It ain’t easy being Captain America. Chris Evans tells Variety he wants to quit acting as soon as his Marvel contract is up.
“If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he said, his publicist probably nervously-laughing by his side.
“I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.”
Evans spilled the beans while promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the second entry in a trilogy he is “contractually obligated to do.”
He must also appear in two more Marvel movies, one of which will be 2015’s Avengers sequel Age of Ultron.
So, start saying your goodbyes.
Meanwhile, John Krasinski, start hitting that gym. The role you were once passed over for might soon be back in your grasp.
