Chris Evans Willing To Extend His Captain America Contract With Marvel

Chris Evans' relationship with Marvel Studios has been viewed as a tenuous one. He was reluctant to sign up for the role of Captain Americaat first, and he's been more vocal than his co-stars about looking forward to having more time for other projects when his contract is up.

However, Evans tells Collider that, if Marvel wants him to stick around, all the studio has to do is ask:

"Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me. I've never had such a relationship where you have such—I mean look at my resume, I'm used to being on set being like, 'Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?' Marvel just can't stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. Its wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it's like a playground as an actor."

Short version: Captain America is a big upgrade from Human Torch.

As to Evans' initial hesitation about joining the Marvel Universe, he seems pretty confident that he ended up making the right decision:

"It's so mind-boggling that I was so tentative in the beginning to jump onboard. What an asshole I would be if I hadn't done this. I mean can you imagine? Kicking myself—I'd never forgive myself!"

In another recent interview, Evans said that he was "terrified" thinking about being finished with Captain America. Assuming Marvel Studios doesn't have other plans for the star-spangled suit and shield, maybe a contract extension is in Evans' future.
