Chris Evans Willing To Keep Playing Captain America


It’s long been assumed that Chris Evans wouldn’t be suiting up for more than a few more Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Not only has he already portrayed Steve Rogers a number of times, but his current contract is up after the Avengers: Infinity War two-part extravaganza.

On top of that, there are two other men who have assumed the identity of Captain America in the comics already established in the MCU: Bucky Barnes (currently the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan) and Sam Wilson (the Falcon, played by Howard Mackie). So Rogers will hand off the shield at some point and Evans will ride into the sunset to do other things, right?\

Maybe not. It’s possible we underestimated how much Evans enjoys making movies with Marvel, and especially the security that comes knowing that there’s a certain level of assured quality that the studio has established through the first two phases of the MCU. The actor recently spoke with Collider about the possibility of renewing his contract to stay in the role he’s made his own after Infinity War, and he left no doubt that he’d be glad to stick around.

"Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me. 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.”"

Of course that doesn’t mean that our original assumption was incorrect, because Marvel could certainly have someone else wield the shield temporarily. But just like Rogers inevitably finds his way back to the Captain America uniform in the comics, it sounds as if Evans has plans on doing the same thing in the movies.

Given how great he’s been as the Sentinel of Liberty so far, I can’t imagine too many fans would have an issue with that.
