Twitter went into a state of uproar after Chris Evans appeared to be bidding a farewell to his role as the famous Captain America.
The star tweeted on Thursday that this would be his final day on the Avengers 4 set.
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.

Many fans sent emotional tweets about him leaving:
I don't want to see any emotional 'goodbye Deadpool' tweets EVER. My poor heart can barely take Evans leaving, I couldn't cope with that, too

This has actually hurt my heart. I am not an emotional person but I died 98% inside when I saw this. I will forever be grateful for the amazing job you have done with this character but I am very deeply saddened that captain America is no more. @ChrisEvans I have mixed emotions.

@ChrisEvans you’re a role model to me. You were an inspiration to me that I grew attached to you playing as Captain America! You’ll never be replaced Cap!!
