Chris Evans Explains Why He Extended His Marvel Contract

Chris Evans gave an interview recently where he explained why he extended his six-film long contract with Marvel. You'll never believe it or some other clickbait tag.

"I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter. They said they had so many other characters to fit in – Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man – and couldn't get them all into one movie. [I agreed] because it made sense. It's going to wrap everything up."

There you go. He did it to complete the story. He probably also received a nice payday as well. Evans also touched on his fear of signing a six-film deal.

"One of my biggest fears was that the movies were going to be good," he says, stroking a beard so keenly edged it might have been trimmed with a laser alignment tool. "Because if things worked out, I'd have to do all six of them. And at the time, that was the most terrifying aspect of it. That it was going to be so dominating, all-encompassing."

Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, and Anthony Mackie. It is set to be released on May 4, 2018.
