"The Fantastic Four had a lot to do with my concerns about playing Captain America,"
admits Chris Evans to the Toronto Sun
. “Those Fantastic Four movies… how do you say this correctly? This is where interviews get tricky. If you’re going to get locked up in a long-term contract, you’ve got to make sure the movies you’re making are movies you’ll be proud of. With a lot of movies I’ve made, I’ve had something to question. And the Fantastic Four was a three-movie deal (though only two were ever made). Captain America was a six-picture contract (counting three Avengers movies). And Robert Downey Jr. had already set the tone with the Iron Man movies, there already was a following. So those six movies were for real.”
He then shared thoughts on finally accepting the role and being given the opportunity: “Had I not done these movies, it would have been the biggest mistake of my life, my biggest regret – and there are plenty. In retrospect, Marvel has been a beautiful element in my life, affording me the opportunity to do such things"
Finally, about Fox's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot and the actor now playing Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, Chris Evans says, “I think it’s great that they’re picking it up again,” There’s a lot more story to tell. And I think Michael B. Jordan is just a phenomenal actor.”
