“I said that I directed last year. I really responded to it. I really enjoyed it,” Chris shared on the morning show. “I’d love to focus a little bit more on that.”

Chris added, “By no means am I planning on retiring. It’s kind of a silly statement. But I certainly am going to try to focus a bit more on directing at this point.”

    Apparently someone at Marvel must have gotten to him and said st_fu about retiring and whining and moaning…be happy you’re playing Captain Marvel and enjoy the ride for the few years it will last.

  • Tyla

    @hmm: Agreed. He has a hero image to keep up now and can’t be full of anxiety and trash-talking his own performances. I feel really bad for the guy, though. He’s stuck playing Captain America and he hates it.

  • Isabel

    @hmm: Definitely. He just had that article come out where he made it sound like playing the role was the equivalent of getting his teeth pulled over and over again so I’m sure someone spoke to him about it.

    Chris should be grateful being part of Marvel franchise, if he said no back then he would be never be as famous as now.
    Many struggling actors would gladly take his place.

  • Brother

    You all swear he even said that because heaven forbid that the media blows it out of proportion. From any interview you read or actually watch he said he wanted to direct more, if anything he doesn’t want lead rolls but rather take supporting rolls. Calm down people!

  • Brother

    And yes I have money that Variety just jumped on a soundbite to sell more off if it, the recorded interview after with collider you could hear him exasperated having to fix this mess.

  • Amy.E
