​Chris Evans Really Is Done With Captain America

Actor Chris Evans has confirmed he won't be reprising his role as Marvel superhero Captain America, having said in a new interview that he's had a 'great run' and believes it would be 'risky' to turn back ending on such a high note.

Evans, 38, appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, where he was quizzed about his time as Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Norton asked Evans - who turned in via video link - if it really is the end for his take on Captain America, to which the star responded: "Yes, I think it is.

"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."

Evans appears to have been mulling this one over for some time, having previously spoken about his reluctance to return to the character after hinting in a tweet back in 2018 that the fourth Avengers film would be his last.

He went on to divulge a little more on the matter in an episode of Variety's 'Actors on Actors' interview series last year, when he sat down with Marvel co-star Scarlett Johansson.

On the potential of playing Steve Rogers again, Evans said: "You never say never. I love the character. I don't know.

"It's not a hard no, but it's not an eager yes either.

"There are other things that I'm working on right now. I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey.

"If you're going to revisit it, it can't be a cash grab. It can't be just because the audience wants to be excited."

Damn.
