Convincing Chris Evans to play Captain America wasn’t easy for Marvel. But the actor finally agreed and give a superlative performance as Steve Rogers. It has been almost 10 years since he joined MCU. Fans can’t imagine anyone else playing the superhero character. Sadly, with Avengers: Endgame, Evans’ journey with MCU ended.
Since he left Marvel, there have been several reports that he might return. It was only a few days ago, Chris put a full stop to all the speculations. The Captain America actor said that he has no plans to return to MCU. But just because he isn’t going to play Cap anymore doesn’t mean he won’t talk about Marvel. His latest statement and heaps of praises for them proves he misses working with them.
Recently, in Variety’s Actors on Actors conversation, Chris Evans and Paul Rudd talked about MCU and more. About playing Captain America, Chris said that it was intimidating at first as everyone had expectations. The Gifted actor then went on to praising Marvel wholeheartedly. “You know what it’s like working at Marvel. They make you feel so comfortable. It feels like such a group effort. It’s a real landscape of competing ideas and the best idea wins, and that’s how they end up with so many good movies. Very quickly you kind of put down your fear and recline a little bit and recognize that you’re in good hands,” said the Snowpiercer actor.
Paul Rudd agreed with Chris Evans. About playing Ant-Man for Marvel and his experience, the FRIENDS actor said, “There’s pressure at every single movie you’re making in the Marvel world. You don’t want to be the weak link. A character like Ant-Man, yeah, very few people knew. They’d say, ‘Well, what does Ant-Man do?’ And I’d say, ‘He can shrink to the size of an ant, but he also retains strength, and he can control ants and talk to ants.”
The way Chris is talking passionately about Marvel proves he indeed had a time of life working with them. Just like fans will miss him as Captain America, it seems Chris Evans will miss the same. But then, he’s not a part of the universe anymore. Now, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon will take the mantle ahead and we can’t wait to see what he does with the shield.
