Out doing promotional rounds for the new indie legal drama “Puncture”, actor Chris Evans says the inevitable “Captain America” sequel will likely wait until 2014.
“They may wait until 2014 until they release the next Cap. Marvel has a lot of balls in the air, they aren’t going to cannibalize their films” the actor told The Playlist.
He also confirmed he’s signed for three “Captain America” entries and three “Avengers” films, so it’s unlikely his character will pop up, even in cameos, in other Marvel films – “Out of those six films, if I pop up in one of those [other films], it counts as part of the deal. So if they needed me in a third Cap, and I say, ‘Fuck you, give me $30 million,’ well… they want to avoid that.”
Marvel has already set aside May 16th 2014 and June 27th 2014 release dates for films, but hasn’t yet announced what they will be.
As for his much debated about new costume in “The Avengers” which fans have been vocal about? You can blame the design on Joss Whedon it seems. “The first one was a 1940s look, very utilitarian, something that would serve a purpose on the battlefield. But in ‘The Avengers,’ Joss just had a certain vision in his mind about what he wanted Cap to look like. That’s what he wanted to see. it’s so nice working on these movies and the director’s a fan. He’s the dude at Comic-Con that we’re terrified of pissing off. If Joss is happy, I’m happy.”
