Chris Evans as Captain America

Actor Chris Evans is nearing the end of his Marvel film contract... with two projects left -- both being the Avengers: Infinity War films. However, he's eager to extend his role as Captain America... if Marvel wants him.

"Listen, if Marvel wants me, they got me," he said in a recent interview with Collider. "I've never had such a relationship where you have such -- I mean look at my resume. I'm used to being on set, being like, 'Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?' Marvel just can't stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It's wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it's like a playground as an actor."

Evans is set to reprise the role in Captain America: Civil War, which is due out May 6, 2016 -- his seventh appearance as the Marvel superhero, which includes his brief cameo in Thor: The Dark World and the post-credits scene of Ant-Man.
