A couple of months ago, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo sent a few fan theorists back to the drawing board when he said that Chris Evans of Captain America fame is “not done yet,” before adding that people will know “soon enough” what exactly he means by this remark. Assuming this wasn’t another red herring from the Avengers: Infinity War helmsman, it would be all too easy to interpret the claim as a tease that the character of Steve Rogers has further projects lined up beyond Marvel’s Phase 3. But according to a new report from Jim Hill, Disney could be calling on Evans in a very different capacity.
The Disney and entertainment industry insider has tweeted that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has allegedly offered Evans the opportunity to direct a few episodes for the Marvel TV shows headed for Disney Plus. And while this report has yet to be confirmed, this isn’t even the first time in the last week that we’ve heard the rumor that Evans might helm some future Marvel projects.
As it stands, it’s unclear which series he might be a part of, with the 2014 relationship drama Before We Go being all we’ve got to go on for the actor’s filmmaking style. Though it would be tempting to suggest that he might work on the reported Falcon and Winter Soldier TV show given all the times he’s performed opposite those two characters, it’s currently believed that the Loki series is a lot closer to being production-ready.
Time will tell if anything comes from this new report, but regardless of what the future holds for Evans, we’ll find out if his onscreen alter ego has at least finished his run when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
