After eight years and just as many movies playing everyone’s favorite Star Spangled Man, Chris Evans official bid farewell to his time as Captain America.

The actor took to Twitter after officially wrapping his final scenes in Avengers 4calling the role “an honor.”

The tweet already amassed more than a million likes. Although Evans had previously announced that he’d be giving up the shield after Avengers 4, fans responded emotionally to the message. Many, including a fellow superhero, took the opportunity to thank Evans and bid him farewell.
