Chris Evans recently revealed why he decided to extend his contract with Marvel through Avengers 4. In the same interview with The Telegraph, Evans also opened up about one of his biggest fears after signing on to do Captain America: The First Avenger.
“One of my biggest fears was that the movies were going to be good. Because if things worked out, I’d have to do all six of them. And at the time, that was the most terrifying aspect of it. That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing.”
It’s interesting to note that success was a fear factor. Evans is known to have anxiety when it comes to fame and being in the public eye. It might be surprising that anyone would be afraid of success, but just as many are afraid of failure, having success can also be a scary thing because in this case, it involved commitment.
Chris Evans has certainly embraced the Marvel films and his Captain America character. Five films later, it’s clear that Evans has found his groove when it comes to playing Steve Rogers. Now that the actor is signed on through Avengers 4, it’ll probably wrap up his story and the films will help to open up the doors for other new characters to take center stage.
Evans will next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War, which will be in theaters May 4, 2018.
