Could Chris Evans, who is seen as the best fit to play “Captain America” in the The Avengers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) be on his way out of the franchise? The popular actor talked about his contract status with Marvel and sounded unsure on what’s next for him and the popular comic book superhero.
“There’s no re-upping yet,” Chris Evans admitted in an interview with collider.com about his role as Captain America.
“It is so funny thinking about how fast time has moved. We started this in 2010, and six years is gone in the blink of an eye. In the beginning it was so terrifying, and now you’re almost scared… I’m scared to walk away.”
Evans was the “Human Torch” in the Marvel’s flop “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” in 2007 but was saved by his role as Steve Rogers in the first movie of the franchise, “Captain America: First Avenger”
Chris Evans admitted that he knows the changes in the comic books and that he can’t hold on to the shield forever.
“I know in the comic books the shield gets passed off. And what you do know, more than anything else in this process and meeting fans and experiencing these junkets and people who love the character, the character is bigger than you,” Chris Evans added in the interview.
“And whatever the character needs, whatever Marvel needs for that arc, I’m willing to do. So if that is me passing it off, you pass it off. But if they want to make more, I’m ready.”
What’s Marvel’s plan for Chris Evans as Captain America? Will he come back for more Steve Rogers heroic acts or will somebody step up and take the shield in future movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Chris Evans stars as Cap in Captain America: Civil War in the latest Marvel installment in what is expected to be another box-office hit worldwide in the coming weeks.
