While promoting Pixar’s Lightyear film, Chris Evans was asked if he would ever return to the role of Captain America.
Evans spoke to ComicBook exclusively at a press event for Lightyear. The discussion about the return as Captain America has been shared in the tweet below from the Phase Zero podcast’s account.
When asked about the possibility of more live-action stories in which he plays Cap. Evans responds by saying:
“I don’t want to disappoint anybody, but I just don’t…” Evans began to say, hemming and hawing as he tried to explain. “To revisit it,” he said with a wince, “It would be a tall order.”
As he considered the question, it was clear that Evans still had affection for the character. “It was such a good run, and I am so happy with it, and it’s so precious to me,” Evans said, searching for the right words. “It would have to be perfect,” he stated, punctuating his declaration with a fluttering hand gesture.
Evans first appeared as the Star-Spangled Avenger in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger alongside Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Hugo Weaving. He would go on to reprise the role of Captain America for eight other feature-films in the MCU over the course of 8 years.
Even though it seems like the odds are slim, it would be great for Marvel fans if the right project came along to entice Chris Evans to return to the role.
