Chris Evans Opens Up About His Decision To Extend His Contract With Marvel

Chris Evans Avengers

For a while, it seemed like Chris Evans would really call it quits from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He had mentioned before that after the first three Captain America movies and the two Avengers films that he’d be done. So what changed his mind?

Speaking with The Telegraph, the actor discussed the reasons behind his decision to stay with the MCU and renew his contract. That decision involved Avengers: Infinity War.

“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter. They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man – and couldn’t get them all into one movie.”

Evans also added that he stayed “because it made sense. It’s going to wrap everything up.” This way, the actor gets to be in the final Avengers film (currently untitled). It begs the question regarding how Marvel will handle the wrapping up of Captain America’s storyline. But I guess that’s going to be something we have to wait and see unfold.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and several other cast members across the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.

    He’s so totally gonna die in that second Avengers movie. I’ll be curious to see what they do with the mantle of Capt America when he is gone.

      I get the sense that the earth team is going to get rebooted.

      • Nathan_12thMan

        Define rebooted? New actors to play the same roles? I highly doubt that. I believe the Avengers roles are going to change and as some characters bow out, others will step up in their place.

        What do I mean? I think Dr. Strange and Captain Marvel could be the new leaders of the Avengers. I think Marvel could take that Capt America role in the group while the Capt. America mantle is picked up by another character (Winter Soldier? Falcon?). Basically they have established enough supporting characters with quality actors that they can step into those “main Avengers” leadership roles.

        • Joseph Chaisson

          I would gladly define the reboot. 1st Dr. Strange and Captain Marvel exist out side of the earth Characters. Much like GOTG exist on it own plane. The earth characters such as Iron Man and Captain America can be rebooted such as the earth 626 and various earths have been.
          In essence I am saying, instead of recasting characters to fill what specific actors have done and filled their obligations for, MS will simply reboot the universe as a different numbered one. Since GOTG, Captain Marvel, Dr. Strange, and Ant Man can exist in different time frames and do not necessarily have in habit the same universe as the original phase, they will not be infected.
          This theory does not explain Black Panther which does look spectacular. But they can always keep him.

          • Nathan_12thMan

            That’s never gonna happen. How in the world do you sell that complicated mess to the average movie goer? You can’t. Earth 626? Lol, they’re confused by X-Men’s timeline, let alone rebooting part of the MCU and not the other parts.

            All those characters are going to be together, on Earth in Infinity War 1 & 2. They will all exist together in the same dimension/universe.

            The MCU has two logical options that audiences will accept: recasting the roles or ending the characters stories (by killing or retiring) and then having either their mantle or their position in the MCU taken over by another character. For example, if Capt America dies you can either have someone take up that mantle or have Captain Marvel step into that role as the teams military leader.

    I am glad he wants to stay on
