Chris Evans: 'It's Almost Terrifying to Think About' Saying Goodbye to Marvel

The 'Captain America: Civil War' actor discusses why having another Marvel movie in the books is somewhat bittersweet as he has wrapped the fifth film in his six-picture contract with the studio.

AceShowbiz - Chris Evans discusses ending Marvel run in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. The 34-year-old actor wrapped filming third Captain America movie "Captain America: Civil War" in August, marking his fifth film in his six-picture contract with Marvel Studios.

Chris explains why having another Marvel movie in the books is somewhat bittersweet for him. "It's almost terrifying to think about these being done," he shares, "It always feels so good to kind of wrap and just say, 'Alright, one more down.' But it's also kind of like high school in a sense. You keep looking to when you're going to be done, and we're almost done now, and you're not quite ready for it to be over."

When his contract with MCU ends, Chris, whose directorial debut "Before We Go" hits U.S. theaters on Friday, September 4, says he will turn his focus to directing. "I love acting and I'll always love acting. It's my first love," the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" actor says. "But I really enjoy [directing]. I'm kind of excited to take the knowledge I acquired during this process and apply it to the next one."

In an interview with Esquire back in April, Chris gave a hint that the upcoming two-part "Avengers" movies, "Avengers: Infinity War Part I" and "Avengers: Infinity War Part II", would be filmed back-to-back for nine months starting in the fall or winter of 2016.

"We start ['Captain America: Civil War'] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I've got some downtime and I can do with it as I please," he said, "I don't know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I'm creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the 'Infinity War', I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That's going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back."
