Chris Evans has confirmed that he's signed on for six Marvel films as Captain America, and that he has three remaining.

Evans cleared up speculation about his contract with Glamour Magazine while promoting 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'. He also confirmed that his cameo in 'Thor: The Dark World' last year won't count towards the total.

"I have a six-movie contract with Marvel and I absolutely plan on fulfilling them," he said. Those remaining movies will be 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', the recently announced 'Captain America 3' and 'Avengers 3'.

The 32-year-old actor also spoke about his options following the end of his contract - speculating that he might continue directing, take a break from acting, or continue as Cap while also directing in between shoots.

"This is without a doubt the biggest blessing in my life," he continued, talking about the Cap role. "Marvel has literally changed the game for me, and they make great movies."

"I did direct last year [comedy '1:30 Train', in which he stars alongside Alice Eve] and it was a really fantastic experience, I really enjoyed it. So I'm certainly looking to do that a bit more."

"So when it comes to exploring other acting jobs I may not be as proactive in trying to find those, I may kind of stick with my Marvel universe in terms of getting in front of the camera, and then getting behind the camera outside of it."

Certainly sounds like a solid plan to us. Evans is a great Captain America, and the character is still finding his feet - at least compared to the likes of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, who have been around longer - so seeing Evans evolve and age with the character would be great and interesting to see.

Would you want Evans to continue in the role beyond 'Avengers 3'? Let us know in the comments below.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is out 28 March.
