Say it ain’t so, Cap! While Chris Evans still has three flicks remaining on his Marvel Studios contract, the thespian’s already dreaming of a world post-Marvel. I can’t really fault the guy, either. As much as I’d love to see him continue with Marvel as the First Avenger, 6 demanding action films so early in his career is a bit much. Especially for a dude who barely accepted the Cap role. He was convinced the Marvel franchise would interfere too greatly with his indie gigs, which I’m sure it has.
Here’s what Chris Evans had to say:
“I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting,with acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic. This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision. If I hadn’t done it, I’d be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move,”
If Marvel heeded my advice, then they’d transform Avengers 3 into the swan song for all of these first wave heroes (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk). Allow Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, and Black Panther to lead the next phase in their New Avengers Phase 4. Which is a solid possiblity, according to our latest scoopster.
