Comic book movies are a no-brainer for actors now, but before Marvel hit it big with their "Phase One" films, superhero films were a gamble, and actor Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, and once played Johnny Storm in two Fantastic Four films. During an interview with Collider, Evans talked about his possible future with Marvel, after his contract ends when Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & 2 come out in 2018 and 2019.

“Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me. I’ve never had such a relationship where you have such—I mean look at my resume, I’m used to being on set being like, ‘Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?’ Marvel just can’t stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor.”

Evans went on to talk about jumping on to originally become Captain America.

“It’s so mind-boggling that I was so tentative in the beginning to jump onboard. What an asshole I would be if I hadn’t done this. I mean can you imagine? Kicking myself—I’d never forgive myself!”

Evans is in full support of what Marvel has been doing with its cinematic universe and it's pretty obvious that he'd love to continue a working relationship with the company. The next film Evans will appear in is Captain America: Civil War which hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
