Chris Evans on his potential return as Captain America
Chris Evans has not ruled out a return to play Captain America in a future Marvel movie, but insists that it can’t be a “cash grab”.
The 38-year-old actor insists that while it’s unlikely he’ll ever don the star-spangled shield again, it’s not impossible.
"If you're going to revisit it, it can't be a cash grab. It can't be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together," he said.
Evans was speaking during Variety’s Actors on Actors show, featuring both himself and fellow Avenger Scarlett Johansson. The actor said while he loves the character a lot, he was thankful the Russo Brothers “let him complete his journey”.
While Evans statements don’t point to any standalone Captain America films with him at the helm, it certainly doesn’t rule out his character appearing in future Marvel films in some way, shape, or form.
For example, the solo Black Widow movie takes place well before the events of Avenger’s End Game and features the origin story of the superspy. And considering this takes place back in time, there’s no reason why characters like Iron Man and Steve Rogers might not come back one last time for the fans.
