Chris Evans faced trepidation over his 6-movie Cap deal
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Evans said: "There's a certain apprehension initially. When you do movies one at a time, there's a certain level of control you have in your career. “With a six-picture contract, if one of these movies comes out, [and] there's a positive response and as a result your personal life and your level of anonymity is altered. You may potentially need an opportunity to retreat and regroup. And if you have this contract, you may not be afforded that chance," he added.
Recently, it was announced that the next Cap film will be released on the same day as the much anticipated Batman v Superman film dubbed Man of Steel 2. Marvel boss Kevin Feige IGN’s Jim Vejvoda: “We're still on that date and we're going to be announcing soon what the movie will be on that date. That's what we're sort of actively working on as we get ready to firm up and get into pre-production what will be the two films for '16 and the two films for '17.”
