Chris Evans Discusses The End Of His Captain America
How many actor’s do you know that would wish for the end of their franchise? Chris Evans was in that jovial mode during a recent interview with The Telegraph discussion his new movie, Gifted. He explains his initial hesitance taking on the Captain America role and subsequently being tied down for 6 movies.
“One of my biggest fears was that the movies were going to be good,” he says, “Because if things worked out, I’d have to do all six of them. And at the time, that was the most terrifying aspect of it. That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing.”
He later describes the reason for making another appearance, with Infinity War Part 1 being his sixth and supposed last time playing the iconic character.
“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter,” he explains. “They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man – and couldn’t get them all into one movie.”
Chris Evans came to the conclusion that the two movie arc would be the best way to end his time with the shield, but gave nothing away as to the ending.
“I’ve been on sets where you get a vibe that everyone’s making a different movie,” he says. “The director one, the actors another, the producers another one still. Marvel has a way of ensuring that on the day filming begins, everyone is making the same meal.”
Will this be his grand finale though??
Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters May 4, 2018.
