Chris says his contract is over for 'Captain America'
Last year, Evans mentioned that he planned to retire from acting once his contract finished so he can focus on directing. In a recent interview with Gay Times Magazine, however, he suggests he’s amenable to staying in the MCU.
Actor Chris Evans says his contract with Marvel Studios will be over once he is done filming for Avengers 4.
The 35-year-old has a deal with Marvel Studios to play Steve Rogers and his heroic alter ego in two more movies, which will be the two Avengers sequels. But he is free to walk away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe if he wishes or if Marvel no longer wants him, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
In an appearance on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' on Monday, Evans said, "My contract is up. I have 'Avengers' 3 and 4, we do 'Avengers 3' now and 4 is the latter part of the year, then after that, that is the end of my contract... "They've been filming since February, I don't start until May, there are so many people involved."
