Chris Evans is planning on playing Captain America for as long as he can, even though he has been suggesting that his acting days are numbered. His directorial debut, Before We Go, is out in theaters now and he would like to focus solely on his directing career after the end of his contract after Avengers: Infinty War part2. But Marvel is a different case, as he told Collider:
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.
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!
Looks like he won’t be retiring after all and we won’t have to deal with reboots character recasting .
