Chris Evans Reveals Why He Signed on for The Avengers 4

'They said they had so many other characters to fit in - Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man - and couldn't get them all into one movie.

Though Evans has expressed interest over the past six years in moving on from Cap and the Avengers team to focus on smaller projects and, even, directing gigs, it seems he's willing to be pulled back in one more time for the sake of storytelling. Which could mean any number of different things for the character, from Captain America kicking the bucket, to him passing the mantle on to another hero.

Among them has been Chris Evans, who has been signed for six films. Talking to The Telegraph, Evans explains. "That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing".

In a lengthy interview with the UK's Telegraph for the premiere of Gifted (which was released in the US this past April but doesn't open in the United Kingdom until June 16), Chris Evans reveals the reason why he signed another contract to play Captain America again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ultimately, the actor came to terms with Marvel's extensive contract and took up the hero's iconic shield.

While he may or may not be quitting acting altogether, his days as Captain America are numbered. Marvel movies are a marathon to make, and they require a lot of time and commitment from their stars.

When we think of big Hollywood stars like Chris Evans, we imagine the luxurious, glamorous lives they must lead.

Otherwise, Evans' second-to-final time out as Captain America, Avengers: Infinity War, premieres in theaters on May 4, 2018. The expansive confirmed cast includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released in United Kingdom cinemas on April 27, 2018, while Avengers 4 will follow on April 26, 2019.
