Los Angeles, March 26: "Captain America" fame actor Chris Evans has hinted that he is ready to give up acting for directing.
The actor makes his directorial debut with upcoming movie "1:30 Train".
When asked when he plans to hang up his "Captain America" shield, he said: "That's a good question. We can do this out loud, 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' will shoot till August. I wouldn't be surprised if for all of 2015, we didn't do a movie. I bet that by 2017, I'll be done."
"I've known for a while I wanted to direct. But (time) never really opens up. There's another movie to do, there's another acting job. It just got to a point where I was like, you know what - I have to do this," he said.
He also revealed that if he continues to act it will be under Marvel Studios contract, reports aceshowbiz.com.
"If I'm acting at all, it's going to be under Marvel contract, or I'm going to be directing. I can't see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I'm contractually obligated to do," added the actor, who has featured in Marvel's movies like "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "The Avengers".
