Captain America star Chris Evans would love to return to the Marvel Universe as Johnny Storm
In a new interview with MTV News Evans is asked if he ever thought about one day when Johnny Storm a.k.a Human Torch return to the Marvel Universe. Evans played the character in the two Fantastic Four films from the 2000s long before the MCU was formed.
In the interview, Evans is visibly impressed by the idea.
Wouldn’t that be great? No one has ever come to me with this before. I mean, I don’t look like that anymore either. That was 15, almost 20 years ago. Oh my god I’m old. But I love this character very much. I believe… power [Marvel] not exactly anything [Neues] with the Fantastic Four?
That’s correct. Marvel is currently working on a Fantastic Four reboot. It has long been said that Jon Watts, the director of the recent Spider-Man trilogy, who takes over the staging. But he recently left and is now directing the new Star Wars series Skeleton Crew starring Jude Law at Lucasfilm.
