Chris Evans is currently doing well with Marvel, representing one of the company’s most important and iconic characters, Captain America, in their movies. However, it seems like the actor would like to try something new once his six-film Marvel contract expires.
According to a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Chris Evans will be going on a temporary acting break once the contract expires, choosing to focus instead on his directorial debut on 1:30 Train.
“I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting,” he told Glamour.
“This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision. If I hadn’t done it, I’d be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move.”
“With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic.”
