Chris Evans gets strangely existential about his time as Captain America

By the time Chris Evans After securing the coveted role of Captain America, he was already a household name. If you hadn’t seen his early work sunshine or Pressit’s likely you knew about his first Marvel foray Fantastic Four. Evans starred in the much-maligned superhero film The Human Torch and made two films before the franchise was effectively canceled. However, his role as Steve Rogers was a real success. But no matter how much time and effort he put into becoming the optimistic and fearless leader of the Avengers, it wasn’t that easy for him Snow Piercer Actor. He confided GQ about his doubts about fame and acting as a whole, despite already being in the industry up to that point.

“I remember in my late 20s my feelings on set and promoting films really changed: a little more fear, a little more insecurity. In the end you always ask yourself: Is this what I should do?”

This had less to do with his doubts about the source material – although there are valid criticisms of that – and more to do with whether he actually enjoyed being in the industry. Appears in The Avengers Films gave him a big payday, but it shouldn’t shock anyone to hear that he was no longer sure he was being fulfilled.

“The benefits were that I could provide for my family forever; The downside was that I would become deeply dissatisfied with fame and loss of control.”

Since stepping away from the role of Steve Rogers, Evans has had a lot of time to explore the roles. With Rian Johnson Knife out, he appears to be the polar opposite of Captain America. His role as the rich and entitled Hugh “Ransom” Drysdale is almost shocking to those who only know him as Steve. He also tackles the opioid crisis alongside Emily Blunt in the Netflix series Pain addicts. This separation allowed the actor to express his creativity, but he assures fans that he has no regrets about joining the MCU.

“I love playing [Captain America]. I relate to it in a way that when you see a character again so many times, you can’t help but try to adopt some of their characteristics and measure yourself against them.”

Since Robert Downey Jr. likely shaped some of Tony Stark’s humor and associated traits, Evans seems to be a person of good character, which is why he has come to question his history in Marvel. So much so that despite his uncertainty about whether he was in the right position to play Captain America, even the head of Marvel noticed.

“I think the world knows he did a spectacular job. And a lot of it went out of his mind,” Kevin Feige noted. If there was a perfect actor to portray Steve Rogers, it was surely Evans. But we don’t forbid him from looking for variety either.
