Chris Evans He thanks his mother for his role as Captain America after she urged him to reconsider rejecting Marvel's blockbuster. I could go nowhere without being recognized.

"I just thought, 'Why isn't there a place I can go to hear both sides of an issue in a succinct way that I can trust?'" Chris previously said about the site. I can walk my dog. I want to make it clear that this website has nothing to do with my political opinion. And the idea of losing's scary for me.

'I said to him, 'Look, you want to do acting work for the rest of your life? If you play this role, you will have that opportunity. "You never say never". The explanation does leave one question unanswered, though.

Now, nearly a decade after Captain America: The First Avenger premiered in 2011, it's hard to imagine anyone besides Evans in the role. If you take the part, you just have to decide, "It's not going to affect my life negatively - it will enable it.' " Evans, who also starred in the 2005 film "Fantastic Four" and its 2007 sequel, took his mother's advice and played Steve Rogers, aka, Captain America in 10 Marvel movies. Evans, along with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, is widely acknowledged to have laid the groundwork which gave birth to the sprawling MCU and kickstarted a race among all the major studios to establish their own cinematic universes. Considering how he said goodbye to the role in last year's unbelievable Avengers: Endgame, the fact that he nearly didn't take it is shocking in and of itself. Starting with last year's Knives Out followed by this year's Apple TV series Defending Jacob. The trailer for the miniseries has met with critical acclaim, proving that there is life after the MCU for actors despite fears of typecasting typically associated with those who have been a big part of prominent franchises.

Evans said he is close with his dad G. Robert Evans III and was supposed to be named after him. This comes from Esquire.
