When Chris Evans was first offered the role of Captain America, he hesitated before finally being persuaded to take it.
Now, after three Captain America movies and two Avengers movies, the star spangled hero says he can’t imagine hanging up the shield for good.
Speaking to Collider, Evans talked about the possibility of playing Captain America again and handing off the shield to another actor.
There is no re-upping yet. I was just saying in my last interview that it’s so funny thinking about how fast time has moved. We started this in 2010 and six years (snaps finger) has gone in a blink of an eye. In the beginning, it was so terrifying and now you’re almost scared to …I’m scared to walk away. I’m scared to not have one of these [Marvel movies] coming. These past six years there’s always been, ‘Next year we start that one.’ And it’s been wonderful, especially because the movies are so good. When you make good movies, who wants to stop doing that? So, I don’t know. We’ll see.
I know in the comic books that the shield gets passed off. And what you do know, more than anything else in this process — meeting fans, experiencing these junkets and people who love the character — the character is bigger than you and whatever the character needs, whatever Marvel needs for that arc, I’m willing to do. So if that is me passing it off, you pass it off. But if they want to make more, I’m ready.
