With Ike Perlmutter out of the way, it’s possible the original cast of the Avengers could be on board with Marvel Studios for the long haul.
Evans has said at various times he might want to be done with acting and just focus on directing, but at the same time has stated he may want to stick with Marvel. Now Evans says “if Marvel wants me, they got me.”
“I’ve never had such a relationship where… I mean look at my resume. I’m used to being on set being ‘is this movie going to be terrible?’ [laughs] It’s Marvel… They can’t stop making great movies. They just do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers, and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor. It’s so mind boggling that I was tentative in the beginning to jump on board. What an asshole I would be if I hadn’t done this. I mean, can you imagine? I’m kicking myself. I would never forgive myself… I mean it’s just the best.”
“Captain America: Civil War” has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
