How Chris Evans May Continue Working In The MCU Beyond Avengers 4

Thanks to his role in Avengers: Endgame, Evans will have fulfilled the current requirements of his contract with Marvel Studios. He’s made it clear before that as much as he loves playing Captain America and being involved with this universe, he also has other interests and roles to play. One of his points of interest over the last few years has been directing. He made his directorial debut in Before We Go, a romantic drama that he also starred in with Alice Eve. Evans hasn’t directed anything since then and the MCU could allow him to do so.

According to a new rumor from entertainment journalist Jim Hill, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has offered Evans the chance to direct episodes on one of their upcoming live-action TV series that will land on Disney+, Disney’s streaming service. This rumor is unverified and should be taken with a grain of salt, but if true, would make a lot of sense for all parties involved.

Even though Evans may be ready to hang up Captain America’s shield, staying involved with the MCU in some capacity wouldn’t be a bad idea. Directing an episode of any number of the limited series they are developing could be a great fit. It would give Evans the opportunity to further hone his directing skills, but do so while working with people in front of and behind the camera that he’s already familiar with. While it still isn’t clear if this will happen, Evans directing an MCU production could be what Joe Russo was referring to when the director mentioned Evans wasn’t quite done with the MCU, despite wrapping on Avengers: Endgame.
