Chris Evans Says He Wants to Quit Acting

1 minute read

If Captain America had a cape, Marvel star Chris Evans would be ready to hang it up. Evans told Variety that he would be ready to completely retire from acting — if only his contract would let him.

The 32-year-old actor signed a six-movie deal with Marvel — after some encouragement from Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. Evans will have to don the patriotic latex for three more films, which he thinks will wrap up in 2017.

“If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” Evans said. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.”
