'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' star Chris Evans is planning to take a break from acting following the end of his contract with Marvel

Chris Evans is planning to take a break from acting following his contract with Marvel.

The 32-year-old actor stars as the titular character in forthcoming 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', and is currently filming 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' where he reprises his role as the superhero, but is planning to take a step back from acting in the near future.

He told the UK's Glamour magazine: "I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting.

"With acting, you're one piece in a very big puzzle. It's like you helped buy a gift but you don't know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's tragic."

The hunk is glad he made his directorial debut with '1:30 Train', which he also stars in alongside Alice Eve and Mark Kassen, and reckons he'd regret it if he chose not to.

Quizzed on '1:30 Train', Evans added: "This process, you're involved in every single decision. If I hadn't done it, I'd be really kicking myself.

"At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move."

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan
  • UK release: 28 March 2014

Just as the titular hero (Evans) is adjusting to life in the 21st century, SHIELD turns out to have been infiltrated, and he must team up with Black Widow (Johansson) and Falcon (Mackie). A highly enjoyable conspiracy thriller with stunning action sequences, outstanding performances and a clever, morally complex plot.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

  • 4 stars
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Joss Whedon

  • UK release: 23 April 2015

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
