Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, the interwebs were alit with numerous Chris Evans headlines:
It’s safe to say the interview covers a lot of ground. The profile explored Chris Evans’ thoughts on relationships to fearlessly voicing his political beliefs on Twitter to why he even passed on playing Captain America before finally accepting the part.
Chris Evans Is Not Retiring
When the interview turned to the reports that he’s retiring from acting, Evans is quick to set the record straight.
I never said the word ‘retire’. It’s a really obnoxious notion for an actor to say they’re going to retire — it’s not something you retire from.”
Now that that’s finally settled, we can get to the matter that is close at hand: Avengers: Endgame.
Soooo… What’s Gonna Happen In Endgame?
When asked about how the next Avengers film ends, he’s evasive as all Marvel stars are taught to be. “It’s a good one. It’s a real good one. I saw, like, the first hour of it.”
He’s then asked if he watched up until the point where Cap dies, Evans laughs it off and says, “Right, exactly. After I die by Tony’s hand, I just said, You know what? I can’t watch this.”
He’s obviously joking but does go on to say, “I can’t believe they even cut together a trailer because so much of it is a visual spoiler. You’ll see. A lot of the characters have-.” He stops himself before he incurs the wrath of the powers that be.
“It’s Hard. Seeing My Own Death.”
He goes on to talk about how good Endgame promises to be. “Man, this one’s really good. I choked up like three times.”
When asked if he got choked up because Cap dies, Evans sidesteps with sarcasm and charm, “Right. It’s hard. Seeing my own death. It’s going to be a long movie, that’s for sure. The first edit clocked in over three hours. My funeral’s like an hour.”
