In an recent interview with Esquire, Chris Evans opened up about filming for Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and his friendship with the other Chris on the team – Chris Hemsworth (Thor). With Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out and Captain America: Civil War begin filming next month, Evans had a lot to say about his future at Marvel.

On Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War filming:

“You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.”

On his best buddy, Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor.

“Oh yeah, [Chris Hemsworth] is like a brother at this point. We’ve had a very similar trajectory in, at least, being welcomed into this world. We both took these [Marvel hero] roles. We were both timid and nervous and didn’t know how it was gonna play out. It’s been nice to kind of share this with him. We each have the standalone films as well, which can be a whole separate element of pressure and anxiety, and he’s just been so helpful to me. Just to have someone else who’s going through the same struggles I am.”

Check out Evans and his fellow Avenger Chris Hemsworth this weekend. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens this Friday in theaters everywhere.
