Chris Evans clarifies Marvel future

Chris Evans set tongues wagging recently by suggesting he might take a break from acting, leading to rumours that the star was considering bailing on the rest of his Marvel contract.

However, Evans has taken the time to clarify his intentions, confirming that he has two Marvel films left on his deal after Avengers: Age Of Ultron , and has every intention of seeing them through.

“Oh yeah, this was a big thing!” exclaims Evans. “I gotta watch what I say. I will absolutely clarify. I have a six-movie contract with Marvel and I absolutely plan on fulfilling them.”

“This is without a doubt the biggest blessing in my life. Marvel has literally changed the game for me, and they make great movies. I did direct last year and it was a really fantastic experience, I really enjoyed it.”

“I’m certainly looking to do that a bit more, so when it comes to exploring other acting jobs, I may not be as proactive in trying to find those. I may kind of stick with my Marvel universe in terms of getting in front of the camera, and then getting behind the camera outside of it.”

Nothing to panic about then! Evans’ next outing is Captain America: The Winter Soldier , which opens in the UK on 28 March 2014.
