Chris Evans Leaving Captain America Role

Editor Tom Breevort has confirmed that Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/the Falcon) will be taking over the role in Captain America 3. He commented
Steve's spirit is as willing as ever, but his body is no longer up to the task of being Captain America. So he'll instead employ his skills as the new Cap's remote strategic advisor, running missions from his headquarters in Avengers Mansion and providing Sam with technical support and field information from a distance. He'll also tutor Sam in how to throw the shield, a skill that's deceptively difficult for the new Cap to master. So Steve will continue to be a vital part of the series moving ahead. And Steve is completely supportive of Sam as his hand-picked successor—the only replacement Captain America ever to be chosen by Steve himself. Steve and Sam are effectively brothers-in-arms, and there's a level of trust and camaraderie between them, that's matched only by that of soldiers who've fought shoulder-to-shoulder in foxholes on the battlefield.
UPDATE: This is why I go direct to the original source nowadays. This entire thing is in reference to the comics, not movies.
