Chris Evans Wants To Retire From Acting After Captain America Role

Chris Evans says he wants to retire from acting after his contract with Marvel is up.

In an interview with 'Variety', the 32-year-old says: "I've known for a while I wanted to direct. But time never really opens up."

"There's another movie to do, there's another acting job. It just got to a point where I was like, you know what -- I have to do this."

Evans has a deal with Marvel to appear in sequels for 'The Avengers' and 'Captain America' over the next several years but he says that's it.

Although he admits, “Without these movies, I wouldn't be directing. They gave me enough overseas recognition to greenlight a movie. And if I'm speaking extremely candidly, it's going to continue to do that for as long as the Marvel contract runs."

"For all I know, in five years, I might say, 'Sh-t, I miss acting.' Right now, I just want to get behind the camera and make movies."
