Chris Evans is on his way out. Yes, I know. It’s sad. Regardless of how things end up with Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame, he will likely be putting up his shield for the foreseeable future. But, if you know anything about the industry, you know that once you’re in bed with the studio and you have a good relationship with them, chances are it could lead into other interesting and unexpected opportunities.
This may very well be the case for Mr. Chris Evans. In the past, the actor has expressed his interest in directing in the past — in fact, it was one reason he seemed hesitant to fully embrace the character of Cap early on. Well, according to Jim Hill Media, Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige has offered Evans an opportunity to direct a few episodes of the upcoming Marvel Studios Disney+ series.

Here’s what he said:
“Interesting new development on the Chris Evans front … To keep him on the reservation, so to speak, after “Endgame,” Kevin Feige has supposedly offered him the opportunity to direct a few episodes of those limited series that Marvel Studios is prepping for Disney +.”

So, is this a good idea? Well, Evans’ only directorial effort is Before We Go, a project that failed both critically and financially for Evans. Though, one could argue, that if he was still interested in pursuing directing gigs, jumping onto a Marvel Studios-run TV series could be the way to garner much-needed experience in order to level up his skills.
What do you think? Is Evans the right choice to help bring one of the Disney+ Marvel Studios shows to life? Sound off down below!
