Chris Evans has admitted that he already misses playing Steve Rogers and Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The 39-year-old actor made this admission during his recent interview with Backstage. But before people start speculating about Evans’ potential return to the MCU, he quickly followed it up by saying he is currently enjoying the creative freedom he now has at his disposal
‘I absolutely loved my time with Marvel; I already miss it, but there’s no denying that it is very exciting to just have complete freedom to pursue whatever my creative appetite wants.”
Evans’ above remarks were preceded by his candidness about taking on the hugely popular superhero all the way back in 2010, as he admitted that he felt an incredible amount of pressure trying to match fans’ expectations.
“There was this enormous expectation that these people already had in their minds, this idea of who this character was, and you have to respect that. Audiences are part of what will make [these films] work, and I owe that group my understanding of what they see.”
“At a certain point, you do have to say, ‘OK, I have to approach this the way I would anything else,’ and connect to it on a personal level without every single day being preoccupied with how it’s going to be perceived.”
"It was a great run and we went out on such a high note that it would be risky to revisit it in my opinion. It was such a good experience and I think it's better left that way."
