Playing Chris Evans on Saying Goodbye to Marvel: ‘It’s Almost Terrifying to Think About’

Don’t leave us, Captain America!

Chris Evans and (most of) the Avengers cast wrapped filming on Captain America: Civil War late last month, marking Evans' fifth film in his six-picture contract with Marvel Studios.

In an interview with ETonline, the 34-year-old actor explains why having another Marvel movie in the books is somewhat bittersweet.

“It’s almost terrifying to think about these being done,” says Evans. “It always feels so good to kind of wrap and just say, ‘Alright, one more down.’ But it's also kind of like high school in a sense. You keep looking to when you're going to be done, and we're almost done now, and you're not quite ready for it to be over.”

When his contract ends, Evans says he will turn his focus to directing. His directorial debut, Before We Go, hits theaters Sept. 4.

“I love acting and I'll always love acting. It's my first love," insists Evans. "But I really enjoy [directing]. I'm kind of excited to take the knowledge I acquired during this process and apply it to the next one.”

In addition to suiting up as Cap, Evans also played Johnny Storm/Human Torch in 2005’s Fantastic Four. Here are five other celebrities who played superheroes twice:
