Chris Evans Agrees With Tarantino That Captain America Is the Star of Marvel Movies, Not Him; Says ‘No Time Soon’ When Asked About MCU Return

Zack Sharf Digital News Director Chris Evans said in a new GQ profile that he agrees to an extent with Quentin Tarantino’s recent claim that Marvel killed the movie star. The filmmaker said last year that people go to see a Marvel movie because “Captain America is the star or Thor is the star,” and not because they want to see Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth. Evans somewhat agrees.
“That was the beauty of working on Marvel films. You never really had to be front and center,” Evans said. “Even in your own films sometimes.
Quentin Tarantino said it recently and I was like, you know, he’s right. The character is the star. You’re there, but you don’t feel the burden of it.” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige disagrees, telling GQ, “I think it’s something [Chris] was telling himself, and I think it’s something many of the Avengers, including Robert, would tell themselves, which actually was very helpful to the process.
But in certain cases, including Chris’s, it’s not entirely true.” Evans originated the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America in 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and he went to either lead or appear in 11 marvel movies over 9 years. He exited the franchise in 2019 with the release of “Avengers: Endgame.” He’s said in the years since that he’d never rule out a Marvel return, which he reiterated to GQ. “I’ll never say never, just because it was such a wonderful experience,” Evans said about playing Captain America again.
“But I’m also very precious with it. It’s something that I am very proud of. And like I said, sometimes I can’t believe it even happened.
