Evans to have break post Marvel

Chris Evans has said he plans to have a break from acting once he gets to the end of his contract with Marvel.

The Captain America star said that he had enjoyed having a go at directing and thought it gave him a lot more opportunities to create a whole film than he would get as an actor.

He told 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."

Chris, who made his directing debut with the romcom 1:30 Train, in which he appears with Alice Eve, hinted that he would be looking at spending more time behind the camera.

He said: "[In] the [directing] 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."

Chris can be seen in his latest Marvel film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in cinemas from March 28.
