What does the future hold for Chris Evans and the Marvel Cinematic Universe?If the rumors are true, the actor has already Ready to be Captain America again for over a year. He himself denied this, Marvel Studios did not respond to the rumors, but in a new interview man behind shield Warm up to the more unorthodox throwback MCU.
Back in 2005, a few years before the Marvel Cinematic Universe really took off, Evans played Johnny Storm, a member of the Fantastic Four. Fantastic Four Movie. He then reprised the role in the 2007 sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Again, it predates the current MCU.However, with Phase 4 in full swing, the multiverse opens up endless possibilities, and we’ve seen some actors return to their pre-MCU roles (such as Patrick Stewart as Professor X) Doctor Strange and the Mad Multiverse and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man Spider-Man: Nowhere to Go) So Evans was asked not to return as captain, but as Johnny.
“Look, I’m going to like it. I’m going to like it,” Evans Speak to MTV News“It’s actually easier for me than coming back as captain. You know what I mean? Hats are so precious to me. You know, I hardly want to spoil what an experience that was. But Johnny Storm, I don’t think he really got his day. That was before Marvel really got a foothold. So, I love the character, you know, who knows?”
As interesting as the idea sounds, there are two big problems.one, there is one Fantastic Four The movie is already in production, with two more, and no one has asked Evans about it. “Gosh, isn’t that great?” Evans added. “No, no one ever came to me. I mean, I don’t look exactly the same anymore. That was 15, almost 20 years ago. Gosh, I’m old. But I really like that character , but I think… aren’t they doing something with the Fantastic Four right now?” Here’s the full interview, the quote above is about 8 minutes.
Evans is experienced in answering these questions after playing Captain America in several films and over the years. That said, the fact that he’s so open to the possibility all but proves that it will never happen.It seems more plausible that we see him as Captain America returning all the Infinity Stones, or in some capacity in the story of the new captain america, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie). Especially since he’s not talking about those things. But hey, why not have both?
Evans is currently available at Pixar light years. We’ll see him next on Netflix grey mandirected by him Avengers: Endgame Director, Russos Brothers.
