Chris Evans Talks Avengers 2 Rumors and Passing the Shield
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier behind him, Chris Evans still has Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America 3 left to go, along with one last as yet undisclosed movie on his Marvel contract. In the midst of his run as Steve Rogers, the actor also managed to make his directorial debut with Before We Go, which he has brought to the Toronto International Film Festival. There, MTV caught up with him to chat about his future as Captain America and his thoughts on passing the Shield.
The actor isn't allowed to say much, even though Avengers: Age of Ultron has wrapped. We won't know any more about the plot until we get closer to the release date. But Chris Evans did have this to offer, teasing the storyline behind Captain America 3 as well:
"That's the beauty of the Marvel (Cinematic) Universe... It's this giant web of plot, where everything is connected to everything else whether it's Thor, Iron Man or Avengers, everything is kind of involved. So that's the beautiful thing and especially for the fanboys who understand these plotlines. Every time a new film is announced, there is this surge of excitement to where they are gonna go. I think with Cap 3, we're going to continue this excitement."
"What do I think about this, what can I say about this?You wanna give something! Marvel doesn't disappoint. Whatever you're hoping for, you're probably going to get."
Then the most prominent question about Captain America 3 came up. Will Steve be passing on the shield?
"Who's handing off the shield? Don't take my job from me prematurely dude. I'm sure it'll happen at some point, all good things have to come to an end. But I'm really happy playing the character."
