AceShowbiz - Chris Evans may not be suiting up as Captain America again after his appearance in upcoming "Avengers: Endgame", but it seems like his stint with Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn't stop there. A new report suggests that the actor has been offered a directorial duty for Marvel's new project on Disney Plus.
Entertainment journalist Jim Hill recently took to Twitter to share that Marvel allegedly wanted Chris to direct several episodes of one of their upcoming live-action TV series which will air on Disney's streaming service. "Interesting new development on the Chris Evans front ... To keep him on the reservation, so to speak, after 'Endgame,' Kevin Feige has supposedly offered him the opportunity to direct a few episodes of those limited series that Marvel Studios is prepping for Disney +," Hill wrote on Twitter.

Both Chris and Marvel have yet to comment on the matter, so it's safe to take it with a grain of salt.
However, fans assume that if the rumor is true, it would be great to have Chris direct a few episodes of "Falcon & Winter Soldier" series. Featuring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier respectively, the project previously announced that they had tapped "Empire" writer Malcolm Spellman to pen the planned limited series.
There's no word about the director for the series. With that, fans can hope that Marvel and Disney will consider Chris to serve behind the lens.
Chris is set to return to "Avengers: Endgame", playing Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America for the last time. The fourth movie of "Avengers" franchise will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, "Avengers: Endgame" will arrive on April 26 in the United States.
