Actor Chris Evans is known for portraying Marvel superhero Captain America and ended his career in “Avengers: Endgame.” But could Evans ever recover? In a new GQ profile, Evans said he has a “never say never” attitude, but doesn’t count on it.
“It was such a wonderful experience. But I also have a lot of value in it,” Evans said of his role as Captain America (via Variety). “I’m very proud of that. And like I said, sometimes I can’t believe it even happened. And I wouldn’t want the black eye if it felt like a money grab, or if it didn’t live up to expectations, or if it just felt like it had nothing to do with the original thing. So it’s not time soon.”
In general, Evans said he hopes to “perhaps act a little less” in the future. He said he wanted to pursue his other interests and was happy with his acting career.
“I have never climbed a mountain in this area. I don’t have any Oscars and I’m not lumped in with other names that are in any way at the top of the mountain. But I’m also very happy,” Evans said.
At this stage in his career, Evans said he will be more selective in choosing roles. He said he is a big fan of the fall season and doesn’t want to be busy working while the leaves are changing. Maybe he will also devote himself to making furniture. “I just couldn’t make furniture for anyone and be happy,” he said.
Evans made his debut as Steve Rogers/Captain America in 2011’s Captain America. He played the character many times over the years in sequels to Captain America and the Avengers films.
Evans is also known for his voice of Buzz Lightyear in 2022’s “Lightyear” and for his roles in the Netflix films “Don’t Look Up” and “The Gray Man.” He also starred in the mystery film Knives Out. Before landing the role of Captain America, he played Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four.
The next Captain America film, 2024’s Brave New World, stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Captain America.
