The Marvel team is one big happy family. Sure, they went through some problems during Captain America: Civil War, but every actor involved in the Cinematic Universe keeps looking to return at every possible opportunity.
Take Chris Evans, for example. Even though he just led the way in Captain America: Civil War, the final installment of his Captain America trilogy, the actor is already looking for a route back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In fact, during his recent interview with MTV International, Chris Evans admitted that he wants to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Evans actually admitted that he wouldn’t be adverse to appearing in a Guardians film. But he can’t quite see how that would work as it’s set in outer space.

“Guardians would be fun wouldn’t it? I mean, but that’s very outer spacey,” Chris Evans explained. “Cap’s more of an earthbound guy. Maybe the next Spider-Man’s. You know those are going to be fantastic and I think Tom’s such a great actor so that might be a fun one to pop up in.”
Now, if Chris Evans means Spider-Man: Homecoming, then that would see Captain America come face to face with none other than Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man for the first time since their issues in Captain America: Civil War. Downey Jr.’s participation in Spider-Man: Homecoming has already been confirmed by the studio.
Marvel probably won’t want to overshadow Tom Holland’s full debut as Spider-Man with Iron Man and Captain America having an argument in the middle of his story, so they will probably avoid pitting the two superheroes against each other.
However, there’s every chance that Chris Evans could be eyeing up a spot in the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Obviously, that’s only going to be green-lit if Homecoming thrives at the box office. But the success of Tom Holland’s debut as the character in Civil War, the popularity of Spider-Man as a character, the fact that the actor has signed a three-picture deal with Marvel Studios, and Marvel’s repeated success at evolving their Cinematic Universe means it would be a huge surprise if a blockbuster follow-up didn’t take place.
Captain America’s hypothetical participation in Spider-Man: Homecoming would also give Steve Rogers the perfect opportunity to clear the air with Spider-Man after Civil War. After Tony Stark recruited Spider-Man to join Team Iron Man for his battle against Team Captain America, the webbed wonder spent plenty of time embarrassing his more experienced superhero rivals, particularly Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes. He even enjoyed a nice exchange with Chris Evans’ Captain America as the two bonded about being from New York.
In fact, seeing Captain America return to New York, where we only briefly saw him at the start of Captain America: The First Avenger, would be particularly enjoyable to see for fans of both the city, the character, and cinema in general.
However, during the same interview with MTV International, Chris Evans made it perfectly clear that he would be up for any appearance or cameo that Marvel has for him, as he adores playing the character.

“I’ve really found a level of comfort with the character over the course of, what is it, seven movies or something? I can’t even keep track, but we’ve been doing it since 2010, and now it really does feel like home,” Evans continued. “It just feels like very comfortable to me so, any way they want to use me in any other type of cameo, it’s fun to be, it’s fun to be a part of this chapter of cinema.”
We can expect to see Captain America appear in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and/or Part 2, while the end of Civil War teased that he’ll probably be involved in Black Panther, too.
