Chris Evans: "Scared to Walk Away" From Captain America But Ready To Pass The Shield

Captain America actor Chris Evans confirmed before that his current contract includes Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and Part 2, so you can expect him to appear in those films, but after that, his contract would need to be re-negotiated. During an interview with Collider, Evans gives an update about whether or not Marvel Studios added more films to the contract and whether he'd pass the Cap's shield to another actor:

"There's no re-upping yet. It is so funny thinking about how fast time has moved. We started this in 2010, and six years is gone in the blink of an eye. In the beginning it was so terrifying, and now you're almost scared…I'm scared to walk away. I'm scared to not have one of these coming. For the past six, theres always been ‘next year, we start that one,' and it's been wonderful. Especially because the movies are so good. When you make good movies, who wants to stop doing that? So, I don't know. We'll see.
I know in the comic books that the shield gets passed off, and what you do know more than anything else in this process — meeting fans, experiencing junkets, and people who love the character — the character is bigger than you. And whatever the character needs, whatever Marvel needs for that arc, I'm willing to do. So if that is me passing it off, you pass it off. But if they want to make more, I'm ready."

That's good to know that he's putting the interests of the character more than his own, which is what Steve Rogers himself would do. It would be sad to see him pass the shield, but if he ever does for Phase 4, I hope that it will just be temporary.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 5, 2016.
