Chris Evans discusses moving on after ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers 4’

With the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, the contract is up with Chris Evans and his Captain America. Now Evans, speaking with USA Today, talks about the future with Marvel Studios and returning for another solo film or project.

“I’d be lying if I said [moving on] wouldn’t be hard for me. But the passing of time and the passing of torches is part of the experience. Nothing lasts forever,” he said.

Evans has previously stated he’s ready to move on, talked about directing, but wavers a bit here.

 

“There’s a beauty in that departure, even if it can be sad at times,” the Winter Soldier star tells the USA Today.

“It’s also joyful. I’ve had a great run. Superheroes are reinventable entities, like Batman or even James Bond. These movies find new incarnations and new ways to tell the story. I am all for it. However they want to proceed after Avengers 4, it’s really up to them. I walk away with no regrets and endlessly thankful.”

“Downey is far closer to reaching that point where he may walk away. And I don’t know how you replace Downey as Tony Stark,” says Evans. “I don’t know who else can touch that.”

“When you’re creeping on 36, working out is a little bit harder. Not impossible, but it just gets a little bit more daunting,” says Evans, who laughs about how he’ll look post-Captain America. “I’m just going to get fat. Potato chips, ice cream before bed. It’s like, ‘Guess what, everyone!’ ”

“Bless those people. My mother will be leading that fan base,” sayid Evans while promoting his critically well-received role in Gifted which opens nationwide April 12. He plays the embattled guardian of a genius niece.

Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters May 4, 2018.

Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and is being written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The fourth Avengers movie will have a different subtitle from Infinity War, but with the third movie still in pre-production it is not even in need of a working title. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently said that the two movies will each feature their own separate plots and won’t necessarily be two parts of one story, so it would make sense for the as-yet untitled Avengers sequel to function as a separate production in terms of its working title.
