As Marvel/Disney continue to dominate the comic book world movie franchise and while fans eagerly await the next instalment of Captain America, titled Civil War, due next year, Chris Evans who plays the costumed super-human has spoken about his future plans.
After the previous instalment, The Winter Soldier, Evans had said that he might retire from acting to take up his passion for directing instead. However, in a recent interview with Collider, he provided more clarification stating:
“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.”
His directoral debut Before We Go has so far received less than stellar reviews, the synopsis of which reads:
“Two strangers stuck in Manhattan for the night grow into each other’s most trusted confidants when an evening of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives.”
Evans’ contract with Marvel is due to expire after Avengers: Infinity War which will consist of two movies. It is expected, and hoped by many however, that given how successful the Avengers/Captain America movies have been over the years, Evans will be true to his word and if Marvel ask him to extend his deal, he will indeed do so.
