After nearly a decade after making his first appearance as Steve Rogers aka Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the 2011 film Captain America: First Avenger, Evans is ready for audiences to see him in a new light. His last appearance as Captain America was in Avengers: Endgame.
He will now feature in mystery Knives Out directed by Rian Johnson.
A media source quoted Evans talking about Johnson’s script saying, “It's one of those scripts that you burn through the type of movie that I like a lot and that I don't think gets made often enough.”
“I typically play magnanimous good guys and leaders, so this was a fun opportunity to play someone who is just out for himself. It was great to have that chance to stretch," he added.
Rian Johnson spoke praises of Evans, "It was fun in the wake of his fantastic Marvel arc to play with how the audience perceives Chris. You get to see more of his range and how great his acting chops are.”
The Lions gate project will release in India on November 29.
