Chris Evans will play Captain America for as long as Marvel wants him
Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been worried about the future of Captain America lead actor Chris Evans for some time now. After an interview last year where the actor hinted that he might be leaving the role once his six-film contract had run its course, fans flipped out in fear of what it might spell for the greater Avengers series. However, roughly eighteen months later, Evans is singing a different tune.
“Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me," Evans tells Collider. "I’ve never had such a relationship where you have such—I mean look at my resume, I’m used to being on set being like, ‘Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?’ Marvel just can’t stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor.”
Evans continues: “It’s so mind-boggling that I was so tentative in the beginning to jump onboard. What an asshole I would be if I hadn’t done this. I mean can you imagine? Kicking myself—I’d never forgive myself!”
Chris Evans is set to reprise his role as the first Avenger in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. While his future after that film is unconfirmed, it seems like we can rest easy—Evans seems at peace with his future at Marvel.
