has officially said goodbye to his role as the beloved super hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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.
