We already know that Chris Evans is the perfect Captain America. But could he possibly pursue a political career in the future? Evans has just addressed the possibility and it looks like he is open to the idea of running for office.

Evans has always been outspoken about his political views. This was proven when he helped found A Starting Point, a "video-based civic-engagement platform." Naturally, this has led to Evans being invited to the Web Summit technology conference where he was asked if he would consider running for a political office.

"Seems like a lot of work," Evans said. "I don't know. Hopefully, it doesn't get to the point where I feel the need to."

The Avengers: Endgame star continued by adding that he has learned a lot from political figures.

"You know, when we were in D.C., we'd always talk to the elected officials. They all said that the good job is mayor. The good job to have in politics was mayor. That seemed to be the universal consensus," Evans stated.

But would he actually go for it? Interestingly, Evans didn't decline immediately.

"You never say never," he said. "But you know, the truth is -- and this isn't even trying to be fake humble -- I don't know enough. I can't even think of an office that I would disrespect enough to assume I can waltz in and do it, so I'd have to put myself through some sort of class first. But right now, I don't know think I have the tools. "

It may be too early for Evans to think about getting into politics. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if he actually considers it as his next move.

Do you think Evans has what it takes to get into politics? Sound off in the comments below.
