Captain America Star Chris Evans Thinking Of Taking A Break From Acting

Captain America star Chris Evans has revealed a desire to take a break from acting after his contract with Marvel expires.


Just as Captain America: The Winter Soldier is about to hit the movie theaters, film star Chris Evans has revealed a desire to take a break from acting after his contract with Marvel expires.

It is believed that the last film in his contract will be Avengers: Age of Ultron, but no specific details have been released.

In an interview with Glamour magazine Evans said: “I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting. With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic.”

Currently he has moved to new different projects. Evans is in post-production on his directorial début, indie drama 1:30 Train. The Captain America star is very excited about his recent switch from screen to loud hailer, stating: “This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision,” he said. “If I hadn’t done it, I’d be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move.”

With his first début three years ago as Captain America, Chris Evans expresses his thoughts about the hero: “He doesn’t have demons,” he reiterated in Glamour. “He’s not Batman, he doesn’t struggle with inner turmoil. The nature of this character is that he puts himself last and helps the common good. So he could easily slip into a world of boredom. The blessing and curse of Captain America is that he doesn’t have that fancy an ability. He doesn’t live in another world, or turn green. He doesn’t have bells and whistles, he doesn’t shoot missiles. He punches and kicks.”

His latest film Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be out on March 26.
