Chris Evans explains why he's not afraid to speak freely about politics

We're allowed to disagree.
In the interview, Evans reflects on Donald Trump's presidency, saying he feels "rage" and "fury".
Chris Evans only signed a six film contract with Marvel when he first agreed to star in "Captain America: The First Avenger", negotiating it down from the original offer of nine.
Now, it seems, we've just had confirmation: #ChrisEvans will indeed be bowing out as Captain America in the aftermath of Infinity War.
Chris Evans is a very good actor who has also proven himself quite intelligent and politically aware. "If I state my case and people don't want to go see my movies as a result, I'm okay with that". "I know I'm going to L.A.in August", he tells the magazine of that period in his life.
"People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame", he said. "They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry". That's because he has to spend five months on its production, as well as several months beforehand getting in shape, then a couple more months promoting the film, while there's also reshoots and whatnot to contend with, too.
Evans, who recently put former KKK leader David Duke in his place during a Twitter back-and-forth, said Trump's popularity came from the real estate mogul pointing fingers at other's frustrations. Hear someone say that Washington sucks.
It's highly unlikely that they'll attempt to cast a new Captain America in the same role, but it's possible that someone will take up the mantle - say, Anthony Mackie's character, Falcon - instead.
In any event, Evans backing away from the MCU isn't much of a surprise as both he and Robert Downey, Jr. have been open about how they're keen to try different things than continue on playing Captain America and Iron Man respectively. He is speaking as Chris Evans.
"It's time for calm". Because not everyone who voted for Trump is going to be some terrible bigot.
In a piece for Esquire, writer Maximillian Potter did not quote the star as saying he is intent on quitting as planned, but certainly alluded heavily towards it.
"There are a lot of people in that middle; those are the people you can't lose your credibility with", he told Esquire.
