Following work on Captain America: The Winter Solider, the actor said he might retire from acting at the end of his Marvel contract and focus on directing. While talking with Collider about his directorial debut, Before We Go, Evans’s clarified his position. “If Marvel wants me they got me,” he said. “I’ve never had such a relationship where you have such — I mean look at my resume, I’m used to being on set being like, ‘Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?’ Marvel just can’t stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor.”
Evans’ contract expires after the two-part Avengers sequel, Infinity War, but it remains to be seen if he will renew his contract. With the change of authority at Marvel Studios, a very lucrative deal could be arranged for the actor. Of course, rule one of negotiation is never to let the other side know you’re excited.
Also, this makes me wonder about the possibility of legacy. When Evans finally decides to hang up the shield, will Marvel recast Steve Rogers or will Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson — or Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky — take his place as Captain America?
