Chris Evans is eager to return to low budget films after playing Captain America in The Avengers series.
The actor, who is currently filming the conclusion of the franchise in Atlanta, Georgia, recently revealed he prefers the intimacy of smaller scale productions.
“There’s something refreshing about that intimate exchange with the other people involved in a smaller film," Evans tells The Wrap in a new interview. "You feel like you get your hands dirty."
Though known for his appearances in blockbusters, Evans routinely appears in small films such as The Iceman and this year's (17) Gifted.
The 35-year-old also shared that though he is proud of his work as Captain America, he finds the process of making Marvel movies to be like a factory line.
“Those Captain America movies are great, and I’m proud of every one of them, but on set they’re giant f**king factories, and we spend a lot of time sitting around,” he says.
Yet that didn't stop Evans from taking on the iconic role beyond the films he was contractually obligated to star in.
“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter,” Evans explains.
“They said they had so many other characters to fit in - Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man - and couldn’t get them all into one movie," he continues. "(I agreed) because it made sense. It’s going to wrap everything up."
Avengers: Infinity War is slated to hit theaters in May of next year (18) while its followup will debut the following year (19).
