Chris Evans talks Marvel contract, stuck in the role of Cap, injury during filming

Chris Evans returns as Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War, but confessed in an interview during the Jimmy Kimmel Live show that he rejected the role several times.

He explained that he felt reluctant to take on a long-term movie contract. “I was scared because at first it was a nine-picture contract, and there are parts of me that have a little bit of social anxiety with this industry,” Evans said.

He also said that he initially found it “scary” to be faced with the possibility of being stuck in the project even if “you’re not responding well” to the role.

Evans made the revelation that he was hurt during production. The comment was made during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the MTV Movie Awards’ red carpet event held Sunday.

He confessed that he “messed up his arm” doing a stunt that involved a fake helicopter. “It was drifting beyond the ability of control. I tweaked a little something. To this day, I’m still messed up,” Evans admitted.

Joining Evans is the all-star cast from previous films and plenty of newcomers: Robert Downey Jr, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Frank Grillo, Daniel Bruhl, Martin Freeman, William Hurt, Emily VanCamp, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd and Tom Holland.

Captain America: Civil War arrives in theaters on May 6, 2016.
