Chris Evans Talks to Scarlett Johansson About Returning to Marvel Universe & Captain America's Ending

Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have a long history together, from working together in the 2004 comedy The Perfect Score to starring together in the Marvel franchise and eventually having the biggest movie of all time with Avengers: Endgame.

Now, the two actors are reuniting to talk about their careers in a conversation for Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.

Scarlett asked Chris if he’d be open to returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after his character’s demise in Endgame.

“You never say never. I love the character. I don’t know [...] It’s not a hard no, but it’s not an eager yes either. There are other things that I’m working on right now,” Chris said. “I think Cap[tain America] had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together.”

Scarlett added, “It was such a beautiful cathartic ending, and I loved that for Steve. I think he deserved that. It was all his happiness.”

“It’d be a shame to sour that. I’m very protective of it. It was such a precious time, and jumping onto the movie was a terrifying prospect to me. I said no a bunch of times, and there’s a million and one ways it could have gone wrong. It almost feels like maybe we should let this one sit,” Chris said.
