Chris Evans On How Long He Wants To Play Captain America

‘Captain America: Civil War’ is upon us, and now the questions turn to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Chris Evans attended a press conference Monday to discuss the movie, the impact of the MCU on the film industry, and his future as Captain America.

“In the first couple years of your involvement in the franchise, you’re very internal. You’re scared about being the thing that’s going to cause it [to fail], you’re going to be awful, and you’re very terrified in a very ego-ic manner. But as you kind of continue on the journey, you kind of realize how amazing it is what they’re doing and what they’re accomplishing and how fortunate you are to be a part of this unbelievable inter-webbing of stories. You kind of are just so fortunate to be a part of it,” said Evans.

“I say, “Keep going. Let’s keep going. Let’s let the wave get bigger and bigger.” It’s not stopping. It’s not like they’re making bad movies. They’re making great movies… Especially the Russos, they ground them in such an authentic way. It’s real humans, real struggles, real conflict, good cinematic storytelling with, like, a streak of superhero flavor in it. So I say, keep going. If you can keep doing it, keep doing it,” said Evans.


“It’s amazing. It’s amazing that it’s happening. It’s unprecedented. I don’t know how you do it outside of the use of preexisting properties of the comic book world. And they’ve got a monopoly on it. They got it. They’re doing it. No one else can try and copy. You know what I mean? It’s really unbelievable to try and venture out into these uncharted waters and do it so well. It’s just really impressive,” said Evans.
