Chris Evans isn’t in a hurry to quit as Captain America just yet…

September 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

There’s been a lot of speculation recently that Chris Evans may no longer want to play Steve Rogers/Captain America after his contract is up (here), with Evans himself talking about only starring in movies he’s directing after his time is up at Marvel.

But the actor himself, talking to MTV, is keen to talk about Captain America 3 AND to perhaps put to bed those ‘he’s leaving’ rumours: “It’s [Captain America 3] this giant web of plot, where everything is connected to everything else… that’s the beautiful thing and especially for the fanboys who understand these plotlines. With Cap 3, we’re going to continue this excitement.”

He also talked about the possibility of him leading another team of heroes apart from the Avengers: “What do I think about this, what can I say about this? You wanna give something!

“Marvel doesn’t disappoint. Whatever you’re hoping for, you’re probably going to get.” 

Finally, on the rumours that he’s leaving, he said: “Who’s handing off the shield? Don’t take my job from me prematurely dude!

“I’m sure it’ll happen at some point, all good things have to come to an end. But I’m really happy playing the character.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
