The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Scarlett Johansson is going to get a huge ton of cash for working on the standalone Black Widow movie which recently got its director. According to THR, Scarlett’s salary is equal to what the delicious Captain of America, Chris Evans, and what the hunky God of Thunder and Muscle Mass, Chris Hemsworth, were paid for Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok. Scarlett will be earning a grandios $15 million for playing Black Widow in her own movie.
There comes a time in every superhero franchise actor’s life when it’s time to return the tights to wardrobe and return to civilian clothes, and that time has apparently come for Chris Evans (for those who can’t keep their Chrises straight, he’s the dog one). Chris broke the news today on Twitter:
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.

This news isn’t too much of a shock for anyone who follows Chris Evans. Earlier this year, he admitted that he didn’t want to play Captain America forever, saying that it’s better to get off the train before they “push you off.” It was rumored that Avengers 4 would be his last, and it looks like that rumor was correct.
However, there is a chance Chris is just being extra with his post-wrap goodbye tweet, and that he might not be officially done. If Chris is treating his breakup with Captain America anything like he treated his breakup from Jenny Slate, then this might be true. Let’s see, claiming to be over while simultaneously gushing about how much he loved the time they spent together. I guess we’ll have to wait to see if Chris starts saying flirty stuff about Captain America on Twitter. Sadly, that will most likely be less of a hint that they’re back together, and more like a full-on confirmation that Chris Evans has lost his mind.
Today is National Pet Day, a day when everybody posts a picture of their pet. So basically it’s like every day since not a second goes by when a friend doesn’t post a picture of their dog on Facebook with false words like, “Isn’t that the best dog alive?” The answer is always: No, motherfucker, because it’s not a picture of my dog (and yes, if it was a picture of my dog, he’d be making “please save me from that bitch Michael” eyes).
To celebrate National Pet Day, famous people have been posting pictures of their pets. Like Vladimir Putin tweeted a picture of his favorite pet, Donald Trump, (he didn’t do that, I think), and Chris Evans tweeted a video of when he and his adopted dog friend Dodger first laid eyes on each other at the pound. Chris told People that he was shooting a scene for Gifted at the pound, and at first he thought that all the dogs there were actor dogs. But when he found out the dogs actually lived at the pound (and were shamelessly taking jobs away from real actor dogs!), he walked down the kennel aisle and met Dodger, who was about 1 years old at the time.
Dodger stayed sitting for a minute, because he was probably thinking, “If a famous Chris is going to adopt me, I’d rather it be Chris Crocker or Christopher Meloni, but you’ll do, I guess.”
This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello. Rescue dogs are the best dogs!! #NationalPetDay pic.twitter.com/XjWxPWGDPu

Well, there goes the world’s supply of ovaries. And if Chris Evans wants to post another video that’ll make hos swoon themselves inside/out, he’d post a video of him taking a razor to that dreadful pedostache.
After playing Captain America/Steve Rogers in at least 1.7 million different Marvel movies, it sounds like Chris Evans is ready to hang up his shield and tight blue pants and call it quits. Captain America is the second person this week that Chris Evans decided he’s done with.
Avengers: Infinity War – starring Captain America and everyone else – comes out a month from now. Chris will also appear in what is currently being referred to as Avengers 4, coming out May 2019. It sounds like Chris is done after that. During an interview with The New York Times (via The Hollywood Reporter), Chris implied he’s ready to retire by saying:
“You want to get off the train before they push you off.”
The Hollywood Reporter points out that Captain America is just one of several Captain Americas in the comic books. There are internet rumors that Chris’ Captain America might die in Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4. And they already have two Captain America’s waiting in the wings to take his place. Sebastian Stan (aka the Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (aka the Falcon) are both rumored to be possible replacements.
Chris Evans first appeared as Captain America in 2011. Before that he played Johnny Storm in two Fantastic Four movies. So it’s probably time to get off the train before he’s stuck playing superheroes. But what is a basic brunette superhero hottie named Chris going to do then? Whatever he does, he better do it on the down-low, because the last thing he needs is all the other brunette Chrises (Pine, Pratt, and Hemsworth) finding out and following him. The trick is to get in early before the market becomes over-saturated.
The whiplash inducing on again, off again relationship between Chris Evans and Jenny slate has officially careened off a cliff. Or maybe it just swerved a little on the freeway while Jenny was trying to light a bong between her legs and the car did a little badump badump badump on the idiot bumps between lanes. You never know with these two! But according to The New York Times, it’s over.
Chris Evans and Jenny Slate have been playing coy about whether or not they’re dating again for the past month. They could just come out and say “Yes,” but that’s no fun. Where’s the not-subtle cutesy Twitter flirting? Chris and Jenny are once again dropping hints about the status of their relationship, but this time Chris’ dog has been dragged into it.
