Chris Evans Breaks Silence on Potential Captain America Return
With the press run for his upcoming Pixar debut in the form of Lightyear, Marvel legend Chris Evans breaks his silence on his potential Captain America return.
There are few performers in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that have left an indelible mark as much as the charismatic and incredibly endearing Chris Evans.
Taking on the shield and the mantle of Steve Rogers at the earliest points of the MCU’s history, Evans is up there with iconic performers such as Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth as some of the most important and defining actors in the early day of the Marvel Universe.
Evans played the character of Steve Rogers brilliantly over the decade-plus that he carried the role; bringing Rogers to life in a way that few thought possible, and bringing with him a complexity that was nearly flawless in its execution throughout this trilogy, and a host of Avengers films.
Playing the character for as long as he did, fans became immensely attached, with Evans firmly being placed in the pantheon of Marvel greats; making it all the more difficult for fans to accept when the character’s journey in the MCU came to an end.
In a recent interview surrounding his newest Pixar film, Lightyear, Chris Evans finally broke his silence on a potential Captain America return.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Evans was asked about his return, to which he stated, “That seems to be something people would like to see, I don’t want to disappoint anybody but it thought to…It was such a good run and I’m so happy with it, It’s so precious to me.”
Evans continues, “It would have to be perfect. It just would be scary to rattle something that is again, so, so dear to me. That role means so much to me. So, to revisit it, it would be a tall order.”
Although we would be ecstatic to see Evans once again pick up the shield, we do also want time to see Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson embrace the character of Captain America; as Sam’s version of the hero is one of our favorite interpretations that’s been put on a comic page.
