The question of whether Chris Evans’ Avengers: Infinity War role is a cameo or not has been thrown around by fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Samuel L. Jackson made a cameo in Iron Man back in 2008, and the same went for Chris Evans’ cameo in Avengers: Infinity War. However, Marvel has defined what constitutes a cameo, and Chris Evans’ role in Avengers: Infinity War is one of the many examples.
During his tenure as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Evans has starred in a variety of movies, including the hit 2016 superhero movie, Captain America: Civil War. But before he got his big-screen debut as the iconic hero, he was a cartoon character, first appearing in the 1950s in Timely Comics’ Captain America Comics #1. The role of Captain America was first created by comic book creators Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
Evans has reportedly said he would not take up a multi-film contract for a single role as Captain America, and that he would prefer not to get involved in the Hollywood circus. In the past, Evans refused to take up a six-film deal with Marvel Studios. That contract expired after the release of Avengers: Infinity War, but he was persuaded by Disney to sign on for another three films.

The cameos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are a large part of the film’s success. Many actors, including Samuel L. Jackson, have comeo roles, but how much screen time does a character need to be considered a cameo? Currently, the criteria is set by Marvel Studios. A cameo must be less than fifteen percent of the film’s overall run time. As such, Chris Evans’ Avengers: Infinity War role is just over seven minutes.
Although the role of Rid in Avengers: Infinity War has not yet been confirmed, it has been rumored for years. Peter Dinklage has long been linked to a role in the movie. However, details about his role were kept under wraps. Among other things, Dinklage’s character has been sized up to dwarf Thor. He is only four feet five inches tall, so he isn’t exactly a tall man. Nonetheless, his giant makeover breaks with the comic-book look of Eitri the Dwarf King.
While it is possible that Chris Evans will make a cameo in Avengers: Infinity War, this is unlikely. The director of Ragnarok is Taika Waititi, who has previously starred in the MCU as Hulk. His co-stars include Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Tessa Thompson. Cate Blanchett returns as Hela, one of Thor’s foes.
The Marvel Studios film “Thor: Ragnarok” will also feature a cameo by legendary comic book artist Stan Lee. The iconic writer-illustrator has long been the requisite cameo in Marvel movies. Waititi has managed to make Korg not only a character in the film, but also comic relief and a deus ex machina.
Whether or not Chris Evans’ Thor will make a cameo in Avengers: Infinity War remains to be seen, but a cameo by Loki is a possibility. This character is one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the character has a long history of causing havoc in Marvel films, Chris Evans’ Loki will not bother Thor in his latest adventure. However, Loki does have a history of deception and it is unknown if he will show up in Avengers: Infinity War.
Fans are left to speculate whether or not Chris Evans will reprise his role as Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel Studios film. Though not an Avenger, Ant-Man fought alongside Captain America in the Civil War, helping Cap fight off the villainous Iron Man. His fights also featured Black Widow, War Machine, Vision, and more. As for the role in Avengers: Infinity War, Evans is currently negotiating the details of the project.
While the storyline of Avengers: Infinity War is still in development, fans can expect a dramatic end to the ten-year cinematic adventure. The film will feature the Avengers, new characters, and the villain Thanos. As the only thing standing in their way, they must sacrifice everything to defeat Thanos and his evil intentions. The film will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Chris Evans will reprise his Ant-Man role as a cyborg in the film.
