Once his contract is up and he hangs up his “Captain America” helmet, actor Chris Evans says he plans to take a break from acting.
Speaking with British magazine Glamour, Evans reveals he has become more interested in directing projects instead, such as his upcoming debut film “1:30 Train”:
“With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic. This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision.”
Evans also spoke about his initial hesitancy to play Steve Rogers in the Marvel films:
“If I hadn’t done it, I’d be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move… He doesn’t have demons. He’s not Batman, he doesn’t struggle with inner turmoil.
The nature of this character is that he puts himself last and helps the common good. So he could easily slip into a world of boredom…The blessing and curse of Captain America is that he doesn’t have that fancy an ability. He doesn’t live in another world, or turn green. He doesn’t have bells and whistles, he doesn’t shoot missiles. He punches and kicks.”
