Rick and Morty almost cast Chris Evans for Season 5. The Adult Swim show debuted its new season in June, with guest voices previously including Jim Gaffigan, Alison Brie, and Timothy Olyphant. Celebrities all around have shown off their fandom for the show on social media, occasionally resulting in a casting opportunity. Some have come in as new characters and aliens, similar to Stephen Colbert or John Oliver, and some have come in for self-special parodies of themselves, as Elon Musk.
Rick and Morty maker Scott Marder says Chris Evans was almost in Season 5, as indicated by Comicbook. There was an unspecified person that Evans was theoretically qualified to play, and the producers “moved around” casting Evans in any case put it towards a yet obscure entertainer. Regardless, Marder called himself “a major comic book geek” and recognized that putting a Marvel consider along with the show would be of incredible interest to him. Most of the time, the maker said that casting guest stars has been a liquid and straightforward process:
Most of them are [fans]. Sometimes we hear individuals are just fans. Other times, we have an incredible casting department, and a ton of times they’re just ready and offering up the ideal individuals for those roles. It’s typically lovely natural. Fortunately, this show is so gigantic that it’s regularly lovely fast to find a solution from individuals… on stuff which makes our lives easier.
Given the show contains an Avengers spoof (“The Vindicators”), the chance to use Evans to spoof the franchise would be much the same as It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia famously using The Office entertainer Oscar Nunez to taunt more “attractive” sitcoms. Rick and Morty’s off-kilter edge would’ve been more outfitted at punching up at Marvel – the highest-grossing franchise ever – with its posterchild, Evans, as the fist. Instead, fans would have to sit tight another season for another chance at the genuine Captain America on The Vindicators, or perhaps in general new person inconsequential to Marvel. All things considered, as Evans said he was finished with Steve Rogers, he may even be alluding to spoofs.
