Chris Evans Is Moving on From Marvel and Here’s How

After making his first appearance as Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the film Captain America: First Avenger in 2011, Chris Evans appeared to put the shield down for good with the epic Avengers: Endgame, the 22nd film in the MCU and his ninth. And just like the few other Avenger actors who have met the end of their MCU road, he prepares to chart a new path outside the steamroller that brought his career to valiant heights.

Last fall, he made his first stab at reinvention with the clever Knives Out director Rian Johnson. In the star-studded hit film, Evans took on the role of Ransom Drysdale, the nephew of (and suspect in the murder of) recently deceased Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), a spoiled trust fun kid.

Of Johnson’s script in the film’s production notes which was released by Lionsgate, Evans shared that it was one of the scripts that anyone burns through. He added that he usually plays magnanimous leaders and good guys, so it was a fun opportunity for him to play someone who is just out for his self.

Regarding the casting of the actor, Johnson said that it was fun in the wake of Evans’ Marvel arc to experiment with how the audience perceives him, for they will get to see more of his range and how great his acting skills are.

On the experience of filming the series, the actor told Esquire in their April/May 2020 issue that it felt like he had a regular nine-to-five job. He added that there are a lot of times that he has a bit of a nomadic lifestyle as an actor, and that he lives out of suitcases and cities he’s not familiar with. He also shared that doing Jacob made him feel like he was home but still doing what he loves – and that for him is incredibly comforting.

As for whether he might ever pick up Cap’s shield along the road, Evans isn’t ruling anything out. He told Johansson that it’s not a hard no, but not an eager yes either, that he thinks Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing and that they did a really good job for letting him complete his journey. He added that if anyone’s going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash-grab, and it can’t be just because the audience wants to be thrilled – for there are a lot of things that would have to come together.

Steve did get his happy ending after all, and the actor is hesitant to undo all the work it took to get there.

Everyone would just have to settle for watching Evans spread his wings and go wherever the wind takes him, instead. That’s more than good enough to be honest, right?

Defending Jacob premieres on Friday, April 24 on Apple TV+.

As reported earlier, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian were back together on KUWTK.
