Chris Evans would love for his Marvel character Captain America to appear alongside Tom Holland in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Chris Evans wants Captain America to appear in the new Spider-Man film.

The 'Captain America: Civil War' star would love to appear alongside Marvel newbie Tom Holland in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' or in the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' sequel.

He told MTV: "Guardians would be fun wouldn't it? I mean, but that's very outer spacey. Cap's more of an earthbound guy. Maybe the next Spider-Man [movie]. You know those are going to be fantastic and I think Tom's such a great actor so that might be a fun one to pop up in."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old actor previously admitted Hollywood is "radically different" for men than it is for women.

He said: "You can't stick your head in the ground like that. Being a guy, it's a radically different landscape. I think there is a gender gap that is ubiquitous in Hollywood, and I think a lot of times it's hard to even identify.

"It's not even about the contracts [or pay]. If you look at that project there's probably about nine roles guy roles and one girl role. So even before you get to the point of money there's already an issue going on underneath."

And Chris is thrilled he took on the role of Captain America, insisting it was the "best decision" of his life.

He shared: "When I first got the offer to be a part of this franchise, the thought of a multi-picture contract that could last eight years of my life was stressful and scary. But doing these movies was the best decision of my life.

"The directors, the Russo brothers, have a way of making it feel extremely relatable and real amid flashes of superhero fanfare."
