Captain America Star Chris Evans Says He Will Basically Quit Acting

Like many, many actors before him (seriously, see here), Captain America star Chris Evans says that he wants to retire from acting. Mostly. Except for three more superhero movies. And then he's totally done. “If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he told Variety. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” Evans, who is appearing as Captain America for the third time in this next weekend's sequel, The Winter Soldier, must complete three more movies for Marvel, including next summer The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Chris Evans is retiring. He is 32 years old.
