The return of Captain America? Chris Evans is not for the job and believes that “it would be annoying” for the future of the Marvel Universe.
The actor who gave life to Captain America, Chris Evansjoined to D23 Inside Disney Podcast. On the show, she shared her deep thoughts on a return to Marvel Cinematic Universe. Would it be possible? Will it ever happen? Will we see him again as Steve Rogers?
Although there have been rumors of Captain America’s return, Chris Evans has accepted the fact that the role now belongs to Anthony Mackie. The actor has praised the generational change of sam wilson in the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He remains cautious about resuming his role as Liberty Sentinel in Marvel Studios. He thinks it would be annoying if he returned to action.
“I don’t think he’s going to come back as Captain America,” Chris Evans said on the podcast. “It was a really incredible journey and I adore the character. People appreciate me for it. Back to the role… Honestly, that role isn’t even mine anymore. The role belongs to Anthony Mackie. Even if they did a different incarnation, not as Sentinel of Liberty, but as Steve Rogers, even that would feel weird. I would be very cautious because I love that chapter of my professional, personal life. I love what those movies accomplished and revisiting it… Potentially extending that legacy would be weird and annoying if it didn’t work. Therefore, it requires an almost perfect recipe. They may not even contemplate it.”
The resemblance between Steve Rogers and Buzz Lightyear
Chris Evans also compared his roles as Captain America and buzz lightyear. He admitted that both characters possess the qualities of a good leader. He sees the Disney Pixar toy as someone who probably knew his destiny as a leader from a young age, while Steve Rogers had to grow up, evolve and figure out his place in the world.
“Certainly, they’re both leaders,” explained Chris Evans. “Both are determined and selfless, honest and loyal to their friends. Buzz Lightyear strikes me as someone who probably knew this about himself very early in life. I picture Buzz as a hall monitor, as a boy scout, as a class president. He has always had a lot of confidence in his choices. Captain America probably took a little longer to understand his role in life and how to fulfill what he had inside of him. Perhaps he was more shy, more humble, he had more uncertainty ».
