“Avengers: Infinity War” is going to be an epic movie, but it will also make some major changes. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that there will be superheroes leaving at the end of the flick.

“Yes,” Feige simply answered when JoBlo asked him if “Infinity War” was the end for any of the superheroes. As always, Feige kept any and all specifics to himself.

Of course, fans anticipate some heroes to retire soon. Chris Evans’ contract is up after “Avengers 4,” and the Captain America actor is expected to hand over the shield to one of his pals (likely either Anthony Mackie’s Falcon or Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier). Yet it doesn’t seem like Evans is rushing to get out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) if they want him to stick around.

“I’ve had a great run. Superheroes are reinventable entities, like Batman or even James Bond,” he told USA Today in April. “These movies find new incarnations and new ways to tell the story. I am all for it. However they want to proceed after ‘Avengers 4,’ it’s really up to them. I walk away with no regrets and endlessly thankful.”

Chris Evans’ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man are both rumored to be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon, but neither have revealed when exactly they will exit. Marvel

Evans added that we might see a different member of the original Avengers lineup leave the franchise first. “Downey is far closer to reaching that point where he may walk away. And I don’t know how you replace Downey as Tony Stark. I don’t know who else can touch that,” Evans noted.

Iron Man’s fate remains a mystery. It seems Robert Downey Jr. is signing on for Marvel movies individually at this point. With his appearances in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Civil War,” he is clearly open to being in movies where he isn’t in the title role. Downey told Cinema Blend that he is happy to keep doing Marvel movies as long as they are well-written.

“What happens to me is that things are presented to me that are really well thought out by folks that have been doing this correctly for a really long time, and I go like, ‘Check,’” he said.

JoBlo tried to get Feige to hint at a future “Captain America” or “Iron Man” movie, but Feige said that wasn’t the focus right now. “We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”

While it’s difficult to narrow down who might be leaving the MCU, we definitely know a few heroes who are sticking around. It seems like most, if not all, of the Guardians of the Galaxy will stick around. The intergalactic misfits will team up again in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which director/writer James Gunn has revealed takes place after “Infinity War.”

It’s also pretty unlikely that recent additions, like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) or Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), would leave right now. Among the new heroes with a future in the MCU is Spider-Man. Tom Holland’s character will get a second solo movie after “Infinity War” as well, which is scheduled to film next year. Feige recently told Fandango that Spidey will be as present in “Infinity War” as he was in “Civil War.” “I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of ‘Homecoming’ and because of what people know from it, but it's about on par with [‘Civil War’],” he said.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is set to hit theaters May 3, 2018 and is currently filming in Atlanta.
