Chris Evans caused plenty of uproar not too long ago when he signalled his intention to step back from acting. While he was excited about moving into the director’s chair, fans who love seeing him play Captain America were pretty disappointed. Collider recently asked him about his current Marvel deal, and the possibility of him carrying on past that.
Back in 2014, Evans talked to Variety about his deal with Marvel. He told them, “I bet by 2017, I’ll be done.” That day seems to be fast approaching, but Evans hasn’t been quite so sure on leaving Captain America behind since then. In his chat with Collider, which you can see below, the actor sounded like he’s up for extending his current contract:
“There’s no re-upping yet. It’s so funny thinking about how fast time has moved. We started this in 2010 and six years has gone in the blink of an eye. In the beginning it was so terrifying, and now you’re almost, I’m scared to walk away. For the past six years there’s always been, ‘next year we start that one’. It’s been wonderful, especially because the movies are so good. When you make good movies, who wants to stop doing that? I know in the comic books that the shield gets passed off. Whatever the character needs, whatever Marvel needs for that arc, I’m willing to do. If that’s me passing it off, I’ll pass it off. But if they want to make more, I’m ready.”
While Evans sounds like he wants to come back, things don’t seem all that certain. Since a new contract hasn’t happened (yet), he has just one film remaining. With the two-part Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon, it makes us wonder how this will affect his future with Marvel.
Even if he doesn’t play a full part in those films, he still has a word or two to offer on the upcoming Avengers movies in the video below.
For now, though, Evans will be back onscreen in Captain America: Civil War heading to theatres on May 6.
