With two new films hitting in the next two weeks (Puncture and What's Your Number?), Chris Evans has been making the press rounds. The Playlist caught up with the actor and managed to get a question out about potential upcoming appearances as Captain America in Marvel Studios' cinematic universe.
“They may wait until 2014 until they release the next 'Cap'," he said, "Marvel has a lot of balls in the air. They aren’t going to cannibalize their films.”
That means that after appearing in next summer's The Avengers, Steve Rogers is likely going to lay low for two years, presumably then taking over one of the already-announced Marvel release dates of either May 16 or June 27, 2014. Unlike Robert Downey Jr., who appeared between Iron Man and Iron Man 2 in The Incredible Hulk, Evans suspects that cameos are out. Contracted for six films altogether, Evans believes he'll split his roles between three Captain America films and three Avengers films.
“Out of those six films, if I pop up in one of those [other films], it counts as part of the deal," he continued, "So if they needed me in a third 'Cap', and I say, ‘F–k you, give me $30 million,’ well, they want to avoid that.”
