Chris Evans calling it quits after Avengers: Infinity War? Think again.


Rumors have circled for a while that Captain America himself, Chris Evans, would quit acting in order to focus on his directing career. During his press tour for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Chris Evans stated that “if I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he says. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” With Sebastian Stan’s contract 7 films and Chris Evans at 2, many assumed that Steve Rogers would die at the end of Evans’ contract. Thus giving Bucky the opportunity to take up the Captain America mantle as it transpired in the comics.

However, it looks like Chris Evans is having a change of heart. In speaking with the GT Times, Chris Evans spoke about his openness to staying with Marvel past Avengers: Infinity War. “I think it’s almost like high school. You’re kind of always looking ahead, about when you’ll graduate, but then when graduation day arrives you kind of don’t want to leave,” Evans said. “I AM gonna try and focus on directing a bit more, but by no means am I done acting. And if they’d have me back, yeah, I’d probably consider it.”


What a difference a year makes, huh? Since Evans has perfectly embodied the characteristics of Steve Rogers IS Steve Rogers, seeing him come back to the role would be a great thing. If Bucky is taking over as Captain America, then that hiatus will give Evans enough time to focus on directing. Down the road, if Marvel’s storyline calls for Steve Rogers to return then let’s hope that Evans is ready to return to the role as well.

Do you want Chris Evans to return as Steve Rogers?
