Evans' tweet had received over 1 million likes as of Friday morning. Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool in the Marvel cinematic universe, and actor Dwayne Johnson were among those to respond on Twitter.
"I'm not crying. I'm weeping. There's a difference," Reynolds wrote.
"What a run you had brother. Congrats on breathing life into such an iconic character. Keep on keepin' on," Johnson added.
Evans debuted as Captain America in the 2011 movie Captain America: The First Avenger, and has since starred as the character in six films. He hinted at his impending exit in an interview with The New York Times published in March.
"You want to get off the train before they push you off," the star explained.
Avengers 4 will open in theaters in May 2019. The movie co-stars Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland and Chadwick Boseman.
