Chris Evans’ Mother Convinced Him To Take On The Role Of Captain America

The role of Captain America wasn’t Chris Evans’ first stint as a superhero. Many of us remember him as Johnny Blaze in the first big-screen effort to bring fans The Fantastic Four. Even though the moniker was passed on, He will now and forever be out Cap. However, he had to have some convincing to take the role.

Chris’ mother, Linda Evans was the person who talked him into taking the role. Check out what she had to say during an interview with Esquire below.

“His biggest fear was losing his anonymity. He said, ‘I have a career now where I can do work I really like. I can walk my dog. Nobody bothers me. Nobody wants to talk to me. I can go wherever I want. And the idea of losing that is terrifying to me.’ … I said to him, ‘Look, you want to do acting work for the rest of your life? If you do this part, you will have the opportunity. You’ll never have to worry about paying the rent. If you take the part, you just have to decide, It’s not going to affect my life negatively — it will enable it.’”

Words of wisdom from the wise. Thank you, Mrs. Evans, nerds around the world are forever grateful for this. While It appears that Evans is done with the MCU, with him going back in time and all at the end of Avengers: Endgame, you never really can tell with the Marvel films, it’s possible he may return in some capacity one day.
